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.

COZV Athletes

A group of our students participated in a regional track competition, with a number of them gaining wins. Djolo and Lisedi ran with times fast enough to qualify them for the national competition recently held in Swakopmund. Both did very well, and Djolo received the bronze medal. In this photo he is standing next to Frank Fredericks, a Namibian world track champion who currently sits on the International Olympic Committee.

Goty and Petro have been playing soccer on a regional adult team and have been offered spots on a team traveling to Windhoek this week to play in the televised Coca-Cola Cup.

Wonderful Visitors

Much excitement was evident this week at COZV as Travis and Lorna Curry, our newly appointed COZV directors, arrived on-site for a visit. The Curry's will return to the states in order to complete their training and support raising, and hope to have everything in place to serve COZV full-time sometime in the fall. The children, the staff, and the local community all greeted the Curry's warmly and are looking forward to having them move in.
