SWAZILAND CARE POINT
Emmanuel began partnering in 2018 with the community of eNhlanhleni in Swaziland to support a ministry known as a care point. At the care point, approximately 200 children are fed a solid meal each day, are discipled to know Jesus and provided with basic medical care. Swaziland has the world’s highest rate of HIV/Aids infection and many of these children are orphans cared for by grandparents or other family members who are often overwhelmed with the financial burden. eNhlanhleni is in one of the poorest regions of Swaziland yet its people are working hard in this partnership, cooking the food, collecting the firewood and building a shelter for the cooking and a fence to protect the children.
As our partnership with that community develops, we are encouraged to send a team to visit the people of eNlanhleni and, at some point, may have the opportunity to help them with development projects to increase their sustainability.

Information on Proposed Trip to visit our care point in Eswatini, May 24 to June 3, 2024.
The mission (AIM) that we work with encourages partner churches to send teams to build relationships with the people of their partner CarePoint community. They have learned from experience that churches that are able to send teams to visit their care points build much stronger and more effective partnerships. The people in the eNhlanhleni community (leaders, volunteer cooks (grandmothers), children and staff members) love having visitors and are greatly encouraged by them! We will have an opportunity to get to know the people, share fellowship with them and view the projects that we have partnered with them in building. I hope to be able to discuss future projects with them as well. We have been blessed that Peter & Gill and Dan, Julie & family have visited our eNhlanhleni CarePoint but it would be good if more of us were able to meet the people there, and continue to build our relationship with that community. So, we would like to ask people to think, and pray, whether or not God might be leading them to join the team. Date: May 24 - June 3, 2024 (add a day on each side for travel) . Cost: We don't know the total cost at this point but it will be reasonably high because of the air fare to South Africa and costs for 10 days of accomodation, van & driver, guide and interpreter and meals. (It would be good for team members to pay for, or raise, as much of the cost themselves as possible. However, we are committed to helping people financially who feel called but aren't able to come up with the full cost.) Because this would be a sanctioned missions trip of the church, donations are receiptable. Please let me know if you are interested. See our lates Eswatini Mission Trip FAQ here.
