New Life Center Zambia - A ministry of the United Methodist Church
2013 Summer Months Update # 1

Delbert & Sandy Groves

Dear NLC Partners,

Each year after the summer months are over we send out an update on all that has taken place. And these updates are very long so I’m going to try to break these up for you over the several days. We have a lot to share. We have had six work teams come over and we have been wonderfully busy!

Let me start with one of the great missionaries we know and blessing to the New Life Center. Emily Padilla started her after school tutoring ministry with us this year, and she has jumped right in and helped in every way she can at NLC! You will be receiving updates from her as well! She is excited about all that God is doing through her and the New Life Center ministries! Sandy and I love her!

Our summer teams (or actually winter for us in Zambia) started in May. This was a family team for us in that it included Delbert’s brother, Dan (who is a Wesleyn Pastor in SC), and our nephew Dillon. They came to help us with setting up the new PET Zambia workshop on the additional piece of property behind the New Life Center that we bought last year. It was the beginning stages of setting containers on the buildings foundation. These will later be part of the walls of the workshop. It was a joy to share ideas and get things in place for all the additional work to come (More about the progress later). It’s always a special time when you can share ministry with your family that has heard you talk about Africa for the last 30 years!
