“Container is here!” That’s the word Christ Church received this week from our partner Mercy Ministries International (MMI) in Chainda, Zambia. “The container” began its journey to Zambia on November 3, 2012 when more than 900 individuals gathered at Christ Church to help pack 286,500 fortified rice meals. These meals will feed 350+ orphans and vulnerable children attending Chifundo School (run by MMI) in a community affected by the ravages of HIV/Aids.
“Our appreciation goes to everyone in Memphis and at CUMC that contributed toward these meals!” exclaims Edna Phiri in an email to CUMC (photos courtesy of MMI). CUMC member and Christ Feeds steering committee member Steve Maroda says, “Christ Church is privileged to be able to come alongside MMI in the great ministry they provide to the Chainda community. What a blessing!”
Christ Feeds IV is set for October 19 so mark the date and get ready to fill another container…
