Evangelizing with the JESUS film Malawi
Oct 26, 2007 -

This summer, after one week of getting oriented to the Malawian culture for the first time, I had an opportunity to accompany the older children of Mtsiliza village to evangelize in a nearby smaller village. Since this was my first trip to Malawi, I did not have a clue as to what to expect and was excited to watch and learn!

A New Farm in Malawi—A Future of Feeding Malawi
Oct 1, 2007 -

Last week, Tom Mambo (Malawi Country Director) and the board of trustees visited Nchi Chere Farm (pronounced chee-CHAIR-ee), a 350-acre farm COTN has the opportunity to purchase. The Malawi Board of Directors recently approved the purchase and COTN President Chris Clark will visit Malawi later this month to give final approval. Pray that the property is all we anticipate it to be and that it will be approved.

The Process of Learning Malawi
Oct 1, 2007 -

When the interns come to Malawi, one of the first things I tell them is this: “It is not what you come to Malawi to do that is important, but what you learn.” I believe that in this life, God asks us not to be doers, but to be learners. Of course there are many great works to do, many things that God does indeed ask us to do, but the process in getting those tasks done is of far greater importance than the actual task. The journeys—the lessons learned—have eternal value, while the tasks themselves, in time, will fade away.

Living Out a Dream—in Malawi! Malawi
Oct 1, 2007 -

As a little girl, I knew that my life-long dream and goal was to help many people in many different ways. Since becoming a teacher seven years ago, I have had the opportunity to help 140+ American children learn basic academic and life skills. Four years ago, I was asked to be part of a COTN Education Team that would teach in Malawi, Africa. At first, I was hesitant to answer the call. Africa??? Now I look forward to teaching there every summer!

A Spiritual High for Malawian Teens Malawi
Jan 29, 2007 -

Our teenage children in Malawi were able to attend their first annual teen spiritual retreat this December. It was put on entirely by Malawian national staff and volunteers (including three African Bible College students who were part of our team to Uganda this past summer). The retreat was seen as a huge success by all. We had a number of children accept Christ into their lives for the first time. Our teens are already looking forward to their next retreat!
