A full house gathered at Lagland St on Tuesday 1 September to hear about our recent contacts with Zambia.
David Foster welcomed everyone before handing over to Matt MacDiarmid who led us in a short time of praise. This concluded with a song with actions in a local Zambian dialect.
Matt then presented on his gap-year trip to Amano Christian School telling us what he had been doing for his ten and a half months in Zambia. Amano’s website is at:
When Matt had finished David continued with a report on the trip he and Pauline had made to Zambia, particularly focusing on the work amongst the street children in the copper belt area of the country.
After a time for questions we were treated to some local Zambian delicacies – thanks to Pauline and Flora. We also had the chance to re-live the terrors of Matt’s bungee jump on his visit to Victoria Falls.
We were entertained, encouraged and challenged about our response to the needs in Zambia and around the world. The harvest is still plentiful…and the labourers are still few! For those interested in Amano’s response to Matt’s visit use this link to the Amano website blog:
David finished with a five point challenge for us to consider in relation to the needs around us
Input by Giving
Input by Going
Let’s be up for the challenge as individuals and as a church. Who will PCF be sending next?
It was a great night – thanks to all those who contributed.
