After a good night’s sleep and hearty breakfast with Steph and Nadine we were committed to the Lord in prayer for our journey. With Rene at the wheel, we headed out into the Johannesburg traffic on Wednesday morning. Our timing was very good and we had a smooth journey all the way through to Pretoria and Polokwane. A short stop with Josie at his grocery store and we were off to Musina. The Beit Bridge border crossing went very well and we were on our way again in less than two hours. Boabab trees dotting the country side flew by as we pressed on to cover as much distance as possible before dark.
The sun went down quite early at around 6:00 pm and we were very grateful to the Lord to arrive at out overnight accommodation at about 8:00 pm. After a quick supper and a shower we soon fell into a deep sleep.
Thursday morning broke beautifully with a sunrise over Lake Kyle in Zimbabwe as we committed ourselves to the Lord for the remainder of the journey. What a beautiful country! We easily understood that it was once known as the bread basket of Africa. After many kilometres of steady travel we picked up Elias at Tete and crossed the Zambesi river, arriving at the Matura border post at about 6:30 pm. Once again the Lord was gracious and we had an uneventful border crossing to be welcomed to Malawi by brother John who had been in fellowship at the Rynfield Assembly and only recently returned to Malawi.
A hair raising two hour trip saw us arrive at the mission house in Blantyre at about 8:00 pm. Exhausted, we were very grateful for a hot shower and a warm bed – ready to meet with the brethren for the Bible School the next day!
