When you picture Africa – do you imagine diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife? Lions, giraffes, zebras, and elephants. This view of Africa appears in movies and magazines.
A different view of Africa reveals social inequality, low education, and crushing poverty. This hellish landscape of problems is faced by an abundance of ill-equipped youth.
In Malawi, Crossover Ministries International partners with River of Life, a holistic ministry that is changing the landscape in Malawi.
I’m so excited to tell you that I have an opportunity to be part of what God is doing in Malawi, Africa! In September, I will travel with Crossover Malawi to see their work at River of Life and the active Youth Skills Development Center.
This will be my first mission trip – ever. While hosting an episode of The Bridge Podcast about mission trips, I felt God was opening the door to this experience. (* Listen here...)
While in Malawi, I will share my testimony with large groups of people assembled at River of Life, and some of the students.
Crossover Ministries International Executive Director, Jack Eason has asked me to help facilitate large group sessions, and to provide lessons on leadership for the Pastors.
Your support will make it possible for me to travel to Malawi. Flights, lodging, and expenses total $4,200 – which is required by April 25, 2020 - for the mission trip to happen.
Please pray for safety during the trip. And for God’s provision to cover all the expenses. I sent this letter to friends and family who know my background and heart.
If just forty-two of you donated $100 each – the work God has asked me to do will be funded! I am grateful for your generous donation – and so are the people of Malawi.

Changing the landscape of the culture in Malawi starts with encouraging, equipping, and empowering kids like these!
With an 80% unemployment rate for educated youth, many young people are forced to turn to crime, prostitution, or other less-desirable activities in order to survive.
The vocational center is intended to help provide them with other skills to be able to find work.

The Community Clinic gives many people access to healthcare who otherwise wouldn't have it.
Culturally, women aren't given much of a voice in Malawi. Pastoral Conferences focus on giving women a time where they can be encouraged and empowered to make a difference for the gospel in their own spheres of influence.
Malawi’s people have amazing work ethics. The vocational school channels hard work into skills that provide income for their families. Social inequality, low education, and crushing poverty are the hellish landscape faced by an abundance of ill-equipped youth.
