An African Christian will lead and share worship in two Banffshire churches this weekend, proclaiming and celebrating the Easter message.
Nelson Mkandawire, a director of the charity, Chisomo Children’s Club, in the East African state of Malawi, will be the guest of Gardenstown Parish Church, where he will lead a men’s prayer breakfast on Saturday morning from 8.30am-10.15am and preach at the service on Sunday at 6pm.
On Easter Day, Mr Mkandawire will be the speaker at the Harvest Centre, Banff, at 10.30am.
Gardenstown minister, the Rev Donald Martin, said: “Chisomo is a charity that looks after street children in Malawi. They help get thousands of youngsters off the streets.
“I met Nelson Mkandawire when I was in Malawi, and again in Scotland last year. He is a very unassuming man with great faith and a very deep commitment to the children. He is doing tremendous work over there, rescuing children from the streets.
“I think his visit will help raise awareness among people here of the real need in Malawi.”
