Chakakala Village

I spent three days in the village and had a wonderful time. Along with me at the village were our supervisors Mat and Janet, the two new hands on guys, Steve and Bryce, and two translators, Chifundo and Laiter. One of the pictures here is some of the kids playing peek a boo. Later they came and hung out with me. Through out the 3 days we showed the Jesus film and four videos about True love waits and Aids. Both nights we had such a wonderful turn out. The second evening I had an opportunity to share with the village. I was able to tell the people why I am here in Malawi and how I have chose to save myself until I get married. It was a great time to show the women in the village that they can do the same thing.

Art and Music funness!

Here are some great pictures of my students. And yes I know that funness is not a word, but I like it. They are really enjoying art and music and I think I am loving it just as much!I asked the younger kids to paint shapes and they turned out so cool. The older ones are making paper mache drums, and standard 5 is dancing in music. And Johanna is teaching PE and the nursery. Here are the kids doing some stretches. Love it love it!!Cuteness!!

So during the raining seasons we have massive amounts of snails and some of them are bigger than my foot. They are quite gross!! But as we were leaving the airport, we found this snail. No, we didn’t put the flower on him, it already was there and we just had to take a picture! So for the first time we thought this snail was way cute.

Im diving in...

Today we were asked to drive some of our fellowchurch members to be baptized at the Lilongwe river. Pastor Urgent baptized 10 people today. It was so great to see this many people show others that they are part of the family of God. What a blessing!! I hope you enjoy the scenery, not everyday do you get to see baptisms in a river. I also find it quite entertaining that if you went a little bit farther in, I’m pretty sure that you would go right on down stream. The waters were very strong. There are five pictures for you. One is of the river, the second one is one of the girls being baptized, the third is Pastor Urgent praying as we ended the baptisms, the fourth is everyone getting a ride back to church in our truck, and the fifth is one of the girls accepting her certificate. What I enjoy about the fifth one is if you look in the back on the chalkboard it says “please all phones on silent” and then there is Habakkuk 2:20. This verse says “But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.” Enjoy!!!
