Malawi Pastor Shares Stories of AIDS Pandemic

Listen to this story
AIDS is out of control in most of Africa. Almost 30 million people are infected in the countries of southern Africa alone. About one fifth of Malawi's adults have HIV/AIDS. A staggering 2.5 million of the country's 12.5 million people are infected. AIDS is the single biggest factor that keeps Malawi one of the poorest countries in the world. It robs its economy of its most productive workers. After losing three of his own brothers and their wives to the AIDS pandemic, the Reverend Maurice Munthali and his wife, Thandie, with three of their own children, adopted his brothers' 12 children. Pastor Munthalie toured the North Country earlier this month, visiting church and community leaders from Watertown to Plattsburgh, with a message of grace and hope. He spoke by phone with Todd Moe.
