Tanazio and Butwell, members of the local Hands at Work team in Dedza, Malawi, are committed to caring for the most vulnerable. In 2018, a Primary Caregiver who lives in the community of Maonde, lost her son to malaria. When they were visiting her earlier this year, she shared, “It was very difficult to lose my son but out of that, I realised how much we are loved. When my son was sick, Tanazio and Butwell took him to the clinic and when he died, they were there. They couldn’t save my son, but I know that my son died in the hands of people who loved him and that gives me comfort.”
Livester, a local volunteer Care Worker from Maonde Community, Malawi, regularly spends time with Patrick* in his home who shares that his favourite part of her visits is that they sing and dance together. This is a beautiful picture of the vision for our work; the local church is bursting into these kids’ lives the way that Jesus did for us. Livester brings the love and hope of Christ to Patrick's home, fostering opportunities for them to praise and worship Him together.
‘You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.’ Psalm 30:11-12
