|The TLT participants from the CRC SL - if you're wondering, I'm in the back row, about 5th from the left. The "tubabu" (whiteman).|
Along with Revs. Ezekiel Sudu and John Phiri, I facilitated material designed to help pastors discover Biblical teaching on these subjects for themselves through discussion, Scripture reading and intentional application to ministry.

There was good participation, a keen hunger to learn and grow, and enthusiasm to ensure that 'Action Plans' would help each person put what they learned into practice.

I had various responsibilities, including driving a 4X4 pick-up truck the two hours down a dirt road, which seriously rivalled any in BC for off-roading impressiveness. Very few folks here drive a 'motocar' and, selfishly, it was also a good way to ensure I got a seat with legroom.Ella, Maria, Jacob and Naomi remained in Kabala and fended for themselves quite well while I spent time in the village. We were happily reunited yesterday (Friday).
|I can't remember if this was worship or an 'energizer' time - there is (thankfully) some wonderful overlap between the two in the CRC SL.|
I am thankful to God for his grace ... in my preaching failures and water-purifaction ones!
