Heading to Zambia tomorrow!

We cannot believe the time has come to head back to one of our favorite places on this earth. Our bags are not yet packed (nothing like waiting until the last possible moment), but our hearts are prepared and we are ecstatic to take off!

This year, we are getting to share this trip & experience with some of our closest friends & family. It will be surreal for us to see Hope's Home up and running- a dream that has only been a vision & work in progress for the last 2 years. The first 8 children moved in a couple weeks ago, so we will spend majority of the time intensely mentoring, loving, and playing with them. During the afternoons, we will visit other orphanages, schools and villages around Lusaka. 

Every night, we will update this blog with pictures & stories from our day. We hope you will follow us as we journey to the other side of the world, and pray for us as we spread God's love & message to His people in Zambia. 

Thank you for your support, prayers, and encouragement along the way. We fly through London tomorrow, and will arrive in Lusaka early Wednesday morning. We will probably post our first blog Wednesday night (Wednesday afternoon in the U.S.). 

In His Name, 

Ellen & Clayton Kershaw
