Manna for Malawi

Manna for Malawi 2017


Manna for Malawi will be held on Sunday, June 25 from 4 – 8 pm. at the Woodtick Inn in Cuyna, MN.

The Lamant Cranston Band will perform again this year at this annual music and food benefit.

Other featured artists will include Gravel Roads, Christian country band based in Anoka.  Italian food prepared by Maucieri’s in Crosslake will be served. A freewill offering will be taken. Last year’s event brought in more than $25,000. All proceeds from the music fundraiser go directly to the MOCP feeding program.

Kanyenyeva Ministry Executive Director Shadrek Chikoti says “again, there will be hunger in most parts of Malawi this year. The price of maize continues to skyrocket in the coming months. More mouths to feed and less to feed them with. We are truly blessed by MOCP.”

Immanuel Lutheran Church in Crosby, MN sponsors this event which raises money for the feeding program.

MFM.2 Manna for Malawi raises over $11,000!!!!

Immanuel Lutheran Church (ILC) in Crosby, MN hosted concerts, a meal, and a silent auction to raise money for the upcoming ‘hungry season’ in Malawi. The first annual “Manna for Malawi” music and food benefit event was an incredible success. MFM.6

The event was held Sunday afternoon, June 28, at Brad and Jane Holmvig’s Woodtick Inn in downtown Cuyuna, Minnesota, 6 miles north of Crosby. More than fifty donated silent auction items perched on the pool tables and shelves across the room from the band stand.

ILC’s Churchyard Bluegrass band and an Anoka area band, Gravel Roads performed for three hours while hundreds ate Maucieri’s spaghetti, meatballs, and salad and washed it down with coffee and lemonade furnished by Crosby’s “Mixed Company” Kava House.

MFM.17So far, the donations, silent auction items and free will offerings have brought in over $11,000! And every nickel goes to support the orphan’s feeding program.

Thank you Immanuel Lutheran Church!!!!

Note: Due to the ill timed rains during the last growing season in Malawi, the harvest was very small. The orphan project is expecting to need to feed more children more often from November through March to help them survive until the next harvest.
