As Malawi Assemblies of God Church has clocked 70 years in the country, First Lady Gertrude Mutharika has hailed the role that the church is playing in various sectors with the aim of supporting the country.
Speaking during a dinner the church held in in Lilongwe, Madam Mutharika said the church is a reliable partner of the country in various sectors like education, water and sanitation.
“Through its education facilities, the Malawi Assemblies of God is complementing government’s efforts in educating the nation. For example, the Malawi Assemblies of God University (MAGU) is one of the universities that are providing students with access to higher education,” Malawi’s first lady said.
She further highlighted how the church is significantly helping in water and sanitation angles through its arm, Assemblies of God Care (AGC).
“I hereby wish to commend and congratulate the church for being an important partner for the social economic progress of our nation.
“It is against this background that I urge all of us to celebrate the existence of the Malawi Assemblies of God Church in the country,” she added.
The church has since vowed that through its calling it will produce productive people who are ready to help in both government and non-governmental organisations with the common aim of developing the country.
