Line's Trip to New Day

I have been waiting to post about Line, our volunteer from Denmark! Line grew up in Mapanza back in the early late 70s/early 80s when her mom led a women's craft center, teaching local women to weave and sew. Line lived here and attended local Chibwe Basic School when she was in Grades 1-4. She was so excited to get to come back to Mapanza and see her roots, but little did any of us know she would follow in her mother's footsteps and teach Zambians to sew! Line spent HOURS with our New Day kids, teaching them to hand sew Bible covers, backpacks, and purses! The kids will always remember their "Aunt Lina" from Denmark! Here are a few of the pictures Line took while she was here!

She taught the girls a Danish hymn!

Sewing material (chitengis!) ready to go!

She also spent a lot of time in the mornings with our 4 preschoolers - Justin, Emma, Stanley, & Emmanuel!

She spent some time in Teacher Ryan's Tonga class as well, brushing up on her Tonga, as she was fluent as a child!
