Rose Malekano and myself in 2008 after a day of work for Esther’s House.

Rose taught me alot about Malawi culture as we walked the dirt roads and shared the Gospel with villagers.  Her gentle voice and subtle smile are so precious to me now.  We met in 2004 on my second mission trip to Malawi.  Her husband Pastor Charles Malekano had been my interpreter the year before and they both are faithful servants of Christ and an example for all of us.  I was so thrilled to have her as my partner and interpreter that year.  We shared our faith with the people we met and our heart with each other.  I left knowing I had a true sister in Christ that I would carry with me the rest of my life.  I wondered if I would ever see her again this side of heaven.  To my delight we had the joy of meeting up in the United States when she and Charles came for a visit and I had them in my home for a few days of there time here.  What a sight to watch them experienced their first movie in the theater “One Night With The King”, which is the story of Esther.  We have a bond that is built on mutual faith in our Savior and I thank God for them.  They always tell me I am family to them and I am honored and humbled but such words of affection.  What I witness in their walk with the Lord is complete devotion and sacrificial giving for the sake of the Kingdom.  They plant churches in Malawi, disciple a new pastor, and then move on to plant more churches.  They have been replicating this process for years.  Only heaven knows how many people have come to know Christ because of their service to Him.  So when you see this picture pray for the work that these two “local” missionaries pour themselves into without thought of quitting.

    Cindy I would love to keep in contact with you in whatever way possible. I want to learn more about Esther’s House and what all you will be doing there. I would love to financially help you with this mission, I need to discuss it with Gary but I am hoping to help you in some way…whether it be a one time donation or monthly. Of Course I will be praying for you daily, I love you sooooo very much and I am so humbled by your decision to leave your life in the states and your family to Follow the Lord and His Will for your Life! Once again I love you so much and will be praying for you 🙂
