Tim McNamara (Neighbour’s Aid/Nambour Christian College)
Malawi, a tiny country in Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the world’s poorest nations. Since 2005 Neighbours Aid has partnered with Malawi NGO Shekinah Education Foundation for Orphan’s Relief and Development in establishing a children’s home for orphaned and vulnerable children, two primary schools, a high school, medical clinic and farming initiatives. A poultry farm and hardware store ensure that the project is moving towards self sustainability.
Each year leaders’ seminars which include healthcare, HIV/AIDS and nutrition are conducted in the villages. Nambour Christian College staff, high school students and parents participate in a bi annual trip which involves undertaking a practical project and classroom activities with the staff and students of the schools. Neighbours Aid partners work closely with Social Welfare, Education and Health Department officials in Malawi.
Please pray for Tim and the team
· That this year’s trip is successful and achieves its goals
· That the team shine the light of Christ in the world
· That the accompanying students develop a heart for gospel mission
