Lilongwe West CIFA Group continues to champion holistic transformation

Four years later, we can see the fruit of the seeds of holistic transformation among the 11 pastor leaders of Lilongwe West CIFA group. Today, we share key indicators of what the Whole Gospel, affecting the pastors’ heads, hearts, hands and heels has achieved so far, as they take their leadership positions to champion holistic transformation in their community. The pastor leaders have demonstrated commitment, ownership and responsibility in implementing holistic programs! They have led 5 church planting initiatives with 15 youth whom they trained on evangelism in 2019; they continue to mentor 1481 children in their 16 nursery schools.

They have 32 students in a secondary school which happens to be a model school in the district; organized their 580 members collectively into 39 shalom groups impacting their households on a weekly basis through Bible study, prayer and fellowship; trained 40 youth this year (2020) in skills to generate an income and move away from a hopeless and meaningless lifestyle; trained 40 members from 10 out of the 39 shalom groups on vegetable farming and allocated 1 hectare of land to them for planting, consuming and selling the surplus.
The group raised MK6,118.808 to develop their farming project, and they took a loan from PA of MK4,500,000 ($5,625) which they will pay back within 36 months. They are currently preparing their land for planting season!
