Muli bwanji? (How are you?)
Ndiri bwino (I am fine)
This is Chichewa, the Malawian language that we are trying to learn. Right now we only have a few vocab flash cards that we are practicing and we’re guessing at the pronunciation. We know that a HUGE part of the ministry will be learning this language so that we can connect with the people in Blantyre on a heart to heart level. (It’s hard to disciple someone when you don’t know their language.) So to be as prepared as possible our mornings consist of feeding Lyzee, lots of coffee and a quick Chichewa vocab quiz game, loser changes diapers. When we get to Malawi we’ll have a tutor help us learn and use the language. I’m sure Lyzee will be correcting our shaky Chichewa in no time.
Praise the Lord that He is bringing in our support through our financial and prayer team. We are still meeting with family and friends who are interested in the discipleship/evangelism ministry in Blantyre. Currently, we have about 30% of our monthly support. So, we still have a long way to go, but God is providing through people like you! Please pray for us as we wait on the Lord and stay faithful to share what He is doing in Malawi. Our hearts burn to get there!
Happy Thanksgiving and ......zikomo (thank you)!
