Cincinnati East UCG and LifeNets Provide Food Security in Malawi.

Malawi has suffered two dismal agricultural years and we see prices for grain skyrocketing in a few months. The Cincinnati East congregations took up a collection to buy 300 50 kg sacks of maize to help our people through the almost certain famine later in the year. Maize is stored at the LifeNets Business Centre in Lilongwe.

Remarkable Story about Colin Kubik

June 9, 2016

http://lifenets.org/chernobyl/colin2016.html This is truly a heart-warming and remarkable story about my 21-year-old nephew Colin Kubik who has worked for nearly a year at the Revival Centre for disabled children about 30 miles due east of the ill-fated Chernobyl nuclear reactor. LifeNets was formed out of a relationship that first started with our learning about the people who created this center in October 1995, almost a year before it was founded. It’s now 20 years later and what a work for helping children has been done!
