Gogo is another term for grandparent in Malawi and so it is fitting that we often refer to Grace of God Orphanage as GOGO. Ruth’s Shawl began a relationship with GOGO in 2013 after two of our translators took over as directors of the orphanage. In 2018, the country of Malawi mandated all orphanages to adopt a “foster care” type model, and so GOGO has placed all the children back to their home villages and now has an after school program for the children who live near the GOGO facility. Therefore, Ruth’s Shawl no longer ministers at the orphanage, but continues to pray for the children of Malawi.
Please pray for protection and provision for the dear children that GOGO serves in the surrounding villages and that they will grow in the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
