Christmas Greetings from Malawi

Tuesday, December 23, 2014
Dear Friend,

We want to wish you and yours all the best during this Christmas Season.

Whether you are missing family or enjoying family, healthy or ill, the coming of Jesus gives us the best reason in the world to celebrate. We hope you can celebrate with deep gratitude for all that our wonderful Savior has done for us.

Our year has been wonderful in many ways, from the welcoming of baby Elianna (who is growing up so fast!) to our return to Malawi. In spite of many challenges, we have much to be thankful for, and God has truly blessed us.

Praise Notes this month:
-We've received a wonderful Christmas present. Some missionary friends have loaned us their vehicle while they are visiting home until late January, and it has been so helpful to have a vehicle again!

-Our work permit for Malawi has been approved.

-We're making progress in language learning (slow, but steady).

-Rainy Season has finally begun (we had to wait a bit) so people are able to plant their fields in order to have the food they need.


Prayer Requests:
We are still looking for the right multi-purpose vehicle.
That God will help and bless our efforts to learn Chichewa.
Safety and good health.
Spiritual health.
A good witness.
Effective ministry.

Thank you so much to each of you who've contributed to our ministry, whether through prayer, or giving, or encouragement. You are so important to what we do, and we truly appreciate each of you.

May God draw you close and bless you with the knowledge of His love and His presence this Christmas and always.

With love,

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Greetings from Malawi!

Thursday, July 31, 2014
Dear Friend,
We hope you are well, and having a fantastic Summer.  We are praising God that we arrived safely in Malawi yesterday.  Today was spent cleaning and beginning to set up house, getting cash, and a few errands in town.  It feels good to be back.
Praise Notes:
-Time at Family Camps in Ontario was both fruitful and very enjoyable.
-We had a wonderful two weeks of vacation with Steffi's family.
-We arrived safely in Malawi.
-We have a truck to use for the next 3 1/2 weeks, loaned to us by friends who are gone on holidays.
-We've received a very warm welcome and much help from our colleagues, who are graciously hosting us in their home until we get ours reasonably ready to move in.

Prayer Requests:
-Please pray that we will find the right truck for us, at a good price, and that adequate funds will come in. (Thanks to all of you who have helped with that cost already).
-Pray also that all our luggage will arrive soon.  Five suitcases didn't arrive with us, which is not uncommon, but prayer would still be appreciated.
-We need to identify good language helpers to assist us in learning Chichewa.
-For a good start on this next phase of life and ministry in Malawi.
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support.  We want to remind all our Canadian supporters that all gifts should now be sent to ACCI, and say thanks once again for all the help that our friends at New Hope Free Methodist Church have given us over the past five years.  If you need the information on how and where to send support it can be found by clicking on the "Donations" tab above.

May God bless you wonderfully,
Dean and Steffi
