The five new theology graduates and their wifes

We want to congratulate our sister church in Malawi, the CCAP Nkhoma on the five new theological students who graduated on Saturday 23 May at the Josophat Mwale Theological Institute (JMTI). They are Gerald Chinkoka, Yohane Kamwendo, Peter Mawonde, Ackim Mgundadzuwa and Tarrent Mwanza and will be placed in congregations on Friday 29 May. “We believe they will be good pastors,” says the General Secretary, Rev. Vasco Kachipapa.

“The CCAP Nkhoma Synod has 41 vacant congregations and these new graduates will be a drop in the ocean. We would have loved to graduate at least ten people,” says Rev. Kachipapa. “The other challenge is the impact of COVID-19.”

We praise the Lord for these devoted couples to serve in these challenging times.

They are also very grateful for an official handover ceremony, at the same event, of a house constructed by the family of counsel Likongwe, the Synod’s legal advisor, and his wife. This is actually a house with two semidetached houses that provides enough space to accommodate two families of JMTI students.
