2015 Challenge for Emseni House of Grace
- Written by Rod Fairbrother
The focus of the challenge this year was to support the work of the Emseni house of grace for abused and orphaned children in Phonjwane, Swaziland. I understand that the lady who runs the home has taken into her own small home a number of needy children and cares for them there. The project is to raise funds to build an extension to her home to accommodate the children, a very good cause.
I heard about the challenge through a MV meeting I attended and expressed my interest in being involved. I have always loved walking in the mountains and have led many groups on mountain walks including Snowdon on a number of occasions and by various routes.

Some real progress

We are beginning to make some real progress as you will see from the photos below.
The land has been bought, site cleared, bore-well drilled, foundations laid, building the ground floor medical centre and first floor children’s home is underway.

We spent 4 weeks in Sinazongwe, Zambia, conducting children's ministry and then travelled onto Lusaka in Zambia, central Malawi and
A spiritual mountain fire
- Written by Nigel Harding - Kampala, Uganda
In March, Nigel Harding was able to leave his pastoral duties for a week, to check on ministry activity in Karamoja. Some months prior we had sent funds to Pastor Robert Olupot of PAG churches in Moroto, received from Missionary Ventures International, for the construction of two churches on Mount Moroto. It was amazing to visit these new churches, and especially to hear the children rejoicing over what God was doing among the Tepeth people. We have just received news that another church has recently been planted higher up the mountain. A spiritual mountain fire has begun.

News from Nairobi, Kenya
- Written by The Matlack Family
These sweet kids live in a section of Ngando that was also affected by the flooding.
When the days are long, dry, hot and dusty, we all long for rain.
The gardens need rain.
Water for our homes becomes a problem. And the dust is just everywhere!
But, it seems that this year, things don't come to Nairobi in moderation. Because this last week, the rains came... with a vengeance.
