Malawi Charity Trip Report

June 30, 2010

TO: all

BRIEF REPORT OF OUR MISSION TRIP TO MALAWI

On Sunday the 9th of May 2010 Rev. Dr. Mercy Wood and I left the UK for Malawi. We went to Malawi to do a number of things. These included the following:

  1. To take possession of the $325,000.00 property that our sister Ministry, Acts 3 were due to hand over to our charity – the Wood World Missions
  2. To graduate 12 of our Wood World Missions Vocational Training School students in the North of Malawi who were graduating in the field of Carpentry
  3. To take possession of almost 5 football pitches worth of Land that the chief of Mataponi village had donated to Acts 3 which they were in turn donating to us
  4. To formally open the 27th and 28th Branch Churches in Malawi – in Mataponi and Blantyre respectively
  5. To sort out the arrangements for the smooth handing over of all of Acts 3 projects in the South of Malawi to Wood World Missions
  6. To ensure that we have a coordinator appointed in the South of Malawi to assist Rev. Dr. Mercy and I with the organising and supervising of our mission work in the South of Malawi and
  7. To formally open two more orphanage Centres in the north of Malawi

Brethren in Christ, I am pleased to report that whilst we were in Malawi we were able to achieve all the above objectives that the lord had set for us. We were also able by the grace of God to do the following:

  1. Preach the word of God in a number of Churches in Malawi
  2. Host a conference for all our branch pastors in the North of Malawi. We met them in Rumphi and empowered them with the Word of God. We also prayed for all of them
  3. Visit the orphans with some shopping
  4. Visit the widows with some shopping
  5. Have meetings with our coordinator in the north of Malawi
  6. Increase the allowances of our faithful volunteers in the North of Malawi

The Mission trip to Malawi was so successful that the enemy wanted to end the lives of both Rev. Dr. Mercy Wood and I. As I put it at the time, the enemy wanted two for the price of one.

On our return from the North of Malawi on Saturday the 15th of May 2010 we had a motoring accident. According to the police reports our driver was trying to overtake another vehicle but was unable to complete the overtaking and an accident resulted. Rev. Dr. Mercy Wood sustained injuries to her lips and a fracture to her pelvis and hip. She was also bleeding through her nose. I sustained injuries to my back and chest including an injury to my knee.

After the accident Rev. Dr. Mercy passed out. It took prayer, the grace of God and me constantly talking to her to for her to come back to life after an hour. I am truly glad that I was with her on this particular mission trip. I am grateful to God for sparing the life of my wife, friend and partner in Mission.

After the accident I called Randy of Acts 3 in Blantyre to arrange for another car to come and get us from the nearby Local hospital that we had managed to get a lift to. Rev. Dr. Mercy had her lips stitched in the local hospital and we eventually arrived in Blantyre on Sunday the 16th of May 2010 at around 2am.

We had a 2 preaching engagements on that Sunday that by the grace of God I was able to honour despite the fact that I was in pain.

To cut matters short, Rev. Dr. Mercy and I successfully landed at Heathrow Airport on Thursday the 20th of May 2010. We were taken straight to St. Helier Hospital where a number of tests and x-rays were carried out on both Mercy and I. It was confirmed that Rev. Dr. Mercy had a fractured pelvis and needed to be operated on.

I am glad to say that on Sunday the 23rd of May 2010 Rev. Dr. Mercy was transferred to St. Georges Hospital and was operated on Monday the 24th of May 2010. She was in Hospital for almost 3 weeks and was discharged. By the grace of God she is recovering well at Home.

I will like to thank the Lord for delivering us from death.

I have started to write a book in which I am setting out the full details of our mission trip to Malawi. It will be entitled “ DIVINE DELIVERANCE”. Look out for your copy. It is likely to be out in September 2010 – during the 10th anniversary celebration of our Ministry. All proceeds from that book will be going towards our Mission projects in Africa.

I will also like to thank all those who in prayer and in other ways have been there for my wife and I in our moment of need. May the Lord bless you.

We are fully committed to the work that the Lord has committed into our hands in Malwai. We know that the Lord will never allow our lives to be cut short before our time. We thank him for delivering us divinely on this occassion.
