Catching up

The final few days have been about meeting up with friends whom we used to serve with here in Malawi. I met several when I attended a National Youth Conference, and others I have visited in their homes, or they have come to find me at the ZM office. It has been good to hear about what has been going on their lives and ministries, and to see their growing families.

When I return to the UK I will be quarantined for 10 days in a hotel because of Malawi’s sudden promotion to the Red List. At times I am sure I will wonder if it was worth it! I will try to remember the warm welcome and hospitality I have received with every visit. It is quite humbling to see how much these friends appreciate our lasting interest in their lives – they do not seem to realize how much an encouragement they are to us, each one a trophy of God’s grace.

  1. will be praying for safe travel and for the ten days of quiet when you get back. If there is an address so we can write please let us know…. X

    • Hi Su. Myles here. I will pass on Ruth’s postal address when she gets it. I will do so on the steppingoutwithgod facebook group as it is more secure – you are probably already on that? But one thing that is included in the exorbitant price for the quarantine hotel is wifi so zoom calls and emails will also be possible and no doubt welcome!

      • Hi Myles… no not on the facebook page but will hunt for it… get these updates via email… and I will look forward to chatting but letters and parcels are good too.

  2. This is such a humbling read, when we consider our ‘comfortable’ lives, and how deep is the faith of these brothers and sisters. 1 Thessalonians 1:3
