Pa nthawiyo, m’tauni yonseyi munalibe wa Mboni ngakhale mmodzi. Koma panali vuto linanso. Munthu amene anandiuza kuti ndizikachita naye upainiya tinkasiyana zinthu zambiri.

Koma kutsatira malangizo a m’Baibulo kunatithandiza kuti tizikhala limodzi bwinobwino.

Pali mavuto enanso akuluakulu amene tinakumana nawo. Tinkazunzidwa koma “osati mochita kusowa kolowera.” (2 Akor. 4:7-9) Tsiku lina tikulalikira m’mudzi wina, anthu anamasula agalu awo kuti atilume. Agaluwo anayamba kubwera mwaukali ndipo tinalibe kothawira. Tinangogwirana manja ndipo ine ndinayamba kupemphera kuti, “Chonde Yehova, tithandizeni kuti agaluwa akayamba kutiluma tisachedwe kufa.” Koma agaluwo atangofika anayamba kugwedeza michira kenako n’kubwerera. Apa tinaona kuti Yehova watiteteza kwambiri. Kenako tinayamba kulalikira mudzi wonse ndipo anthu ambiri ankamvetsera mwachidwi. N’kutheka kuti anadabwa poona kuti agaluwo sanativulaze komanso anaona kuti zimene zinachitikazo sizinatichititse kubwerera m’mbuyo. Ena mwa anthu amene tinawalalikirawo anadzakhala a Mboni.

Tsiku lina panachitikanso zinthu zina zoopsa kwambiri. Bambo akunyumba kumene tinkachita lendi anamwa mowa ndipo analusa kwambiri n’kunena  kuti atipha chifukwa choti tinkasokoneza kwambiri m’deralo.

Mwamsanga tinaika mipando pachitseko chakutsogolo n’kuyamba kupakira katundu wathu. Titatsegula chitseko, tinapeza kuti bambowo ali pafupi atanyamula chimpeni. Tinabwerera n’kutulukira khomo lakuseri, ndipo tinadutsa kanjira kam’munda n’kuthawa titanyamula katundu wathu.

Tinapita kuhotelo inayake kukafufuza malo ndipo tinawapeza. Tinakhala kumeneko pafupifupi kwa chaka chathunthu ndipo malowa anali abwino kwambiri. Ndikutero chifukwa chakuti hoteloyi inali pakatikati pa tauni ndipo anthu ena amene tinkaphunzira nawo ankabwera kuti azidzaphunzirira komweko. Pasanapite nthawi tinkachitira komweko zinthu monga phunziro la buku komanso Phunziro la Nsanja ya Olonda ndipo tinkasonkhana anthu pafupifupi 15.

Nthawi imene tinakhala ku Mistelbach inali yoposa chaka chimodzi. Kenako ndinapemphedwa kuti ndipite ku Feldbach, komwe ndi kum’mwera chakum’mawa kwa Graz. Kumeneku ndinkachita upainiya ndi mlongo wina koma kunalibenso mpingo. Tinkakhala m’kachipinda kakang’ono kam’mwamba. Kukachita mphepo, mipata yomwe inali pakati pa matabwa inkachita phokoso kwambiri ndiye tinkatseka mipatayo ndi manyuzipepala. Tinkatunga madzi pachitsime.

Kenako anthu 30 a m’banja lina limene tinkaphunzira nalo anakhala a Mboni za Yehova.
