From Leyana: A post about Africa

Life here in Malawi is getting easier everyday. Some days we go the whole day without power and some days it is just the evening without power for three hours. But no matter what, if it is at night time we are singing hymns.
For some of you, who have never been out of the states, this would be hard with you. For us it is something we were prepared for because when we went to Senegal we went without power. I think God was thinking, "I am going to prepare them for what they are going to go through in Malawi." Because he certainly prepared us to go without power for 3-5 hours. I am grateful to God that we actually have power most of the time. And when we have power, my Mom cooks everything we will possibly need for the next few meals.
Here in Malawi we have to boil water to wash dishes. Then you wash twice and rinse. The water here isn't like it is in the states so it is not unlimited and it is also not purified. We get our water and we don't have to do anything to it in the States, but here that is different. You can not drink tap water here. 
School here is different, too. We do a lot of different subjects that we don't do in the United States.
Well, I just want to say I hope you all are well!
