BIMBI IRRIGATION PROJECT UPDATE
Thanks to the generous support from Wellington Square, the Irrigation project that was started 4 years ago, is now bringing tremendous benefits to the Word of Grace Church community in Bimbi, Malawi.
Pastor Moses reports:
- Irrigation is “hidden treasure that changes lives of people”
- “phenomenal” results in the crops this year – maize, cabbages, okra, vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and sweet potatoes have been harvested
- Families benefit from buying and selling of food in the local market
- Relief from pressure of food shortage and employment challenges
Pastor Moses claims that the irrigation is a great breakthrough for the church, and that it will change many lives for good and transform the community. Their food diet has completely changed.
Zikomo! (Thank you) For helping make a real difference in families lives in Malawi!
Pastor Moses and Word of Grace Church, Bimbi
HAHFA funds were sent last week and Moses purchased and distributed buckets, soap, gloves to the needy and 7 churches. “We are so thankful!”
May Ps Moses minister to us with his words :
“We thank God because the whole of being a Christian is FAITH AND LOVE.
Faith brings man to God, Love brings man to man.”
“The people have many questions, some are answerable but others need discernment. We thank God because in every situation He has answers to the pandemic or challenges .”
“2 Chronicles 7: Verse 14 provides the solution but the best answer is be Humble and Pray”
Malawi (HAHFA) had a very successful and pivotal mission trip to Malawi in May 2012. Relationships continue strengthen and grow with our friends there, and with our partners from Emmanuel International, several long-term development initiatives were begun. Two different types of Village Savings and Loans programs were supported, support was given for a community initiative to begin a bee-keeping business and several orphanages were supported with food for children during this famine period.
