Zambia, Part Seven

May 22, 2012

As we finish up our projects on the Central Africa Training Center we continue to find more projects to do. Part of the crew are now working on installing the ceilings of the rooms that have the walls and electrical wiring done. This involves putting up a grid of wood that is fixed to the walls and supported by hangers from the roof rafters.

Once the ceiling grid work is in place the ceiling panels are nailed to grid work to finish the ceiling.

In the meantime the plumbing crew is finishing the water and drain lines for the first four rooms.

By the end of our visit the plumbing was looking good with the drain lines buried and water lines in place.

Once all of the conduit and electrical wire has been run we installed a main panel for the power distribution to each of the rooms.

There is still plenty of work to do on the training center which will take several more work and witness teams  as well as work from the local people to finish the building. We ended our project work with a treat after the evening meal. We were honored with a concert by the choir from one of the local churches called Madalitso. They cane to the Baptist guest house where we were staying and sang several gospel songs for us.

In Colossians 3:16 it says “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”

We truly felt the gratitude for God in the hearts of both the singers and the audience.
