Among others, the renowned Korean evangelist stressed on his passion for the youths saying they were crucial in development.
During his meeting with President Chakwera, he said, they touched on exchange visits for young people under the International Youth Fellowship (IYF), a Christian youth organisation he established in 2001.
“IYF is now one of the largest and most innovative Christian youth organizations in the world. With programs such as the IYF World Camp, the Good News Corps, and IYF Medical Volunteer Program; IYF is currently setting new standards in the mission fields of the world and changing today’s youth into ambassadors of hope.
“We believe Malawian Youth can benefit through this organisation, spiritually and also as good leaders,” Reverend Park told journalists at the Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC), after meeting Chakwera.
In his reaction, President Chakwera described the meeting as fruitful.
“[We] explored various ways through which his ministry can collaborate with Malawi to transform livelihoods,” Chakwera shared on his official Facebook page.
