Here comes our first blog from Zambia!! It still does feel a bit unreal to actually be here, after all the preparations we went through.

After a long flight, we got a great and warm welcome from our team leaders and the whole team. This made it really easy to start here smoth. In the first few days we had a opportunity to see some parts of the city, Ndola. Going shopping, buying our Zambian sim cards,… Little by little we get to know the life here better.

Our first impressions of the country, city and people are  good ones and we are glad about it.

Next week we will meet up with close to all the Liebenzell missionaries, working in Africa for a retreat. We really look forward to meet more of the bigger team. Afterwards Lusaka, the capital will be our place to live and study for about 10 weeks. It’s the culture and the langugage (Bemba) what we will be studying. We are excited to see how we handle this.

Here are some pictures for you.
