Masulani was born in the Lilongwe District of Malawi, Africa in 1969. He was born disabled and only has use of his right arm. Due to his disability and the passing of his mother, in grade six, he was unable to continue school. Masulani and his three siblings had to provide for themselves at a very young age, going though many hardships along the way. Later, he married his wife, a mother of two. They went on to have three more children together, sadly two passing as infants. Soon after the birth of their youngest daughter, Masulani started having serious health complications because of his disability. Unable to work, he has struggled to provide for his family.
During an Operation Save mission trip in July of 2022, our team from First Baptist of Locust was introduced to Masulani. When the missionaries heard his testimony, they knew they wanted to help. Upon their return home, they immediately started fundraising and were able to raise $14,000 to build a new home. Operation Save started construction immediately and recently completed the final details. In addition to a new house, there were enough funds to drill a borehole providing clean water to his entire village.
Masulani is at the construction site daily sharing his testimony of what the Lord is doing for him. Through his hardships he put his trust in God and is a great example to his neighbors. We are so blessed to be apart of the Masulani Project and will continue to plant seeds to the individuals in this village.ak`1
June Story "Mission Trip"
We had our June mission trip. We had a group of five from First Baptist Church of Locust located in North Carolina. They had a wonderful greeting at the airport from our Malawian staff full of dancing and singing. The group arrived on Friday and on Saturday they were out at villages getting to work.
The missionaries visited the hospitals and distributed bibles, care packs, dolls, as well as, prayed with the sick. At the hospital visitation 63 people accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. PRAISE GOD! They did hut to hut ministry in different villages in the area while distributing things like bibles, plates, cups, and salvation bracelets to the children. The group helped with our medical and eye clinics giving much needed medical items and glasses to those in need. They washed children's feet, as Jesus did for his disciples, and gave them new shoes.

May Story "The Holts Family"
Our full time missionaries arrived! Devin, Mackenzie and their three children are from Pennsylvania and will be in Malawi until the end of July.

April Story "New Drill Rig"
Our Ministry started by spreading the word of God and providing safe water to the people of Malawi, Africa. We have drilled and repaired countless wells. The water crisis in Malawi affects over 11.7 million people (2 out of 3 Malawians), with 1.7 million lacking access to safe water and 10 million without adequate sanitation. This causes tragic death from waterborne illness to over 3,000 children under 5 per year.
One of our Malawian pastors, Jackson and our Malawian office manager, Rashid traveled to the port of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania to pick up a second drill rig. They left on Sunday, March 20th and arrived back to our compound March 28th. They ran into a few bumps on their trip, but the Lord watched over them and brought them home safe with the new drill rig. Having a second drill rig will give us the resources to provide tens of thousands of Malawians safe water and hear the GOOD word of Jesus Christ.
Our new drill rig broke ground, on the first of many wells, on March 30th, 2022. A drill rig cost approximately $135,000 US dollars so to the organizations and individuals who support our ministry, WE THANK YOU!
