Arriving in Lusaka


This comes to you from Zambia! The trip to Lusaka went very well. All the luggage arrived and Customs waved us through with hardly a glance. We felt surrounded by a cloud of prayer. Thank you!


Today was the day to meet Chanda Chewe Luchemba. To give you a brief context, Sister Deb knew of a medical student from her area. Chanda has been a medical student for three years and was now having to face discontinuation of his studies due to lack of funds. Sister Janice contacted Dr. Mike Elliott, Chief Medical Officer at Avera McKennan to see if some physicians might be interested in supporting Chanda. Once presented with the opportunity the Medical Executive Officers decided that the medical staff would support Chanda for three years. He needs $1000 each year.

Upon meeting Chanda we experienced him as a bright, pleasant young man. He was very considerate and totally grateful for the support. It was a delight to meet him. We took a picture which we will send once we find a computer to read our camera card. We exchanged email addresses so now we have the ability to stay in touch. Thank you for making this possible. It was a heart warming moment!
