Good News, Good News

We have been working hard for the last few weeks and results are beginning to show. Currently we have six preachers in Chadiza area on an evangelism mission. They will be in Chadiza area for two weeks. Yesterday, a total of forty-three (43) individuals were baptized into Christ at Chikwa village some twenty Kilometers South East of  Chadiza town. 

A further twenty-three individuals were baptized into Christ two weeks ago at Tafelansoni area of Chadiza. This brings the number of people that have been baptized between February and March to sixty-Six (66).

Thank you.


2015 August Women’s National Meeting

We continue to be busy this year. On February 21, twenty-seven women from Chipata, Chadiza, Katete, Lundazi, Petauke, and Mozambique gathered here at Chipata Bible College for another planning session to prepare for the forth coming National Women’s Meeting that will take place here at Chipata Bible College from August 19-23 2015.

I have been informed that the women are expecting close to 1,000 women to attend this meeting from almost all the ten province in Zambia. Please pray for the success of this important meeting.

Also, today the preachers will begin to arrive with their spouses for the Preachers Monthly Meeting for March. This the first time after a long while that preachers are coming for their monthly meeting with their wives. We feel it is important for the preachers wives to have lessons so that they know how to help their husbands in Ministry.

It is an exciting time for me, Ireen, and everyone here.

God Provides the Water

I wish to report that the last few weeks have been very exciting for us in East-Reach Zambia and at Hills View Church of Christ in particular. We have seen an unprecedented number of people get baptized in to Christ. We have baptized ten (10) individuals in the last two weekends. The pics that I have send you to day show Belia Banda Phiri the wife of our late brother in Christ Wilson Phiri and her neighbor Nelly Mtonga being baptized in to Christ today at lake Apolo which some of you have seen. Many, many, many people have put on the Lord through baptism in this lake. I and a few other brothers in Christ here in Chipata feel like God put Lake Apolo there for us.

It surely provides us with the much water needed for baptism. We also just enjoy the singing and the ride to lake to baptize people. It is always an exciting experience for all of us when we drive there.

Two weeks ago the Church of Christ at Apola dam was baptizing two people who had accepted the word of God and wanted to be baptized and so they went to Lake Apolo. The same Sunday, Hills View had five individuals that had accepted Christ and wanted to be baptized. As usual we went to Lake Apolo and there we met our brothers and sisters from Apola Dam Church of Christ. We decided that instead of having two different baptism sessions that we should have one only. We asked our brother Joseph Sakala who most of you know to baptize the seven individuals which he gladly did. It was like one big family.

It reminded me of what heaven will be like when we all gather before our father in heaven. Thank you guys for making what we do here possible.
