Here are reports on recent GCI activities in Africa.

Malawi

With help from a member in France, a much-needed bicycle was provided recently to Mr. Chafa, who takes care of the GCI congregations meeting in Bunda and Ntuwasweka, Malawi. Mr. Chafa had been walking over six miles each week from his home in Bunda to Ntuwasweka to serve the people there.

Waters of Life

Sometimes we forget what a blessing it is to be able to turn on a faucet and have fresh, clean, cool water gush out. Many are not so fortunate. I am most often reminded of this on my trips into rural areas of Southern Africa. A 25-liter container and a several-kilometer walk to the nearest muddy stream provide enough water to keep a household alive for another day.
