The Lamb is worthy of worship from every tribe, tongue, nation, and people. Thank you for making it possible to reach children in Southern Africa. Children’s ministry work is developing in the nations, and God is ushering in creative ways to reach children from different tribes. He is redirecting their lives and worship by His grace through faith.
God opened an incredible door to reach more tribes in Malawi through the ministry opportunity at the Cure International Orthopedic Children's hospital in Blantyre. Kids come from all over Malawi to receive corrective surgery. These kids are now called in weekly in groups of 40, and they stay connected with the hospital for follow-up. Being a Christian Hospital, the focus is to impact the kids spiritually. Since 2003, after an accident, I ended up in this hospital and began ministry work the second day with the kids until I recovered six months later.
The director in the hospital asked me to continue ministry work there, engaging a ministry team to extend outreach and ministry work with the kids. Now, 18 years later, the new spiritual director asked if we would partner with the hospital and manage a comprehensive child evangelism program. This includes training the caregivers, parents, and the staff of the hospital, equipping them as child evangelists and aligning them for harvest. The word the Lord gave me three months ago: “align for harvest,” is all very clear now!
We need help to embrace this opportunity fully with enough resources and to get the Bibles to the furthest villages in Malawi. The request was made to present a Chichewa Children’s Bible to each child to take back to their home village. Forty Bibles are needed on a weekly basis. Each Bible costs ten dollars. Please consider adopting a Bible drive with the youth or group to support this project. The account number is Bibles #11643P IPHC WMM – You can send funds to the WMM office and earmark check.
Please also consider helping with the supply of training materials now needed to train every guardian/parent accompanying the children to the hospital and caring for the child. The goal is to fully train them to return to the village to lead other children to Christ, counsel them for salvation, teach them God’s Word, and mobilize them to prayer and missions. This may empower the trained workers to teach biblical studies in the village school. A set of four Chichewa textbooks is ten dollars, and it includes evangelism tools to teach and reach kids in the village and schools. The account for this is Child Evangelism Africa #10004P IPHC WMM – You can send funds to the WMM office and earmark check.
Congratulations to the Children’s Ministry National Leaders of Malawi who obtained their diploma in Children’s Ministry by attending the Children’s Ministry Institute in Zambia. Thank you to the sponsoring family who invested this seed in these leaders. Robert (on the left) is working in the Cure Child Evangelism Program, and Chimwemwe (on the right) is also serving as a representative of Children’s Ministry Directors of Southern Malawi in the newly formed National Committee.
Thank God with us for a historical meeting in September where the directors of Children’s Ministries and NGO/Mission organizations met together in Lilongwe, Malawi, and formed a National Committee to coordinate Children’s Ministries in Malawi. What a breakthrough! The goal is to take hands and meet the needs of the children in Malawi and develop systems to engage resources to equip and empower children to reach their full potential in Christ. Pray with us for wisdom and direction from God to accomplish the goals He has for the children in Malawi! Pray for this corporate team to radically impact the nation through the children.
This coming November, December, and January, my time will be spent in Mauritius to impact leaders and children to encourage, develop, and mobilize in post Covid ministry work. We need to regroup and reset to align for the harvest!
Pray that my travel documents will line up to travel through the Southern Africa countries in 2022 and for my USA VISA to be issued for furlough. I plan on arriving in Oklahoma at the beginning of July 2022. I am looking forward to seeing you at the General Conference in Florida at the end of July. I am planning to be in North Carolina from August 1 to the end of December 2022.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and booking a date to visit your church or group to share how God is working to align us as partners for a greater harvest. Send an email to request the booking schedule, firstname.lastname@example.org
