We have arrived!

After nearly 4 years of prayer and seeking God’s guidance, weeks of preparation, many helping hands, and prayers from you, the Hensley family has arrived in Zambia.  We arrived last Wednesday, and have been settling in since.  We are so very thankful that God delivered us here safely, and that He has led us to this wonderful place.   

We are currently staying on a plot of land with a wonderful house on several acres.  We are blessed in that our boys have room to run and roam in a place that is well maintained and is very safe.  We are not sure exactly how long we will be at this house, but could be moving as soon as the first part of April to our more permanent location.  There are a couple of things that have yet to finalize, but we should know the answers soon.

We are already adjusting to life in this country, and are learning our way around town to obtain necessities.  While many people here speak English, most also speak a local language called Bemba.  We feel it is important for our family to be able to communicate in the local language, and we have begun learning as much as we can from the workers here where we are staying. 

Zambia is nearing the end of the rainy season, but as I write, we are experiencing our first Zambian rain.  It is a very heavy downpour, and our younger boys have put on their swim trunks and are outside getting soaked.  We are so thankful they are enjoying themselves, and that overall, our children have adjusted very nicely. 

Internet connectivity has been a bit of a challenge, but we think we will have a better solution in the next couple of days.  We hope to have some updates and pictures posted to our web site soon at www.hensleysforchrist.com, so feel free to check there often. 

Thank you all again for your continued support and prayers!  We will send additional updates soon.
