In December 2019, some TWR colleagues and I had the opportunity of traveling to Malawi and distributing radios to a room full of excited students at the Ekwendeni School for the Visually Impaired.  It's operated under the Synod of Livingstonia of the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP), and the pastor in charge is Reverend Timothy.  He's a soft-spoken, humble man.  I truly enjoyed spending time with him.  During our conversation (which can be heard on today's Footsteps), Reverend Timothy refers to TWR and the Ekwendeni School as "making a fellowship together."  According to the Reverend, we weren't just working together on a project, but we were involved in fellowship.  His comment prompted me to meditate on that term "fellowship."  Up to that point, I had always viewed Christian fellowship as believers getting together for a meal.  Hey, isn't that what a "fellowship hall" is for?  Yes, but true fellowship is broader and deeper than food and fun.  In Malawi, at the Ekwendeni School, I experienced fellowship by serving the Lord in ministry alongside my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Without a doubt it was more meaningful that another potluck dinner!
