Malawi is one of the smallest nations in the world. It is located in southeast Africa and ranks 173 out of 188 countries on the United Nations Human Development Index because of poverty, high infant mortality, and low life expectancy (mostly due to the African HIV-AIDS crisis). The country is land-locked; it share a border with Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique. The majority of the economy is based on agriculture.
Despite all the problems the nation faces, Malawi is nicknamed “the Warm Heart of Africa.” The people are kind, willing to accept travelers, and the nation has never experienced a civil war between ethnic groups.
The ministry of Luis Palau will be doing mass evangelistic events in Mazuzu, Ntcheu, Blantyre, Zomba, the Dzaleka Refugee Camp, and the capital of Lilongwe. These six campaigns will include events for children, women, business and civic leaders, and large evangelistic outreaches. Our ministry was invited by the Next Generation Alliance, a ministry of evangelist Luis Palau, to participate in this nation-wide outreach to Malawi.
I was invited to preach at the Love Malawi Festival in the city of Mzuzu. The city is about a five-hour drive from the capital of Malawi and the population in this area is 175,000 precious people. Mzuzu is the capital of Malawi’s northern region and the Mzuzu University attracts students from across the nation.
