We had a nice morning with Bible Clubs, usually there are 3 but the road to one location was hard to get to so we had the children walk to our meet with another group. We began with a few songs with clapping and singing. Janine gave a lesson about Giddon, Leigh used the Evangel cube to present the gospel and Karey gave another short lesson. The leaders had the children get into a line and we gave each one a lolipop. Karey began with giving our one at a time from her bag and then it was my turn. I went down on one knee so I could be more on thier eye level especially the little ones. The children would bow down even lower that I was in showing grattitude to what I was giving them, 204 lolipops wer given. We then headed onto our 2nd club and on the way we stoped to get more candy, but the place only had 80 pieces and we had 90 so if more than 170 came we were in trouble and we had about 200 kids so unfortunately we didn’t have enough so no one got candy. Janine and Leigh did the same thing as before and Pastor Ed gave a brief gospel presentation and many of the children said they wanted to recieve CHRIST.
We had the honor of going to a traditional Malawi restaurant that we were the first group that Ovi has taken. I ordered the chicken and rice. What I wasn’t informed is that if you don’t ask for certian parts of the chicken, then the cook gets to choose. I got a chicken breast and LIVER, yes liver, I don’t like liver, but I ate to good bites and it wasn’t too bad.
Our group went shopping, to pick up some authentic souveniers from some venders. They had a lot of paintings and carvings. There must of been about 10 of them. Whe we all picked up what we wanted and took it to the van. Janine had a list of each vender and how much they had sold, so Ovi had them come over one at a time and paid them. There were 2 that we didn’t buy from so I went to one and Ed want to the other and I bought $11 worth of animal carvings. Later that evening Ovi said he recieved a call from one of the guys and said everyone was very pleased that we supported them by buying their goods, so they could feed their families.
