Angelina, is a widow with three children. She met disciples in 2020 through some Bible study meetings that took place in her neighborhood. It was during this period that she received the invitation to study the Bible and later gave her life to Christ.

Angelina is a merchant, an activity she carried out in the public square to support her family. In mid-2021, she faced serious health problems, a situation that left her without the strength to continue her activity as a trader, as well as creating immense difficulties to support her family. Because of this, two of her three children were unable to continue their studies.

We ask for help of $1000 to help her rent a better house because where she currently lacks electricity, help with her children's studies, food and her commerce.

Thank you so much for your love and generosity.

Joan was baptized in October 2010. Joan Nyangi is a single mother with four girls. She separated from her husband four years ago leaving her to care for her families needs.

Joan's main challenge is meeting the basic needs, as one of her daughters has a growth in one of her breasts and is on costly medication and under the doctors watch. Joan has been trying her hand in business, but with covid shutting down most small businesses it has become a serious challenge providing support.

She is seeking $750 to help with her daughters medical expenses as well as take care of some basic needs. Thank you in advance for your love and support!

Agripina was baptized on April 14, 1992 and is a mother of 3, ages 21, 16, and 8. In February 2021 while she had gone to do work at a small business in Gikomba, her husband took his stuff and left her, leaving her to fend for her family. She has to take care of rent which is $900 USD.

She did not know where to go, but luckily with the help of disciples she was able to move into a one bedroom house with her children. She is a business woman, but Covid-19 has caused a strain on her. She has had a lot to deal with and a lot of things to pay for. With two of her kids in school, one in high school and the other in Primary, it has been hard paying their tuition. It has also been tough in Gikomba (where she works) due to the constant fires that burn her stock of goods.

It has been tough providing food, rent, school fees, and other needs for her children. The money she brings in from her business is not enough to support everything. She is asking for $750 to help take care of her needs.

After the death of my husband, I struggled for several years to take care of my children, I had the idea of opening a small convenience store where I sold vegetables, soft drinks and other day-to-day. With this business, I was able to overcome my financial instability and support my children.

Due to the pandemic, a scarcity of goods on the market, thus causing the price to rise. I had to lose my capital, I find myself in difficulty paying the rent. I ask for financial assistance while I am going through these difficult times. God protects you!

I am asking for $750 to help with rent and food for my family. Thank you and God bless!

My name is Takoma Mambucha from Blantyre, Malawi. My wife is Angela. We're both baptized disciples. I was baptized in January 23, 1999. We have 3 children - a boy and 2 girls. The 1st born is Maggie she's 13 years and in her first year in high school. Second born is Marcus, he in the 4th grade. And our youngest is Malaika, she is in the 1st grade.

I assist a colleague in a private Primary School. The problem is we don't have enough students enrolled to take care of our salaries through out each term, a term is made up of 3 months, as a result we have low salaries. At the end of each term we struggle in getting our salaries, because by that time most parents have not finished paying fees. I get almost 80 dollars as a salary per month, because of this I can't afford to pay for Maggie's school fees at the same time take care of my family. But also currently because of this covid pandemic government has been ordering closure of schools to protect the students and the teachers. At times for over 7 months, now that means 7 months without any salaries because we depend on the fees parents pay. That in itself has created more financial problems for my family.

Still need amount asking for $1000.

Thank You for your love and Support.
