Roger and Helen arrived safely at Lilongwe airport on Wednesday 18 Jan where they were collected by Julian and Caroline and taken to the Village of Light farm to settle in and meet the team. On Sunday 22nd Jan they were introduced to the church at Tsumba (see photos). Following a brief induction they started working with the teams on the ground, and have even spent a few days "steering the ship" while Julian and Caroline took a much-needed holiday.

 

We have received the following short update from them:

"We are feeling much more settled, starting to get a handle on things, speaking in churches & villages & (re-)learning Chichewa. Thanks for your continued support.”

 

Roger and Helen have now applied for their TEP, which is a permit which will allow them to stay for two years. They need this permit to be processed and granted quickly, before their 90 days tourist visa expires requiring them to leave the country.
