Happy Holidays from Livingstone, Zambia—the home of Victoria Falls. Near the Zambezi River, over 100 children came to play basketball. Kristen Jacob, from Lexington, Kentucky, along with Gorrette Mwape, one of our local students, taught the fundamentals of basketball to our children from the villages. The daily temperature was around 100 degrees (F), and training lasted four to five hours. One day was rained out, so Kristen helped build a toilet in Munyanya Village.
