Welcome to the SaltMalawi web site
SaltMalawi is a UK registered charity working to relieve poverty and suffering, to enhance education and to advance the Christian faith. Currently we work through a Malawian team, mentored since 2002 by Julian and Caroline Lott, Christian missionaries from the UK. When Julian and Caroline Lott were first called by God to serve Him in Malawi, they saw their principal work both within Malawi and Mozambique to be:
- to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ
- to plant churches, and
- to train leaders.
The abject poverty, however, of the people in the areas in which they were working made it impossible to ignore their material needs whilst only being concerned with their spiritual needs. So the work expanded to include a number of relief projects.
Latest News - May 2013:
On Wednesday (8th May), SaltMalawi trustee Ian Furlong, together with his wife Jan, travelled to Malawi to spend the next 2 weeks with our missionaries, Julian and Caroline Lott. They will be there to bring encouragement and fellowship to Julian and Caroline and to experience first-hand the many issues faced by our team in this work. A focal point of their stay will be a 4-day church leaders conference to be held next week at Mphalale village, where between 80 and 100 delegates will gather from our village churches across the country. Ian, a church leader from Warwick, will join Julian in bringing the teaching programme to the conference and sharing the eager discussions which will go on till late each evening.
More than 80% of the population of Malawi live in deep poverty in rural villages, in homes without electricity, running water or sufficient food, yet these church leaders and members will bring something to this conference that reflects what Jesus meant when he says in Luke’s Gospel, “Blessed are the poor, for the Kingdom of God is amongst them.” We look forward to hearing from Ian and Jan on their return.
