You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Genesis 50:20
This verse is our theme for the week of Camp Wisdom in Zambia. This graphic is for the t-shirts that we will give to each of the kids.

We picked Joseph as our Bible character for the week of teaching. No other life of an Old Testament character has as many similarities with the life of Jesus. Joseph endured many of the same hardships as Christ but never wavered in his faith. No one else showed forgiveness as Christ did in such a dramatic way.

“When we collect the details of Joseph’s life we see a glorious reflection that closely mirrors another life we are so intimately familiar with. In fact, when you look at a list of the details, sometimes it’s hard to discern whether we are talking about Joseph or Jesus. This is not because Joseph was Jesus’s favorite Bible hero he wanted to emulate. It is because God is sovereign, and he has been laying the tracks for the glory of Christ throughout redemptive history.”  Erik Raymond

We are leaving for Zambia in less than a week! 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 four people on our team who have not been to Africa before. Part of our excitement is seeing them experience Africa and the mission for the first time. [click here for more info on the mission]

Team (clockwise, starting in upper left corner):
Terri & Jack Bailey, Donna Edwards, Charlie Beair, Beth Autry, Anita Powers, Ed Edwards, Sherry Beair, Paula Cobb, Tonya Ward, Georgia Abbott

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

Our love in Christ,

Donna and Ed Edwards

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.
