We are back home now and were thrilled to SEE, HUG and KISS four precious bundles. The children did fine during the six days we were away. Our friends, Kellen and Becca, who looked after our four bundles plus one of their own, said they were amazed at the hard work you have to do to keep everything running. Speaking of RUNNING, we hit the ground doing just that! This weekend I had two netball matches, one of which I had to umpire (there wasn't anyone else) my skirt and slip slops :0)
I took some pictures of the game we played on Saturday. Netball is a mixture of basketball and ultimate frisbee and I love it!

I have been coaching the African Bible College(red and gold) team since August 2011 and have really enjoyed it. Our team has fared pretty well, especially considering the fact that they haven't played in a league for at least five years. We have one player who is a hopeful for the U21 National Squad. The Malawi National team also known as Malawi Queens defeated continental rivals South Africa 61-37 in October 2011 during the Four-Nation Invitational tournament in Perth, Australia. This win has helped the national netball team to reclaim its top ranking on the continent and also the fifth position in the world. When you see the condition of the courts and equipment and lack of sponsorship it's amazing to see how well Malawi does. The sand court in these pictures is what most girls play on and barefoot too.
