Brennan remembered he had opened the kitchen window. It was well past sunset. We were afraid to check. Sure enough the kitchen windows were wide open. There was a literal swarm of these tiny, bloodsucking, buzzing, tyrants. We shut the door between our kitchen and living room while we contemplated our plan of attack...
Lewis arrived home, and immediately Lewis arrived home. He braved the kitchen; we heard smacks against walls and counters and against other hands. I think he killed 30 mosquitoes.
It was a reminder that we must always remain vigilant; we can't ever be complacent when it comes to mosquitoes. The same could be said for our spiritual life; we can't ever become complacent, the consequences could be dire.
We have mail! You see, people had told us that they had sent us letters, but every day our box was empty. We tried talking with the folks at the post office. They relinquished two pieces, neither were ones we were expecting. They informed me we need to return with a receipt for the box.

There's not much to report this week. We were mostly home working and recuperating from our several weeks of travel.
We're learning to care for our new pets, Peggy and Lil Nuggs (the doves/pigeons we were given in Zambia).
There were heavy rains in Lilongwe on Friday evening; the river was nearly doubled in size. It took out at least three footbridges (including the one behind our house); and several small structures along the bank. It was moving fast. We haven't heard of any casualties (besides the bridges), and hope it stays that way.
It was nice to be back in Lilongwe for services this week and see our brethren. The Kachali sisters again sang lovely special music and Lewis held a meeting with the men after services and discussed speaking and song leading and the possibility of having Spokesman's club. It seems like they had a good discussion ( it lasted nearly two hours).
