Kondanani Update from Annie, February 2022

Annie Chikhwaza, shares this latest Kondanani Update to keep you in the loop of all that is happening in the Children’s Village….

The last few weeks have been hectic and it still is. After the big holidays catching up takes time. Children are all back at school, and some of the university students. The last ones to go will be on the 21st of February. The results of the O levels and A levels are coming in bit by bit, all delayed by covid.

The results of the delay are that quite a few of the youngsters have given a ‘Year of their life’ to Kondanani. I can truly say, they have been amazing, of very great value in the school and hospital. We will be sad to let them go sometime this year to various colleges and universities. We are working hard on getting sponsors for them. Please spread the message and help us.

A year of your life, Kondanani Update

Pictured below is our monthly blood pressure clinic assisted by our grown up youngsters who are devoting a Year of their Life to Kondanani. We have as a result saved many people from having strokes. The other two pictures show the Esther Meyer Memorial Children’s Hospital. It’s all about making a difference.

Cheryl and our team at the Lewis Chikhwaza Academy have been short staffed for several months now. Fortunately we have Marion, Dylan and Rachel, all three from South Africa, who have come to help for the next three months and that helps so much. Pray with us that the Lord of the Harvest will send more missionaries, especially teachers, we really need it.

A farmer would also be very welcome to oversee the Fila Farm, one who will also take care of the Cheese factory too. We are now supplying 400% more than in October last year. So grateful for the electrical tub installation to make the cheese in, which my brother donated. Joel and his wife who make the cheese, are working overtime.

We have a young woman staying on our premises from 🇦🇹 Austria, who is doing her masters degree, she is a lovely Christian and she is helping a lot. Father God provides extra hands.

You may have heard of the Cyclone Ana. It did visit us, but at Kondanani the damage was minimal. It is not a nice feeling though to have for several days on end, the hardest rain, wind and thunder you can imagine. Around us in the villages houses falling down, it’s sad.

It’s quite dry now and the maize is growing fast 😐. That sustains the average Malawian who have to grow their own food.

Our hospital is very busy every day. Sister Mieneke and the doctor hardly have a minute to themselves. Malaria is increasing at this time of the year.

Our farm is fruitful, the calves are coming and we also have two sheep. Sheep don’t multiply that fast, but it’s lovely to have them. One of our former presidents, whom I visit and pray, with donated them. We are blessed!
