"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 4:10-11 (NIV)

Day 5, Sunday April 20: Easter in Zambia

Easter Sunday in Zambia was so awesome! New Day Church is held outdoors under a pavilion and includes not only those who live at New Day but also people from the surrounding villages. When you walk up to the pavilion, you go around the circle shaking everyone's hand to greet them. Mwabuka buti---Good Morning, How are you? And the response is Kabotu---Good, fine. I loved the singing part of service....songs in Tonga are just beautiful. 

Part of Easter service included some of the New Day kids doing a performance called The Redeemer Drama. Jenna, a volunteer who was at New Day for 4 months, taught the kids the performance that was motions to music without words. It was so moving and so amazing that these kids did this powerful performance! 

After church service, we went back to The Ark to spend the afternoon fabricating. We worked all afternoon until time for a murder mystery dinner that Jenna planned. The dinner was so much fun...lots of laughter. 

*Next post is Day 6: More patients and fabricating
