In Zimbabwe


Christopher and I are in Zimbabwe now on a mission/service trip organized and led by my parents and aunt and uncle. We left a week ago and will be back on Monday, 11/20.

Christopher is helping teach kids (and teachers) in the computer lab at Hartzell Primary School (part of the Old Mutare United Methodist mission), while Mark is helping in an Intensive English class at Africa University for students from Mozambique, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Burundi.

And both of us are having a memorable, thought-provoking, and often quite eye-opening experience. It’s the first time either of been to sub-saharan Africa and our eyes — and many of our other senses, too — are constantly being bombarded with a rich feast of new experiences. As well as many, many things to think about and store away in our memory for future use.

Once we return I hope to post both our photos and a few more thoughts about the experience. In the meantime, more news and information about the trip as a whole is available at: http://vimtozim.org
