Due to Covid and Tina’s personal situation the Malawi trip was on the back burner for a while. However, she believes that the time is right to lead a team on a return to an African nation.  All who are interested are invited to send an application found on the website or email Tina – if you would like to join a team and learn more about the transformative power of God on a short-term mission trip.  The core team has a meeting scheduled for January 24th to discuss potential travel dates. 

Here’s some information about Malawi. 

The Great Rift Valley and the massive Lake Malawi divide the mountainous terrain of the landlocked nation of Malawi in southeast Africa. The southern part of the lake is in Lake Malawi National Park, which is home to a variety of animals, including baboons and colourful fish, and whose crystal-clear waters are a popular destination for boaters and scuba divers. The beach resorts of Peninsular Cape Maclear are well-known. 

With a Human Development Index ranking of 174 out of 189 nations, Malawi is among the world’s poorest nations. A quarter of the population is severely poor, and more than half of the population lives in poverty. Many Malawians, particularly those living in rural areas, still face substantial obstacles when it comes to accessing clean water, sanitation, and healthcare.

Because of the high reliance on agriculture by the population, the economy is particularly susceptible to the effects of climate change and natural disasters. An already vulnerable population has seen their poverty rates rise because of the COVID-19 pandemic’s substantial influence on economic growth, 70% of the population subsisting on $2.15 per day.
