Africa Outreach is a yearly evangelistic summer mission to Malawi led by Pastor Kurt Dahlin.
We partner with the vision of the National Foursquare Leadership to strengthen, encourage
and grow the rural churches. Visiting sites where fresh water wells have recently been
drilled, we utilize creative arts and the Jesus film to make the love of Jesus known to as
many as possible. Last year our teams were able to minister in 13 villages to over 7,000 people.
In 2014 we want to spend a week doing a Vacation Bible School for tons of kids that live near the Blantyre Foursquare Church. We will also minister to women, children, and host first aid and Homemade Hygiene clinics featuring the use of local resources to prevent and treat deadly diarrhea.
We are just finishing up a very productive mission to Malawi, Africa. Thank you for your prayers and support. We were able to reach over 6,000 people with the gospel. I also visited so many water wells WWFA has installed over the past 16 years. I was so happy to find them all working and to discover that the clean water has completely eliminated cholera and water borne diseases. I was able to finally visit the first borehole installed in Nchiwa Village 16 years ago. I was overjoyed to find it still providing clean water after so much time.
