Here in Mbala our week is taken up with school for everybody. Moses comes in the mornings at 8 AM and helps me by helping the children with their school work. He gives them the tests they have that day. They read their reading books to him. He also does flashcards with them. I still have to do lessons with them in the afternoon, but he helps make that time shorter.

At 9 AM Wigan and Doreen come to our house and help Steve and me to learn ciBemba. They are our Language Helpers.

Miriam who is 3 years old and her youngest child is asleep on her back.

These to are acting up here.  They are both talking, so I'm not sure how you learn language.

I thought you might like to see a little bit of what we do here in Mbala, Zambia. Our first year is spent in language study so that we can communicate to the Zambians in their own language.
