Often in the communities where World Vision works, blessings abound.
Two weeks ago, our writer Kari Costanza discovered a new blessing: Mercy, a young mother in Zambia whose village believed her possessed because she had malaria so often, her 7 year old son Steven, and their whole village no longer get malaria!
Kari also discovered that the American couple that sponsors Steven are her friends! And the greatest gift to Mercy and Steven. Read their story!
I’ll be honest. One of the reasons I love reporting stories in the field for World Vision is that I see God at work. The work is challenging and often heartbreaking, but along the way, blessings abound.
It happened today.
World Vision photographer Jon Warren and I were reporting a story on malaria in Hamaundu, Zambia, interviewing Mercy Mumbala, 27, a mother of five. Malaria did more than nearly kill her. It made her the town freak show.
