Greetings from Malawi!

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
