In 2007, Warren partnered with Children's HopeChest to oversee the coordination of sponsorship for two carepoints in Swaziland Africa, Ntabamhloshana (Ruby's) and Timbutini. Currently, Ntabamhloshana (Ruby's) has 139 profiled children and Timbutini has 148 profiled children. A child is eligible for profile after four consecutive months of attendance at the carepoints where they participate in the feeding program and Bible study/instruction. No child, regardless of eligibility, is ever turned away from being fed, nutritionally, emotionally and spiritually.
Who manages the mission work on the ground?
There are three full-time missionary couples and ten disciplers that oversee a total of 5000 children and more than 30 carepoints across Swaziland. Currently two teams per year from Warren go to Swaziland on mission. Each trip has a different focus, but we always assist with ministering to the needs of the children, missionaries, disciplers, and the people of Swaziland. This is a hands on ministry, and we develop life long relationships with these wonderful adults and children through our visits and a letter writing ministry.
What can you do to help?

Hello everyone- Yesterday morning during our devo time as we studied Matthew 7:7-11, We discussed how we need to be intentional in prayer asking the Lord for opportunities to share Him with those around us.
