Everyday living!

Here are some pictures of life of the last few weeks...  We were able to get to the lake for 2 days with other missionary families and the rest of life happening...
Luke Swimming in Lake Malawi!

The kids in a local hot tub - the only problem is that it has a little hot water in a tub!

The girls at Lake Malawi

Easter egg hunt in our front yard!  In their bathing suits!

Why so serious?  You look like you are rocking it Luke!

This is a local soccer ball. Made out of plastic bags!

The girls loving their new clothes and Mac and cheese that they got in Love packages from family!  Thanks Warrick Family and Slack Family

Luke Loves to read!  That is how he wants to read all the time  on the floor!

Analise and her class!  Her teacher's brother came and talked about being a farmer in Iowa

Nya's Basket ball team!  Love after school sports!

Waiting for the president of Malawi to drive by.  Love those clouds.  

Look at Luke playing with new friends in a local village!

Nya and her classmates!  Malawi is known for their slogan... being the warm heart of Africa!

Life is happening over here.  We are plugging away at everyday living.  Bob has been super busy with classes, security stuff and now has been put in charge of the entire Master's program.  Busy Busy Busy man.  He has been loving teaching his classes and investing in his students.  The girls are busy with school, after school sports and friends!  Luke is almost 19 months and the campus is his world.  He loves loves people and wants to talk to everyone! Kinda like his mama!  So everyday is a new day to go and see it.  With over 300 college students, 100 workers and 400 academy teachers and kids - it is allot of people he gets to hang with!  Love it!   I have been busy being mama!  That includes to many people that walk through our door.

How you can keep praying for us this month...
- That we would keep investing in what God has doing right now.  
- Not lose the vision of what we are to be doing daily!  Our personal relationship with God, family and ministry!

Thank you for praying for us these last few months!  It has been intense!  We could not of made it through many of those storms without of faithful prayer warriors!  
Love- The stauffacher family!
