J.O. Chifundo Secondary School

Isaac took his NASA presentation today to the school in Kalingalinga that was built for my brothers in the late 90s.  I had a great time showing him around and listening to him.  The kids ate up the slide show and asked amazing questions!!

The kids think Isaac's equal to a rock star!

Gracious is a grade 12 prefect and wrote us the sweetest thank you note for coming.
 The principal then took Isaac on a tour of the school and showed him all kinds of things.  This school is a fabulous gem in the community, but the tuition fees are just barely enough to pay the teachers, much less add to the school.  The teachers are trying to have more computers for the students and hope to offer computer classes for an extra fee after hours to educate the community and raise some extra funds.  Don't be surprised if we start asking for your help soon!

It was a great day and so much fun to see Kelvin and our old friends.  Our friend Given's brother, sister, and nephew still live in Kalingalinga, and we were able to visit with them.  Baby Richard is so stinkin' cute!!
Kelvin and Kennedy
Tonight, Lottie and Julian picked us up and we treated them to dinner at a Thai restaurant.  We had such a great visit.  It still amazes me at our ability to have friends so far from home.  What a blessing!
