I am the resurrection and the LIFE; he who believes in Me will LIVE.  John 11:25

This verse is our theme for the week of Camp Wisdom in Zambia. The graphic is the on the t-shirts that we will give to each of the kids.

Our theme this year is the story of Mary and Martha.We will have a lot of emphasize on faith and the importance of choosing to follow Jesus and have eternal life. In the U.S., the phrase “choose life” carries the connotation associated with pro-life vs. pro-abortion. Abortion is viewed very unfavorably. In Zambia, they do not have that conflict . . . yet.

We live in constant tension between the urgent and the important. The problem is that the important task rarely must be done today or even this week. Extra hours of prayer and Bible study can wait. But the urgent tasks call for instant action—endless demands pressure every hour and day.” (Charles Hummel, quoted by Joanna Weaver in Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World )

We teach the lessons through drama, music, and even the crafts that we do.

This year, we are doing something new!

 Three members of our team from Tulsa are staying three days longer in Ndola to train Brother Charles, Pastor Rogers, and other leaders of Wisdom Christ Church in the Celebrate Recovery program. CR has been used successfully in Africa. Alcoholism is a huge problem in the slum around WISDOM Christian School. We pray that this program will bring healing to those in this community.

We are leaving for Zambia in less than a week - May 29! We are excited about the mission, seeing the CHILDREN of WISDOM, and about our team. God has supplied the people we need. We are thankful to Him and to them for answering His call.

We have seven people on our team who have not been to Zambia before. Part of our excitement is seeing them experience Africa and the mission for the first time.

Thank you for your continued prayers, support, and encouragement.

Our love in Christ,

Donna and Ed Edwards
P.S. Please pray for the Zambia mission! May 29 - June 10

The water that I will give him will
become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.

LIVING WELL is a life source, not a life style.
