Current Update

It was roughly fifteen years ago when we first broke ground at our orphan care center in Malawi. It’s located in a small village about an hour outside of Blantyre and at the time there was no electricity anywhere near the facility. We had to design the pump for the well, as well as everything else, to be operated by a generator. The generator has had it’s place but we are grateful that electricity is now coming to our area of the world!

We have a saying we often use which is, “This is Africa!” Things are just different in Africa. The construction of the buildings is different, the wildlife is different and the pests (termites) are different. Which brings me to the whole point of this update, we need to do some serious renovations! Fifteen years in the African sun, winds, rain and everything else has taken its toll and now it’s time to do some repairs and renovations.

This year has brought two tropical storms back to back which have removed some of the roof in places and has eroded the brick security wall in areas. The water tank which is imperative to our operations needs to be replaced as well. We will also be adding a new administrative building where our director will both work and live on site for added security. We currently have a large area for our gardens but we would like to add a separate playground area for playground equipment as well as a place to play soccer and other games.

I believe God led us to the location of this property because the land that we purchased is adjacent to the local elementary school which not only makes it convenient for our children to come and go but also allows other children to visit, play and come to meetings as we have them.

We’ll be focusing our attention on this need until we’ve been able to secure the finances needed as well as make all needed renovations and additions.

Thousands of Meals Donated to our Orphan Care Center

An organization in the States has recently offered to donate approximately 270 thousand meals to our Orphan and Widow Care projects. This is a lot of food! It will take a forty foot shipping container to ship this amount of food to our ministry in Malawi.

Feed My Starving Children is a ministry that is dedicated to making highly nutritious vitamin and protein rich meals designed to be easily made by just adding boiling water. We have received and used this food in the past and it is an amazing provision. We have had doctors sent by the government of Malawi to assess the children in our care center and in the area surrounding our facility. They overwhelmingly reported that the children in our care center were much healthier and in much better overall health than that of the children in the surrounding district.

This food is a God send and we want to take full advantage of the opportunity. Our part is to pay the shipping from the United States to Malawi which is $12,000.00 dollars.

Time is of the essence. The food is needed now and it will take several months to arrive in Malawi once we have raised the money and have agreed to pay the shipping costs.

This is an awesome opportunity. Please consider assisting with this endeavor that we may utilize this generous offer that has been made.
