MALAWI AFRICA Child Development Centres (CDC) receive much needed boost from Southside Nazarene Christmas Eve Offering.
All the NCM Canada CDC funds this past year, went to Child Development Centres (CDC) in Malawi, Africa. NCM Canada is supporting a group of 7 CDCs that are held in Church buildings in Lilongwe Rural district about 40 km outside the capital city of Lilongwe. Between the 7 CDCs over 500 children attend.
The CDC funds were used for supplies such as chalk, sports equipment (soccer balls and skipping ropes), notebooks, teacher's supplies, and a refresher training for all the CDC teachers.
*Please pray for the teachers as they find it difficult to make a living to feed their own families when they commit this time to the CDC children, but God is using them to help build His Church. As one recent visitor to the CDC's said,
“I saw how God would use the teachers of the CDC to preach the gospel to the children through song and games…. because of this the children were becoming messengers of the gospel to their own parents and community. The church grows by one child spreading the truth”.
