With Thanks



      After 7 years as directors at Children of Zion Village, Travis and Lorna Curry will be moving on to other work. They have done wonders in loving our children and staff as well as loving the local community. With their hands and hearts they have moved the Children of Zion ministry forward. We will miss them and are sorry to see them leave, but we trust that God has hand picked their replacement and will continue to bless the outreach and care at COZV.
     Please join our Children of Zion Board of Directors in thanking Travis and Lorna for their years of service with us in Namibia. It has been a pleasure having them serve with us. We pray that our loving Lord gives them a time of refreshment and rejuvenation and then directs them on the path He has waiting. And may He bless them abundantly for the love they have shared with many. 



A NIGHT IN NAMIBIA, sponsored by Evans Funeral Chapel, was an evening filled with a wonderful dinner, energetic African dancing, beautiful video of our COZV children, inspirational stories, Tracey Tiernan as our emcee, an amazing silent auction, and wonderful people who came to learn more about our outreach to orphaned and vulnerable children in Namibia.


A special thanks to our corporate sponsors who made this event possible.

Just as our own children grow up and "leave the nest", some of the children at Children of Zion Village are starting to make their own lives. 
A few of our older children have gone on to independent living.  We pray that they stay true to the faith they have found in Jesus and share His love with others as they strive to honor Him with their lives. 
A number of our high school children have recently begun "outschooling" and are attending high schools in the community.  We pray that these children hold fast to the lessons they have learned and use their faith to help them make the good decisions as well as work hard on their academics. The Lord has plans for each one of these.
As our older children are "transitioning", we now have two new little ones!  Twin baby boys were placed with us at just one month old.  We pray for the health of these little babies and pray that they would feel the love of Jesus surrounding them through the care of our Children of Zion Village family.
