Tsalani Bwino!

And Merry Christmas! As we pack our suitcases and reflect on our time here in Malawi, here are some fun memories we wanted to share.


In the FCCU with two staff members who were excellent translators for us.



Ruthie is a physiotherapy student here in Malawi. She spent a couple days seeing patients in the hospital with us. It was wonderful to get to know her and we are confident the future of physiotherapy in Malawi is in good hands!



This picture was taken right before we said goodbye to Ruthie. It was surprisingly emotional saying bye to our new friend and colleague.



We had the pleasure of celebrating Alycia’s birthday here in Malawi! The man pictured here is John, a wonderful chef who was determined to bake a birthday cake for Alycia. This cake took days of planning on his part to find a solid hour of electricity to power the oven.



A close up of John’s masterpiece. Knowing how much work went into this cake and how proud he was of the finished product made the cake taste all the more delicious!



Our last time walking out of St. Gabriel’s Hospital. We are so thankful for the opportunity to come here and for all the experience we’ve had. Our lives are forever changed by the people we have met, people who truly warm your heart. It is no doubt that Malawi is known as the “Warm Heart of Africa”.

We hope you all are enjoying time with your loved ones on this Christmas day. We look forward to seeing you soon!

With warm hearts,

Samantha, Alycia, and Melody (S.A.M)
