 “And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink; truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.” Matt 10:42
If you went to Sunday school when you were small perhaps you remember the song, “Jesus Loves the Little Children of the World.”  Indeed He does!

Mwanza Preschool

 We have the privilege of loving little one’s through our 6 HOH preschools. Mwanza preschool is under Greater Harvest Discipleship Ministries.  Recently Gari, our National Administrator visited this project and discovered that 18 of the 42 children still look malnourished.  Most of the malnourished kids are between the ages of 3 and 4. Older children who have been in this project for at least a year are much healthier.

 Most of these children only get this one meal a day like this girl by the name of Previous Misiyo.  Previous walks the longest distance to come to the feeding center. She lives more than 5 kilometers from the preschool. Her eldest sister works at the local shopping center as a shop keeper.  Previous and her three siblings lost their mother in 2009, two years after Previe (as she is commonly called) was born.  Previe was sick most of the time before she started coming to the preschool. She is in her second year and is now healthy. She is looking forward to starting grade one next year.

 Because of your generosity we not only feed and educate these little ones but also teach them about the love of Jesus.  I wish you could hear some of them sing as they have the joy of the Lord despite their dire circumstances.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

For Him and for the children,

Glen and Patty
