This morning we got up and ate some breakfast together as a team to prepare for our big day of sports. The boys moved our soccer goals out to a big field just outside of the Poetice base so that we could play a soccer game with the Poetice church community. It was super fun to interact with some of the kids that had been at camp and to meet some more members of the community. The older kids were able to showcase their skills while we tried to keep up, and the younger ones had fun braiding hair and hanging out while watching the game. After lunch Coach V led some of our team and Poetice’s young adults in a softball practice. It was great to utilize the field we built to teach some specialized softball skills that they will be able to teach the youth that are part of Poetice’s ministry. Later in the afternoon kids from the community returned to play volleyball. We all split up into four teams and played a double elimination tournament. Volleyball ended with a showcase game between the best Zambian players. It was quite the show. After the kids left we played our own game as a team until dinner. For dinner we had sloppy joes with some coleslaw salad, and talked all together as a team. We had some time to journal about our day and how God has been working in our lives and then we went out to a bonfire. At our bonfire we talked about our highlights from the day, how we have experienced God, and prayed over the time that we have left here in Zambia. We ended the night with some smores and a game of hot seat around the fire. Join us tomorrow for house churches and more water filters!
See you later alligator,
