Philemon 1:6
St. Andrews Secondary School in Mulanje, Malawi
Together with our partner church, St. Andrews Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), we have realized the dream of building a secondary school with facilities for 200 students. The school includes two academic buildings, a science lab, computer lab building, and a lavatory building.  Additionally, Phase Two of construction included building quarters for the headmaster and teachers, and renovation of a building for administrative offices. Along with hundreds of Malawians, representatives from Southminster traveled to St. Andrews for the dedication ceremony on September 23, 2012. We rejoice in God’s goodness for helping us to accomplish this goal.
