The Vilakati Journey
Mapile and Hannah Vilakati
Who we are:
Our names are Hannah and Mapile Vilakati and we live in Swaziland, Africa. Mapile was born and bred in Swaziland. Hannah was born in the USA and grew up as a missionary kid in Zambia. We have been married since August 2015, and our beautiful daughter, Simo, was born November 1st, 2016. Currently we are living at a Wesleyan Bible College in Swaziland where Mapile is a staff member. Hannah is working as a supervising pediatric nurse in a children's home for an organization called Heart for Africa.
While this is where we currently are, we are also planning and looking forward to a ministry that God has put on our hearts for a place in the southern part of Swaziland called Mbutfu, which is where Mapile grew up. Our dream is to bring radical change to the young people there by building a community center that offers support and encouragement to the youth of the area. Though this is the big dream, our heart is to serve the people of Swaziland daily to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
Who we serve:
We serve the people of Swaziland.
How you can pray:
- Pray for us as a family, that we would live our lives in a way that honors and glorifies the Lord.
- Pray for the people of Swaziland, that they might have a real encounter with God that might transform them into having radically changed lives.
