About Overton Nyaka
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105
Growing up in Chinsapo, Malawi is not always easy, but even as a young man, Overton Nyaka knows that the word of God will show him which direction to go in his life. Right now he knows that means attending highschool, church, playing soccer with the Chisomo Idea team and helping his family. His father works as a plumber and his mother selling tomatoes to care for the 6 children in their family. He is able to eat 3 meals a day consisting of mostly n'sima and beans. In school his favorite subject is math and he aspires to be a journalist some day. He is thankful for the presence of the Chisomo Idea in Chinsapo as this allows him to do his favorite activity- play football. He knows that he has valuable support in his mentors with the team that help meet his physical, spiritual, intellectual and social needs.
