The Church in Malawi with the Malawi Reformation Network

The Church in South Asia with a URC Missionary
What does it take to move to the other end of the world, where you need to sleep with bug nets at night, where heat and humidity leaves you constantly soaked in sweat, where the jungle-like forest meets urban life, and where there are only a handful of Christians and churches? We are excited to welcome back one of our missionaries as we hear about the struggles and blessings of missionary life in a closed country.
