My time is soon coming to an end here in Madisi, and with RiseMalawi Ministries. Shortly after my birthday I will head down to Blantyre, which is a city in the southern region
of Malawi. Although, I have made my committments to Rays of Hope, with Willie Mpsukha, I am sad to leave this rural town. Reflecting on my time here, I did not anticipate the
amount of blessings, and love I would experience here. Nor did I expect to find myself sad to leave small town life for city life. If you know me at all, I often struggle when it comes
to transitions, however I know and I cant wait to see what Blantyre, Rays Of Hope and God will teach me there!
Pray for me as the transistion period has begun. I am no longer tutoring Margaret or Maureen; as the children are on holiday from the 2nd term in school to the Easter Holiday.
Pray as we have 3 days of “Easter Explostion!” with RiseMalawi for the youth to come and interact, to be fed(mentally, phsyically and emotionally) and for Joy to be abound,
for the Lord has Risen! (RiseMalawi will be hosting 3 days of fun/bible lesson/
learning while the youth are on break.)
Also please be praying for safe transport as my huge suitcase and I board a bus to Blantyre. Honestly, I am not looking forward to that part of the traveling
especially if I go alone, but I know God will provide traveling mercies, He has every time.
Lastly, pray that I can have an attitude of readiness and love. In Blantyre I will not be as hands on, for Willie, the Founder wants me to create an Internship Program.
Obviously, I will need lots of prayer for that, but more to come on that once I get there! I have committed two months in Blantyre and plan to keep you updated on all the happenings there.
I have quite a community here in Madisi that is unique to my adventure to Malawi. The communtiy here knows me, due to the time committment here. Its been great getting to know the
people, the pastors, my German girl friends, and most of all the kids, and their families. No longer am I this new “azungu” in town, but I am someone who lives in Madisi.
As nomadic as I am, this is a pleasant feeling to just be a part of the community. On my travels to the Lake and to Lilongwe, I would get the stares and be called “Azungu” because
those communities had not seen me. I am happy that the people in Madisi enjoy my work here, and appreciate the little Chichewa I know. As mid March appoarched, I had a strong desire to return to Madisi
before i return to the states; so for the month of June I will return to Madisi. 🙂 It makes my heart smile when I know I will be back here. Especially knowing that Tinashe wants me back, and
knowing I can see my kids, my town, my neighbors and RiseMalawi before I head back to America on the 27th of June.
Thank you family, friends and fellow travelers.
Please know your support and prayers for me have sustained me. I am safe, healthy and learning new lesson everyday.
