Today I find myself in New York City. I am here working with, a wonderful organization that focuses on providing clean drinking water to women, children and communities! It is something to be celebrated. Tonight the event is being held at the ever famous 69th Regiment Armory, with a complete Water Walk were people attempt to carry two jerrycans filled with water on a runway; there will be exhibits with great lighting (light fixtures done by yours truly.) and so much more.

The reason I find myself in New York, supporting such a cause for this event, is the dire need for WATER. Water is a scarcity in many places including Malawi. Many of the programs I will visit host kids and youth who walk for miles before school collecting water for the families’ daily needs. Its Water. How many times in 1 day to you come into contact with it? For me it’s often.

Everyday I am in contact with water, whether a shower or a glass of water…It would be safe to say most Americans have that option. We can all be a little more aware, and all a little less wasteful. Say I pray for those without a water supply. Click here and select Malawi Initiatives and type in MollytoMalawi to give a financial tax-deductible gift towards education. I will be tutoring and teaching English, teaching about basic needs, Water included!

Remember those without Water, and remember you can be a part of the change, by bringing more water to more people.


Woah, It is starting to feel real


Yesterday I was calling South African Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines…trying to book a flight! Woah, God is making this process very clear. I am supposed to get to Malawi. Of course I have not booked the flight quite yet, but I am shooting for January 2012. It is starting to feel real. Oh yes! And I booked an appointment to get my travel shots & my Malaria Meds prescribed.  YUP! It is real when you are traveling overseas.

It will be are great journey, I know that for sure…..

I am eager to get there, but there is still so much I am not quite ready for.


I am so excited to start this blog! Of course I have been saying and have been told that I should have started a blog to help draw attention toward my trip, but hey, better late than never! So, I am hoping to go back to Malawi Africa, for a 6 month period.  I will be working with youth programs started by College Graduates from Malawi.

In order to cover my flight, meds/shots, travel insurance, cost of living, and other fees while I am traveling, I have put on fundraisers, worked odd jobs, prayed and asked friends and family for support. Since September, I have raised $3,324. I have about $4,000 left. My goal to leave is January & thankfully God is guiding me in this day by day.

I'll be teaching English -- empowering souls, I hope
