Frank Mantchichi was President Erickson's AP when we arrived in the mission. Now he is home in Blantyre and Sunday we were blessed to witness the baptism of his sister. She chose Elder Draycott to baptize her. It was a wonderful day. Our Blantye elders have big personalities! and we love them.
We loved our drive to Malawi in December so much we decided to drive it again in January. In eastern Zambia the road crosses the Luangwa river. The elevation here drops to 400 meters above sea level (1300 ft) and it is hot! This little town sits at the edge of the river valley. We bought 4 baskets, 2 sweepers, a sun hat, 2 wooden spoons, 3 chitenges and 2 bottle fish for lunch and spent about 13 USD. The woman with the skewer wrapped the fish in newspaper for us and then gave me a Tbs of salt in the palm of my hand.
