Book Sales Donation To Tearfund
Posted at 17:07pm on 13th April 2012
Thank you, again, to all who have bought my book, A Painful Post Mortem. A novel about a mother who has to come to terms with her daughter's waywardness, it raises, among other things, the question of HIV and AIDS.
Sales have already raised hundreds of pounds for Tearfund and Care for the Family, and helped to improve the lives of children around the world who, one way or another, are the victims of HIV and AIDS.
Here is a thank-you letter from Tearfund for the most recent donation, made from sales at the ACW Writers' Day in Bromley. I hope you will find it as moving as I do.
Please tell your friends that A Painful Post Mortem is now available as an e-book for digital download. You don't even need to own a Kindle or Nook, there are free apps for PC's, iPads, iPhones etc.
Thank you, on behalf of those who are benefiting, for your recent gift of £50. You donation will help our church-based partners to bring material and spiritual transformation to the lives of men, women and children in some of the countries most affected by HIV and AIDS.
Your gift will help women like Eliza Moyo, a 35-year old widow in Mzimba District, in the Northern Region of Malawi. Eliza is HIV positive and is a mother of four children. Amid all the pain, stigma and suffering associated with HIV and AIDS, Eliza has found help, hope, acceptance and friendship from a local church in her area. She has lived a life of rejection and pain since her condition became known in her community. The local church, Edingeni Living Waters Church, mobilised by Tearfund partner Eagles, has become a friend to her. Ever since the church came to know abo9ut her condition, it has been helping her with her farming to enable her to produce enough food to support herself and her children.
Pastor Mienga from the church has been providing counselling for Eliza, and she has regained hope. Eliza's health has tremendously improved and she is now a member of the local church, where she has found acceptance and support. She is actively involved ans even been elected into a leadership position.
Thank you again for your generosity, which will help to change more lives like Eliza's, across the world.
Yours in Christ
