The Ex-Thief that Changed an Island

“I had gotten so good at stealing that I was soon one of the richest men men in the town.” “That’s incredible…” I leaned back in my chair and put my spoon onto my plate, letting it rest beside a generous portion of spicy eggs and flatbread, “You got that much money just from stealing?” Our team was sharing a late breakfast with a local pastor in the...

Back to Africa & Darkness in Malawi

“Hello Mzuzu! In just a minute we’re going to welcome the band you’ve all been waiting for…” “Umm…” I felt an tap on my shoulder and turned from the crowd to face our beleaguered event organizer, “Actually, the band isn’t here yet… “But…” I moved the microphone away from my mouth, “Weren’t they...
