WorldHope Malawi Ready to Rock and Roll

Pastor Dennis greeting students at Point Loma Nazarene University
Josie, Dennis and Michael
Dennis Singini's "American Adventure" 7-week tour has concluded and he has returned to Malawi to ramp up and rock and roll as Program Director of WorldHope Corps Malawi.

On behalf of the board of directors, I want to thank Josie Dittrich (Dennis' USA Tour sponsor) and WorldHope Corps' many friends, followers and supporters who met, hosted or prayed for Dennis during his 7-week, 12-city USA tour; and who helped him with friend-raising, fund-raising and educational opportunities. Together, we succeeded in equipping Dennis for a new level of responsibility and in raising his program budget for Malawi. 

All totaled, we raised over $50,000 in gifts-in-kind, cash donations, and pledges during Dennis's tour! This is a tremendous provision that lets us procure and distribute 700+ Mosquito Nets for "No More Malaria", do free eye exams and issue 1000+ prescription Eye-glasses, sponsor an HIV/AIDS Shalom training event, and start a new village well monitoring and maintenance program.  We also received two $10,000 pledges to drill two new Village Wells in the New Year.  And, most importantly, we raised enough staff support to employ Dennis as Program Director for WorldHope Malawi this year.

One of the most delicious fruits of our labor, or rather, one of most gracious and generous gifts received during Dennis' American Tour, was a cash offering of $1,895 toward the purchase of a motorcycle for the circuit-riding ministry of Pastor Dennis as he visit the 12 churches he planted and some of the 50 village wells he personally drilled or facilitated drilling for WorldHope Corps.  This special gift was contributed by the members of a Sunday School class led by Professor Dean Nelson at San Diego First Church of the Nazarene.  

We still need another $1,000 to purchase a newer motorbike for Dennis, as well as additional funds for village wells and training events, so please help out if you can.

The easiest way to support Dennis and WorldHope Corps is to give online at  www.worldhopecorps.org (designating your gift for a WorldHope Malawi project, motorbike or staff support).

Dennis Singini's "American Adventure" Tour Concludes in Georgia

Zech 4:6 "'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.'"

By Josie Dittrich, Tour Sponsor

I'm sure that everyone who hosted or met Dennis experienced the same thing I did: a one-on-one of the living Gospel. The Spirit of God within Dennis manifesting the Christ-like compassion, wisdom, insight and overwhelming love for mankind. 

After months of planning and looking forward to Dennis being in the U.S., his two-month, seven state, ten city "American Adventure" has come and gone. Once it started, it sure went fast! Thanks to each of you for your friendship and support in helping to supply and fortify Dennis with his many continuing efforts in Malawi through WorldHope Corps, Communities of Shalom, Lions Club Golden Isles, Talitha Kum/Wezi House of Grace and of course, preaching. The results will be continuing in marvelous ways none of us can conceive at this time.

While Dennis was in St. Simons Island, GA., he spoke to the Lions Club Golden Isles, who to-date, have donated 1000+ used prescription eye glasses & shipped them to Mzuzu. Dr. Robert Millican of the Millican Eye Center, secured and refurbished a SureSight Vision Screener, which has a retail value of $6000. Dr. Millican trained Dennis how to use this amazing medical device and has sent it with him . . . to do the outreach that began with 35 pairs of Dollar Tree eye glasses that I mailed to Dennis several years ago. 

This medical device is purposely developed for remote locations where there is no electricity. In a few seconds of time, prescription eye needs can be accessed. Then the 1000+ glasses, which have the prescription marked on them and have been sorted accordingly, will be able to be matched up easily. 

Please see the attached article of The Brunswick News regarding Dennis & The Lions Club. It isn't totally accurate, but it gets the general story across. BTW: at the end it states the distribution to 20 villages in Northern Malawi will take a few days. Actually, it will take at a minimum of several weeks of time spread across months, as time allows. 

This has been a dream come true for me. It is an answer to prayers that I could never have imagined. Thank you, Father God, truly, "'not by might or power, but by My Spirit' says the Lord Almighty." It is a miracle . . . there is no other explanation. 

Respectfully and gratefully submitted,
Josie Dittrich
