Your prayers got us there! Thank you all! We moved and set up in a day. We opened school the next day! Our Malawian staff completely rocks! With great love, unity, humor, playfulness, determination, sacrifice and commitment, our staff and parents (grandparents, aunties, guardians, etc.) came together to make it happen! Pictures below!!!

Parents Helping With Set Up! I believe we are the first Parent Participation School here! Wednesday March 10th
We moved in morning and set up in afternoon! Our staff is AMAZING! Nobody works harder!
We moved and unpacked and … someone found candy!
Due to circumstances we had to move within a short time period- but God was faithful. Within a day He found us a home- first month free- given to us by someone who loves God-only God does this.
Mondays Staff Meeting at our home- I love these people!
Dear Friends and Family,
I am so blessed to have great people to work with here! We all packed up the school on Friday and moved it on Saturday to Chifundo III.
We have one more week of our break to find a place to rent and God has given us great guidance. All the teachers and staff are in agreement to the way forward. The team work was exceptional! The love of God and commitment to the work God has called them to do was highlighted this Friday and Saturday. Under stressful and difficult circumstances they demonstrated rare faith, courage, and peace.
On Saturday we also moved from the current site to our new home. I am living with my pastor and his wife in a house we were given for free for the first month. It is amazing and definitely God’s protection and provision. We have been settling in and I feel very at peace. This home has so many windows bringing in the light and views of the beautiful trees (avocado!) and a large upper room to invite our friends to come and share a meal with us. Pictures of the house soon!
We are very blessed! This is a week of rest and planning for us all. God has been talking a lot this past last week-giving me so much wisdom and direction from Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Joshua and Isaiah. I would be lost without knowing and seeing that He is right here with me, helping me, guiding me, and providing a way for me.
Thank you all for your love, support and prayers!
