Every mission trip packs bags full of emotions from joy and delight to heart wrenching compassion.

We experienced great joy and delight in seeing:
  • The kids at WCS again – how they have grown, and their enthusiastic greetings
  • How well the school is doing
  • The team work together and seeing their gifts and talents emerge
  • God at work through the lessons to touch the hearts of many children with the message of Christ 
  • The joy of the kids and the team members as they interact
  • God at work in the hearts of each team member
  • The attendance of the parents/guardians and community at the end of the week, when the kids sang and presented the puppet show
  • The aspirations of the Children of Wisdom for their future
  • The enjoyment of the kids while participating in all the activities of Camp Wisdom

Heart wrenching compassion came as we saw/heard:
  • The stories of some of the Children of Wisdom who are living in very dire situations (see some stories in the days to come at the WCS website) 
  • The children who aren’t in school and hang around in the community
  • The poverty in the community 

In Zambia, we are constantly reminded that strong, godly, intact families are so important there and here. Back in our office, we continue to fight the good fight to preserve and strenghten families with homes that love and honor Christ.

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6:12

Another exciting development is WCS classroom building #3! We met with a contractor and are negotiating details to begin construction of another classroom building. It will have two regular classrooms, a computer lab, and a smaller classroom for a kindergarten class.

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

Our love in Christ,

Donna and Ed Edwards

P.S. Pray for our wisdom as we offer God’s healing to couples.
The water that I will give him will
become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life. 
John 4:14b 
LIVING WELL is a life source, not a life style.
