We praise God for all the teams He brought together to visit this year, as they encouraged both the Hands local office and communities they served in. A team of nurses from the US, along with two Malawian nurses, held a mobile clinic in Mcheneka, providing medical attention to the community who otherwise would have to travel over 25 kilometres to seek medical care.
Praise God for sending us more African leaders. The Hands local office in Dedza welcomed two new members, Tanazio and Prince, in 2015.
We stand in amazement and praise God for the outcome of the Maranatha Workshops held for caregivers and youth in the community of Mngwere, as many found healing and came to Christ. The local church has been encouraged and strengthened through this, and now the youth gather every first and third Friday to pray together, and the caregivers meet weekly to share, encourage, and support one another.
Stand with us in prayer as we seek God’s guidance and direction as the Hands local office and Zambia Regional Support Team (RST) are working hard to expand into new communities in Malawi.
Pray for God’s grace and favor for our children who will soon be graduating from primary school and going on to high school. As children must often walk far, and face various daily challenges, pray God will open doors for our children to be educated beyond primary school.
Many of our communities are difficult to travel to as roads are filled with potholes and are nearly non-existent in some places. Pray for the government to send people to fix the roads and make connecting to our communities easier.
