Ahh missionary life...
You all know that we have been here for 6 months now. We are loving living here and what are doing. The daily life is still adjustment. As we are told you (as Americans) will never fully be adjusted. It really is just a whole other world over here. Things are just different. Not bad different just different. Ask me in person one day. Maybe I could explain it to you. So- Okay so I am looking for things I love and that is the people. The people here are amazing. They live life to the fullest way they can. They work very hard and life is simple. They don't have much but They are such a community in every sense of the word. They don't do it alone. It really does take a village to raise a child. They all invest in each other. So awesome to be apart of. We get to see it even in our kids. We went over yesterday to a students house (Good and Christina)for an official Malawian Meal. Including Goat meat, Nsima (what they eat as a staple) cabbage, and other things that I don't know the name of. So much fun. But as Nya and Analise played with the Christina's kids that all I heard was laughing. As we left she tells us that Those kids were the "funnest kids in the world" How fun for her. They didn't even speak English. What a treat to hear that. That is an experience I pray that she will never forget. So next week they come to our house for a real American dinner! Spaghetti! Oh I don't what I will have! I pray that we will invest in people like that and that be apart of the community. We are thankful that we get to be here and impact our community. Students, staff, and workers that come and go. I pray that we will radiate Jesus in all that we do. Thank you all that are supporting us! We feel it daily. Thank you- Amy Louise
