Picture This

I've just uploaded some new pics to my Flickr site. Half are from our Youth grad trip to San Francisco this past May...and I finally finished the roll last weekend! The other half were experimenting with long exposure shots at our Youth Leader retreat at Cultus Lake (Photos featuring Megan Stewart). So if you want to check it out CLICK HERE or on the "Photographs" link in the side bar.

As for Zambia I will hopefully give a more detailed update soon. I am getting closer to reaching the financial goals. I am about to start a new job and continue to be involved with the youth ministry and worship ministry at Bakerview. More to come on these things.

In May 2005 I made my first voyage to Zambia as part of a team from TWU. Our fearless leader for that trip was Stephanie Brink and on September 8, 2006 she is heading back to Zambia to work with Action Zambia just like I. She is a midwife and I know God will use her to do amazing things there. I had hoped to be able to go with her but God has other plans so I'm excited for her and look forward to meeting up in January! Pray for her as she makes the long trek!
This is a picture from this summer when Steph came up to BC and we got a chance to meet up, eat some Thai food from a sketchy looking restaurant, chat about Zambia, and take a self-photo using the trunk of my car!

Why So Much???

So the question I seem to be getting asked the most when it comes to this is trip is: Why does it cost so much to live in a developing country like Zambia? Well, here is a first hand account from Susan Hundshamer who served in Zambia with Action that will hopefully be a little more helpful to you!
