Are you ready for some FOOTBALL!!!!!!
On Saturday we again split up, one large group went to stack more bricks while another small group went to purchase some much needed supplies for Safe Haven. We bought mattresses, sheets, and pillows and dropped them off at the boys home where they waited with joy and gratefulness! We again regrouped and prepared for the highly anticipated soccer (football) tournament. The attendance at the tournament was staggering (the entire community, 2 teams (the Young Destroyers and the Rocky Stars), and many of the village chiefs including the head chief from many villages). We spent the early afternoon playing frisbie, taking pictures, and dancing with all of the children! We had a blast and were pretty dusty and sweaty by the time the game started. It was a very close game and came down to a shoot out. The Rocky Stars reigned as the champions of the football tournament! During the half time, we also had the opportunity to perform the Thief skit followed by a call to salvation and we believe many came to Christ! To end an amazing day/week, we had a nice dinner at the lodge with many of the Malawians to celebrate the week and send home some of the other team members. It was like Christmas morning when we blessed all of the people who have supported us so far for being our translators, tour guides/Malawian experts, and friends. It was a wonderful way to end an amazing week!
