The Post travels to Africa


Paul and Judy Stark, of Cedar Springs, and Dave and Jan Malmo, of Howard City, had an amazing opportunity to visit an African Masai tribe as part of a 2-1/2 week trip to Tanzania, Africa in May. 

“These people live today the same as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago,” explained Jan.

The friends spent nine days on safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater viewing dozens of indigenous animals and birds. “The wildebeest migration was awesome as thousands of these animals ran for miles and miles in lines,” said Jan. 

They also saw herds of zebra, cape buffalo, lions, elephants, baboons, rhinos, leopards and giraffes. And a curious cheetah jumped up on their safari vehicle to have a look around! “That was beyond exciting since the roof and all the windows were open!” she remarked.

The Starks and Malmos felt blessed to have such an awesome opportunity.

The Post goes to Haiti


N-Post-goes-to-Haiti

 

“On jou!” That’s Creole for hello, the language that is spoken in Haiti, where Jan Malmo, recently retired teacher at Tri County Schools, traveled recently on a mission trip, and took a Post with her. She was able to work with children and teachers in a school in Les Cayes for 3 days. Jan’s focus was to bring new ideas and teaching techniques to a small town in a third world country where they are open to everything because they have so little—little to no teacher training and little to no supplies.

Jan said they primarily teach by reciting. She felt blessed to be welcomed by so many eager Haitians in a country where any help is appreciated. She saw God at work in the loving spirits and fellowship of people she could not really talk to without an interpreter.

“It was an awesome trip and I hope to be able to go back annually with more teachers so more lives can be enriched (mine and theirs)!” she exclaimed.

Thanks for taking us with you, Jan!
