Friends on the Pamoza staff

Let me start off by saying that the roads are extremely bumpy in Zowe. I can’t believe I have survived all of Mr. Mtika’s crazy car rides!

We have been able to do a few household visits–and these are so awesome to experience. We visited Jessie, Rizzie, and Witness. I was able to pray for Rizzie and her family right there with them! We were able to see both Jessie’s and Witness’ houses inside and out! A young woman named Dorika, ask me to take a picture of her. After I show her the picture, she said, “Oh, I am so happy we are friends!” That was so cool how God worked!

Next, we were able to visit the rural hospital. They only have two nurses on staff. The one nurse told us that 45 babies are delivered per month in the hospital. They didn’t even have signs on the doors. Instead, it was a piece of paper taped up with the words written in marker. It was eye-opening to be able to see that.

Lastly, I have had so much fun with everyone on the team! Ms. Muriel makes me laugh so much. Mrs. Orthey, Temwa, Mr. Mtika and I had a great time laughing at all of our great experiences! I couldn’t stop laughing at the beginning of dinner tonight! I am glad that God has allowed me to have so much fun with everyone, including the Pamoza staff and the people here in Malawi!
