Last May I was honest in telling you that I nearly quit. I was so upset with everything that happened. Going into our September trip, my heart was on a roller coaster of emotion. I was hopeful, but not convinced, I'm SO glad we didn't give up! I'm so thankful we held the course and remained faithful to the calling God has put on our hearts.
Through out the trip, this verse rang in my heart: "As God's grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving and God will receive more and more glory. That is why we never give up!" 2 Corinthians 4:15-16
A Joyous Welcome
When we arrived at the Grace Center, we were greeted by the children, staff, members of the church and community.
A Father’s Heart
Our Mighty Men team of 4 plus 6 Malawian Strong Men led by Kelvin Wetmore were absolutely incredible. They arrived in Malawi with the goal of completing two solar projects and the hope of getting two more projects completed. Within the first 4 days on the ground, they had completed their first 4 projects and began searching for money to do another 4! In all they completed 8 solar projects plus a number of repair jobs around the campus.
Leaders for the Transition
I am incredibly proud of our transitional leadership team. They are doing a really phenomenal job of learning and putting into place the organizational structures that we are establishing. It isn't easy to step into such a void but they have willing, capable hearts and minds. John Ingram and I spent hours each evening in discussion with them over the ministry and how to structure the organization so it can flourish.
That’s enough on the guys! What were the gals on our team up to?
Sponsorship and Christmas Gifts!
Karly Glibert and Emilie Wetmore were able to work on some shopping and pricing for our clinic supplies. We can't wait to share the shopping list with you. We are thinking a fun way to purchase the supplies will be for you to pick an item and then raise the funds together for that item with your small group, Sunday School class or family. More on that soon!
