Good news from Malawi! In May, the first teachers completed training for the Adult Literacy Program. These six teachers, two from each of three circuits, will now start teaching adult literacy classes in three villages. Malawi church leaders anticipate completing half of the lessons by the end of the year. At that time, they will evaluate the program and hope to expand the training to other villages. The ability to read and write opens doors. “We thank God for this initiative” said one participant who completed the training.

This program was made possible by your donations to the Christmas Miracle Offering in 2020. Rev. Olav Schmidt, who serves as missionary in Malawi, says “Thank you for your support. Belmont UMC is making a difference here!"
