Story number 2 for 20 Jan 2003

(Malawi)–Next, an electrical fire in Malawi has seriously affected the work of Teen Missions International. Teen Mission’s Steve Peterson says the fire hit January 3rd, destroying the warehouse where all of the Boot Camp supplies were stored. Peterson says this is a big loss. “One of the difficulties is that a lot of the equipment that the teams use is not readily available in Malawi or in many of the other African countries. So, it’s not just the financial aspect. It’s difficult and time consuming for us, over the years, to have built up that and now to suddenly need that for next year’s camps. It’s going to be difficult.” Peterson believes the fire is a spiritual attack because they had just completed a successful camp. “They had just completed running a missions training for Malawian teenagers. Six teams, 111 kids were there. They just seen over 1,400 people accept Christ. 75 of those kids made decisions to enter full time service.” Funding and short-term mission teams are needed to help replace the 10-thousand dollar loss.
