On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me four kgs of rice, two bars of soap, a big pack of sugar and one mosquito net!
This year our Africa ABC Initiative Team blessed 31 families with children with special needs as our Christmas ministry project. We felt God wanted us to focus close to home and supply needed supplies to these families that are the focus of our special needs program. In 2011, our service to the children with special needs and their families expanded and developed greatly under the leadership of our Term Partner, Kelsey Zeigler, who returned to the U.S. this past November. This past year she worked in partnership with Anna Checkley, an occupational therapist from the YWAM (Youth with a Mission) base here and they both trained our staff member, Master Litchowa. Master now leads the program with four parent volunteers and support from Josephina Musa (Chikondi Center for Children with Disabilities) and Joyce Kasambe (Feed the Children Malawi). A special thank you to Kelsey and her supporters for funding this special Christmas project! God is smiling!
