Dennis Singini‘s “American Adventure” 7-week tour has concluded and he has returned to Malawi to ramp up and rock and roll as Program Director of WorldHope Corps Malawi.
On behalf ofthe board of directors, I want to thank Josie Dittrich (Dennis’ USA Tour sponsor) and WorldHope Corps’ many friends, followers and supporters who met, hosted or prayed for Dennis during his 7-week, 12-city USA tour; and who helped him with friend-raising, fund-raising and educational opportunities. Together, we succeeded in equipping Dennis for a new level of responsibility and in raising his program budget for Malawi.
All totaled, we raised over $50,000 in gifts-in-kind, cash donations, and pledges during Dennis’s tour! This is a tremendous provision that lets us procure and distribute 700+ Mosquito Nets for “No More Malaria”, do free eye exams and issue 1000+ prescription Eye-glasses, sponsor an HIV/AIDS Shalom training event, and start a new village well monitoring and maintenance program. We also received two $10,000 pledges to drill two new Village Wells in the New Year. And, most importantly, we raised enough staff support to employ Dennis as Program Director for WorldHope Malawi this year.

One of the most delicious fruits of our labor, or rather, one of most gracious and generous gifts received during Dennis’ American Tour, was a cash offering of $1,895 toward the purchase of a motorcycle for the circuit-riding ministry of Pastor Dennis as he visit the 12 churches he planted and some of the 50 village wells he personally drilled or facilitated drilling for WorldHope Corps. This special gift was contributed by the members of a Sunday School class led by Professor Dean Nelson at San Diego First Church of the Nazarene.
We still need another $1,000 to purchase a newer motorbike for Dennis, as well as additional funds for village wells and training events, so please help out if you can.
