Zambia with Janet Sisco
Dorothy of Mercy Ministries and Janet Sisco from Memphis. Partners in ministry.
We had a great week with Janet who is also from Memphis and has followed God’s call to Lusaka, Zambia. We spent the week getting to know her better and walking through the issues she faces in that ministry.
Her favorite ministry site is Mercy Ministries located just out of town. They focus on a poor village and provide school for 371 students in the area.
We met with Dorothy who started the ministry and is a native Zambian. What a heart and outreach she has built.
I loved the ministry to widows that has old-timey sewing machines to teach the women how to sew. I remember pushing the pedal of my grandmother’s sewing machine in Walnut Grove, Mississippi. Wow. Did this room take me back to childhood memories.
During the week we met with numerous other missionaries who have become friends with Janet. What a joy to see some of what God is doing in the area.
On Thursday we traveled out into the countryside and saw the dam in northern Zambia. The simple villages were fascinating.
The trees captured Cathy’s view. She took many pictures of the special tree.
Tomorrow we leave for Cape Town, South Africa. We look forward to seeing so many friends.
