The month of March has been quite exciting FVM family concentrated on meeting the needs of some individuals directly. It was also such a time when Bible study was well patronized. There had been no rain for four weeks thereby scorching the remnant crops but thank God it rained three days ago.
The family with three children with albinism
The Phiri’s family leaves in Zomba. It has four children. Except the last born son, all the three are albinos. Someone may imagine such a family. Maria Phiri, the third born and the only girl has been assisted with tuition fees by FVM to study Home and Business Management at Chigodi Women Training Centre.
It remained a mere rumour in the past decade that in Tanzani and parts of South Africa there had been cases of abducting and killing of people with albinism which was alleged people use their bodies for rituals to become rich. It has also been alleged (not scientifically true) that people with albinism were being sexually defiled because it was (has been) believed that when the AIDS patients do sexual intercourse with them the patients are cured from the disease.
380 families (about 1,520 beneficiaries) were assisted with maize (corn), the main food in Malawi. The distribution exercise took place on 25th March, 2015. It was such a joyous moment in Taulo. They asked me to render their heartfelt thanks to FVM, all partners and supporters for the timely donation. In fact, the need is still huge.
SCOM (Student Christian Organisation of Malawi) Conferences took place from 27th to 30th March, 2015. Newton Sindo spoke on three conferences within two days on two topics: “Being a brother’s keeper” and “Christian values”. There were about 850 participants in total. FVM presented an academic award to Christian Students (SCOM members) who had done well academically over the past year. The Deputy Education Manager represented the government Minister of Gender, Children and Community Services, Hon. Patricia Kaliati who had travelled outside the country on government business.
After being used for 3 months, the house is now vacant. Thanks to Davie Ngalauka for the work well done. The Liebenzell Mission Team embers that used the house were grateful for being well accommodated at the house.
Spiritual Care Programmes
Pastor Justin Falinya continues to conduct Bible Study in the community. The number of participants increases each passing day. Between 30 and 80 people attend the weekly Bible Study in Taulo.
“Atsogoleri, sindikufunanso kusemphana ndi popogalamu ya kulingalira mozama pa Trans World Radio. Imanditsitsimutsa kwambiri (I don’t want to miss “The Time of Reflection” programme on Trans World Radio. It revives me so much).” W.S. Mvuliwa (from Ntaja). Ntaja is Islam dominated area but people still listen to the word of God through radio. The goodness of radio.
