It is time once again to rest and recover from another extended time in, and another lengthy flight from, my beloved Malawi.
Now I am blessed to be able to spend a little season in my home apartment in Flint, Michigan. I am thrilled once again to be able to use my dishes collected from various locations over the years. They are inexpensive, but beautiful to me.
Few can really understand the peaceful, quiet joy experienced by turning on a faucet that willingly expels hot water, and to get a nice pretty CLEAN plate from the cupboard, when at breakfast just a few days ago there was an awareness that EVERYTHING in my cupboard had, without a doubt, been paraded with cockroaches during the night.
The trip was long. The time from Chileka, Malawi, to my arrival in Flint, Michigan being a total of 28 1/2 hours, but there were many beautiful scenes along the way. I do love flying!
Two hours later we landed at Johannesburg, in a rainstorm. Esther would have loved it! (You will hear more about her as you continue on with me through these blogs.) After a few hours we again boarded, this time for an all-night, 15 hour flight.
Morning….Atlanta……then on to Flint!
As always, I prayed during each segment of the flights for opportunities to speak to someone about the Love of My Soul, Jesus Christ. Isn’t that what ambassadors do? As I boarded the last flight, I was very much aware that my prayer had not yet been answered.
But……I arrived home with my heart almost bursting with joy, because on the last section of the long flight home God met my request. The flight was 2 hours in length and for 1 1/2 hours Ann, from Cass City, and I spoke of and rejoiced in Him! How wonderful it is to have those special times with fellow Ambassadors of Jesus Christ.
So now, I am resting in Him, enjoying hot showers, my beautiful dishes and just being home again. Ladies, it is a simple joy to just wash my dishes, in my beautiful Malawian dishpan, in HOT WATER, from my generous faucet.
A SIMPLE JOY.
Nancy, a Joyful Ambassador of Jesus Christ.
