I’m happy to report that
our Thanksgiving Appeal for projects in Malawi and Uganda was moderately
successful, and we are almost there:
We needed a sponsor to
complete construction of our Water Store in Uganda…We found one and we were
able to wire $4,150 in donations to Sustainable Action—our ministry partner in Western
We needed a sponsor to
jump start this year’s Anti-malaria mosquito net distribution during the wet
season in rural northern Malawi…. United
Methodists in South Carolina took up an offering and we were able to wire the
first $3,000 to WorldHope Corps Malawi to buy high quality bed nets.
need another $6,000 this month to fully fund the distribution and training
program. You can donate directly to www.WorldHopecorps.org Please help us with a year-end gift of any amount.
