Amy Fann, our GO Team leader in Zambia, checks in with another update…
Just a quick note to let you know that the Zambia GO Team is out of the bush! The outreach was a huge success. We saw many people come to know the Lord and grow in their faith through home visits, one-on-one discipleship, church ministry classes and the Jesus Film. It was also a sweet time of great fellowship with Zambians from all over the country who came to minister to their own people.
The mobile clinic saw at least one patient who will come to the hospital for surgery in September, and we educated a whole community on dental care. Through the donations of several generous dentists from around the U.S., we were able to provide everyone with their own toothbrush and toothpaste.
There was a Zambian who came with us who is trained in dentistry, and she taught a class on how to brush teeth and why we should do so. She was amazing in educating them on the fact that you have to brush even when you do not have toothpaste and even taught them how to use sticks to do so. What a blessing that the Lord provided her with the knowledge and us with the supplies. We did not know about each other before we reached the villages! It is wonderful to see how the Lord weaves the body of Christ together.
We are now spending the rest of the week working at the hospital. I will also be doing a bit of painting.
Please be praying that the rest of the outreach team will return safely, that the patients would make it back to the hospital safely, and that the GO Team would be strengthened to finish strongly.
