Let's "Raise the Roof" for the Orphan Church



We're trying to raise $1500 for Rev. Copeland and his congregation in Mzuzu, Malawi, to replace the canvass roof of their church that serves as a sanctuary of safety, help and hope for 80 orphans and abandoned children affected by AIDS. Can you help?

Sarah Harrington, one of our mission trip volunteers who attended the Mzuzu church in March, put out this appeal:

Dear friends,

According to Copeland, a new tent to keep sun and rain out of the "tower of hope in a cornfield" also known as Mzuzu UMC has been estimated at $1,500USD. Michael is challenging those of us who have attended church there to raise these funds!

Please talk to those with whom you have shared your stories of Malawi and any others who might have a heart for Pastor Copeland's community and let's see if we can pull together enough funds to replace what was so wrongfully taken from them.

All donations should be made to WorldHope Corps in care of Michael Christensen, 11 Ardsleigh Dr., Madison, NJ. 07940.

Blessings to each of you,
Sarah
