Diane and I are very involved in the Baobab School in Lusaka, which all our children attend. I am Chairman of the Board and Head of the Development committee.
Upon completion of the new Administration building the Principal asked the 91 year old Kenneth Kaunda (KK), Zambia’s 1st president from 1964-1991, to officially open the building.

Each year a time away from the base is scheduled by Flying Mission Zambia for its personnel. It serves to give the team a time together whilst away from the usual round of duties at Chilongolo, outside of Lusaka, where the mission operates. It’s a time to replenish batteries. This year the designated venue was ‘Eagles Rest’ at Siavonga on Lake Kariba, which is about three hours driving from Lusaka.
The invited speaker was Desmond Frey and the topic he spoke on was WALKING OUT YOUR DESTINY which people found very helpful. Consequently some major decisions were confirmed during the conference.

“Swimming Galas are not my favourite places”, says Bryan Wilson, Flying Mission Zambia Managing Director. “I go because, well, I have to: I am the Dad!
The boys love them and are doing really well; my wife Diane loves them and shouts louder than any other parent in support of her boys, and I sit in my chair most of the day and do what I am told!” (Really? ed)

Diane Wilson, wife of Flying Mission Zambia Managing Director Bryan, tells of the visit their family made to North West Province recently:
‘It’s always special for me to return to Mukinge Hospital in North West Zambia. It is the place where I worked as a nurse for 2 ½ years from 1998 and where I fell in love with Africa! A new Maternity Ward has been built in the last 5 years to cater for increasing numbers of ladies having babies at the hospital. It looks great. Female Ward, where I used to work, has been expanded to include a ‘High Care’ area. Continue reading “Mukinge Hospital re-visited”
It is the time of year in many parts of the world when the crops have been harvested and the ground is being prepared for fresh seed to be sown. At Chilongolo, Flying Mission Zambia base, the workers are busy getting their portions of land ready.
