Pray for Our World: Malawi

Malawi is in Central Africa next to Tanzania and Mozambique.  It is a densely populated country with little development, cycles of drought and heavy rainfall, and widespread AIDS.  They became independent from Britain in 1964 and were ruled by a ruthless dictator for the next 30 years.  Today it is more stable and peaceful than in its violent past, and there has been much outreach and evangelical growth.  However, AIDS is the leading cause of death for those aged 20-49.  The younger generation is most affected by this, and there are twice as many females as males as a result.  Pray that the churches will be better equipped to minister to this group and to educate them on prevention and the effects of AIDS.
