This is a question of how many people does it take to get across the boarder from DRC to Zambia and how much will it cost?

Could not resist this picture.  It was almost like being at home.

This was our great friend at the hotel. He was very attentive and did not talk to much.

At the teaching hospital were we did our NRT training we saw how families come to the hospital and do the wash for the patients and there is how they dry the clothes.  Family members have to bring the bedding, food, water and medicine to their family members. They also clean the room and patient and do all the wash.  We truly do not realize how others live.

This is Neo Natalie.  She is the teaching doll that is used in the training and then each hospital or clinic gets one to take back. It is truly something to watch the attendees get so excited at the prospect of saving just one baby after this training. These 92 attendees will go back to their respect homes and train approximately 2000 midwives.  Imagine if each one saves 5 babies each.  This training is truly an act of love and service to this country.

This is the graduating class from Lusaka.  The white faces are the trainers that donated their time and talents to do this.

This picture says it all in my book

This is one of the trainers, Liz.  She is wonderful and very fun.  This is where she tells the trainees that they are now the professors and will teach others.

Three very proud graduates!!

Graduating class from Kabwe

These lovely creatures were grazing on the hotel property in Ndola

Another visitor at the hotel.  Reminds me of my sisters house in Arcadia.

This is a sports complex in Ndola Zambia.  It was really something.  They do all sports here.
Our time in Zambia was well spent.  We will be returning the end of March to develop a wheelchair project with the program directors, Elder and Sister Dow from California.  We will continue there after they depart and work on a water project and a measles campaign for June.  We have new friends in Zambia and look forward to seeing them again.

Now off to Johannesburg for the Country Directors Conference. We leave Bashi on the 9th and will return on the 19th. Bob is really looking forward to going to a movie.  I think I will try and have someone make two eyebrows out of my one!!!
