6 Month Zambian Anniversary
March 15, 2012 § 5 Comments
Monday marked our 6 month anniversary of living in Zambia. It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 months. In fact, I missed posting this on the day itself because we were busy celebrating a national holiday (youth day? Yeah, we hadn’t heard of it either). The time has gone by slow at times and fast at others. We’ve learned so much, have great friends (both mzungus and Zambians), are official members of a wonderful church family, and enjoy adventures every day.
Believe it or not, this picture was from before I had a digital camera. It was also one month before I would lay eyes on my handsome hunk of a husband. We met my first Wednesday back at youth group after I got back from this trip to Uganda. Little did I know, we would be moving to Africa a mere five years later!
The life we live here is not always easy, glamorous, or fun. Most of the time, it just feels like life. We have the same ups and downs, we both go to work, cook dinner, grocery shop. We are far from family and friends at home but we both know it’s where we’re supposed to be. We love the people and place of Africa and wouldn’t trade this time here for anything. Here’s to another 6 months in Zambia!
