Leadership, Mission and Malawi
“People lose their way without wise leadership, but a nation succeeds when it has many good counsellors to guide it.” (Proverbs 11:14)
For the next three years, AE Malawi is focusing its mission efforts on the city of Zomba, culminating in a city-wide outreach in 2022. With the theme, “Honest Leadership – a key to National Development”, this year’s mission will target societal leaders in this significant city. By hosting events for leaders in the spheres of politics, church, business and academia, AE hopes to bring many leaders to Christ and assist them in serving their nation.
Malawi’s 2020 Vision document states, ““By the year 2020, Malawi, as a God–fearing nation, will be secure, democratically mature, environmentally sustainable, self-reliant with equal opportunities for active participation by all, having social services, vibrant cultural and religious values and a technologically-driven, middle-income economy.”
Sadly in 2020, Malawi remains one of the poorest countries in the world, and high corruption levels are a major barrier to national progress. However, with Malawi’s 2019 election results overturned, and the recent election of a new president, the people of Malawi have declared that they are ready for change. In Zomba, at this pivotal moment in history, AE stands prepared to guide Malawi’s leaders, and ultimately, to make way for the one true King, Jesus Christ.
