: Thank you Toby for sharing about the upcoming Malawi Trip that Christ Church is leading this May, along with the fundraisers that will be coming up. Toby shared about how for various reasons, orphans are invisible in the villages of Malawi, but when Western foreigners come to visit them, and the care-workers and widows who care for them, it causes people to pay attention to them, giving them weight and importance. We go to Malawi to sing and pray with the care-workers, coming alongside the twelve other Malawian churches that support the community based organizations that work in these villages to serve the most vulnerable.
We do not want only want it to be the Malawi team that goes in May, but our whole church, in Spirit, going with the team, so that the church can be of one mind and one Spirit, in our visit, with our brothers and sisters in Christ in Malawi.
While we ask that the prayers of Christ Church to cover the Malawi team and the community of Mcheneka, if God is moving you to support financially, we have a GoFundMe
page, and will also be having a t-shirt fundraiser, with funds going to support the trip and the work that is done there. The t-shirt is an excellent way, when wearing it, to be reminded to pray for the orphans and caregivers that we support there.
Toby led us in prayer thanking God for the partnership with Hands at Work, and asking for God to show us how to love, and to give us the eyes to care for the most vulnerable. We want to go as God's ambassadors, and learn from our brothers and sisters in Malawi. We asked God to unite us as a church in this mission trip, and for him to bless our time there. Let's continue to pray for the Malawi trip this May, and our brothers and sisters, the orphan and the widow, in Mcheneka!
