Mosi-O-Tunya Hallelujah!

Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church - Outreach - Blogs - TEEZing Out The Roots

Over the Easter holiday we managed to wrap a check-in with some previously trained African Indigenous Christian Counseling students, a visit from the one and only Mina Haddad in from Capetown, many meals with colleagues in ministry, and a trip to Mosi-O-Tunya (more commonly but less adequately named Victoria Falls) into our celebration of the resurrection.  I can think of no better way to grasp the beauty and power of God for this celebration than being engulfed in the mists and rainbows of The Smoke that Thunders (translation for Mosi-O-Tunya).  Hopefully you will get a small taste of the wonder in the pictures below.

 
 
First you see the mist (or smoke) as you drive by the Zambezi River
 
Then you see the falls in their full glory
 
 
Perhaps the most breathtaking view and feeling is that of the void surrounding you as you enter the mist
 
 
Rainbow Bridge...you get to walk through the rainbow
 
 
Mina, Rev. Hopkins Changwe, a rainbow, and I
 
 
Another view, in case you missed it
 
 
Rev. Hopkins Changwe at the Boiling Pot, where you see the waters still churning from the falls as well as the bridge to Zimbabwe
 
 
Mist powering through the canyon, moving at the same speed as the falls
 
 
Standing with one leg in Zambia and one leg in Zimbabwe, overlooking the Zambezi
 
 
A double rainbow as benediction
