It’s hard to imagine what it takes to survive when literally every part of your world has died or collapsed around you. That’s why I’m amazed by Nyson Ndenda’s story. His is truly a story of hope replacing despair in a remote village in a forgotten place.
Nyson's father died first, then his mother. Leaving him the eldest of 4 siblings. Their home was a typical mud bricked house with a thatched roof. Though it barely provided shelter from rain and storms, it was all their parents left them. To leave the house and land would mean losing them permanently. When alive, their parents must have modeled perseverance and strength.
Though without parents, this little household worked hard to provide food to eat and earn money to pay for school fees and tuition. Even so, there were days they didn’t eat and times they couldn’t pay for school.
When the Passion Center learned of their plight, they were brought in as a Child Headed Household. Shor...
It was a beautiful event seeing all the smiles and feeling the hope of those
present. Our first infants and guardians in the Infant Rescue Project (IRP) were there as were Passion Center staff, Group Village Chief Mindando, the proud Community Health Network volunteers, Abusa Saul- the Passion Center Ex. Director and a crowd of friends and villagers. Abusa Million spoke, shared the gospel and emphasized the hope this ministry brings to many families and villages.
At the end of the event, each Passion infant/guardian in the IRP received their first care pack put together based on the age and need of the baby.

We are very hopeful for this new ministry and we’re praying for sponsors and partners to join us. Each Passion infant/guardian in the IRP needs a praying sponsor, one who will give towa...
Here's a quick snapshot of our growth of the Pastoral Ministry at the Passion Center from our trip in October:
Our Passion Center for Pastors branch of our ministry has been a huge blessing in furthering the message of the gospel in Malawi. Training continues to build up the key agents of Grace in over one hundred remote villages. What an opportunity to strengthen and plant new churches in areas that don’t have electricity and running water, and won’t have them in our lifetime. These men and women participate enthusiastically, study diligently and serve humbly. We ask that you please pray for these pastors; for laborers to train even more pastors, and for financial partners to expand the training. Thank you for your continued support.
