    History

    In 1992, the first missionary couple, Elder James and Sister Diane Griggs, was allowed to enter Malawi. The Church was legally recognized in Malawi on April 25, 1995.

    Elder Dennis E. Simmons of the Seventy, president of the Africa Southeast Area, — with Frank Bagley, president of the Zimbabwe Harare Mission, organized the Sitima Village Branch on May 20, 1999. Within the year, branch membership had increased to about 200. A second branch was organized in Malawi on July 20, 2000 in Blantyre.
