October Appeal

I recently received a letter from Fr. Emmanuel Mambwe, a Missionary of Africa priest who lives and works in Serenje, Zambia, in southern Africa. There, he's working to not only help provide better lives for some of the more than 13,000 people in his parish, but also a better future for their children as well.

“Each year, more than 1,000 acres of trees are being destroyed in Zambia - deforested,” Fr. Emmanuel wrote. “For the most part, trees are being cut down and burned by those who want to create charcoal which they then sell. But there is no reclamation or 'reforestation' occurring."

“Trees are important to the water cycle,” Fr. Emmanuel explained. “They absorb rain fall and produce water vapor that is released into the atmosphere. Trees also lessen the pollution in water by stopping polluted runoff. Without trees, the already tenuous water supply in many of our communities will become even more endangered. That is why the people of Serenje need help!”

September Appeal

"We never know the worth of water till the well is dry."

The above quote is from Thomas Fuller, who lived in 18th century England, where he practiced medicine. Besides being a doctor, Fuller was also a preacher, calling on men and women to see beyond flesh and blood to their true essence as spiritual beings. Because of his experience with both the physical and spiritual sides of humanity, Fuller became most well known for his wisdom - and when he spoke about the nature of who we are, he used water for comparison.

So what Fuller was saying is that we really don't know how valuable we are until we stop being the loving beings God created us to be.

August Appeal

Help Build a Poultry Farm

Quite often, those who remind us of the good that exists in the world are children and young people. Despite their own difficulties, young people like Anne Frank - the Dutch girl who died more than 70 years ago in a concentration camp - help us to see the opportunity for good. "Hunger is not a problem; it is an obscenity," Anne wrote as she and her family went without food. But she continued to still be able to see the good in humanity: “how wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

Your support helps build dormitory for 150 students! Young mother feeds her child with help from the Missionaries of Africa


If your child asks for bread--will you give them a stone?

When our Lord Jesus spoke these words, He was offering His followers a message of hope . . . telling them that God the Father will care for them as we human beings care for our own children. Now -- as I write this letter to you -- I am hoping we will care for our children as well as God intended us to. Please read on and I will try to explain.

A few days ago, I received a letter from Fr. Bill Moroney -- one of our Missionary of Africa priests now working in Nairobi, Kenya, in East Africa. . . Read More>>


Men building well in Tanzania

MOA helps drill water wells in Tanzania

Water can be gathered, or as some would say ‘harvested’, from below by digging or drilling boreholes to pump it up. It can also be harvested from above in those places where the groundwater would be too deep or maybe hardly existing.

Mbeya, in the East African country Tanzania is one of the many places where one often collects it from above, by harvesting the rains of the rainy seasons. Read More>>
