(Malawi) Jovita's Story

2.13.14 Jovita

Jovita lives in Malawi and is a mother of four children. She was widowed in 2004 when her husband was murdered. Some months after, she developed epilepsy. Once, this caused her to fall unconscious and lose many of her fingers in a fire. The home where she lived was in disepair and unsuitable for her and her family. When World Relief empowered local churches in the area with curriculum for addressing poverty, people became awakened to the needs of their community. Some neighbors realized they needed to serve Jovita, so they came together and built her a new home. How powerful is an empowered church in the lives of the most vulnerable!
