Zambia Trip Update #15 July 27, 2012

Our last full day in Zambia began in the morning darkness as we piled into vehicles to head to the nearby game reserve to do our best to find some animals roaming in the wild.  We managed to see impala, baboons, monkeys, giraffe, wart hog, elephant,zebra…and so the list goes on!  We even had the fortune of seeing 2 rhino, thanks to an armed guard who took us…on foot!…to go see them.  That was a special little bonus for us all.  Mid morning we stopped along the Zambezi river for a snack, and to take in the beautiful surroundings one more time while we were still able.  As monkeys closed in on us, we decided it was time to get back in the cars, and off we went.

After a few more hours of taking it all in, we headed back to our ‘camp’ for lunch and then off for some more bartering at the shops for items to bring home for families and friends. Our evening meal of pizza was fantastic!

We have been so blessed to have had this time in Zambia.  As we all pack up and head to bed, we trade the excitement of heading home to our loved ones, with the reality that we are leaving this wonderful place…for now!  We have all learned a lot about ourselves, we’ve been challenged how we can live and serve better as believers in Christ, and we certainly have formed new friendships that will last much beyond this trip.  Certainly none of us come back unchanged in some way or another.

Thank you for being a part of this trip, and for all your support and prayers.  We have needed and felt them for sure, and ask for your prayers for our safe return to our various homes across the USA.  We should be back in New York by 6 am Sunday morning.  A few more pictures are up on the Facebook page!

Goodnight from Zambia, one last time…
