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 stay with my people, my house, my little corner, I know this and sometimes it’s hard for me to get out there too.. I like my safe quiet place. But we have been called to reach out and love people.
So here are some pictures of the past few weeks visiting 2 of our sister churches. Next week we will be going 2 hours away to Senga Bay to visit another of our churches with the Slivas and we cant wait!
Sunday morning at the new church Plot!
Below is our new church plant in Lilongwe Area 25, an area closest to the airport on the outskirt of the capital. Pr Jervis and his family started the church 6 months ago with a small team, all sent from our main Greater Grace Church in Lilongwe.
