Village Well in Zowe

Here's a brief report on the Zowe Village Well project sponsored by Mr. Mike Ross of Central Presbyterian Church and two of his professional colleages in the USA.

CitiHope Country Director Gabriel Wesley Msongole writes:

Zowe is a small village in Euthini Area, Mzimba District, in Northern Region of Malawi (80km or 3 hours outside of Mzuzu). It is a remote area where there is no power (electricity); they use hurricanes for light. Zowe has a primary school and a prayer hut church in larger catchment area of 14 villages with a total population of 5,000.

Zowe was brought to our attention by Rev. Copeland Nkhata who travels there to preach as part of his Methodist Circuit of Mzuzu. According to Rev. Nkhata: “Zowe is a very dry place and people suffer a lot, as they have to drink dirty water from the same ponds where animals drink, especially in dry season and this makes people more vulnerable to diseases. And a borehole would be a great solution to the problem.”

PACCT III Leadership

Day Two by Paul Moore Jr.

PACCT was excellent today and Moira was up and at ‘em – perhaps a little more intense than she normally is. She is a genius and such a wonderful woman of God. And it was great seeing the Malawians do their thing – the kids really respond to them. “Hippo in the Water” exercise went over especially good today. We’ll see how “Problem Tree” and “Snake in the Bathroom” do tomorrow.

Blessings and Kevin (from Drew University) arrived by 1:00 pm and I had them join a panel discussion on the ABC’s of HIV/AIDS.

Rev. Copeland is just the guy. He came to PACCT III today just to make sure his youth were doing well and contributing. So did a few other pastors.

I did my whole “be a man” thing with the guys – they kept saying women needed to learn life skills to be able to say “no” to having sex with a boy. I went off on what about our job as men – as leaders – as warriors to STOP ASKING THEM – and to create a culture of men that honors, not uses, women. They got in…
