Welcome friends, old and new, known and unknown! It has been my desire to share with you how the Lord is working in my life as I serve the Lord on the mission field of Kabwe, Zambia. There is an old black and white movie called The African Queen. It is about a boat that travels down river. This blog is not about a boat. It is however, about my travels on the mission field of Kabwe, Zambia. By the way, did you know that my name means queen. For many years I have been burdened for souls in Africa. That is why some of my friends call me African Queen.

My Sunday School Class

In January, our church divided up the children's ministries even more 
by providing an 11-13 year old Sunday School class for boys and one for girls.  
I was very excited to teach the girl's class. 

We have been studying -
Who is God?
Who is Jesus?
What about Heaven and Hell?
What is sin?
- by studying through the New Testament.

This young lady is one, of a number of girls, 
who have accepted Christ as Saviour after one of our Sunday School classes.

Many times, attendance reaches over 42 girls in this small classroom space.
Like in April, when we used up every chair 
and had to use some small benches to seat everyone.
Every week of April, I had to stand against the wall in a corner to teach 

We currently have over 15 girls enrolled in the Bible Reading program.  Some have read over 10 chapters in Matthew and have answered questions on what they have read.

In 2015, we are working on the whole class memorizing Psalm1.

During the month of April, I challenged them to memorize Proverbs 31:10-31.
Over half of the girls memorized part of it, 
with 4 grils having all 23 verses memorized in just 4 short weeks!!!

Praise the Lord for girls who want to hide God's Word in their hearts!

Psalm 107:35
"He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, 
and dry ground into watersprings."

As you know, dry season was a hard time.
Farmer's fields were catching fire.
That fire would burn all of the grass they needed to feed thier cattle.
Times of drought and dryness seem hopeless.
Everyday, you find yourself peering up at the sky 
wondering if the Lord will send the rain "today".

In November the rains should come, but November came and went.
We hoped that December would bring the hard rains and
yet it only brought a few showers.

By January, we were still only having light showers,
but thankful for every drop of rain.

I thought about the many blessing that the Lord gives us.
We should be thankful for the small things, 
not just for the large showers of blessings that God gives us.

After all, big or small, they are all gifts from the Lord.

Even though we have not had enough rain 
and rainy season is supposed to be over,
God continues to send those small showers to sustain us 
through the dry times.

Psalm 63:1-8 
1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: 
my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee 
in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
 2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
 3 ¶ Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
 4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
 5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; 
and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
 6 When I remember thee upon my bed, 
and meditate on thee in the night watches.
 7 ¶ Because thou hast been my help, 
therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
 8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

Health Update: On the Road called RECOVERY

Went back to the doctor for a checkup today and he said I have alot of scar tissue from the infection. Also put me on a homeopathic to strengthen my blood and to help build my immune system. Still very tired. He says it will take a while to get back to "normal". I cannot tell you what it means to have prayer warriors. Being on the mission field away from family and friends helps you to see how God brings people around you to help and how He uses people from afar to pray.
