We all enjoyed the trip to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross very much indeed. It was a tremendous privilege to preach in the cathedral at the celebration service (5 hours long – but it passed quickly: so much happened!). The President of Zambia, Michael Sata came, and brought with him his cabinet (+Kenneth Kunuda – now “Father of the Nation”), the judiciary, the heads of the Zambian armed forces and the diplomatic Service! It was broadcast live on Zambian TV.
We the enjoyed a lunch together in marquees on the cathedral lawn. We visited Chainda and were pleased to discover the classroom we built being used daily. A charity from the Netherlands had just completed a library and books were arriving as gifts from British schools. The younger children sang to us which was unforgettable.
