Retreat for High School Aged Orphans

These are some of the teenagers who will be going on a one day retreat in June, 2017. The retreat will focus on how to have healthy, Christian relationships with friends, future spouses, and family. There will be four days where twenty-five different students attend each day long retreat at Lake Malawi for a total of 100 teenagers attending.

 

These teenagers live about 40 kilometers from Lake Malawi and have never been there. This will be an amazing time in a beautiful area in their country where they will learn about faith and daily life, self-image, setting goals, overcoming obstacles, dating and choosing a life partner, and more. These sessions are based on My Zoe Journal written by Pastor Amy and sold through Sola Publishing.

 

 

 

 

The team includes Pastor Andy, Susan, Pastor Amy, Anna, Gary and Lorie from First English Lutheran Church, Mansfield, Ohio and Trinity Lutheran, Monroeville, Ohio. Shadreck and Yami Chikoti from Malawi will also lead some of the sessions.

 

Please pray for the presenters that they share what God intends and that the students learn what God has for them to learn.

 

Mission Trip 2016

DSCN8009This mission team has started their journey to Malawi. They should arrive in Malawi on Tuesday, May 24, 2016. Their first day at the orphan project will be on the 25th of May where they will lead a football (soccer) camp where they will teach football skills and share the gospel with the children. They also plan to help with the feeding program, visit some of the businesses that the Kanyenyeva Ministries has started, and learn about life in Malawi. They plan to return to the US on June 7.

Please pray for Pastor Andy, Egypt, Haley, Sarah, Angie, James, and Mitchell for safety during their trip, for relationships to continue to be developed with the people of Malawi, for God’s will to be done, for everyone to have fun, and for God to be glorified in all that is done.

Ken Ekegren will be returning to Malawi in 2016 with students from North Central State College to redesign rocket stoves that are used in Malawi. They hope that a business can be started selling these new rocket stoves. This article is from North Central State College Newsletter.
