My favorite song right now.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtnE_e1LylY
Wish I could have you watch as the students here sing it! WOW! They tell stories with this song...
There are amazing days that we are reminded of why we are here. A student came to our house telling of his story. As we are the Deans here at the College we are very invovled with stories like this... Edwin- A freshman has been unable to attend classes for about 4 weeks due to a very strange condition that no doctor here has been able to diagnosis. He has had it most of his life and it comes and goes. Well- There are some doctors here that are too expensive for him to afford. As he shared his condition I knew he needed to go to a specialist. For him it is unaffordable but due to people supporting us- it is affordable for us. So we were able to pay for him go see a specialist. So he went there on Wednesday to see him. I saw Edwin after that and he had the biggest smile on his face. I asked him what the specialist said. He said he knew exactly what it was and had special medicine for it. OH YAY! He said he never dreamed that someday he could he have answers for his sickness. I asked him for name - he said he didn't write it down. But there are answers. YIPPEE for answers... I love that Edwin came into our sphere and we were able to be apart of his story that God is using in his life. God carries us through journeys we don't understand But His Grace is Enough... It is enough to carry us to the next day.
This week is Spiritual Emphasis Week. It has been an amazing experience for us and the students. A special speaker has come from San Diego. From Horizon Church Bob Botsford has come to share on Our Enduring Hope. Such an amazing reminder as times get crazy and things go on that we can't control. We have a hope that is connected to an Amazing God. Bob brought his worship band here too. It is has been such an treat to have them here. They are rocking the chapel here at ABC. Nya and Analise want to be in the front row each night as the " cool guys" are leading worship. They are called the Mike Clark Band - They have brought their talents and spoiled us. I love amazing worship!
Well- we leave Malawi in about 40 days - to live in San Diego for 12 months. As we are on home assignment with ABC - we will miss this land we call home. I am so used to it here that I think I will be culture shock when I go home. Home is somewhere here and somewhere in San Diego. Well- thanks for loving us, supporting us and praying for us as we continue to serve here in the amazing land called Africa. His grace is enough for today for you and even Edwin! Love- amy louise
