We want to thank everyone who gave toward George’s March birthday fundraiser for the purchase of the maize, the main ingredient for the nutrition mix which feeds the 1,000 students in our 12 schools. It sounds like an amazing amount of food, but we needed 33,000 pounds of maize, which is enough to feed all the children for an entire year. This is the best time of year to purchase, because it’s harvest time, when the price is the lowest.
We prayed and asked, and God answered prayer. He put it in many people’s hearts to give. So, we give God praise, and thank everyone who gave.
The second goal of that fundraising was to drill wells on Chisi Island, where none of the 24 villages has a clean water source. We started mission Bible studies on Chisi, an unreached island in the middle of Lake Chilwa, in June of last year. Our team is now leading weekly Bible studies in three villages there. As a result, many men and women are now born again. Then, in March we began registering men and women in Bible School. Out of those Bible studies, approximately 46 are now attending one of the three Bible school campuses there!
In January, friends of the ministry gave $10,000 which will enable us to drill two wells on Chisi Island. Then, in March, an additional $4,000 came in, which brings us closer to the $5,000 needed for a third well. Our goal is four much-needed wells.
Since clean water is an urgent need on Chisi Island, please consider giving to help us bless these new believers with clean water.
Our work is in rural villages of Southern Malawi, one of the poorest nations on earth, We are now providing tuition free Christian education to children in 8 villages. The children receive a nutritious meal daily.
We are George and Phyllis Crispi. Our work started many years before we began our work in Malawi. Our earliest work in missions goes all the way back to the mid 1990's.
We have worked in Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Peru, Venezuela, Haiti, Ireland, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia, Togo, South Africa, Swaziland, and Malawi. We have also worked in disaster relief in the United States. We have built churches, orphanages, drug treatment centers, and schools.
Our work in Malawi began May of 2010 with well repairs and health and nutrition instruction. Since then, our work has expanded to include many other compassion ministries among the poor in the rural villages of southern Malawi.
We established churches and are teaching the Bible and discipleship classes in six rural villages.
Hundreds of children are learning who Jesus is and how to follow Him.
We have distributed hundreds of Bibles.
Farming God's Way not only teaches farmers better farming methods, but how to honor God with their lives by living their lives by biblical principles:
Clean water saves lives. Drilling water wells relieves the burden of women and girls who otherwise would spend hours each day collecting water. Having a well in her village will help girls stay in school and helps prevent dropout and early marriage.
The seven bridges we have built to date have helped over 1,000 children attend school during the rainy season. Bridges also opens commerce and trade and shortens the distance women must travel to the markets and the maize mills.
Preschools and kindergartens in six rural villages.
Full day of workshops every two weeks, internships, peer teaching, and co-teaching. We are providing training for a career in teaching to very poor villagers. Education and opportunity gives dignity thst lifts people out of poverty.
We are now feedinf and educating over 1,000 students. preschool and kindergarten students, many from non-Christian families receve instruction each day including learning short catechisms, Bible stories Aesop’s Fables, Music, Structured Play, and Science. And they learn to pray.
