On 24th September grades 6&7 visited Mapalo – a community school in the township of Kapisha in Chingola. When we arrived it was shocking because there were a lot of children in the classes and there were only 3 classrooms. The children were very excited to see us and they were surprised as they didn’t know we were coming!
|Sharing a Gospel tract|
Teaching them was hard because they weren’t concentrating the whole time but as we continued it got more interesting. We had taken phonic word building activities, which we had previously made at Amano, maths activities and simple reading books.
We also took lots of copies of the gospel booklet ‘God loves me’ which we explained and gave one to each child. After this we sang some songs.

|The largest classroom|
When it was time to go, the time was delayed because we continued singing songs. Finally we finished singing which was sad, we said our goodbyes and then we left. But, they ran after the bus until we got to the main road.
It was a good experience and it showed how privileged we are at Amano.
