On Saturday, I got to finally go into the Zulu Village of Embo.
|Ladies on visitation|
Karen (the other missionary) and I met 3 other ladies from church.

Our goal was to visit some of the "Gogos" from church.
(In Zulu, "gogo" means granny.
They are the older ladies and that is what everyone calls them.)
First, we visited the lady closest to the church.
Then, we went a little farther.
Down a narrow path,
winding around the hills and valley,
passed many other houses,...
Some places were hard to walk and without sure footing.
Finally, we arrived at this Gogo's house.
At each home we:
sang a few songs in Zulu,
talked to the Gogo about her health,
she shared prayer requests,
one of the ladies shared a Bible reading & challenge,
and then we sang this song.

I found out afterward that this Gogo was 102 years old!

It was such a great time visiting with the Zulu ladies
and encouraging them in their walk with the Lord.
Many more people need to be reached.
Please pray that I will learn to speak and understand
Zulu more, so that I can talk with the people on my own.
