Eagles in Malawi Update

Our Tear Fund link church in Malawi, Eagles, have passed us the following prayer pointers. Please remember them in your prayers as drought continues to cause problems in Malawi.

The countdown to Christmas has begun: decorations are going up, advent calendars are being opened, carol services are beginning and you have a special Christmas greeting from Eagles!

Advent is a season of anticipation, of holy waiting for Jesus, the Light of the World, to be born. Eagles have been working tirelessly this year to bring this light to some of the darkest places on Earth. Join with us in celebration of Eagles’ work by sharing one of our favourite stories from 2016 with your church.

The food situation in Malawi remains critical. Earlier this year, Tash Creaney from 24/7 Prayer visited Eagles' work in Chikwawa with Kiera and Hannah from Tearfund’s Youth team. The harsh reality of life for the people they met angered and saddened them. Click here to watch and read their reflections during the visit and please continue to pray for Malawi at this time.

And finally, may we wish you a happy, joy-filled Christmas, and a brilliant new year.

Many blessings,

Catherine, Bobbie, Derek, Fiona, Megan, Nathaniel, Diana, and Carina

Pray for Eagles in Malawi

  • Pray for all those affected by failed harvests and food shortages. Thank God that some households have received emergency food supplies through the World Food Programme. Pray as Eagles and Tearfund speak up for these communities and ask for more support for those most in need.
  • Pray for reliable and adequate rainfall throughout the rainy season, for crops to grow well, and for successful harvests.
  • Despite being hit by consecutive disaster and challenges, pray that people will not lose hope and that God will give them strength to persevere.
