The roads were dry for our return drive to the Mozambique/Malawi border, but it still took long.
At the Mozambique side an unfriendly officer examined our vehicle intensely for a long time. When we finally were allowed to cross over the no man’s land into Malawi it was past closing time.
A fellow traveller calmly mentioned that “if you assist them , they will assist you”. So in the darkness with the light from our cell phones we filled in the various forms after paying the after hour fee.
It was wonderful to reach pastor Mark’s familiar guest house at Migowi.
For once we gave Jean a break and with candlelight we shared some tinned food for supper with them and the pastors who had travelled with us.
Thursday we enjoyed a day of rest and visited the youth centre for which we had brought two sewing machines, material and a knitting machine.
When I had been there a few months ago the centre had just been completed . Now it was encouraging to see some students learning IT skills while others learnt to sew or to weld.
Pastor Mark’s church River of Life with its many branches of help for the local community is like a lighthouse of hope in the destitute area.
Isaiah 9:2 “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light ; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”
Rom 10 : 14 “and how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? ”
