Zambia 2016. Part Five

October 10, 2016

The team from the Chicago Heights Church continue working on projects for the Church of the Nazarene in Zambia. We are helping to build the Africa Central Field Conference and Training Center. It is located in the country side outside the capitol city of Lusaka. This project will serve on many levels for the Africa Central Field (ACF). It will be a multi-purpose facility for use for meeting the many training needs as the Church grows quickly on the ACF. It will provide needed facilities for leadership and discipleship development, district assembly, extension education, youth meetings, women’s meetings, men’s meetings, children’s development programs, and will provide an ideal training for Nazarene Compassionate Ministries training, especially agricultural training.

But today is Saturday and we are off to Livingstone on a rainy morning. This is a 6-8 hour bus ride giving us a chance to see some of the country side through the rain soaked windows and fellowship with the rest of the team and missionaries. in the afternoon the rain stops and we start to see a little sunshine as we check into the Ngolide Lodge in Livingstone. This is just what you would expect to see on a safari in Africa.

After a little lunch at a strip mall we were off to see Victoria Falls. This is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and it certainly lives us to its reputation. Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya, is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Victoria Waterfalls are the largest in the world. They measure 5577 feet wide and varies in height from 262- 304 feet. It is estimated that roughly 600 million cubic liters of water hit the ground every minute on the Victoria Waterfalls

There is no way to describe the size and beauty of this place. Anyone seeing this must be convinced there is a God, for this could not be there by accident. Just around the corner is the Victoria Falls bridge that connects Zambia with Zimbabwe.

After seeing the falls it was back to the Lodge and then out for some supper at the Zig Zag restaurant where one of the entrée’s on the menu was Crocodile burger. I decided to pass on the crocodile but enjoyed my meal and we were off to get a good nights sleep.
