Day 3: Mozambique is Within Sight!
After 3 long days of traveling, we are within sight of Mozambique. At noon today we landed in Blantyre, Malawi where Nedson and his wife Sarah and Sebber greeted us joyfully. After visiting at Nedson's house and seeing some of his children and beautiful grandchildren, we piled our bags and ourselves into Nedson's and Sebber's vehicles and a rented van. We headed westward towards Mwanza, Malawi where we will spend the night. Tomorrow we will arise early yet again to cross the border at Zobue where we will first step on Mozambique soil.
We've been refreshed with a nice dinner arranged by Nedson (see photo) and are looking forward to a good night's rest after such a long trip.
Our 3 day travel reminds us of the long journey that the Israelites took on their way to the Promised Land. Our Lord was with them, led them, and protected them the whole way, just as He is doing for us. As we spend this time together getting to know each other, it is wonderful to hear the stories of how the Lord has led each of us to come to this place. And we look forward with great excitement to see where He will lead us tomorrow. May our eyes see what He sees, may our hearts feel what He feels, and may we be moved to do what He would have us do.
"For I am The Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."
