Our mission is simple: to provide and care for the widows and orphans in the Madzanje region of Malawi. It comes straight from the Bible:
“Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” –James 1:27
We take that literally. It is our responsibility as followers of Jesus to care for those who cannot care for themselves. In Malawi, nearly 17 percent of the population is orphaned. These children are more likely to drop out of school, grow up malnourished and find themselves with children of their own that they can’t care for. Malawi needs people to break that cycle. In 2009, God called us.
“You can do what you can do,” God said. “Now do it.”
And so we built Esther’s House, a modest campus in the rural Madzanje region. Out of this campus, we care for over 80 orphans living with extended family in nearby villages, we house 8 children who have no other home and we care for 75 aging widows. We own many acres of farmland where we are working to grow all of the food we consume on our campus. We also use our campus as a base for planting churches all across the country, providing disaster relief during times of flood and drought and drilling wells in communities without fresh water.
Above all, our campus is a safe place for children and adults in need to come and find care, food and the love of Jesus. We’d love to have you join us. Visit our “Go” page to find out about how you can serve in Malawi or click the button below to change the life of a child from right where you are.
