At Kondanani we are grateful to the many people who support us worldwide including our friends who send gifts to our children from Canada to Malawi. One such couple is Pete and Bettie. They are originally from Holland but emigrated to North America. Bettie sews the most beautiful dresses for the girls at Kondanani and finds people who are coming out to Malawi to deliver them.
We recently received our latest parcel delivered from Canada to Malawi by Kevin Beal and David McCarty. Thank you so much Pete and Bettie, we appreciate you.
From Malawi to Canada and back!
Bettie and her sister Margie, also in Canada read the biography of our founder, Annie Chikhwaza, Mother of Malawi and invited her to Canada. Annie went to visit them and it turned out that she and Margie were at primary school together in a small village in Friesland! Then Annie also found out that Pete and his brother grew up in the same street in the Dutch village where she spend her childhood. What a small world.
We so appreciate the support of individuals, couples, families and organisations who support us in many different ways, whether by sending clothes or Christmas gifts, sponsoring a child or contributing to our annual grain reserve. We also have friends in places as far away as Australia who have sent us a container full of suppliers. Others have provided medical and dental equipment. All of these generous contributions are grateful received and certainly put a smile on our children’s faces.
It is wonderful to see there are so many people who still have such a heart for widows and orphans even as the world faces tough times. Thank you to our friends in North America and everywhere who support us so faithfully. You are making a huge difference. Perhaps you may consider a missions trip to Kondanani, we especially need medical practitioners and teachers. Or you may not be able to travel to Africa, we would still love to hear from you.
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” (James 1:27)
