Serving in Lilongwe, Malawi 

We have an incredible ministry team serving in Lilongwe that is led by Reaching The Hungry's Malawi Staff: Alfred, Joshua, and McDonnex. All three are remarkable men of God who would love to share with you a little about themselves and the work they're doing to grow God's Kingdom.

McDonnex Devison Nthala


Ministry Coordination Department Head

Greetings! My name is McDonnex and I'm the eighth born in a family of 10 children. I'm married to Violet Sinago and we are blessed with 3 biological children — Vannesa, Miracle and Micaiah — and one adopted child, Anita.

I have a MSCE (Malawi School Certificate of Education) and was awarded a certificate from the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa for working with vulnerable children & families affected by HIV/AIDS, poverty, and displacement. I also earned a diploma in Biblical Studies from Network Beyond's ITI (International Training Institute) and a Partnership Certificate from DJJ (Discipleship Journeys with Jesus).

I am an evangelist by calling and a pastor by choice trained in pastoral services. I've worked as a missionary in Malawi and in neighboring countries for over 15 years under my church.

It is so amazing to be working with Reaching The Hungry under the leadership of Pastor Carlos. For years, my fellow staff members and I have had zeal for ministry but little to no resources. Now with Reaching The Hungry, we do — and I am so thankful to God! We have access to the transportation we need to reach communities in remote areas and the equipment to showcase the Jesus Film to them. Jesus Film Outreaches are a key component of Reaching The Hungry's ministry in Malawi as they gather large crowds in which hundreds accept Christ as their Savior!


As the Ministry Coordination Department Head, I plan, recruit, and prepare for the RTH-USA Team's Malawi mission trips, as well as organize & lead follow-up ministry to villages. 

Joshua Josophat Kalimwayi


Mission Department Head

Hi! My name is Joshua and I'm a pastor who by the grace of God received God's call to ministry in 2014.


In preparation to serve in ministry, I went through theological seminary in 2015-2018. In 2018, I finished that three-year course of Theological Studies then joined Africa Nazarene University in Nairobi Kenya for my undergraduate degree — which I received in 2023. While in school, I enjoyed serving with various ministries which enabled me to engage in evangelism, church planting, teaching, and preaching — all of which fostered my growth as a disciple of Christ and strengthened my skills as a ministry leader.

In September 2023, I joined RTH's Malawi Staff as the Mission Department Head working directly with the ministry team. I also serve as the supervisor of Reaching Hungry's Medicine Store overseeing its day-to-day operations. It is located in Lilongwe, Malawi, and we just opened its doors at the end of 2023. It is a key component of Reaching The Hungry because it will be funding the ministry here in Malawi — all for the glory of God!

At the end of 2023, I also got engaged to marry Egrita Banda and we're planning to get married in 2024!

Alfred Qipo Jeremiah


Leadership & Discipleship Training Department Head

Hello! My name is Alfred and I'm the last born in a family of six children. I'm married to Mestinar and we are blessed with 2 children: Alfred & Blessings.

Most of the schools I have gone through have been centered around finishing the Great Commission. After earning my MSCE (Malawi School Certificate of Education), I attended the School of Ministry at Living Family Ministerial School for 3 years  after which I was ordained as a pastor on August 7th, 2016. I was awarded a Purpose Driven Church Training Certificate after 6 months of intensive training and a Bible certificate after another 6 months course at Living Family Ministerial School. Additionally, I've trained at Thomson Bible International Training Institute and I've received my African Pastoral Training Ministries Certificate. Most recently, I earned a diploma in Biblical Studies from Network Beyond's ITI (International Training Institute) and a Partnership Certificate from DJJ (Discipleship Journeys with Jesus).

I've worked as a pastor in several local churches which introduced me to a missions & evangelism team that connected me not only in Malawi but also in neighboring countries. Additionally, I've served alongside Mother Tereza and the Dream Nations Missions team — specifically working with vulnerable children & families affected by natural disasters here in Malawi.

I thank God for connecting me with Reaching The Hungry. In the past, my fellow staff members and I had the zeal to minister, serve, evangelize and teach — but we had little to no resources. Now, we are able to go out under the financial help, moral support, supervision, and mentorship from Pastor Carlos and the whole Reaching The Hungry family in the USA. We've been trained on how to train others who can then be trusted to go & teach people who will go & teach more people— helping to fulfill the Great Commission.


As the Leadership & Discipleship Training Department Head, I plan, teach, and maintain the training and discipleship program for RTH-Malawi. Leadership & Discipleship Trainings for Bible Study Group Leaders are a key component of Reaching The Hungry's ministry in Malawi. RTH's teaching is unique in Malawi since it focuses on the relationship between man and God — not man and church/church leaders — and emphasizes the transformation of people into disciples of Christ (rather than mere church members). Throughout the year, RTH's Malawi Staff leads revivals in remote villages to launch Bible Study Groups (BSGs) that are then provided with Bible lessons so that new believers can be guided on their journey with Christ. Globally, Reaching The Hungry has over 12,000 small group members and started over 100 churches in the last 10 years.
