NEWS FROM MALAWI, AFRICA—Darlene Bechtold, CAMM coordinator, shared the August newsletter from Beth Evans of the Lutheran Mobile Clinic. View the full report on the west bulletin board in the narthex. In part, she said, “It’s the dry season in Malawi and temperatures are gradually warming up, though the early mornings are still cool…The Lord allows this medical mission work in Malawi to continue through many volunteer hours, monetary donations and answered prayers.”
