Namikango Bible School

The first semester of the Bible School is coming to a close. At the end of the week all the students will return home for a one week break before the second half of the year begins.

Rodrick and Symon continue to improve

Rodrick is attending rehab and still has a lot of pain. If he gets three hours of sleep at night, it's been a good night. But, if there is some task that will help people, he insists on doing it – such is his heart. The line one hears most often from Rodrick when you tell him he's due for a rest, or that someone else can go in his place, is this, "When it comes to serving Jesus, I must forget about my rights." This phrase of his has taught me a lot about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Last weekend for example, he spent two days out in the village teaching at one of our weekend seminars, even though he had been in rehab the day before. The report we heard from that village was, β€œHis work was wonderful.”

Symon had surgery at Zomba Hospital to repair his small intestine. Surgery to the intestines is always difficult, and we weren't sure what condition we would find him in when we visited the hospital just after his surgery. But, to our surprise, he was awake and smiling. For the last two months since the accident, Symon has lived in constant pain – especially at meal times. But, for the first time since then, he was able to take

fluids without this pain. He has now returned home and is making improvements daily. We give praise to God for this and pray that he continues to heal well!

Family Time

As a last note, my parents and brother, Ty, just arrived for a visit after spending some time in Kenya with my other brother, Ryan. This has been a most anticipated event for Becca and me, and we are enjoying every moment of our time together.

Thank you all for your prayers. Your support has a great impact on the Kingdom of God here in Malawi.

The Lord bless you, Ben Hayes
