Malawi Mission Trip 2022
Following the pandemic, we were forced to place our mission trips on hold. We are excited to be sending a father/daughter team to Malawi in 2022! Gary Underwood and his daughter Monica Barman have been tirelessly fundraising for their trip and will be traveling to Malawi in the summer of 2022 to continue our ministry in Africa.
Mission Malawi 2019
Pastor Amy Little, Jeff and Anna Little and Angie Swanbeck went to Malawi in June 2019. The mission was centered around literacy and they took 200 pounds of new books to the project. Below are some photos of their time in Malawi at Kanyenyeva Orphan Care Ministry.
Malawi Orphan Care Project
We are committed to serving our dear friends in Malawi through a ministry that we are partners with called Malawi Orphan Care Project (MOCP for short). We regularly go to Malawi to visit the Project in a small village called Kanyenyeva. This ministry has been in existence since around 2006 and serves 800 AIDS orphans by feeding and providing for their education.
These faithful servants of Christ cook nsima (a corn flour dish) for the children 6 days a week. It is back-breaking work, but they are devoted to keeping the children of their village healthy and strong. The top right picture shows a bag of nsima which would last one month for a family.
Monroeville Youth Club (MYC)
MYC has been in existence in the village for over 20 years. It is an after-school program for elementary aged kids where we teach Bible stories, cook in the kitchen, do crafts, play games, sing and more! Our Youth Club is held for two sessions each school year, meeting on Wednesday’s after school until 5pm. Thanks to the generosity of The Twenty First Century Foundation, we are able to provide this wonderful ministry that typically includes outreach to 40-50 children. Please visit our youth ministries page to find out when our next Youth Club will begin!
This group of “sewing ladies” meets on the first and third Wednesday of the month. They make quilts and donate them to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, and to other people in need. The ladies make other items as needed as well such as: dresses for Malawi girls, shorts for Malawi boys, Days for Girls, pillowcases for kids in foster care, and more.
