The Central Africa Medical Mission is accepting applications for Nurse-in-Charge for the Lutheran Mobile Clinic (Malawi) for a 3 year term of service.  The nurse-in-charge must be an RN with clinic or hospital experience.  The nurse-in-charge supervises clinic staff and maintains all clinic functions.  Preferred applicants are single females due to living arrangements.  The term of service will begin in November 2017.  Because employment permits for Malawi take almost a year to process, candidates will be selected in early 2017.  
All applicants must be in good standing within WELS or ELS membership.
An application may be obtained by contacting Beth Evans ( or Linda Liesener (
