Paul has travelled 7 or 8 times to Malawi, a former British Colony, and to Zomba a city in southern Malawi which until 1975 was the capital city, (having been replaced by Lilongwe as capital.) In 2001 the former mayor, John Dallat, invited Dick Gordon, a Presbyterian minister to address the Coleraine Borough Council and through this meeting the link between Coleraine and Zomba was formed.
