The Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church has said preparations for the visit of SDA Global Leader, Pastor Ted Wilson, to Malawi are at an advanced stage.
Wilson becomes the third SDA Global leader to visit Malawi in recent years.
The last SDA Global head to visit Malawi was Jan Paulsen.
Briefing reporters in Lilongwe, SDA Malawi Union President, Frackson Kuyama, said Wilson is expected to arrive in Malawi on February 7 and he will be in the country up to February 10.
Kuyama said while in the country, Wilson will have an audience with President Peter Mutharika on February 7 before joining the rest of Adventists countrywide at a big Sabbath at Bingu National Stadium, Lilongwe, on February 8.
“We expect church faithful as well as Malawians of goodwill to come and be part of this historic worship service.
“This is a special guest for Malawi so I would like to take this opportunity to invite all Malawians regardless of their religion to join us at Bingu National Stadium on February 8,” Kuyama said.
He added that on February 9, Wilson is expected to visit Malamulo campus and Blantyre Adventist Hospital.
“It is a common knowledge that one cannot visit Malawi without being taken to our beautiful fresh water lake and so, we plan to take our special guest and the entire delegation to the lake for a few hours,” Kuyama said.
Chairperson of the Organising Committee of Wilson’s visit, Dalitso Kabambe, said the church has organised special cloth for the occasion which will be sold at K4,000.
“We would like to invite as many Malawians as possible to come to Bingu Stadium on February and so that we pray together. In particular, we would like to urge Malawians to buy the cloth. We would like to fill Bingu Stadium,” Kabambe said.
