walking the streets

first point of clarification - there are no streets here...

the team has arrived in lilongwe, comprised of 8 women from across Canada, with the goal of visiting the orphaned and the widowed in the slums of Lilongwe, understanding more how we as the body of Christ can help here, and helping to start up the income generation program for widows.

our mornings start at 7:15 with prayer, and then we move to the streets, carrying packages to deliver to widows who are caring for multiple orphaned children. our teams are made up of 2 canadians, and 2 malawian volunteers. Our week will wrap up with re-visiting 7 of these homes to collect the family stories to compile into photo albums to be passed on to the children when the caregiver (mom or grandparents) pass away.

so my days have shifted from coordinating the logistics for the start of the income generation program to dirtying my feet on the mud-paved streets of Lilongwe.

sorry that this post is so late in coming. internet has been unaccessible here, and now i am being kicked off because the internet closes at 10:00...more to come tomorrow....

Dirty feet... that's the favourite part.

Love you.

Hi Maeghan, try Eph 6:10 at http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=56&chapter=6&version=31

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

Prayers for wisdom and strength.

Love dad
