Easter meeting, rural home and more visitors

Image
Our four day Easter meeting ended with a Sunrise service on Easter morning.  We had a good crowd that attended the meeting and the church was packed everyday.  We had a wonderful time of singing, dancing, preaching, lessons and celebrating the Resurrection.
After church we packed up and Rachel, Samantha and I left to my rural home in Batanai to spend the night with the Mereki family.  The girls got to experience life in the bush from picking soybeans in the field to eating sadza, maize, drinking mahewu, and a big rain storm.  We had a great time and got to sleep and relax over the holiday which extended until Monday here.  Michael, Major's son drove us there and back and boy is the road terrible.  Took us 70 minutes for 25 kms (19 miles)!
Tuesday we were back to work and then joined by 3 high school students from Chinhoyi: Evelyn, Hogan and Zane.  Zane is the oldest son of Nick and Lindale Adams, fellow missionaries in Chinhoyi. All of these kids are interested in maybe pursuing me…

A new visitor and Happy Easter

We welcomed a new visitor on the 25th of March, Rachel Marsh.  She is from the UK and she is here to map out the mission, come up where water pipes and electrical lines are and then draw a map to help us with future planning on where to build and plan for future growth.  She is busy measuring and walking the whole mission and putting it in her computer.  She is also enjoying getting to help and observe at the hospital.  She has helped with weights at an ART clinic and watched a C/Section and a normal delivery.
Samantha continues to help at the hospital and this week scrubbed in and helped out with a C/Section.  We delivered twin girls which was fun.
The youth group went and harvested my maize field at Batanai and brought some of it back a week ago and finished it last weekend.  Just in time as this past week we have had rain almost every day.  It is now drying and we will take it off the cobb and put in bags for cornmeal for the hospital.  The youth do this as their fundraiser to go to…
