After a brief layover in the DRC, we were in the air again, and on our way to Lilongwe. The Kamuzu airport in Lilongwe has received some cosmetic upgrades, but on the road from the airport we were greeted with the Malawi we remembered. Not a lot of cars, but loads of pedestrians, goats, chickens, bicycles, mini buses, and the occasional ox cart. With beautiful farms, dusty red roads, and blue sky as a back drop.
Nick and Megan Lamoureux live in the same apartment that we had, so it was comfortable very quickly; we even went grocery shopping at the same stores. There’s something to be said for familiarity.
On Sabbath we were back in our old church hall, it was wonderful to be reunited with our brethren. We received so many hugs, handholds, and smiles. As well as beautiful special music.
We’ve been given the (sometimes challenging) privilege of serving God’s people, and God has placed us in a variety of places. We leave a bit of our hearts wherever we’re go, and we’ll always be grateful for our time and these relationships we’ve been entrusted with. We’re not perfect, we make lots of mistakes, but I always hope that God’s people know that we love them, and everything we do comes from a place of love.
