August

· CSI was excited to have a booth at NAYC 2019 in Saint Louis, MO. Over 30,000 young people from around the country together in one place worshipping the one true God was a phenomenal experience. We met so many new people at the booth and got to catch up with so many of our current supporters and volunteers.

· Refugee relief in an area of the world where worshipping Jesus is dangerous and believers live with the very real threat of persecution. Your giving allowed food and mosquito nets to be delivered.

· Hurricane Dorian relief began in the Bahamas. Several churches in Florida served as distribution centers where supplies were selected. Pastor Mark Hattabaugh helped lead teams of volunteers on day trips into the Bahamas to deliver supplies. Your giving allowed dozens of pallets of supplies to be shipped to our contacts on the ground. We had a church that suffered no damage even though many surrounding structures were destroyed. This allowed a safe and dry area to store and distribute supplies.

Malawi Flood 2019

Thank you for being part of our first quarter projects. Your continued prayers and support reach around the world each month.
JANUARY
  • Your generous donations allowed CSI to send an offering to the medical clinic in Liberia. This clinic is a CSI supported project that provides medical care to hundreds of patients each week. The people treated at the clinic would not be able to receive adequate medical care otherwise.
  • 2018 tax letters were mailed out in January. We use the physical address that we have on file, and if no physical address has been provided, then we use the email address that we have on file. If you need to update your information, please contact our office.
FEBRUARY
  • CSI held our annual Compassion Sunday event on February 24th. This day is an opportunity for churches to share the mission of CSI with their congregations and the donations help us be ready to answer the many calls for help that are sure to come throughout the coming year.
  • One of our supporters, Abi Smith, held an exceptional Compassion Sunday event at her church. She attends Christian Life Church in Delaware, Ohio. Her pastor is Michael and Shelley Wilson. Abi was able to do a presentation on Compassion Sunday where she used the downloadable resources and showed the free videos. She held a fundraiser after the service where lunch was served, and donations to CSI were accepted. She had resources available for people to look at and she had focused on the Uganda food program so she made some authentic Ugandan food for people to try. She used her creativity to make some Valentine’s Day invitations to her event.

Malawi Flood Crisis

Malawi Flood 2019

Malawi’s President Peter Mutharika has declared Malawi in a state of emergency.

As of today (March 28th), 13 districts have reported that 59 people have died and 672 have been injured. Malawi has over 200,000 people nationwide that have lost their homes. Flood waters have literally washed everything away.

Hundreds of UPC of Malawi members have lost their homes, along with everything they own. Their crops washed away, they have no food, no clean drinking water, and only the clothes on their back are left.  The loss of crops is devastating on two fronts due to the fact that Malawians use half the crop for food and the other half to sell so that they can purchase other staples. All wells have been contaminated leaving thousands with no clean drinking water.

CSI has been in contact with Missionary Gibbs who gave us the following report:

  • As of today 12 UPC churches have been destroyed and will need to be rebuilt
  • 3 widows have lost their homes and a member of the UPC was in his house when the house collapsed from the flash flood injuring him severely
  • At least 20 pastors so far have lost their homes from the flooding and all their worldly possessions

CSI is dedicated to helping those personally affected and with rebuilding what has been lost. We are working with Missionary Gibbs on specific needs and clear projects. We will keep our supporters updated through social media. Please join us in showing compassion.
