Visiting with Friends

 While we were in Malawi we were able to visit with two couples.  

 Billy and Susan Sanson live in Zomba and work with university students at Chancelor College.  They are doing a wonderful job ministering to these students.  
We met this couple when we went through our training the second time to come overseas.  Hannah was just a baby so it was 13 years ago that we met them.   

 This is where they have chapel in the mornings.

 We went to a restaurant on top of a huge mountain.  It was a rainy day so I wasn't able to take a picture of the view but I'm sure it would be amazing on a clear day.

 This is their view from their front porch.  

 This is one of their dogs.  I just had to take a picture because it looks like she has a heart imprinted on her.

 Later, we went to visit Claudia and John Brown in Blantyre.  I didn't get one of them as a couple, sorry.  Claudia was so gracious and french braided Hannah's hair and also tried out some other styles with her.  

 We went to visit this amazing old church.  It is over 100 years old.

 One afternoon we went to this lodge along the river and had lunch.

John and Claudia have been missionaries for many years.  We loved hearing many of their stories.  John is a church planter and Claudia does a lot of counseling and ministers to women through discipleship.  They host many volunteer teams throughout the year doing prayer walking, evangelism, and church planting.
When we left Malawi I felt as if my cup was overflowing!  It was such a good time of fellowship and encouragement.  It was just what we needed!
Pray for these two couples as they serve the Lord in Malawi.
