Omaha Kids Care for Malawi

Greetings,

 

We have come to the end of yet another wonderful year of LifeNets activities.  We thank you once again for your interest and support.  

 

Our success is measured in OUTCOMES of the activities we engage in. When we see people's economic, mental and spiritual plateaus rise, we thank God for the work done in which there has been profit.  

 

The stories in this eNews are quite different. One project, our Developing Nations Scholarship Fund, is our biggest. The other is a relatively small event, but one in which young people in a Nebraska school cared enough to send humanitarian items to the faraway country of Malawi.  Both projects underline the diversity of the people we help and the people who do the helping.   

 

We have been very satisfied that now for 14 years we have a stable and sound base of supporters who have various interests to help with food, water security, education, livelihood, personal contact and missions to reach to the disadvantaged and vulnerable.  

 

You can still make a 2012 tax-exempt donation to LifeNets by going to the home page of ourwww.lifenets.org website and donating there by credit card or PayPal.  Or, you can still postmark a check for 2012 if you act today. 

 

Remember that our address has changed.  Please direct correspondence to

We wish you all the best in the coming year. Thanks for working with us.  

    

Gratefully,

Well, thanks to financial support I received from LifeNet I could continue my studies; as this career is a high cost one, your economic support has motivated me to keep going to reach the goal of carrying it out until I become a skilled physician.I value very much the effort, concern and support you have given me since these difficult times Guatemala's economy is facing, makes it all the more appreciated the help provided. Thank you!  Best regards and blessings.

I thank so much to God in the first place and also to all of you for giving us the opportunity of academic growth and thus, through these scholarships, to have the means to continue our studies; just like many others. I could not afford my studies on my own. I am then committed to work hard and put the acquired knowledge to serving.

 Here are two YouTube videos we made for the ABC Charity Auction on April 29 which raised about $5000 towards our scholarship fund.  The third one was made by John Elliott describing the Dunya Orphans school in Kenya for whom we helped build a school building.

Omaha Kids Care for Malawi
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We received a request from the mother of a young lady, Briana Murphy in Omaha, Nebraska whose school wanted to help some people in Africa with a 25 pound shipment of goods. Since we know of places and people who would be appreciate and benefit from such, we helped arrange the shipping location. The children collected the items and the high school paid the shipping.
