Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me.  (Matthew 18:5 NLT)

What a blessing to welcome 350 children in Christ’s name on our mission to Zambia!

YOUR support through prayers and giving sent us and provided for us. Our desire is to share those blessings with YOU as part of our team.

One of our goals and challenges this year was to allow all 350 children of WISDOM Community School to attend Camp Wisdom. With only 10 workers, we knew that chaos could easily prevail! But the Lord supplied the wisdom and mature workers to provide a meaningful experience for all the kids! Delight sprang from the eyes of all the children.

Walking through the neighborhood surrounding the school, the “National Geographic” scenes always strike us. We have all seen them. Poor children in Africa – barefoot, tattered clothes, and bewilderment in their eyes, walking along the crude dirt roads and emerging from meager homes. 

These aren’t scenes in a magazine. These are real kids with real lives. They follow us on our walk. They touch our white skin. They look into our eyes. They throw joyful smiles and laughter our way. The crowd grows the farther we walk.

Invariably, someone voices the same thought we all have, “I could have been born here.” We become even more thankful for God’s grace.

God gives us the grace of living in the land of prosperity and freedom, not for selfish indulgence, but to give to those who in need. Those children were born into extreme poverty.
They have no control over their circumstances.

Without even sacrificing our comfort and security, most of us can give enough to make a purposeful impact in the lives of these children. 

Please consider giving to the development of the school. WCS needs more buildings, supplies, teachers, and desks. God continues to amaze us with what He has accomplished at WCS in the last three years! His provision is beyond any of our expectations!

The school is starting to look like a real campus! The security wall is complete. The construction team installed ceilings in the newest classroom building. They painted the new classroom building inside and out. And the school now has lights!

Pray for us as we seek Him about the future of WISDOM Community School and as we continue our work here to strengthen marriages.

Thank YOU for YOUR support and care for our mission and us.

Our love in Christ,

Donna and Ed Edwards
P.S. Please pray for the general budget support for LIVING WELL, and the children of WISDOM Community School.

The water that I will give him will become in him 
a well of water springing up to eternal life.
John 4:14b

LIVING WELL is a life source, not a life style.
