Moving to Zambia
As I informed everyone in my last post, we have enough support to live in Zambia. Our plans at this point are to be in Zambia by the end of July.
I had originally intended to make the jump later in the year but I discovered that I will need to renew my work permit by September. As a result I need to be there before that time to process the paperwork. Charles Phiri informs me that it takes about 30 days to process.
The end of July there is a national men’s lectureship scheduled. Siavonga is to be the host this year and Charles would like for me to be there for the meeting. That is at the very end of July.
Work has begun on our house in Siavonga. It is hoped that the walls will be up by early May and it will be under roof by the end of May.
In the meantime we are dealing with all of the things that we have accumulated in the house and me in my office. We will not be taking much of anything with us for the house. We will get that when we are there.
I will begin to blog a bit more as preparations continue and keep everyone updated on what is transpiring in Zambia.
