Leader: Khetwayo Banda
Movement in Malawi!
God is moving in Malawi! Through the sports movement, many leaders have been trained and outreaches held. New leaders from different parts of the country attended the WSM Africa Gathering in October 2016 triggering a launch of new localised sports ministry teams that are now having a great impact, witnessing lives change aplenty.
Community Sports Teams (CST’s) have been planted and people have been trained in the following areas of Malawi:
Soccer is very popular as a form of outreach – engaging with players that currently play and hosting football tournaments and community coaching to attract locals. Great relationships are built and the love of God is shared. In this past year, more than 7,000 people have been reached. Other strategies include sports camps and kids Games.
Similar to other areas, the challenge is to now mature and multiply the work in this amazing country. There are incredible opportunities to effectively follow-through with individuals that now want to know more of grow in their relationship with Jesus. More Bibles are needed to aid this.
As well as going deeper with those reached, there is scope to widen the reach by partnering with new churches, planting new teams and training new leaders to do the same. As well as Bibles, the teams there require balls and other equipment, to extend soccer and other sport activities to engage with people groups in existing and different parts of the country.
