"Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary use words"
~ it is always necessary... but make sure you live what you preach now!

          Though most of my time in Malawi was spent at COBT, I did make friends with some of the youth leaders at ABC (African Bible College).  I helped out with a youth group there for 5 months or so.  One Saturday morning some of the leaders and I were heading out to a nearby village to play some games with kids and lead a quick Bible lesson.  After we got back…we were famished!  Running around an open field in 37 degree plus heat without cover or sunscreen really takes it outa you.

          Once home at the ‘bro-tell’ (boys' house) what to have for lunch was the first thing to sort out, then what YouTube videos to share.  Being a ‘bro-tell’, food was scarce.  A can of beans, tomatoes, an onion and four eggs were at our disposal.  After some dicing, frying, spicing and frying again, we had an omelette, well almost.  You see now it was time for the crucial ‘flip’.  Grasping the panhandle with great respect for the critical coordination needed to safely transfer our well earned lunch to the plate, I flipped it! BANG!  CRASH!  SLAM!  The omelette made its entrance with intense speed onto the plate, while the pan flew into the sink.  Handle still in my hand, the pan had busted mid flip. Our lunch was fine, but at a cost…of that poor pan, dead before its time.
