A country about the size of Pennsylvania with the continent's third largest lake, Lake Malawi. It is about the size of Vermont! Malawi is known as "The Warm Heart of Africa". 12.5 million people live in Malawi. We will be stationed in the capitol city of Lilongwe.
The weather in Malawi is tropical; rainy season December to March The lake shore areas have low rainfall, and a warm relaxing climate, with mean daily temperatures ranging from 26C in Jan. to 21C in July. The highland areas have greater temperature changes and the air is bracing. The nights can be cold. The dry season is in the winter between May and October. It rains quite a lot between December and March.
The Assemblies of God have about 2,000 churches in Malawi with the initiative to plant another 2,000 in the next year. There will be a pressing need to train pastors and help with church planting efforts. We look forward to the challenge before us!
