Two hundred dollars goes a long way
Pictured above is Pastor Copeland Nkhata and orphaned children with HIV/AIDS who needed food and medicine this month in Malawi.
Their need was met by Stacy Radmore (pictured below in a remote village without fresh water)
Stacy is one of several contributors to our orphan care project in Mzuzu, Malawi. She was tempted to spend her money for new LL Bean ski jacket that costs $199. Instead, she sent $200 to WorldHope Corps to help 12 children in dire need of food and medicine in time of AIDS and a global recession.
I just received this email update from our partner Copeland Nkhata, pastor of the United Methodist Church in Mzuzu, who with his congregation cares for over 60 orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children in the neighborhood.

Dear Brother Mike,
THIS IS FOR STACY.
I thus report that the US$200.00 from Stacy was used in the following way:
1 Felex and Emily --a sibling headed family. They are hiv/aids victims but very zealous for the Lord.
2 Towera and Elia a very vulnerable couple with 3 children. They have zero income a month but a tried christian family.
3 Witness Mwale is a woman with 6 children at one of our rural churches on the way to the lake. She is very vulnerable but a blessing in church.
4 Elton an orphan in form 4 needy and often left alone on account of his economic situation. He is such a lovely boy though.
5 School materials for Rachel an orphan who really needed help at the time this money came. She now is at the university.
6 Medicines for Asante-- one orphan who is hiv/aids positive in the Hope Home program.
I and the leadership of my church are happy that Stacy and you Mike decided to bless our circuit in this way. May the Lord always remember you and multiply your resources.
Love to you from the recesses of our hearts. Some day I will send you their pictures. Its the lack of a digital camera that hinders me from remmiting pictures in time as I always have to borrow from friends.
