Returning from Furlough

Nov 23, 2018

I returned to Malawi in August after my three-month furlough in the United States. A furlough is always a wonderful experience. It allows time to spend with family (and, in this instance, to meet my newest nephew for the first time!) as well as time with friends.

Furloughs also provide the opportunity to travel and visit many of the individuals, families, and churches who partner with me and the ministries at Namikango. During this past furlough, I travelled from Pennsylvania to Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Utah, and Texas. In each place I was struck by the generosity of Namikango’s partners and by their excitement in taking part in the Kingdom work here in Malawi.

One of the many blessings of furlough is to be reminded of just how many people are praying for the ministries at Namikango. I have been back for a while now and am back into the rhythm of life on the ground here. I am excited to continue working with this great Mission.
