Merry Christmas to you from Malawi from our Family to you and yours.

As this year draws to a close, we are continually thankful to be blessed with such amazing friends. To be in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers is a blessing that can never be measured; yet we see the results here everyday. Here are some recent stories from people in our church and Bible school that really encouraged us.    The first example is from our own family. Today as we sat for prayer with Julie and Pr. Albert I could hear our children playing in their room in the background. They were singing worship and praise songs. That brought a smile to my face and later I asked them what game they were playing. They responded, “church”. I came to find that they had built a stage with Legos and were making their Barbies lead the Worship service. What a great encouragement to see God make His way into their little lives. I can imagine Jesus right there in their midst smiling with them as they glorify God with their joy.    I think again of a visit we made to one of our church members …

A little visit to the "Warm Heart of Africa"…

Jude 1:22 – Some have compassion making a difference. I asked myself a question the other day…what is the quality that I love the most about Christ. The one that stood out is His compassion. I thought about when He touched the leprous man in Luke 8, or when He looked and loved the rich, young ruler. He identified with each person He saw and had a ministry of compassion to them, even if it was a hard saying. By the Grace of God, that is the spirit we would like to have here in Malawi with every person that comes through the threshold of our personal space.
     After spending a few hours in Malawi you can’t help but have compassion on people with the hardships they endure on an everyday basis without losing their joy. Most Malawian homes have 1-2 rooms. There is the small living room where most everything happens and the bedroom for the parents. The children sleep in the living room on the couches or reed mats, while the parents have their room. Most Malawian homes don’t have electricit…

All DAY THE JOY OF THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH
