The Christian Writer’s Market Guide
Our church, St. Philip Lutheran, has a sister parish in Malawi, Africa, where we support a feeding center for children. We have met Mphatso Thole, a gentleman who works in the Malawi Lutheran Synod organization and has visited us here. He has shared my book over there and is wanting to know if I could tell my contacts about this book - good for anyone who might be interested in learning a little about this country and particularly the beauty and challenges of village life for a child.
