A few days later, when Fatima and I met for our weekly literacy lesson, Fatima said excitedly, "Yesterday I opened up my Bible and I read John 1:1-4...and I understood it!"
What a blessing to hear :)
I pray that Elina would also hear such blessings, and more...in Zambezia!

In Nyadumbuque, after sharing with the church, the young man who is leading this group, invited us to his mother's house for lunch. His grandmother also lives with the family (picture above). She kept everybody laughing with her tough old attitude...the phrase "one who chews nails and spits rust" comes to mind...she seemed like a Mozambican version of my own grandmother :)
The whole family
(the young man sitting in the front, Jermelindo, is the leader of the church in Nyadumbuque)
Everyone loves grandma :)
After teaching and praying with the group in Madendere, one of the young ladies thanked me and handed me a freshly harvested pineapple.

Penguins playing on the beaches
Birds resting in a giant aloe tree
And the most noble seal I've ever seen
This man had spent the last 26 years attempting to "domesticate" the seal
Here he is showing off his lovely teeth
Here's me trying to take a picture with him...and getting the great "seal snub"
