[Malawi] The First Lady of the Republic of Malawi, Professor Gertrude Mutharika, accepted an invitation to join a prayer meeting observing the International Women's Day of Prayer 2019. The appearance of the First Lady generated much excitement for more than 6,000 women of Lilongwe who gathered on the grounds of the Lilongwe Central Seventh-day Adventist Church to participate.
Women from all walks of life, including women in the government of Malawi who were also invited, assembled for the March 2 program, "Walking with Jesus." They prayed and praised God together in unity. Even their colorful attire was uniform.
Emily Egolet, women's ministries director of Malawi Union Conference, organized this successful day of prayer which is on the annual worldwide church calendar for the first Sabbath of March.
