While many objectives of the Network can be achieved with the WEB site and mailing list, nothing can really replace a Face-to-Face meeting to help generate understanding, camaradarie, and encourage sharing. The Malawi Mission Network was first formed at a Face-to-Face meeting in August, 2003 near Louisville, KY. We had approximately 30 people at the meeting and we shared what we were all doing and were gladened to see how much we all had in common but also how much we could learn from each other. Everyone felt this was an extremely valuable opportunity and they wanted to do it again. Since then the meetings have been growing and improving every year.
As valuable and interesting as the formal presentations are, probably the most valuable part of the Meeting is the chance to meet and network with others with the same interests as you, and likely very different experiences you can both learn from.
We have lined up an exciting program for this conference. Our Keynote speaker is Rev. Davidson Chifungo, the General Secretary of Synod of Nkhoma. We will also have Rev. Vasco Kachipapa, the moderator of Synod of Nkhoma.

See our Agenda to see the exciting programs we have planned. We will have several Solar Related presentations and updates on the current Malawi political situation plus talks from quite a number of our mission co-workers.
Registration deadline is July 23rd, 2012. After that, if space is still available, you may be accomodated but you may not get your first choice of room assignments - so register early.
You may wish to bring other family members that will not be attending the program (spouse and children) and they may stay in the Center without attending the program - the costs would be that shown above minus $75. That is if a husband and wife were sharing a double room at $285.00 apiece(with early discount), then they could bring a child and then it would be counted as a Triple room and the adults would pay $260.00 apiece while the child would pay $185.00. If you have more than 4 in a family that want to attend, contact the coordinator (Jim Nussbaumer) about the rates. For info about what you or the other family members can do in the area, check out the Travel Page.
You may also wish to come a day or two early or stay a day or two after the conference to take advantage of the wonderful Colorado mountains in the summer time. Contact the coordinator (Jim Nussbaumer) for rates on that. There is no guarantee if meals will be served in the Retreat Center if there are not enough people staying there, but there are many places to eat in the surrounding areas.
