A large crowd turned up to hear the message of hope and unity delivered by international evangelist Andrew Palau at the Love Malawi Festival in Lilongwe.

The event that took place on Saturday 20 August and Sunday 21 August marked the conclusion of the festival which began in early August with activities in Ntcheu, Mzuzu, Blantyre, Zomba and Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Dowa.

On Saturday and Sunday Evangelist Palau delivered a message of hope and unity and encouraged people to give their lives to Jesus Christ.

He led people in praying for the city and the success of the nation and spoke about the importance of this by quoting scriptures in the book of Jeremiah 29 verse 7 which reads: “Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because of it prospers, you too will prosper.”

In the evening of each day, the renowned Gospel singer, Don Moen performed live in front of thousands of Malawians who waited for so long to see him in the country.

The Worship Praise and Leader thrilled the crowd with his famous songs including God Will Make A Way and God Is Good.

Other music performance were done by Dave Lubben, Great Angels Choir, Kamuzu Barracks Gospel Singers, KBG, Faith Mussa, Suffix, and Love Malawi Choir.

The festival also involved a high energy children’s program with Duggie Dug from England as well as action sports demos from FMX and BMX stunt team Action Sports Outreach.

In his remarks after the festival, Reverend Francis Mkandawire, General Secretary of the Evangelical Association of Malawi said the event has acted as a stepping stone, where local churches have learnt that in unity they can achieve greater things.

Reverend Mkandawire added that the festival has reshaped the Christian way of life among Malawians who witnessed the event, saying they are now able to relate God with other things such as extreme sports and world class music. The general secretary has since assured Malawians that such festivals will be held regularly at local level.

    I didn’t want to say anything but let me say this to my brother called Dereck Jassi… Amwene a Jassi, mukuyenera kulapa kwa Mulungu pazimene mwayankhulazo. Ngati mmagwiritsidwa ntchito ndi ziwanda choonde pitani kwa M’busa aliyense otumikila Mulungu mu Mzimu ndi mchoonadi akuthandizeni mu masuridwe. Nkhani ya kuchuka ndi uthenga wachipulumutso sidzikugwiridzana.. Otherwise, you are provoking God’s wrath on you and He will deal with you for the sake of His children. I have advised you out of love.

  • Kwawoko ndi munthu osatchuka ndiye akufuna atchukile kuno anya awona kuno kulibe parau

  • The problem of Malawi politicians is to wait for the foreigner to tell the citizens about hope and unity. Malawi is a beautiful country, the Warm Heart of Africa. Is a paradise. A country which has never experienced civil war. Unite and make Malawi a better place for its citizens and can experience heaven on earth. God bless Malawi.
