Peace Network (PAPNET) and all individuals who have supported us one way or the other through prayers and any other support.

This training was good for PAPNET in that it created opportunities and avenues for the world to know and acknowledge peace efforts that have been done in Africa. This platform created a peace mission partnership of Christina my wife and me to explore peace missions in Africa. Our first port of call is rural Luapula in Zambia. We also explored possibilities of empowering African immigrants who are perishing in the Mediterranean waters.

One of our participants was Crispinus Ouma Pamba from Kenya who works with African immigrants in Italy. He shall be our reference person.

We managed to plant a tree of peace called the snowball tree and had a big graduation ceremony as I celebrated and thanked each participant in style by singing a song and reciting a poem

for each and every person coupled with the Zimbabwean mbira instrument.  Amani Milele (Peace Forever) Lance
