“We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you”. Psalm 33:20-22
Throughout our 12 years living in Malawi, Psalm 33 became an important scripture for me as we faced many uncertainties, illnesses, dangers, and the great need of the country around us. Dependability was not to be expected from our surrounding environment, so, our dependence on God grew as we waited in hope for the Lord to be our help and shield. Our hearts did indeed rejoice in this as we put our trust in Him.
As we began taking medical help to the rural community of Ngodzi, I saw an even greater dependence on God there for those who know Him. I see the joy and peace of God in them despite their suffering, poverty, illness, or circumstances. I am always humbled by their expressions of thankfulness to God for His great faithfulness and for His abundant love towards them. In their suffering and difficulties, God is their hope, and they wait patiently for Him. They seek Him fervently in prayer, singing joyful praises to their Saviour, and at times they cry out in lament as they feel the burden of their immense needs.
Lifeline Malawi is the answer to the prayers of many of the people and leaders in the community. There is no other place like Lifeline Malawi which shares the love of Jesus with the thousands of people that come to the clinic each month. There is no other medical help in the region for them or for their families, whether it be maternal health services, vital malaria treatment, HIV therapies, wound dressings, or childhood illnesses, just to name a few of our points of care. Through our faith and hope, and His unfailing love with us, we are able to make a huge difference in the lives of the people of our community, We do not do this without God connecting us to people like you who support this work. Together we are transforming lives and giving them hope and a better future through our trust in Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your faithful interest and support of Lifeline Malawi. The work is excellent, and I pray that the fruit it bears will glorify the Lord, and bring many lives to know Jesus.
