Here's a brief update, keeping you in step with where we've been and what we're up to!
We wrapped up our classes as the final semester has come to a close. Pictured left is our wonderful and rambunctious children's class.
We are currently sitting in the airport getting ready to fly out to Gemena, Congo!
Our time in Tanzania has sadly come to an end. Mloka became our home, the people became family and the many memories will now hold a special place in our hearts. We've loved and have been loved.There are many stories to tell and we look forward to filling you in on all the beauty that has taken place!
Many memories of exploring the riverside, birthday parties, surprises and celebrations, school graduations, new villages, new babies and deep friendships.
We don't feel ready to leave and we certainly have left a part of our heart in that little village. So, Thank YOU for making this possible, for allowing us in the first place to have this experience investing is these people, through teaching English and so much more.
One of our students messaged us before we left saying "You came as teachers and left as friends."
We will forever be thankful for your investment and belief in us as a couple. Being here has enhanced and changed our perspective, fuelled our passions and focused our outlook on life. Thank you for your kindness to us
Here are some snapshots to give you a little picture of our time :
1. Learning how to cook Tanzanian style for huge celebrations.
2. Our teacher, translator and sweet friend Moses (far right) whom we couldn't have done this adventure without.
3. An unforseen blessing, our dear friends Amani and Joelie (and others) commited their lives to Jesus on a Sunday through baptism and we were able to celebrate their new life together.
4. We were all excited about the huge fish bought for the English students' graduation ceremony!
Refusing to let us take the truck, our wonderful friends haulled our bags to the bus stop.
We will soon begin our jounrney to a town in Congo called Gemena to partner with Congo Voice and work closely with Mama Sabuli in her home as she cares for over 80 orphans.
We will be there serving from now until the first of May!
Please keep us in your prayers as we adjust again to a new language and culture and many new faces. Pray that God will fill our hearts again with love and that we would remain rooted in him. That we would be willing to keep serving and loving, with patience and kindness.
Thank you for travelling along with us in our adventures, as we step away from Mloka into a new phase.
We will be home June 15th excited to share all that God has done for us and through us.
Max and Lischa
