From Malawi

Mission Team 2018

In June, this group will help with the feeding program, teach Bible lessons, and replace the thatched roofs of widow’s houses with metal roofs. Two members of the team will arrive in Malawi in late May to prepare for the team’s arrival and network with other organizations.


The rest of the team will arrive in early June. Teenagers from the orphan project will work with the team to lead the Bible lessons.


Early each day the team will work with a local contractor to replace the thatched roofs of widows houses with metal roofs.


Later in the day, the team will help with the feeding program and present the Bible lessons.




Please pray for safety for everyone and for God’s will to be done. Please pray for Rob, Chris, Mitchell, Egypt, Hannah, Joy, and Pastor Andy during their time in Malawi.

Malawi is an extremely poor country of 15 million people. There are at least 1 million orphans in Malawi due primarily to HIV/AIDS and malaria. The physical growth of at least 50% of the children under the age of 5 has been stunted because of chronic malnutrition. It is estimated that 55% to 74% of its population live in extreme poverty. This is why Liwiro la Malawi (We run for Malawi).
