We were also privileged to welcome the Bishop of Johansburge who was our preacher. He and other team members have been a blessing to us during this SOMA mission.

A boat ride to Likoma Via Chizumulu. This was also the first time to get the boat this far. We had no idea on what to face. The boat can fly. We reached the first Island very safely without waves but only the bumps created by the boats itself. However the challenge was to get to Likoma. Thanks be to God the boat is very stable on the lake even facing the southerly wind. ... ExpandHide

Suzanne GillTell us more, Bishop!4 months ago ago
Anglican Diocese of Northern MalawiThank you very much all. Indeed I assumed that you all know about the new boat from the last posts. Indeed this is a new boat that we got curtsey of the African Steps. We left Nkhata Bay at past 3:00 pm and by 5 we were on Chizumulu Island. This was so because we reduced it's flying speed that created bumps due to small direct waves. If we had left it flying I think we would have been on Chizumulu Island just by an hour. Chizumulu to Likoma it took us about an hour again because of the southerly (Mwara) wind which was very strong. I tell you we had no idea on how the boat can stand the test of the waves of Mwera wind. It's is very stable. But it consumes fuel when on slow speed than on its normal flying speed.4 months ago ago  ·  4
