This is the heart of Patrick and Dalitso Chipanda who have served with us for 5 years here at the Blantyre base. They are the best of us and we will send out their team of 4 in June. Their house is ½ finished with a miracle needed as normal for the funds to put in windows and doors etc. We will be training them and other staff in base leadership over the next months, it feels like a new challenge for me that I am excited to grow into.
