….in Malawi Orphan Care Project
Manna for Malawi Event
The 2018 event will be June 24th from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at the Woodtick Inn in Cuyuna. Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys will be the featured band.
Preliminary calculations from Immanuel Lutheran Church in Crosby say the four-hour effort to raise money for the orphan feeding program in Malawi, South Africa brought in $14,660 and change. All proceeds from that Sunday’s music and food festival will go to support the program that feeds roughly 800 orphans and food-challenged children at the Malawi Orphan Care Project mission near Salima, Malawi. The mission supported by churches in Ohio, Wis-consin, Minnesota and Winnepeg began 12 years ago. Another team of temporary missionaries is in Africa this week, working at the mission and doing the work of our Lord. Thanks be to God.
The amount raised this year so far from the Crosby, Minnesota area is actually closer to $54,000, one official said. A recent matching program to purchase land for a farm in Malawi brought in $40,000 earlier this year. Roughly 60 Im-manuel Lutheran Church members helped plan, organize, and execute this year’s Manna for Malawi. The total raised so far is an estimate and is expected to rise.
