What I like about my work is I get to travel to different places here in Zambia, meet wonderful people, learn culture and see different sides of Zambia through its landscapes.
When I arrived in Zambia, especially here in the Southern Province I noticed that unlike in my home country (the Philippines), there’s no sight of mountain in the far ends of the view but just plain flat lands. So when I heard that we are going to Chabbobboma, an area of valleys and mountains, I am excited to see a different side of the southern province.
Here’s Photography-inspired by the music of HIllsong United’s People album — Highlands (Song of Ascent) . A devotional photography.
O how high would I climb mountains, If the mountains were where You hide
O how far I’d scale the valleys, If You graced the other side .
O how long have I chased rivers, From lowly seas to where they rise
Against the rush of grace descending, From the source of its supply
‘Cause in the highlands and the heartache, You’re neither more or less inclined
I would search and stop at nothing, You’re just not that hard to find
I will praise You on the mountain, And I will praise You when the mountain’s in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are, So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
No less God within the shadows, No less faithful when the night leads me astray
You’re the heaven where my heart is, In the highlands and the heartache all the same
For who could dare ascend that mountain, That valleyed hill called Calvary
But for the One I call Good Shepherd, Who like a lamb was slain for me
From the gravest of all valleys, Come the pastures we call grace
A mighty river flowing upwards, From a deep but empty grave
