Soccer from COZV

Two great weekends of soccer and hard training brought the COZV teams to great wins and a tough loss.
The girls competed and won a tough and exciting match against a team on the Botswana border.  They went out with nerves and came in with confidence and a win. They sang the entire way home (over an hour trip).                                                                
                                                                                     Maybe the visit from a stranger helped them ???

By the last weekend, two matches were scheduled (one girls and one boys) and the road was flooded.  Soooo, some started out on foot and some went by boat.  We left at 9 in the morning and got home by 8 at night.  It was quite the journey.  Travis and I came back in by foot, in the dark, through the bush, through the water.  Scarey but God kept us safe and we were glad to be home! 
SORRY about how spread out the pictures are.  I cannot get them to move anywhere!

Scarlet, the dog, followed us the whole way out of the village (since we were walking) so we just loaded her on the truck and she became our mascot dog that day :)
