In Piscataway, New Jersey, retired psychologist, Dr. Barbara Wall held the second annual LifeNets Ladies Charity Tea. The obejct of support was the rural Malawi orphans. LifeNets has a specific program of helping 200 orphans under age five in the town of Balaka with food, medicine and instruction for their guaridians.
The event on Sunday was as wonderful as last year's that you can see on our LifeNets Website at http://lifenets.org/tea/
Dr. Barbara Walls went to great lengths to prepare a brochure and a program. Information in it came largely from Christina Davis who stayed in Malawi for two months in January/February of this past year. She is a student at Seattle University who did research for her Ingternational Marketing class and LifeNets. Dr. Wall featured some of the personal stories of our Malawi orphans. Very well done!
The program began with our signature song "Ordinary People" sung by Ron Forbes and an opening prayer by Norris Hobbins. The Master of Ceremonies was Dave Johnson. Barbara Walls welcomed and thanked the guests.
I had to leave at 5 PM for my flight to Europe and this trip, so all this is a whirlwind for me. A driver provided by Barbara Walls took me to the Newark airport and I got on the absolutely full Lufthansa flight for Munich with a connection to Copenhagen.
The trip is off the ground! I'm by myself....Bev went only as far as New Jersey. Stay tuned.
