Week 8 in Matero, Lusaka Ward -- My Cousin Maddie & Pythons

Hey fam!

This was another great week in Matero! This week we had our Zone Conference and Mission Leadership Council (MLC). So on Thursday we had Zone Conference and then our Zone Activity after. For Zone Conference we met at the Lusaka chapel where we were combined with the Woodlands Zone as well so there were a lot of missionaries there. Our theme for Zone Conference was about developing a more Christ Centered Mission Culture. It turned out to be a very good conference. A lot of good comments were made about how we can focus more on being more like Christ sense we are doing the things he would be doing if he were still here walking with us.

After Zone Conference finished we were able to go to Kalimba farm to see some real African Crocodiles! Haha there was also a lot of other animals on the farm. I got to hold a big Python on my shoulders which was pretty cool. (Picture below) We also got to play volleyball and soccer which was a lot of fun.

Friday was MLC. It was actually my first time attending MLC and it went really well. We were able to discuss some of the new changes that will be occurring in our mission soon. We were also able to ask any questions that we have so it was nice.

Sunday was fun as well. I got to see my cousin Maddie!! It was so cool to be able to connect with some family while on my mission! It honestly made me so happy to actually get a hug as well because it has been a long time! Haha

Well all in all it was another great week here in the Great Zambia Lusaka Mission. Until next week!
Sending love from Zambia!!
