Team in Zimbabwe - Day 1 & 2

Thanks for continuing to pray and check in here for updates on our team traveling in Zimbabwe and Zambia! If you haven't already noticed, the Twitter feed on the right-hand side of this page is the best place to get the most current updates. They've just posted 3 updates in the last hour - not too shabby!

We wanted to provide some visuals for you all as you're reading about the people and places referenced by our team.

First, here are a few photos from The Rock Church, which the team visited yesterday. Ryan commented yesterday on the newly installed irrigation system and improvements made to the well that Forgotten Voices helped to drill several years ago.

Today, the team is spending much of the day with Pastor Fibion at the Free Methodist Church. They're accompanying Pastor Fibion as he visits with families supported by the church's ministries. Please pray for God's provision and comfort for the families they meet, and for our team to know the words to say (and the times to remain quiet and listen) as they have opportunity pray with and encourage these families.
