On Sunday July 17th we visited the Shangombo outstation in Lyasa, Zambia. This is the first blog page that will have a number of videos that I shot thru out our visit. If you don’t see videos yet, come back in a few hours.
As remote as Shangombo is, even more remote is this is small community that has an unoccupied school near to the church. At this time, the area is dealing with a water shortage, which translates into a lack of food.
There is no longer a teacher there because the children would pay the teacher with food. Now that there is a food shortage, they have no teacher for education.
Fr. Pius and Fr. Jim Chambers held mass and confession for the people. Afterward everyone gathered together to sing and dance. They provided our travel team their best food for a meal as thank you for visited as well.
