All that said, the Sabbath was wonderful! No matter what your doubts or fears might be, being with God’s people has a way of making things all better. I was very nervous to meet the congregation. We’re outsiders, we don’t know them, we don’t know their culture; and they don’t know us. I needn’t have worried. Everyone was friendly and kind. To help myself learn names, and to later become a directory I went around and met most everyone who was at services (a couple slipped out the back before I got to them) and took their picture, got the spelling of their names, and got their phone numbers. I’m going to take a map to services next week and try and get an idea of where everyone lives so we can hopefully start going out on visits soon.
On Monday, Lewis took his Malawian driving lesson. I’m nervous about getting around the city, but I have every confidence in Lewis.
On Tuesday Lewis drove the Deans to the airport
Lewis drove all week, and he did a fabulous job! We’re beginning to learn our way around town. We can get to the LifeNets Shop/Church building, the bank center/household goods center, and the mall where our favorite grocery store is located… and back home again. It’s exciting to get to know our town.
We’re looking forward to the Sabbath and getting to know everyone a little better. I believe we are going to start going on visits next week.
