Malawi was hard hit by floods earlier this year
and 15 districts were heavily affected. Lives were lost, gardens were
swept, livestock were drowned many people were displaced. They are still
living in camps as I write; the farm yield will be poor in most areas. This
means that hunger will strike as people will not harvest enough food for
We also have churches brought down in both Malawi
and Mozambique which raises the need for Iron sheets to repair such churches
as the members have no worshipping shelters.

On behalf of Zambezi Evangelical Church I thank you our partners for your
response to alleviate this suffering. The magnitude of the damages is so
huge we still want to continue asking for your material and prayer support
Posting of newly trained Pastors
We are thankful to God for allowing us to train church
ministers but we encountered a considerable problem when we were unable
to continue with ZACOM (Zambesi College of Ministry) and were stranded with
the remaining students unable to complete their training.
We thank God for

10. Please also pray that Malawi would have some more rain.

in March and then the rains mostly disappeared. Much of
the maize is still immature and beginning to wilt; the harvest
looks likely to be much reduced.
We bless the Lord for our partnership in the
