|Village in Malawi|
|Village behind tall grasses at the side of the road....always the beautiful clouds here!|
|A busy street in Lilongwe, mostly people walk everywhere.|
|Blurry shot of a loaded bike.|
|Typical way to carry the groceries.|
|"Here is an ox-cart...oh how slow, it's pulled by an ox of course you know!"|
|Scenic view from exclusive property by the river!|
|I liked this little guys truck or train, he pulled it along with a string....I paid his Dad to allow me to take the picture. Made from milk jugs and caps for wheels. He was handling it carefully.|

The people in Malawi mostly speak Chichewa. They are taught in school in Chichewa until they are older. English is taught like any other subject. The government uses English as the official language. But many places, like in the church in Lilongwe, there are few English speakers. There is a translation of the Bible into Chichewa but it is not very good, leaving out some verses, like the one about Jesus being baptized by immersion. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has not yet translated the Book of Mormon into Chichewa so it is amazing that people there do as well as they do. In Blantyre, where Elder Nelson recently dedicated the Land of Malawi for missionary work, there are more English speakers. It is a larger city, even though it is not the capitol, and there are more church members there.
We loved the country and the people of Malawi!
