Update on Project Canaan

4017286377_3774fa4cf6_oProject Canaan, Heart for Africa’s land development project in Swaziland, is moving along at a rapid pace.  Many of you may have visited the land during your mission trip to Swaziland this past year.  Things have definitely changed since then. The farm manager’s building is almost complete and staff has started moving in. Kaleli Mulli from Kenya, the farm manager, has moved into his new home along with four workers living in the dorm.

Over the past few weeks, the first 30 acres of land has been cleared and planting will begin very soon. We are excited about this first planting season at Project Canaan and grateful to all of you that donated to “The First Harvest” campaign to make it happen.

Celebrate Litsemba!

Celebrate LitsembaSummer 2010 is the summer of Litsemba with Heart for Africa.  Litsemba, hope in SiSwati, will be the central focus of all of our summer trips to Swaziland.  But Litsemba has already started.  From churches and individuals collecting blankets to beanies being knitted all over the world, Litsemba is now.

This journey of Litsemba begins here in North America and it continues on July 23, 2010 at the Somholo National Stadium in Swaziland. On this day, 15,000 orphaned and vulnerable children from Swaziland will join together for a day of praise and worship. A day that will begin a journey of Litsemba as they learn of the love of their Heavenly Father and the love of the Christian community where they live. A love that says “We are going to make sure you have food to eat. We are going to make sure that you have water to drink. We are going to make sure you have a roof over your head and clothes to wear. We are going to make sure that we are fulfilling the call of James 1:27 to look after you, our children.”

Read more about Litsemba and make your plans to join a Litsemba mission team in the summer of 2010.

A Special Gift for your Sponsored Child

IMG_2739Do you sponsor a child through Heart for Africa?  If so, this is a special opportunity just for you.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support of Heart for Africa and the children we assist in caring for.  We know how difficult it can be to prioritize expenses during this tough economy.  But you have continued to make your sponsorship a top priority and we are grateful to you for your continued support of those who have so little.

Heart for Africa would like to provide a pair of pajamas to each of the children at our sponsored homes for Christmas this year.  We know that the children will love this tradition and the homes will know that the children will receive them each year as our gift to them.

If you would like to participate by giving your sponsored child a pair of pajamas there are two ways that you can participate.

  1. Purchase the pajamas and send them wrapped or unwrapped with a gift card to the Heart for Africa office in Georgia – NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 30TH, 2009.  Please make your best guess regarding the size based on your personal knowledge of the child and the child’s age.  If you choose this option, please send an email to childsponsorship@heartforafrica.org with the name and home of your sponsored child.
  2. Make a donation online of $20 or more and Heart for Africa will purchase pajamas for your child and the many children who do not have a sponsor.  Click here to donate.

Thank you for sharing God’s love this Christmas!
