Phew, what a day. After waking up twice last night I finally slept. Then I prepared for a day of teaching. I was definitely nervous because I did not know what to expect, or how the seminar participants would respond to my teaching. We started this morning with singing in Bemba (which is their native language here). No I do not speak the language, but I do know that they sing beautifully. My “guide” translated the meaning of the songs for me. If I knew how to spell her name I would let you know what it is. After teaching all morning we stopped for lunch and had traditional Zambian food. Then it was back to work…
There were so many good comments and questions. For those of you who do not know, I am teaching on domestic violence to the people who run a ministry called Arising Life Ministries. They are from very diverse backgrounds and have great perspective.
Danalyn and Scott Savage are friends of Northrise who made it to Zambia on the 25th of June 2011. So far Scotts days has been filled with class sessions both in the morning and afternoon while Dan has been involved with the Zambia Police Force and Arising Life Ministries talking about domestic violence and child abuse. Dan and Scott are so lively and looking forward to the arrival of all the others as the Impact Week draws closer. So far, we have a total of 8 friends from the USA.
