Calvary Chapel Corona - Skatepark Update

Boarders for Christ is scheduled to install the skatepark at Calvary Chapel Corona next week! This is the first collaborative effort between Boarders for Christ and MAD Skates, and we hope it is only the beginning. By matching funds with Calvary Chapel Corona, MAD Skates assisted in the purchase of the BFC skate park. We are all excited about the way God is going to use this park for the youth in the Corona area.

Food Crisis in Zambia Africa

As many of you know, Jason and I are involved with two missions groups in Zambia, Africa. Today I received the following email from one of our missionary contacts there.

"At this point, the biggest challenge in the feeding program is that it is rainy season and the cost of food and supplies has gone up significantly. It has been raining here every day to the point of roads being washed out. Charcoal has gone from 40,000 kwacha a bag to 100,000 per bag because it is all wet. We are starting to see an increase in fish as well because they can’t get it into the city. Several bridges have been washed out as well.

The National food storage places in the South and East have been flooded and they have lost their reserves. With the rain not letting up, crops have not grown or they have developed fungus and are going to be spoiled. We are worried about there being enough food to go around this coming March, April and May. I am keeping an eye on the newspapers and radio."

This email came as a response to my question of how much more money they needed to feed the kids more than 3 times per week. For many of the children these are the only three meals they receive each week. It seems the crisis has reached a point of just trying to get them fed the three times per week right now.

I won't take any more of your time, but if you are interested in helping out, please send funds to Action International (mark Zambia Feeding on the memo line) or simply say a prayer for the flooding and food crisis in Zambia.
