£2222 has been raised towards the £4500 target for the Mafuwa Water project. If each of our 15 congregations can raise £300 we can complete this and enable the bore hole project to proceed. Many thanks to all who have supported this. If congregations have yet to arrange an event or special offering towards this – please consider doing so…
