Mouse-kabobs and Fiuni
They are served in two ways. Charcoal barbequed, or boiled then dried in the sun.
Mice. That’s right. Mouse-kabobs. A rare treat offered along the Blantyre-Lilongwe road in Malawi. Tourists must be alert, however. Such treats are only available in certain locations. They make a humorous interlude along the narrow, asphalt road sometimes winding beside the Mozambique border among the lazy, rolling hills.
Fiuni was another matter. He is 3, and is beginning to walk. He can only say a few words. And he is HIV positive. Our orphanage in Malawi is giving him a chance at life, and he is responding well to love and personal care.
In fact, you can be proud of our missionary staff in Malawi. They provide care for disabled children, pastor churches, visit rural churches, run the Bible College and facilitate extension education, conduct radio programs, and offer philanthropic relief.
It was a great visit. Thanks for keeping me in your prayers.
