Shalom, Ullamaija and Norway

Jehova Shalom, Jesus is my peace. I thank the Lord for the peace that came unto my heart as I worshipped him last night with singing and guitar. I praise Him for there are more than enough signs that He has answered my prayer and He has taken the load off me. On Thursday and Friday our class had peer review seminars with our Finland professors, Ullamaija Kivikuru and her husband Kaarle Nordestreng..I was happy that Ullamaija said my essay was of high quality, although when writing I thought it was junk. In an hour's time our class will be heading to Oslo University College by bus. The trip to Norway will take five hours. Blessed be the Lord.

I trust you Lord Jehova

'In the morning, O LORD , you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation' Psalm 5:3 declares.
My Father, Abba, Yahweh, I thank you for your goodness and mercy. Great is thy faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies I see. I praise and worship you because you are good. Every good and perfect gift comes from you. Father God in heaven you know the situation I'm going through, I praise you for it and I thank you because you care and you know about it. Receive this sacrifice of praise, foolish praise because you are going to make a way for me. I sit back and expectantly await an answer today..a clear reply for my situation. You are a God of order and you will bring wisdom, peace and understanding and healing. I thank you for you are the Great I AM, the healer, You are my All in All. Receive all the glory, honour, power and dominion. AMEN

Örebro Again

God is faithful. I returned to Örebro University yesterday tired after two days of travelling, but thankful of the Lord's mercies and grace. It was hard to say goodbye to my family at Chileka Airport in Blantyre. But I waved cheerfully as I went to board the ATR42. In Harare I was stuck at the airport not knowing my way to the hotel I was booked into. God put a Zimbabwean woman of Malawian origin in my way and she helped me talk on the phone to an uncle who rescued me. My uncle took me to the hotel and later picked me up and I spent the afternoon and early evening at his posh home in the Zimbabwean capital. In the morning he came at 5.30 to take me back to the airport where I started off for Heathrow in London in a British Airways Boeing 777. The ten hours passed quickly as I enjoyed the perks of the Clubworld cabin with screened off seats, footrests etc. In London I was thrilled to see the famous concorde aircraft! The flight from London to Stockholm in a BA Boeing 757-200 was delayed abit and I was so drowsy with fatigue but I felt good to disembark at Arlanda. I spent the night at a hostel in Stockholm and in the morning took the train to Örebro. The town looked different--new shops, repairs to pavements and Christmas decorations still up. The weather was chilly and rainy..I missed the sun and people of Malawi. I bought foodstuffs and went to campus. My mates in the hostel and class thought I had suntan, had gained weight, was looking better and such stuff. I slept but later woke up to write emails and phone home. I went to bed early to rest.

It is still hot and humid here in Malawi and I can't imagine the freezing weather I will meet on Sunday when I return to Sweden. I leave tomorrow in the morning flying to Harare in Zimbabwe. I will stay in Harare for a day and then fly out on Sunday for London and then to Stockholm. I will arrive at Arlanda Airport after 11pm. I will go to Stockholm and spend a night at a hostel called Backpackers so that I go to Orebro University on Monday morning. Pray for my journey mercies. God is faithful.
