So who are we?
Well best to describe us as older (60 and 61 years) Praise-matic, non-denominational Christians who love Jesus, enjoy Holy Spirit’s presence and leading (especially when we listen and hear him) and are so grateful for the love of our Father. We know, that we know, that we know, that we are called to be here in Bangula doing what we are doing. This is our home there is no other. Pam has a back ground as a teacher and assistant head mistress at a Botswana school for 9 or so years having raised her two daughters as a single parent she knows what trusting is about. I (Will) have a background in residential housing construction, I have five grown children and between Pam and I we have 15 wonderful grandchildren. We know the heartache and encompassing devastation of divorce and the miracle of resurrection to an amazing life, marriage and walk with Holy Spirit. What wonderful grace!
What do we do?
Our present task (hmmmm since August 2003), is to provide a home and future for our 121 orphaned, and/or abandoned babies and children who live with our staff and us. On occasion we have taken a goodly number of medical outreach teams into more rural areas. This may be happening again probably as day trips. As well we enjoy sharing/preaching/teaching as we can where we can, when we can. We live in the Shire Valley located in the south part of Malawi Africa, a place (we are told) was once used as a disciplinary posting for out of favor Government officials…the heat, the housing, the remoteness, the roads and the high rate of Malaria, provided the disciplining. Our babies come from local Chiefs, Hospitals, relatives and broken-hearted Dads…. all thru social Services, when they have the resources to follow-up the desperate and immediate issues of lives ,. Moms die from many different causes including HIV (include opportunistic diseases due to HIV) Birth Complications, Malaria, and many other causes. The babies are brought days and even hours old and we do our best to bring them thru …..sometimes these little ones do not survive due to sepsis, malaria, pneumonia and other issues. Upon receiving them, we immediately take them to the local clinic for a check-up. For the past year and a half we have taken them to our Blantyre Baby House with excellent results however now since closing that house, will upon Govt approvals be keeping them here in Bangula again.
How do we do what we do?
Pam and I are partnered (grafted in would be a better term) to/with Generational Hope Christian Center, Pastor Ed Polreich in Maple Valley, Washington, USA , as well as Word Alive
Ministries International, Rev Dr. Zacc Kawalala in Blantyre , Malawi. GHCC has faithfully assisted with monthly funds for our personal support for nine years. Other friends from that body have been by our side continually as well with love, counsel, finances and support in many ways. Word Alive has been our good support in providing a kind partnership to facilitate our purposes here. Counsel and wisdom from both sources have been so welcome. There are many friends and friends of friends and people we do not yet know , family,….It is an amazing assortment of so many different people all walks of life , beliefs and different denominations and different streams of thought all joined together to assist us in what we are doing … It is incredible and totally unimaginable to us, as to how so many different people from UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, even from China a few years ago, a dear family sent funds…. Funds come from some (not many) as a regular monthly assist with an amazing regularity from UK friends the last few years. We are likely receiving 30 perhaps 35% perhaps more regularly from the same people each month. The balance comes at sporadic times from many different people as they sense the time is right to help out… It truly is amazing \O/ As to how we do the other things in our life, it is just one day at a time, sometimes we do very well and sometimes we wish we had done much better. We always keep going if we fall it is forward we like what a friend Roland has said “We stumble our way to Victory !!!!” You are surely welcome to stumble along with us it really is quite an amazing way to live…\O/ If you can… please come over.
