Joyce Banda, Malawi’s new President!

Hey everyone! Mariel here. I was perusing the internet and I saw this wonderful article about Joyce Banda, the brand new president of Malawi:  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/apr/29/malawi-president-joyce-banda-women-rights

For those of you who don’t know, Malawi’s former president died of a heart attack a few weeks ago, and Banda was sworn in after narrowly avoiding a coup d’etat by the former President’s brother.  She is taking a stand and making a name for herself.  In the past few weeks she has already fired the corrupt police chief and ministers, hired a new cabinet, and taken a stand for women’s rights.  Please join our team in praying for her success as she fights a very uphill battle as the first woman head of state in southern Africa.

Madalisto (blessings),

Team Malawi
