Wherever we go, and whatever we do, let us live with this remembrance in our hearts…THAT WE ARE FAMILY. What we give to one another comes full circle. May we always be the best of friends; May we always be one another’s rainbow on a cloudy day; As we have been yesterday and today to each other, may we be so blessed in all of our tomorrows…Over and over again…For we are family, and that means that love has no end. -C. McCarthy

It is the close to a very busy day in Malungeni. Today was a day to celebrate the 18 year family relationship that AIAIA and Malungeni have been able to build.

This year, I made the decision to return some of the earlier photos that I had taken over the years. The gentleman holding the photo was extremely happy to receive a photo of his mother that had died a number of years ago. This is the only photo that the son has had of his mother.

Members of the delegation served a hot meal to members of the community and the 235 food parcels were distributed to the community. Children played and adults danced and those most in need of food assistance were able to return to their homes feeling more secure that there would be food available for their families.

Once again, I thank you for your prayers and financial support for the ongoing work of Arm In Arm In Africa. Your presence was felt at today’s family reunion.

Baha’i Prayer for Peace…

Be generous in prosperity And thankful in adversity.

Be fair in judgement, And guarded in your speech.

Be a lamp unto those in darkness,  And a home to the stranger.

Be the eyes to the blind

And a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be a breath of life to the body of humankind,

a dew to the soil of the human heart,

And a fruit upon the tree of humility….

You must be tired but happy with all you have done these past few days. You’ve nourished people with what they need: food, joy, and love.


I am with you in spirit! I can feel your love bursting forth as you are with our Malungeni family — it’s reflected on their faces!

Much love,
