On January 23, 2022, Tropical Storm Ana hit land in Mozambique and moved northwest across southern Malawi to Zambia. It left a trail of destruction: devastating floods hit Southern Africa. It is hard to predict what the long-term consequences will be or to what extent this will set back our partner countries in Malawi and Zambia. Both countries remain among the poorest in the world. Our local partners give an insight into the situation and ask for support.
“Due to his skills and passionate heart for mission, the Executive Committee (Board of Directors) of EBM INTERNATIONAL unanimously appoint Prof. Dr. Michael Kißkalt as the new General Secretary.” With these words, the president of EBM INTERNATIONAL, Emma Mabidilala from South Africa, summarized her written recommendation for the delegates of the council in the run-up to the online mission council. This passion was evident in Pastor Michael Kißkalt’s personal introduction at the meeting. He will be appointed as the new General Secretary from January 2023. Michael will take over from Pastor Christoph Haus, who will retire after 14 years of service at EBM INTERNATIONAL.
