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.

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! We hold two session each school year and each session is 6 weeks long, meeting on Tuesdays after school until 5pm. We are able to do this wonderful ministry that includes 40-50 children thanks to the generosity of the 21st Century Foundation. Our next session will begin after Easter, 2018.
This ministry is after-school tutoring program. Students are recommended by their school teachers for extra help in math, reading, and more. It is a free service to our community. If your child needs some extra help with homework or catching up in school, please call our Study Tables Director, Susan Sutton, a retired teacher, to schedule a day.

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.
