As we get closer to summer and hopefully some warmer weather here in the UK, we welcome back our team from Malawi who had a fantastic and productive trip.

Back from Malawi
The UK team arrived back at the beginning of May from their trip to Malawi. They were so encouraged by seeing what God is doing among the people in Malawi. They met with school staff, children, pastors, the staff team in Malawi, project managers, villagers, chiefs and many more. Some of the highlights were: - Meeting with the Health Authority to discuss the new Health Outpost - Joining with children in their games - Seeing how the orchard is growing - Staying in Waterfalls centre We would ask for prayer for all the work that now needs to be done following the trip.
We want to thank all those who are going to join us at our sponsored events, Bewl Water Walk, 23rd June, and Bedgebury Family Cycle Ride, 29th September. We would like to encourage you to consider running your own event for Starfish Malawi. It might be a coffee and homemade cakes morning or a Malawi afternoon with music and food but whatever you do, the proceeds will make a difference to the children and communities in Malawi. You could pick a specific project to support or just give for our general needs. Please let us know if you can help by emailing Peter Bell, Head of Fundraising firstname.lastname@example.org
