While at Bush Camp there was a bigger task than just thriving in the African bush -- living in tents, showering in portable showers, and using squatty potties. For the first few days the adults climbed onto the back of the below truck and went into the little town of Petauke, Zambia. Just like in Lusaka we had a daily assignment, a topic of African culture to learn about most days. We also practiced evangelizing and telling our testimony in an African context.
|Lee and I were at opposite corners.|
That is me in the white shirt -- far right!
|He is in the back....where he can help people off and on....of course!|
Unfortunately I didn't get very many pictures in the town. One day Lee and I ran into the children who were on a field trip to the market there in the town.
|Looking at all of the goods that are for sale at the market.|

|Lee and I and our helper Amos. Everyday we ate a fritter and drank a soda .|
|First we would set out on foot going out to the entrance of the camp.|
|Group by group we would get on the 40/40 van and ride to our villages.|
|Here I am with Heather and Carrie waiting for the van.|
|Then we would go on foot to a village.|
|As we walked we saw this basketball goal.|
Our helpers told us that it is only girls that play this.
|These were some homes in the village.|
|Another home.....look at the painting on the side |
and the plants they have set in front of the house in containers.
|Trying to find people to talk to was difficult.|
It was harvest time and EVERYONE was in the fields.
|Then we came upon these men working on a house.|
|Guess who wanted to help???|
|Then we saw these girls going to get water.|
|Kids iron school uniforms|
|Young girls tending the fire|
Here are the girls on more of their field trips.
|In a market....learning how to bargain!|

There were a few days that we were able to have family time. This particular day we went as a family to town on the truck.
|Can you see the view???|
|At a store in the market....they have the coldest cokes in town!|
We really loved Bush Camp!! It was the favorite part of 40/40 for all of us!!!!
