The global leader of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Pastor Ted Wilson, has arrived in Malawi this morning for a three-day pastoral visit.
Pastor Wilson has jetted in with his wife and was welcomed on arrival at Kamuzu International Airport by cabinet minister of Gender, Mary Navicha.
Pastor Wilson proceeded to Lilongwe Civic Office to sign the visitors’ book and avail himself to the city mayor, Juliana Kaduya, before visiting the MUC where he will lead a tree planting event.
His first official assignment today was a meeting with President Peter Mutharika at the Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe in the afternoon.
His arrival follows months of preparations within the Adventist community in Malawi.
Pastor Wilson’s visit will hit the climax Saturday when he will lead Adventists and other people of goodwill into big Sabbath prayers at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe from 8:30 am.
Those unable to physically patronize the big Sabbath at the stadium will have an opportunity to follow every bit of the prayers live through Zodiak radio, televisions and Facebook live streaming.
Before flying out on Monday, Pastor Wilson will on Sunday visit Malamulo Mission in Thyolo district, one of the church’s historical places in the country.
Later he will also visit Blantyre Adventist Hospital in the country’s commercial city, Blantyre.

This is the first visit of Pastor Wilson to Malawi since assuming presidency during the 59th General Conference Session in Atlanta, Georgia.
Wilson was re-elected to the office of president at the 60th General Conference Session on July 3, 2015, at the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in San Antonio, Texas.
