We were only one day in Mangochi, we stayed with Pieter Loots — a strong and faithful missionary to the Yao people of Malawi. We did some field visits in the pouring rain, walking over treacherously slippery mud. The field visit was accompanied by the music of much laughter from the Christian Yao people with us. With Pieter’s skilful driving we avoided becoming stuck in the mud, but it was a close thing especially when passing vehicles on those narrow roads and unforgiving mud on either side! There were wonderful testimonies of God’s faithfulness in blessing the faithful in their fields.
We also gained a new respect for rice farmers! Rice farming is back breaking work.
