Peace & Justice
On the eve of International Day of Peace, 15 peacemakers from around the world arrived in the U.S. to begin their two-week visit. From now until October 16 the participants will scatter across the country speaking with churches, public and private schools, universities, women and men’s groups and much more. Organizers say this is the largest group to participate as International Peacemakers.
You might think raising 10 adopted children as a single parent would be its own full-time job. For most it would be, but not for Mphasto Nguluwe. A nurse by profession, she somehow balances her prodigious parental duties with being Director for the Church of Central Africa, Presbyterian (CCAP) Livingstonia Synod Aids Program (LISAP). LISAP implements initiatives that promote quality of life for children living with HIV and whose goal is to ensure an HIV-free generation. As director, she heads three hospitals and 12 health facilities in the Synod’s catchment area. It includes working with a staff of more than 600 who serve about one million Malawians in remote locations. Nguluwe will speak to U.S. congregations and organizations this fall as part of the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program’s 2017 International Peacemakers series.
