Made it to Shangombo!

Posted July 13, 2016 by Fr. Jim Chambers, OMI

Left Mongu at 9am-made it across the new bridge by Sioma over the Zambezi.  My buddy Fr. Pius met us right at the bridge and escorted us to Franciscan Srs convent in Sioma where we left the van. The roads from this point would not be good for the Van.

Sr. Marian was very hospitalable  and provided an excellent lunch.  In my rush to get to Sioma I forgot to pack a lunch for everyone. The religious of the missions definitely take care of each other!

We left Sioma at 1:30pm and many bumps later we made it to Shangombo at 5:30pm. We are a little dusty and slightly bruised, but very happy to have made it!

We were met by Fr. Richard Chanda, who immediately let me know that he had Kasama coffee for me????.  It will be a good 8 days in Shangombo!!!!
