Hello all!
Drew and I are back in lovely Samfya, Zambia.  The main town is doing very well - they actually are paving many of the main roads in town - a definite sign of change!!!  SCCP is now called CHA - Care and Hope for All and mainly doing outreach to the surrounding communities and islands.  Bright Hope and Willow Creek are still a strong part of the effort.  The downtown market is growing, more things available locally, a new bakery in town and growth all around.  It has been beautiful out here, in the middle of their "winter" - 80 degree sunny days, 60 degree windy nights.  Mark and Carmen are doing very well, both their girls are away at a mission boarding school.  Today we went to Hudson's Church - a very small start up community that is slowly growing, now about 100 members, meeting in a nearby pre-school building but trying to fund raise for a new Church building.  Hudson is doing well. This week we will be out to his farm/pre-school to see how things are going with his Hudaga project, to encourage and maybe help the building process, but he says things are well.  We will also be exploring Kaishe and see what else can be done with this village about 100km from the main town.  I'm trying to absorb as much information as I can to see what God has in store for our new group, Africa Hope Mission.  Lesa omepale!  mike and drew
