Friends, Fun, Food


We have been able to spend some time with many friends of ours, who we have missed since moving to Malawi. We've also been eating far too much, but it's so hard to resist all the excellent food down here. The prices have gone up, but of course for us, it still seems 'sort of' inexpensive, because we pay double or more for most things. The kids haven't eaten so much ice-cream in all their lives. We don't buy it in Malawi because it costs so much! R75 for 2 litres or $7.50 for a half gallon. Benjamin has never had it until now and even says the word. Bradley, after guzzling down McDonalds' ice-cream, asked pointing to the cone, "Dad, do I also eat this thing?"

Hi. You don't know me but I was looking for an old friend named Sharon Biedebach. She was on my team to Ecuador for Teen Missions International in 1989. Are you related, or do you know where I can find her?

Your blog is great. How inspiring! Your kids are beautiful and God has clearly blessed you.
