ALL HANDS-ON DECK IN THIS STORM: Our order is to take the gospel to the ends of the earth! The greatest tool we have is prayer! “The history of missions is the history of answered prayer."
Dear Supporters, Prayer Warriors, and Followers of God’s Mission,
Warm season’s greetings from Africa. Thank you for remaining committed to support and pray for the ministry work in Southern Africa. Coming to the end of 2020, there is a prominent question to ask ourselves; Did 2020 help me refocus on God and His plan and purpose for my life on earth in His mission?
My focus is to be equipped to equip others to find their role in the GREAT COMMISSION and to bringing Children’s Ministry work as a priority to reach a generation of WARRIORS for end-time ministry! Jesus emphasized this ministry when He asked Simon Peter this question, “…do you love Me?” He then commanded, “…feed My lambs,” to instruct how we should show our love. So, let’s sharpen our skills and tools to pray, reach, and disciple! God will see our love for Him, indeed!
While partnering, we can help others find their role in the GREAT COMMISSION as we support missions and collaborate with others to be more effective. Then, we can enlarge our camp and step onto platforms to impact more people to be involved by equipping and empowering them.
This year is a season of mobilizing more prayer for the UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS (UPG), and for this, we need to be skilled ourselves, updated, and have resources in hand. Through the WhatsApp Groups coordinated by Movement for African National Initiatives, coordinators for regions and ministry groups are active and being informed and equipped to mobilize others to arise and pray for the lost in their communities and the unreached in their nations. I also joined the WhatsApp Group for Africa Women in Missions Network and African Children in Missions Network with a goal to help equip others and mobilize more of God’s people to pray for the UPG and give counsel to enlarge impact and share workable strategies.
In January 2020, the Malawi training was presented by Weavefamily.org called THE BIG STORY. The focus was to “Know Your Story” / “Know His Story,” and to see how God works in the area of HIS WORD, HIS WORLD, and HIS WORK. Then, training was presented online through ZOOM in September to learn how to mobilize families to pray for UPG through practicing mission habits concerning PRAYER, GOING, WELCOMING, SENDING, and MOBILIZING. The Big Story Series is free to help you, as a children’s worker or parent, mobilize and engage others in praying for the UPG. This is a downloadable resource that comes in PDF format.

Training sessions are about to begin in Malawi to equip children’s workers in the process of developing as INSTRUCTORS OF TEACHERS. The course is presented by the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) named Teaching Children Effectively (TCE). Be in prayer for the 20 students.
The Annual Children’s Workers Training session, which started in Malawi in December 2000, will take place at Guthrie Bible Training Centre again this December. Pray as this group of students comes for four sessions covering levels one through four. These levels prepare them for the CEF, TCE course, developing them from teachers to instructors of Child Evangelism. Pray for this Teaching Team.
The outreach ministry in the International Cure Orthopedic Hospital in Blantyre resumed. Our target was to reach 20 kids in the month of November and 20 kids in the month of December. We were also prepared with kids' gospel tracts, which were translated in Chichewa and tucked-in an envelope pasted inside the Children’s Chichewa Bible for the kids to read through carefully and respond. Pray over these kids who were in surgery, for the Holy Spirit to reveal and establish the truth about Jesus Christ being their Savior in their hearts.
THANK YOU, PEOPLE-TO -PEOPLE, through the RELIEF PROGRAM, we were able to assist families caring for special needs kids, orphans, and street kids in Nidande and Nyambadwe in Blantyre for the fourth month. These kids and the families received spiritual food too and are in discipleship groups to grow spiritually. Pray over them that the love and grace of God, which embraced them, will empower them to become great testifiers of HIS GREAT LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS towards them! THANK YOU, CHURCHES, AND ALL MEMBERS FOR SOWING INTO THE PTP - RELIEF PROGRAM.
Christmas day will be a time to present the street kids in the safe home at STEKA HOUSE, a Christmas devotion and a breakfast bun, loaded with a bacon and egg burger. Christmas celebration songs will be sung with grateful hearts for this provision for this special morning celebrating the birth of the King of the universe. Pray with us for the good news of Christ the Savior to impact the heart of every child. More kids and helpers joined STEKA HOUSE this year, and we are prepared to feed 100 people and present children’s Bibles for the newcomers to read.
