I have officially been back in Malawi for one week. As I walked home from preparing my classroom at the school today, I got to watch the beautiful pink sky as the sun set behind the Lilongwe hills, as I listened to the (newly repaired) megaphone from the mosque, calling people to prayer. Stopping to chat with neighbours on the way home, I get to watch a one year old practice running on his wobbly legs - he started walking yesterday, a group of children playing with their dog in the yard, and enjoy the place that God has brought me to. God is good. He whispered to me on Friday night, while I finished unpacking, "I'm going to make this place your home".
I am settling in, finishing up orientation and classroom preparations, and hope to soon be ready to go for Monday morning when the first of twenty little ones that I am being entrusted with, arrive with their parents to meet me. The excitement is building as the stresses dissipate! Thank you for your prayers as I go into this last bit of time before the big day arrives!
