Amplifying Hope

Design OutreachNews

An entire community of people was transformed because of a LifePump and the gift of music.

The rural Malawi community of Yesaya Shumba had the ever-present problem of having an unreliable water pump that would either easily break or simply not draw any water during the dry season. The people of Yesaya Shumba would experience days or even weeks without clean water.

Design Outreach immediately responded to the need in Yesaya Shumba and installed a LifePump, bringing them a source of clean, reliable water. This began a beautiful relationship of love and trust that would open the door to sharing the gospel.

During a trip last October, CEO of Design Outreach, Dr. Greg Bixler, witnessed dozens of people coming forward and giving their lives to Christ during a local church outreach event. There was praise music by local musicians and preaching by a pastor from a nearby church.

Bixler was moved by the outpour of the Holy Spirit and the response of the people. He experienced first-hand how open the people were to the gospel and realized that by having the right equipment to reach people, the gospel would be proclaimed and responded to.

So, when Africa Field Director, Dr. Beatrice Chisenga, requested to have a sound system to help local churches and pastors with gospel outreach in LifePump communities – we responded and took a step of faith and purchased a sound system!

We are pleased to report that DO Board Member Chris Lightfoot and his wife Meghann, along with Collaborative Financial Partners stepped forward to be the Presenting Sponsors. While their support has been crucial to this mission, we still need additional gifts to fully cover the costs of the equipment and shipping.

Would you prayerfully consider investing in these gospel tools to help AMPLIFY HOPE in future celebrations?
