Disappearing fountains

29 September 2018

Twenty years ago, rev. Chipeta was desperate. Two of his daughters had died within a year, leaving him to care for ten grandchildren. God spoke to him to start an orphanage but being penniless it seemed impossible.
His friend rev. Kobus Minnaar believed in his vision and donated a 100 kwatcha . With this token of faith and encouragement Home of Hope was started at Mchingi Malawi. Today it is “home” to 670 children.
Their only , but abundant source of water from a spring high up against the slopes of the mountain flows down among the trees of one of the last remaining forests in Malawi.
Reverand Kobus (89) reports that several of the reformed church missions in Malawi had received their water from fountains in the surrounding hills and these fountains had dried up when the trees disappeared due to charcoal making .
People with passion are needed to help replant the forests of Malawi and bring water and life back to the bare , brown hills.
