As promised, here’s an amazing story of hope and healing. I’ve really written it for myself. It’s super long and full of lots of mundane details. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, the beauty is often in the mundane details. If you do want to read it all, you are very welcome! And please... Continue Reading →
It's taken me quite a while to really let it sink in that bushfires in Massangulo are nothing like bushfires in Australia. The noise is impressive and every now and then the flames are spectacular but they move quite slowly - there just isn't enough fuel to really get them going. Even on a windy... Continue Reading →
One of the best things about having Sally here in Massangulo (there are many) is that she's pretty much always willing to join me on my somewhat crazy and often overly ambitious adventures. As we were driving home from Lichinga on Sunday evening, I asked her if she would like to join me for a... Continue Reading →

Thanks heaps for praying for our DIRE renewals.

Good Friday Funeral – Part 1
Last week, on Thursday, I was sitting at my desk in the schoolroom when I saw Baba Nikiss’ head just pop into my view in the window and then back out again. This is secret Yawo code language for, “Mama, I really need to talk to you.” Cam was away for the day taking some... Continue Reading →
