As most of you know, we have moved on from our roles in Malawi with zambesi mission, meaning we have not published a blog here in some time.
It was originaly started to allow all our friends and partners to be part of our ministry as we ‘stepped out with God’ into a season of cross cultural ministry that eventually led us to Malawi.
Now (2019) we are settled back into UK based ministry after our time in Malawi and we have decided to stop updating this blog. For the meantime we will keep it live on the web and monitor ongoing interest as we hope visitors might still find the information a blessing.
If you are a Facebook friend with Myles and you are not already a member of our Stepping Out With God Facebook group then message Myles asking to join. We will continue to post there from time to time on Malawi matters. And if you do want to contact us about anything then you can still email us.

The last few months have been hectic so time for posting has been close to zero. We therefore have a few posts to catch up on. This imaginary story is based on the real facts of life for many Malawians and was inspired by a chance meeting with this old woman during the November planting season. Imagine you are this widowed grandmother (agogo).
In June 2016, as we returned from our trip in the north of Malawi, you might remember that we found the ‘New Bandawe’ Station (or Thipura) that Jack helped build in the 1920’s. This was after we became fascinated by the ‘must read’ story of the wonderful Scots couple Jack and Mamie Martin (see the original post here). Continue reading →
Some of you may remember our post back in January 2015 presumptuously titled Sonjeka Village RIP. Back then – still relatively new to Malawi – we were shocked by the devastation that resulted in a whole village nestled in a wide meander of the River Ruo being wiped out in a single afternoon by the rain-swollen river.

Sunday 24th September dawned bright and sunny, and by mid-morning children’s choirs were gathering in the beautiful surroundings of St Michael’s and All Angels CCAP church to prepare for the launch of Ananu Ziimbani. Continue reading →
