Newport Beach to Lilongwe

The Lord answered our prayers and Bied and I had a great time at the marriage retreat down in Newport Beach. I only had one headache the whole weekend! We enjoyed our time so much and were so blessed to be able to go away together. We have a couple of real busy weeks ahead before we head back to Malawi. We cannot wait to get home! By the time we get back, we will have been away for five months. We have missed our church family at IBF. Brian is excited to get back into teaching his students at ABC and preaching through Acts at church. We pray that the Lord will continue to use us, however He wills, for the truth of His Word to be preached in Malawi and throughout the rest of Africa. Please continue to pray for full recovery for both Bied and myself and also for the preparations of heading back to Lilongwe...you know it's a long way to "Li - long -wey", as Bied likes to say. Also pray for my mom, she heads back to South Africa a day before us. She hasn't been very healthy while being here. Bradley said the other day, "Nanny, you are 100 years old and your skin feels like a lizard's!" We love you Nan!
