The people here struggle so for just simple things like clean water, shoes, clothes, a little tylenol for headaches. Their eyes tell just a part of their story. What Samfya Community Care Providers are doing here has been amazing and only God could do this. In the last 5 years since I have been coming this community is pulling itself up, surviving, building new homes, new businesses, a new hospital is going up. Like all the fires that occur here daily to burn the bush/grass so new plant life can sprout up, Zambia is slowly springing out of the turmoil it has been under. There is still a huge amount of work to be done but things are definitely moving in the right direction. Our hosts, Mark and Carmen, with their two young daughters, are truly God's lights in this area, leading SCCP, challenging them to achieve more, helping to empower them. I could not imagine two better people for this job - God knows how to pick them! We are heading out of Zambia over the next few days but we all will likely be back.
