We don't know what to do but our eyes are on you. 2 Chronicles 20:12

This week would have been the time we would travel back to the States for a few months. It's weird to think that we wont have to pack our bags this year. I mean we have been doing this thing every year for the past 10 or so years. And its like our rhythm has been broken a second time this year. 

 Even though we will miss visiting our different churches, friends and family this year, I have to confess I will not miss the packing, unpacking, the in-between many feelings and the transition of it all. In other words, even though we are starting to freeze in this cold weather (Southern Hemisphere guys!), we are fine with staying here this season. Our life will definitely be quieter this time of year that's for sure!!


It seems that our lives here are all about reaching out and being out of our comforts and meeting new people constantly. And sometimes it can be hard and we do have to just go out of our comfort zone. It’s so easy to just be passive and be stuck in one place. I can just …

    In the days before Covid even arrived to the land of Malawi, we had been touched by it because of it touching our friends and families all around the world. Malawi was actually one of the last countries to get cases.  Our international school was closed early on even before we had a confirmed case.

It was such a confusing time as we didn't want to be seen as living in fear. 

   A few times we have been stopped by the police, questioning us about why we aren't wearing masks and why we were still in Malawi. It's like they have found another opportunity to stop and fine us for something because we are foreigners. It’s ok though because its never stopped us before.  Unfortunately, we and some of our national…

Dear Family,
       Undoubtedly we are in a trying season for all of us; a time of uncertainty world-wide.  But what is sure, is that God will be with us in whatever we come across.  Psalm 23:4- "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for Thou art with me."  I remember that verse bringing me comfort when I went through a surgery as a young kid.      In Malawi, we are feeling the calm before the storm, as most Africa is. We have no confirmed cases in Malawi along with a few of our neighboring countries.  Little by little we can see the government take more and more precautions, but for the average person, business is as usual.  On the street as people pass, Corona virus is a byword, but hasn't affected anyone in an everyday person's sphere.  We are getting prepared as a Church and Bible College: we have put our classes on a 2 week holiday, postponed our graduation until September, put hand washing stations at church, and began …
