Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church global leader Pastor Ted Wilson will lead Big Sabbath prayers at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe today.
Pastor Wilson arrived in the country on Friday accompanied by his wife and other senior international SDA officials as part of his global tour.
He was welcomed by Minister of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare Mary Navicha, Malawi SDA leadership and thousands of Adventists from across the country.
Wilson said on arrival: “My visit will offer an opportunity for me to interact with SDA members in Malawi and we will share notes on a number of issues. It is going to be a fruitful visit.”
The SDA leader then left for an audience with President Peter Mutharika at Kamuzu Palace.
Malawi SDA president Pastor Fracson Kuyama told journalists after Wilson’s arrival that the Big Sabbath prayers today will be attended by congregants from all the regions in the country.
“We have people from the North, South and East meeting those in the Centre. We will have common prayers at Bingu National Stadium and it’s going to be a big service,” he said.
According to the tour programme issued by the SDA Malawi, Wilson and the entourage will visit mission hospitals and perform a number of functions within the three days of his visit.
Wilson has already visited Jordan, Ghana, South Africa and Angola
