Overview – this was Acts III’s first journey to Malawi. Randy McEwen was invited there by Wood World Missions to work along side them and to assist Mercy Wood so she would not be in the country alone. Before leaving, Acts III’s board authorized $1,000 to be taken to assist Mercy & WWM to purchase some land. This blog comes directly from Randy McEwen’s journal. What we hope the reader will see here is a lot of spiritual immaturity, missing the direction of God, how flesh got in the way, as well as see how the Lord worked during and after this trip as a consequence of certain decisions. Some of these will be more evident as the story develops over the rest of the trip blogs.
