Zambia Night...

was a great success!!! We had max capacity in our Cove with people standing as well- don't tell the fire marshall! Dan had a keynote that explained our "life travels" to this point and it was neat for even me to hear it "full presentation style"... and I have lived it!

There were well over 150 people in attendance! There was great fellowship, encouragement and FOOD!!! We love our Donna- she never disappoints! Dan and I ordered logo wear as you can see on Jeremy in the pic below-they turned out great! We may offer the logo wear on our website... "support the Jalowiec Family with the purchase of these first class embroidered golf-style shirts..." hey! You never know!
All around the back of the cove we had table displays, maps and this little vignette- a rough hewn Zambian-style chair with an old and worn Bible on it. It was a real neat visual. (Thanks, Toma!)
And here you see him and Kim making the N'shima that we enjoyed as part of the food- it is a ground corn mash that is extremely hot and VeRy ThIcK!!! Super hard to stir! She did a great job at it though! We had this with relish- a vege mixture of cabbage, onions and tomatoes which is a favorite of mine! (Notice the logo wear again!)

Here you can see it done by a couple of women who have it pretty well mastered... close I think, don't you?

all in all it was a great success. We now know there are many more partnering with us that previously may not have been. Many people want to be involved, and I am thankful for every one of them!

So, since you know how to make nshima and other Zambian dishes - we girls will want to treat Michael to a home cooked meal for lunch one day!
