Bob and I have spent two weeks in Chimwang’ombe village

Sophie had to make this water trip 5 or 6 times a day so we could eat and bathe. Thanks Sophie!

No electricity or gas, all of the cooking and heating of bath water is done on this open fire in the outdoor "kitchen".

Need something ironed? Just drop some of the coals from the fire into this iron!

Malawi

We’re in Malawi and we love it! Semu and Sophie are treating us like royalty. I have fetched two, 1/2 buckets of water on my head from the well (with plenty of laughter). That is heavy! Sophia and I laugh about how lazy I am at clothes washing. I don’t use enough elbow grease when scrubbing. The students laugh when we say : “Moni bwunge”. I sit around the open fire while Sophie cooks nsima, greens and many other great dishes. Their baby, Priska, has just stopped crying about the Azungu who have invaded her home. She is starting to warm up to Uncle Bob.

    If only I could have seen you with a bucket on your head!! I always knew it…you two can fit in anywhere and make friends. Now this proves it. Where are you sleeping? Is it really hot? Just some ?’s you can answer in your next post. You are in my prayers for safety, Usefulness, and an awareness of God’s grace all around you.
    We love you, Jeanne for Dave too.
