Malawi Trip Video

Newsong Church Unleash Campaign – Malawi Update [Newsong Irvine | 09.27.2010] from Newsong Church on Vimeo.

WOW! Even though my trip to Malawi was not that long ago, watching this video brought tears to my eyes. It has been (and probable will continue to be) a LONG journey of processing my experience in Africa. Many times I have felt so numb since I’ve been back. I’m not sure if it’s God’s grace over my heart and spirit because what we saw and experienced was intense and at times overwhelming…

I still have a hard time finding the words to express what I did, what I saw, and what I learned. I’m positive there is more that God wants for me to learn and internalized…just unsure of what it is right now.

What God has showed me so far…

The Malawi people are a BEATIFUL people! So welcoming and giving, even though they have so little physical positions in our understanding. I loved how my friend Angela put it::

“Malawi’s wealth is in it’s people!!”

Angela was so beautifully able to put to words what I feel in the whole last part of this video.

Though my 2 weeks in Malawi are over, this journey only began the moment my feet touched Malawian soil and will continue long after I have landed back in the States.

Please continue to prayer for the people of Malawi…God has always been there and will continue to move in mighty ways. His LOVE for them is contagious…surely I have caught that bug. I feel BLESSED that God has allowed me to be apart of what His is doing around the world in such a personally way.

There is only ONE word that could give you a true understanding of Malawi, it’s people and it’s past and future…

GO!!!!

Here is my prayer before, during and long after my trip. I pray it will be yours too! I Will Go

Nkhoma Hospital

We didn’t get alot of pictures of the hospital…we already stood out BIG TIME. It was impossible to be discrete about snapping photos. But I wanted at lest something to bring back that showed where Robyn, Alex and I worked over the 2 weeks. So here’s the little video tour of the Pediatric Ward that we work on most days. The facility, the patients, families, and our new nursing FRIENDS!

Leavin’ on a jet plane…

I can’t believe we are here…it feels a little surreal. So please keep our team in your prayers. We are now starting our 20+ hrs of flying.

Also, if you were thinking and wanting to support me and our team we are still short about $7,000 as a team for this trip, and we would love to have you join us in this journey!!!!! Check out the Malawi tab – support me! To find out how to give

This summer I have the AMAZING opportunity to do a Medical Mission to Nkhoma, Malawi. And you heard me right…it is about 25 hour and multiple plane trip to this village in Malawi, Africa.

Yet, I can’t be more excited about this trip  with Y-Malawi and my church Newsong – I get to actually met, physically touch and help the kids that many of my friends sponsor through World Vision. I get to see where the water well we are trying to build through Kuvina::an art auction will be built. And I get to use my nursing skills to help people on the other side of the globe, which has been my passion and inspiration for going into nursing.  I talk a little more about how, what and why in my support letter.
