Moms In Touch – Malawi

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Most of you know of my loooong involvement with a group called Moms In Touch International. Well, I had the privilege of meeting the country coordinator, Mwawi Nyirongo! She is one busy lady!!

If you remember earlier in my trip, I visited the Crisis Nursery and fell in love with all the babies waiting for homes. Well, I got out the information on how to contact Mwawi and give her a hug from MOMS only to find out that she is in charge of the nursery, but hadn’t been there the day I had visited.

What an amazing woman; no kids of her own, but the mom to many, and a heart to have her country praying for their children.  I left her a Village Prayer Guide (from Leslie Lewis) and a huge hug from praying moms everywhere.

Crisis Orphanage

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

We spent some of Sunday afternoon at the Crisis Orphanage; where babies are brought that either have lost parents, or a parent can’t take care of them just yet.

I have a one month old in my arms, and 2 1/2 year old Blackstone took to Steve.  Blackstone was undercared for as an infant and is way behind in developement.  He is just trying to walk, is not verbal, but can sure smile!

We took plastic pants and will return with some blankets, because when a child gets a home, they send them with a blanket!
