Beverly and I traveled by AXA bus from Blantyre to the capital Lilongwe, Malawi on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. All these scenes and slices of Malawi life were taken from the bus.
From March 19, 2018 through April 17, Beverly and I will visit three African countries where we feel near and dear to the people. We have worked there in various ways through the United Church of God and in humanitarian terms through LifeNets.
We will visit South Africa, Malawi and Zambia. We have people, projects and buildings on the agenda. I will have an up to day TravelArk blog posted at
Great blog from our Malawi Project leaders Brennan and Michala Hilgen who are starting their second year of service in Malawi.
United Youth Camp and Ambassador Bible College Sampler, South Africa: 24 to 31 December 2017
Following on from the success of the UYC Camp held in 2016 the 2017 camp was planned.

This also raised the idea of an Ambassador Bible College Sampler being done in conjunction with the 2017 camp. Allowing the parents to be occupied during camp activities as well as any other adult members wishing to attend.

For the third year, the 2017 Colombian United Youth Summer Camp was held at the Hotel San Gil del Campo just outside of the city of San Gil, Santander, Colombia from June 22-27, 2017. This was our fifth consecutive year for camp in Colombia, with a total of 16 campers, 6 staff from Colombia, and 4 staff from the United States--two of which were the Colombian pastor and his wife. We experienced delightful cooperation, comradery, and unity among the campers and staff.
