Everything is going very well in Malawi! During our travel, we saw God working in many ways. In the Orlando airport, our bags were almost exactly 50 pounds. One was over and as we started to pray, the number on the scale changed to 50.0! God really worked out all of the details! We know He is still working on our luggage situation as we did not receive 18 of our bags, but God knew that we couldn’t fit any more on the bus/truck to the base. We are waiting to hear that our bags have arrived.
Our team has been very healthy. One team member had a little bit of motion sickness on the plane, but other than that, we have been doing very well!
The team traveled to Benga yesterday morning and I (Lindsey) went into Lilongwe to purchase our food. I will join them again this afternoon, so there may not be another report until we return from Benga next week.
The team has really grown together over Boot Camp and our time here so far. They enjoy being together and they sing any time they have a chance (including the entire 3 hour drive from the airport). They praise the Lord all the time. I am so thankful for each one of them and their desire to grow in the Lord!
