KW EDITOR'S NOTE :: This is a special Malawi Mission Partner Communique which was sent to our by Missionary John Holtz.
The rains were no surprise.
The floods were.
River banks can hold only so much. Land can soak in only so much. Sand bags can stop only so much.
Then the inevitable happens.
When floods come, fields go. When a cyclone hits, everything is hit. Soil erodes. Roofs cave. Houses collapse. Bridges break. Pit latrines become unusable. Dirt roads become impassable.
KW Editor’s Note: Diane Tracy is a member of a small Kingdom Workers team which recently spent two weeks in Malawi. Together with Kim Jefferies, Executive Director of the Brighton Center in San Antonio, TX and the KW Field Manager, they visited several shelters and disabilities support centers to observe and assess the needs of these centers. Both women are members of Our Saviors in San Antonio. We look forward to receiving their full report as KW continues to export this ministry.
(KW Editor’s Note: Kim Jefferies is currently in Malawi to assess resources available for children with disabilities and their families.
Malawi Disability Ministry: Kingdom Workers seeks to share the gospel with people who have intellectual and physical disabilities and to support, educate, and witness to their families in Malawi.)

nourished children, sparsely dressed (if at all), and women doing their laundry
in the river—deforestation is overwhe...
