Mission Malawi Well Update

Malawi Well Fund: There is great news to share. Because of continued bracelet sales and special gifts, the Emma and Claire Malawi Well Fund has now reached the goal for funding a third $10,000 deep drilled bore well. With requests for more bracelets, the project will continue. Proceeds from bracelet sales and special gifts will now go toward a fourth well, at the very least a $4,000 shallow well, and possibly another $10,000 bore well. The girls are also selling greeting cards (professionally done with Malawi pictures and in packets of 6 cards for $7.00) to help with the water well project and to provide funds for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Malawi Children's Education and Activity Center. In addition, originally designed artwork Malawi/Africa cards are available for purchase (6 cards for $7.00). The German artists (Maria Zacherl of Vilsbiburg and Sascha Hoelldobler of Aidenbach) are Emma and Claire Malawi Well Fund supporters. Cards can be shipped for an additional $2.00/order!
