The team arrived in Nairobi and have taken off on an overnight flight to Paris. Sleep well!  😴

The Journey Home

Posted: May 12, 2017 in Zambia 2017


The journey home has begun!

Please keep our team in prayer as they navigate a series of four (4) flights over the next 30 hours on their trip back home to Halifax. All is well so far, and I will provide updates on their status as I receive them.

And let’s try and get as many people as possible out to the airport tomorrow to welcome them back!  Their flight is scheduled to arrive in Halifax at 5:59pm (Air Canada Flight 614 from Toronto).  Since it is a domestic flight (meaning they have already gone through customs in Toronto), they should come down the stairs not too long after the flight lands.

In the Bush

Posted: May 11, 2017 in Uncategorized

I just received a message from our team to say that they have had a really enjoyable day out “in the bush”, relaxing and seeing all sorts of wild critters.  They have had dinner and are starting to make their preparations to begin their travels home tomorrow.

Please pray for on-time flights, good connections and friendly border officials!

Going Off Grid

Posted: May 10, 2017 in Zambia 2017

Our Zambia GoTeam have now left their friends in Kabwe and have ventured farther afield for debriefing and a bit of R&R. This also means that they have left WiFi behind so the posts will be more sporadic and photos will be few. 

We do know that they arrived safely at their accommodations in Livingstone, where they will stay until they start their series of flights back home on Friday. Now is not the time to let up on prayer, however.  If anything, pray harder that what they have seen and done will translate into blessing for our friends in Zambia and transformations in the hearts of our team. 

Notes from Pastor Julia

Posted: May 10, 2017 in Zambia 2017

Tonight [Tuesday] we had supper with the Zambian leadership team. They were all so grateful for everything that the team has done. It is so good to be among friends!


When we asked Pastor Lawrence what was his favorite part of our time together was this time – he couldn’t pick! He enjoyed every aspect of what we did. This is what we mean when we say that we are blessed to be a blessing. It is so nice to go home knowing you have been used by God – and we have been able to leave a real deposit, however large or small, in the lives of the people we met.

We were even able to connect with the neighborhood children who live next door to our guest house! [Lillian says “Hi” to all her friends in Canada!]

Whenever we get together with our friends here, we realize what a God-inspired relationship Rock Church has with the community of Kabwe – and we look back with fondness and reminisce over the 9 years we have had together so far. The influence of Rock Church in this area can be seen in many ways. Let’s keep that going!
