Malawi Partnership Update The Rev. Asayiwe Mwenitete, minister of Limphasa Congregation in Northern Malawi, has sent the following message: Afternoon Bill, With great joy I am informing you that our Church has been today Monday 18/01/21 connected with electricity. We thank God for your assistance of money which you gave us for this connection. Now is light in the Church. Share this great news to our brothers and sisters there in Scotland. God bless you all. Asayiwe As we entered 2021 Asayiwe sent greetings as follows: May you start this journey of 2021 year with our Lord Jesus Christ, let him guide, lead, protect and take us to next year 2022. It was interesting to learn that his congregation had held a special celebratory ‘End and the Beginning of the Year’ church service on Saturday 2nd January. The accompanying video clip highlighted the great joy of the occasion with typical enthusiastic all age dancing and singing. In light of the latest government restrictions on travel to and from the UK there is clearly no realistic prospect of a return to anything approaching normality by early summer and accordingly the planned visitation to Malawi by a group of six on behalf of Ayr Presbytery has again had to be postponed. This visit had originally been scheduled to take place at the end of May 2020 and was then postponed for a year. It is hoped that the situation both here and in Malawi will greatly improve in the months ahead to enable fresh plans for this delayed visit to be put in place. In a follow up message from Rev. Asayiwe received this afternoon he ‘sends best wishes as you will be having another Zoom meeting of the kirk session on 21/01/21. Let's keep remembering each other in our day to day prayers’. BACK
