Hello Emmaus Community!
Charles and I want to let you know how God has been working in our lives on our Fourth Day Walk.
Diana Whitely recently politely reminded me that its been 20 years since our Pilgrim Walks!! We can tell you that we had no idea at that point that God would be calling us to Africa. But here we are, about to get on a plane on March 13th to head to Zambia for 4 years as PC(USA) mission co-workers. Many of you know that we have been active in missions in Africa and this is the next chapter. We will be living and working in Lundazi, Eastern Province, Zambia and Charles’ will be teaching improved agricultural practices to the seminary students at Chasefu Theological College about 20 miles north of Lundazi. While Melissa doesn’t have a defined role at this time, she knows God has already prepared the way for the work he has planned for her once we arrive.
We are so excited to be able to tell you all about this as the Emmaus Community had a strong impact on our lives and we believe it helped us be the people we are today. That is why we are so excited to share our story with you all. We are attaching a copy of Our Story that tells about the call God has placed in our hearts. We are also attaching our prayer card. We need your prayers as we begin this journey! But we would also like to have you join us on the journey. Here are some links that will make that easier:

We hope to stay in touch with you all as we begin the work in Zambia that God has called us to. Please let us know if you want to be included on our contact list to receive notifications of new blog posts or newsletters – either by email or snail mail.
