In 2015, Reach Out partnered with Pastor Brighton and Dorothy Wanyemba to charter a Reach Out Church in Blantyre, Malawi. This new church plant targets urbanites in the city of Blantyre, former home of famed missionary David Livingston.
Reach Out began supporting orphans in Malawi in 2008, after being introduced to Pastor Brighton Wanyemba by Evangelist Elizabeth Austin. Church member Nancy Shaw raised funds that year by doing a rummage sale every weekend all summer long, proceeds from which helped Pastor Brighton build a foundation for what would become a school and orphan feeding station.
In 2009, Pastor Tom and his family visited Malawi to minister and assist wherever they could.Church member Sue Crawford prepared beautiful baby blankets which were distributed to mothers. In addition, food and clothing were purchased and distributed.
In 2010, proceeds from our church helped purchase goats for a number of families, who can use them for milk, meat and breeding.
In 2010, Pastor Brighton was able to purchase a grain mill, as well as to complete construction of a roof on God’s Hope Church, using funds generated from the monthly cake raffle at our church fish fry. Praise the Lord!
We continue to raise funds for Pastor Brighton’s projects through cake raffles and through direct donations. In addition, proceeds from bottle and can drives also help feed the orphans.
One redeemed bottle or can is enough to feed an orphan for a day!
