Malawi gets PEF

This is an exciting thing for the members of the Church here.  It has taken some time to get it set up and approved in Malawi but PEF (Perpetual Education Fund) is now here.  (We didn't have anything to do with it).  There is a training this afternoon for the leaders and tomorrow afternoon is a fireside for members.    PEF is a program where eligible  members can apply for a loan to go to school (within their own country) and then they pay back the loan and the money is then used for someone else.  It is a great program and we saw a lot take advantage of it when we were in Zimbabwe.
