On July 4th we were so happy to welcome Luke's mom and youngest sister Cassie! Their first week here was a chance for them to see what our everyday life is like; full of soccer, women's netball, a trip to Bangwe soccer practice, Sunday church service, Lyzee United practice (our neighborhood soccer team), and our friend's baby naming ceremony.
On the 11th Luke's dad arrived (he had some business and couldn't come out earlier). And things didn't slow down; more soccer, a party celebrating Christ's resurrection (we are teaching the kids chronologically through the Bible and we wanted to have a party the day we taught on the resurrection), more netball and introducing them to our fellow sports ministry workers.
Everyday there was something to do or someone to meet! Not until the 18th did they get a brake. We took this opportunity to show Luke's family Lake Malawi. It was so incredibly beautiful! After a short trip we spent 23-30th of July at our missions conference for SIM missionaries who serve in Malawi. We were so blessed that Nancy, Dennis and Cassie helped head up the children's program. Lyzee loved having Grammy and Grandpa and aunt Cassie close all the time! Of course we hit the ground running when we got home, Luke is helping head up the Church youth camp which started on August 1st and is still going (there are 400 kids).
Here are a few pictures of our time together.
