The last 6 months in Malawi have been really great. I was invited to share at the Bible school with a group of women from all over the country. We had such a great time sharing experiences of God’s love. By Holy Spirit’s leading, we prayed prayers of forgiveness, prayers of thankfulness, and prayers of rejoicing for what the Lord has done for each one of us in our lives. Joanna Morrison and I shared together of the miraculous nature of God’s creation.

Most people ask, “How’s it going there Sarah?” I find this question to be a bit overwhelming! I have several things flash through my mind but not many that I feel I can share due to their graphic nature.  Many stories and visuals that leave us a bit squeamish at the details provided.  I find myself wondering do people really want to know the truth of 'the third world' or is it better left unsaid and only reported on when there's mass casualties.  How do we truly love 'the one' in front of us and try to help on a larger scale to change and move deep seeded poverty?

There was a horrible disaster in Malawi this year. A flood wiped out several villages, entire buildings, houses; metal bridges were literally washed away. Babies drowned on the backs of mother’s who were trying to save them.  There was nothing left for thousands of people in Malawi. A desperate situation for many became a nightmare. Little children couldn’t find their parents. People were trapped on ant hills and grasping to tiny trees praying that they could hold on tight. Gardens all throughout the country were stripped of years of toiling the land.

In Malawi there is a road system that is too well known. It requires you to slow down to a speed that feels like crawling, and if you been in Malawi for some time you will know that this is a sign of respect for a funeral. The grieving family will place tree branches on the road as a sign to slow down. I’m telling you this because nearly every time I’ve driven outside the base since the floods in January, I’ve needed to slow down because someone has died here around Nsanje District.

One of our Iris girls recently had her 16th birthday. On the eve of her birthday she ran over to my house wanting to spend to time with me. We were chatting about life and getting ‘older’. I asked her what she wanted to be for real when she grows up. She took a minute and then said, “I really do want to be a teacher.” She continued to say “I am going to be a teacher here and they will not even recognize where I have come from!” Curious about what this meant, I asked her to explain.
