Damson, right, giving out jackets to widows in villages around him in southern Malawi.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me… Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?” – Matthew 25:35-38
We have fed the widows in several villages in southern Malawi, and given them drink. We have visited them as strangers and now call them friends. We have visited the sick, and encouraged them to do the same for one another.
Food, bedding, companionship, Bible study, and a housing project still in progress in which new roofs are being put on many homes of the poorest of the poor. These are among the blessings we have been blessed to share with nearly 100 widows.
As brother Damson Samson, Climbing For Christ’s missionary to East Africa, recently resumed work on houses (after having spent time training guides and porters in the Mulange Massif Chapter in Malawi and Kilimanjaro Chapter in neighboring Tanzania), he saw another need.
June is the coldest month of the year in Malawi.
Damson again used part of the monthly support he receives from Climbing For Christ to help the many widows – buying jackets, warmer clothing, and blankets.
