First Impressions!

Hello from Malawi!
The team has arrived and we are safe along with all of our luggage. Here are some updates/highlights. When we arrived at the Lilongwe airport we had 17 suitcases all of which were to be inspected, but GOD is GOOD! The airport manager had been to Roberts Church and knows that he is doing good for the community, so he said, "let the church people through", and they did not inspect a single bag!! we walked out of the airport and paid no duties. Roberts church is beautiful and Jon did a wonderful job preaching! After church we went to a local soccer game where there must have been 1,000 people, it was amazing. When we left the soccer game we were trailed through the village with the kids jumping and screaming onto the car! We had a wonderful local dinner prepared by Robert and some of the other Urban Promise leaders. Today (Monday) we visited a few of the homes of the children who attend Christ Cares Ministry, all of us will have stories to share with you. We also toured around Lilongwe today and examined this amazing city. We all are having a blast and are full of joy. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
Zikomo (thank you)

  1. Great to hear things are going well. Many are praying for you. May the light of Jesus continue to shine through all of you. And tell Bethany the Phillies magic number (9/21) is now 6.
