We will be visiting the site of an Irrigation Project that we continue to provide support to through EI. The result of the completion of this project will be life-changing for the Word of Grace and surrounding community. The people in this region suffer regularly from droughts and flooding, causing ongoing food shortages, which often leads to starvation. Over the past year, a lot of work has been done by EI to set the path to getting water to the field, so that crops can be grown year round. Your financial support of this mission project will allow this challenging work to become a reality.
Our second initiative involves Prison Fellowship Malawi’s only Half Way House, where former inmates learn skills to assist them in reintegrating into their communities. On previous mission trip in 2012, we visited prisons in Malawi, where we saw first hand the faces of young men who had been imprisoned for minor infractions such as loitering or stealing bread to feed their families. The Half Way House offers hope to these men, as they not only get skill-training, but they are supported and encouraged to become productive members of their communities. The goal of the Half Way House is to be self-sustaining through income-generating projects, involving the newly-trained men and women. Your financial support will assist the operation of the PF Deli and bakery, as well as other new sustainable initiatives being tested.
HAHFA Mission Trip
We are looking forward to walking alongside our friends in Malawi once again, as we continue to strengthen our long-term relationships with them through Emmanuel International and the local churches.
We appreciate you considering supporting these long-range plans that will continue to develop well beyond our short term mission this year. Thank you!
