God has blessed with an increase in team members and our first goal has been reached!  In April, I was officially promoted to Director of Africa and given responsibility over four countries. Now, we are working on our second goal of raising our work support.

There are trips planned and MANNA Sundays scheduled.  We are excited to see what God is going to do!

While pockets of severe deprivation do exist in the West’s land of plenty, the overall picture of the poor is starkly different in the rest of the world.

The dollars and cents of poverty beyond the shores of the United States is sobering beyond words. According to the United Nations-commissioned Millennium Project: "More than one billion people in the world live on less than one dollar a day. Another 2.7 billion struggle to survive on less than two dollars per day. Poverty in the developing world however, goes far beyond income poverty. It means having to walk more than one mile every day simply to collect water and firewood; it means suffering diseases that were eradicated from rich countries decades ago."

The task of eradicating poverty is monumental. We may never in our life time accomplish it, but we can make a difference in the life of a few.  Would you like to have a part? Join us and MANNA Worldwide in making a difference in the life of a child!

We would like to start planning trips to Africa for the latter part of this year. If you would like to go with us, or have any questions, contact us at
