ISSUE 02/10

mmabana mother of children Dear Readers, This year, 2010, the world joins in with the African joie de vivre. No, I am not only talking about the world cup in South Africa. Choma Zambia has too been a humble spot of international encounters. The MCOP has warmly welcomed a few German visitors. The office has moved to new grounds and has become a centre offering the community a broader horizon. On Workers’ Day Choma joined in on the celebrations with the rest of the world and in Germany the “Friends of Mmabana Foundation e.V.” (FMF e.V.) took action for the first time, raising funds on a flea market. We would like to encourage you to take part of this African experience, take a look at this term’s articles and share them with the world! May we remember that in Christ, we are one body, despite our diversity and geographical distances. “Always keep yourselves united in the Holy Spirit, and bind yourselves together in peace.” - Ephesians 4:3 Wishing you God’s blessings for the coming term, Pierre-Yves Dalka and Natalie Zaiss Editor Team Freunde der Mmabana Foundation e.V.
