Malawi has the unfortunate distinction of being one of the poorest nations on the planet, with a high rate of AIDS and malaria.
But upon exploration, not only does it not appear to be so, but it is a beautiful land full of beautiful people.
Known as the “Warm Heart of Africa”, these people are ready to welcome an Impact Nations team for the first time.
We have begun a partnership with a well-established ministry known as Word Alive in Blantyre, Malawi. Not only are they raising up leaders and planting churches at a steady pace, they also have a remarkable relief and development program that is bringing transformation to entire communities.
They have asked Impact Nations to come and bring all we have learned to help them further the work they have already begun. We have planned a JOC that will take us into both urban and rural areas, to bring medical clinics, water filters, mosquito nets, food packages, open air meetings and of course salvation and healing.
Praying for the sick and watching God change lives physically and spiritually radically expands our understanding of how the Gospel affects our lives today.
Journeys are a hands on opportunity for you to do “The Stuff”. You will be installing water filters, feeding the poor, praying for the sick, and praying with the people of Malawi.
After a fairly early breakfast, we meet for about 45 minutes of worship, prayer and time in care groups. These groups of 6-7 people are a great way to be encouraged and strengthened throughout the Journey. Then we head out to that day’s community. For about six of the days we will conduct mobile medical clinics.* If you’re not a medical person––no worries, most of us aren’t either. But there are important roles for every member, whether praying for the hundreds of sick who will come, distributing anti-parasite medicine, weighing babies, being a runner or helping in the pharmacy. During the day, small groups go out into the community to pray for people on the streets, organize activities for children, and often just listen and love people. In the evening we go back to the community and hold a celebration where there are songs, testimonies, the Gospel is preached and the sick are healed. You are the one who leads people to Jesus and who prays for the sick. These outdoor gatherings always have a major impact on the community and often lead to new churches and ministries being established.
On days when we don’t conduct clinics, we engage in things like visiting an orphanage or school, preaching and baptizing in prisons, doing a feeding program for children, or simple practical projects. On Sundays, the team breaks into small groups and goes to a number of churches where we will preach, teach the congregation how to heal the sick, and give testimonies. This is always a very special day.
*Please note, not all Journeys include medical clinics. Those that do not will have a greater emphasis on projects and outreach.

The Journey Donation Target covers everything the team needs from the moment they arrive at the moment they depart as they serve and bless the people in the developing world we are committed to ministering to practically and supernaturally. This includes medical clinic expenses, water filters, food distribution and other tangible meetings of physical needs as determined by the journey location and the pressing needs presented. Also included in the donation are the team's needs while on the ground.
Since we come from different countries and backgrounds, and many of us have never met before, each Journey begins with an orientation and training time, usually for two days, where several things happen:
