John returns from Malawi

John has returned, safe and sound, from Malawi. These are difficult days for Malawi as it struggles with shortages of fuel and foreign exchange. The Malawian Kwacha has been devalued by 10%

In mid – July peaceful demonstrations brought the country to a halt and, unfortunately, ended in violence, looting and a number of deaths. Currently the U.N. are mediating talks to try to resolve the issues.

The days ahead are going to be challenging. Please pray for the very many ordinary people who are affected by all this. Their lives are difficult already.

Thankfully the harvest has been good and there is plenty of maize about. For more information on the current situation, look at Google news for Malawi.
