    Greetings from Eagles team members and the villages in the southern part of Malawi in Chikhwawa district. We are always grateful to God for the divine connection between your church and the work we are doing of transforming lives. The hope we get through your continued encourgement, prayers and financial support are not taken for granted. May the good Lord continue blessing you.

    In all of the villages where we are working in Chikhwawa, farmers are busy weeding and spraying chemicals in their cotton fields, while crops like maize, millet and sorghum are about to mature so they are about to begin harvesting.

    Dear Supporting Churches

    Kind greetings from the Eagles team and community members from different villages across Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. We thank God for you and your response to the noble call of reaching out to people who are faced with food insecurity, HIV/AIDs, unsafe water, spiritual emptiness and hopelessness through your conitinued financial support and prayers.

    In this update, our focus is on Ulongwe Living Waters Church in Ulongwe, Balaka District, who are actively engaged in HIV/AIDS prevention activities. The church has reached out to people affected by HIV/AIDS by empowering them through a community savings and loan group. The church has started three support groups which have 68 members (15 men & 53 women) altogether.

    Your support has helped Eagles to envison this church with integral mission. Local people are now able to save money in their group. This is loaned to each other and at the end of the year they share out the total. The money is then used to start small scale businesses and support their families, something they could not do in the past.

    Thank you.

    Winter greetings from Eagles team and community members from different villages where we work in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa.  We thank God that you have responding to His call of being an instrument in His hand, reaching out through your continued financial support and prayers to people who are faced with different life challenges like food insecurity, HIV and AIDs, lack of portable water, spiritual emptiness and living a life without hope.

    In four villages supported through Connected Church (Beka, Jasi, Mtayamanja and Nyasa), community members are now through harvesting crops planted under rain fed agriculture, the last crop being harvested was cotton. Farmers who grew cotton during the growing season have been offered better prices this year: MK210 (39p) per kilogram compared to MK100 (18p) per kilogram last year. This has enabled farmers who grow cotton to earn more money from cotton sales whereby enhancing their purchasing power and increasing their resilience to the effects of climate change. The major hiccup for most farmers was that they had small volumes of cotton because they planted late due to late access of seed.

    Grace Mwase with the Tsangano Living waters church pastor, Pr. Kaombe

    Grace Mwase is a 33 year old woman with 5 children, aged 14, 11, 5 and 8 year old twins. She tested HIV positive in 2011 and her husband was found to be HIV positive in 2010.

    Her last born is also HIV positive because she breast fed her for two years because she didn’t know her status. Her first born also has HIV because she was the one looking after her brother, the last born when he was sick and had sores all over his body and she didn’t wear gloves when caring for him. 

    This family situation was a heavy burden to her and she was bitter with her husband whom she believed passed the virus to her because he used to travel to different places for business and he had affairs with different women in those areas. He had hidden his status from her when he discovered that he was HIV positive.

    With the absence of a support group in their area, Grace had to carry her burden alone and it was eating her up emotionally.
