Abstract

The Seventh-day Adventist church (hereinafter Adventists), an American splinter group of the Millerite movement established its first base in Malawi at Malamulo mission in 1902 and not at Blantyre in the late 1800s as some studies have suggested. The year 2002 marked a century of the work of Malamulo mission (hereinafter Malamulo) and in many ways, Adventists had cause for celebration for the contribution Malamulo made to the church and country in this long period. Over the decades, the mission developed into one of the most important Adventist missions in Africa. Most significantly was the provision of medical services through its famous hospital and leprosarium. In addition, Malamulo medical and teacher training institutions produced hundreds of medical personnel and teachers. Graduates of these institutions worked at the mission while others sought employment in government and church in other parts of the country and several of them went to work in other countries.
