HISTORY OF PILLAR OF FIRE IN MALAWI
The Pillar of Fire Church was established in Malawi in 1984, when Reverend Moses Peter K. Phiri,
a native of Malawi, contacted Pillar of Fire to discuss African missions. To this point, Rev.
Phiri had been working as an evangelist in both Zimbabwe and Malawi. He expressed his interest in
joining the Pillar of Fire Church and working to establish its presence in Malawi. In 2001, Reverend
Joshua Quartey-Sey was appointed as Field Director to serve alongside of Rev. Phiri and his son Phillip
Phiri to continue the work being done in the country.
