Report on Challenging Preaching Opportunity

Thank you to all prayed for this recent trip into the bush to the Kamazi church. I will post some photos when I get the chance, but for now wanted to thank you. It was a great and full day. I preached twice, in the morning and in the afternoon. There was a communion service later in the day. The church was full, many out of mere curiosity. The pastor told me that today was history because no white man had ever been there. I was the first! They were most welcoming and receptive to what was preached. The students who went with me were a great help and asset (obviously). The church (as the soon to be published photos will show) rests in the shadows of the mountains which divide Malawi from Mozambique. Many of the church members cross the borders through paths they've worn with little regard for international bouundaries (ha! ha!) Anyway, just a note of thanks for those who brought this matter up in prayer. Ndatakhoza (I am thanking you).

Sam, thank you for the report. What amazing opportunities and experiences you all are having. And speaking of amazing, to think that you are the first white man ever to visit!
