Your children have continued to delight us with their positive hard working attitudes. Their handy person skills have gone from strength to strength and you'll be pleased to know that the poo chart remains robust.
This morning began with an unexpected lie in before we set off on a walk through the countryside. The Malawians we met were friendly but bemused by the fact that we were walking with no fixed destination. Upon returning to the homestead painting the classrooms resumed with decorating the walls with educational murals. We discovered that painting straight lines are a challenge. Our lengthy lunch break was taken up with the entire houses water supply to wash hair and clothes. We donned our new Chitenges ready for church.
We crowded bare foot into a lovely dirt floor Zionist church, and were welcomed by friendly elders of the village. A rave followed, with energetic dancing from the newborns being jiggled on backs to the mamas rocking out with whistles and shakers.
Our version of amazing grace received several claps, unlike our previous efforts. There was a powerful sermon in Chichewa, which we could not decipher, but we could feel the passion and sense of community not least in the way in which we were bode farewell individually by the entire congregation.
Dinner was lovely. Most of your children are addicted to Bananagrams including impressive words such as Apache, night, terror.
Hysteria is setting in amongst the staff.
