Are you a good storyteller? I wouldn’t call myself the greatest but several of my friends are amazing at it. They can take the smallest event and weave it into a magical tale! A good story can transport us into another world or make even the dullest event come to life. However, what’s the difference between a story and a testimony?
It’s been an incredible 6 months of being in America but I am so excited to be heading back in Zambia! These past months I’ve met with current supporters and even welcomed several new supporters to the team. I can’t thank God enough for this incredible group of people who have partnered with the ministry work I’m doing in Zambia with Overland Missions.
As I begin the prep and packing chaos for the two weeks, there are a few things I’d like all of my supporters know.
The Zambian culture is very complex and diverse. With over 70 different tribes in one country, you learn living here that each one is similar yet different. However, greetings play a big role in every single one. Conversations are never rushed and there are countless ways to say “hello.”
One thing I love is the handshake. Zambians have a specific handshake that they greet each other with. It’s kind of like being in a secret club. If you don’t know it, you quickly fumble through, wondering “what the heck just happened?”
