Dear Friend,

Thank you for your interest in supporting Mission Malawi 2012: a mission to help orphaned and destitute children in Malawi!  I believe that God will use us to reach those who are far less fortunate than we are!

This trip is all about orphaned and destitute children in Malawi…  But it is also about the love I have for my own children…  AND the love you have for yours!  I am a single Dad and I want to teach my children what it means to live outside of themselves.  I want Bella and Emily to understand just how blessed they are to live in 21st century America…  and to be PASSIONATE about helping those less fortunate.  I deeply desire my children to one day choose on their own to be God’s instruments of love to the lost and hurting of this world.

…And I want you to be a part of this mission.  The beginnings of a movement of parents who raise children to love and help others less fortunate.  A generation that values others and loves God!

This is why I have sponsored a little Malawian girl named Martha Hamzu.  She is about the age of my two little girls, however, child support for her is much lower…  🙂   Would you join me in praying that Martha would feel a part of my family?  That she would be overwhelmed with love from yours truly?  That Martha would someday be able to meet and feel loved by her American sisters as well?  My prayer is not only that Martha would be changed by this experience, but that my little girls will be changed as well.  I pray that Bella and Emily will learn, from a relationship with their Malawian sister, what really matters this side of eternity.

One adorable child...
This is Martha. She is absolutely adorable. She is almost 4 years old, born 7/8/2008. Her favorite color is blue. She lives with her mom and two brothers. Her family currently lacks sufficient food, clothing and other basic needs… This is now changed!

I am going to meet Martha this Summer!  I will be traveling to Malawi for a two week trip: from August 4th through August 17th, where my team and I will:

  • Help with construction of Malawi High School for orphaned and destitute children
  • Interview children (take pictures, video and record their unique stories) – Including Martha!
  • Paint children’s homes (interior and exterior)
  • Help children write letters to their sponsors
  • Teach community health education classes (basic sanitation and nutrition)

I am very excited about this adventure.  It has been several years since my last mission trip and I am eager to meet this sweet child.  I am going with the leadership of my old college room-mate, who is now working for an organization called “Children Of The Nations” (www.cotni.org).

ADVENTURE

I believe that we will be successful in our mission to bring hope and healing to Martha, her family, and her community.  I believe that God has already marked this trip a success.  I believe he can use a broken vessel like myself to affect this change.    And I want to give you an opportunity to be a part of this mission.

You have the chance to make a difference in Martha’s life and in the lives of many of orphaned and destitute children in Malawi.

I believe God for 30 prayer partners and $3,500 to make this trip happen well.  This is an invitation to change lives.

Please join me in teaching our children just how blessed they are.  Together we can teach the importance of loving others to the next generation!  Together we can be a part of changing this world forever…

Please pray about this opportunity.

Please join me in what God is doing in Malawi!

Love and Thanks,

JB Foreman
