Beautiful Malawi

2010 June 16
by Cindy House

Malawi is more beautiful every time I come here.  I have begun my work at Esther’s House and it is such a joy.  There are two interns with me for the months of June and July, Alyssa Stewart and Derek Campbell.  We have had a lot of work to do just getting our house set to live in but we have enjoyed a lot of time at Esther’s House and out in the village already.  We have met with the residential and non-residential orphans that we minister to and shared games and playing.  The children sang and danced for us a welcome song our first day with them and then put on a drama that had them acting as us arriving in the village.  It was so funny and so sweet.

I had a Bible Study with the widows on Saturday and this will be a weekly event.  They were very responsive and they also sang a welcome song to me as I arrived.  Malawi people are so gracious and warm.

We visited two feeding centers and met several of the children receiving one meal five days a week through our ministry.

We have been to 3 different doctor visits serving two children twice and three children one of the trips.  Malaria and skin problems are common and we have dealt with both so far.  The children are very thankful for the care and they are so sweet and obedient as we work with them.  Today I was able to redress a wound on the leg of our electrician as he arrived at my home this morning to work.  These are the moments that I know God has me here for.  It is so good to be in His will working where he wants me to be and serving the beautiful people of Malawi.  Continue to pray for the Lord to grow our ministry and lead us to where He is at work in Malawi.

    Hello my friend,
    So good to read your update and know that things are going well. Miss you here terribly. Things are going amazing well. God is taking care of us as well. I saw Mary in the cafeteria on Monday. She looked great and said she had spoken with you. Pray for you daily and think of you. We are having a potluck and baby shower for Genia this Friday. She is still hanging in there and no baby yet. I have interviewed the young lady from Ohio for device clinic and back up stress testing. She is amazing and I want her bad. Just need to get the $$ right. You know what a battle that can be. Keep us posted with frequent updates.
    Blessings,
    Mary Lynn
