Today we've been here in Lilongwe for one week. The flights went fine and we were so happy to be back in our own beds! Thank you for praying. The children were up in the wee hours of the morning the first two nights, but have since adapted to Africa time. Brian is back into the swing of things too. He preached on Sunday and teaches his students at the college tomorrow. Yesterday evening while chatting to a couple from our church, a snake slithered out from under his chair and frightened the lady sitting opposite him-(they happened to be discussing fear and her face said it all). It was a small mole snake, not as dangerous as the black mamba our gardener killed in February.
I am okay, but had two not so good days this week. I had headaches and the body drain, but am much better today and think it will continue to take time to get better completely.
We love being back- seeing folk in our church and friends on the campus has been great. Hearing the birds and seeing open African skies reminds us of God's amazing creation. Climbing trees and digging in mud is high up on the kids' lists.
And when the power went out, Ben said, "Why did you switch all the lights off, Mom?" Praise God for the back-up generator.
