Malawi Adventure 2014 – Day 3
by Mission News
Today our delegation visited Nsangwe in Chikwawa. The journey took roughly a bit over 2 hours each way.
As usual we were enthusiastically welcomed by our brothers and sisters there with the now expected high level of choir and youth singing to entertain us. After some very sound ministry by both John and Gilbert Nayna we participated in an oversight conference providing some doctrinal support and clarification to the pastors to assist them to better serve their respective assemblies.
Everything about the people here speaks of the fact that their lives are hard yet their joy and hope for the future is unfailing! Some may see our visit as being an encouragement to the Malawi folks however all members of our delegation would see it as the other way around.
Our short visit to Nsangwe provided us all with an insight into what village life may entail. For example the baptism tank that was used to baptise five people had to be filled with water carried from quite a distance away.
Even in a country where water is a precious resource there is a clear understanding that full immersion baptism is a mandatory step in the salvation process.
The folks here require a meeting hall just like anywhere else in the world. Again, we are reminded that it is not the building itself but the people inside it that represent the church!
There would have been more photos but due to user operator failure (tiredness!) I am calling it a day. Good night and God bless.
