Zambia - Camp Life 2008 Video

ok...this isn't the best edit, but I wanted to go ahead and get something up from our trip. Hope you enjoy!

the thing about this video - if you watch it towards the end as we are giving the gifts away, you see how happy they are just to receive a jacket. For you to understand the significance of this, you have to know that the majority of these children only have one meal a day, if that. That meal consists of a meal mixture that has no taste, it's just something that fills their stomach to survive. Most of them sleep on the floor in the sitting room of their homes. They never get gifts, they don't know when their birthdays are, many of them are abused and nearly all of them have lost 1 if not both parents to AIDS. We didn't just give them the gift, we tied this giveaway in with the whole week where we'd been teaching the the 23rd Psalm, the Lord is my Shepherd. We told these children who have nothing, that God is everything they need and he will provide for them - he would prepare a table for them.
