I just got off the phone with Rackson, not a bad connection at this time of day. Malawi is seven hours ahead of us (CTZ) so he was winding up his day at the Children's home. He called me just as he was entering the village where Bible Way Baptist Church is located. He is working with the local pastor visiting members of the church and inviting others to visit next Sunday. Bible Way is a very important part of the village life as it is a place where many may meet and have a safe and comfortable place to worship and learn more about Gods plan for the saved and what one needs to do in order to get saved. This is Racksons' strong suit and what he loves to do. Many have asked about Rackson so I am sending this update and including a few of the pictures he sent back. The first thing we got for him was a camera and boy did he ever use it. It was on his belt always. He got to use it while attending an American Marriage, funeral, church services (local and around the southern states), Naval Air Museum, Creation Museum, at the beach, on a boat fishing, Blue Angel Air Show, when he first saw ice, snow, the ocean, at an underground waterfall (Ruby Falls), Rock City, The Tennessee Aquarium, Malls (the size of a small Malawi city) and pictures of everyday life we enjoy here without giving it a thought. Most of what we did will be updated soon so please come back. He received many wonderful things from churches we visited and all got back to Malawi packed in suitcases without a loss of a single item, boy is God good to his children! That is not a question but a statement. He is doing the work of an Evangelist and he is doing it all the time. My only regret is that we could not raise more for his support. I lost count of the number of souls saved while he and I were working together in Malawi but it was in the thousands and I was slowing him down because of age and legs. He will continue to work as long as he has petrol money and can get to the villages, if no money, then he will walk as far as he can in a day and preach Gods word, that is just the kind of young man he is. He has been a blessing in my life and I know he has been one in the churches he visited while here in America. I am sending a few pictures he sent me. I hope you enjoy them and think on the work that is taking place in Malawi and want to take part in that work. Rackson has few needs outside the normal food, clothing and care of his family which consists of his wife Grace and their two children and his two brothers, who he is trying to make sure get an education along with food and shelter.
