The society all over the world is rapidly changing. I mean what is changing is human life from old to contemporary standards. Our environment has played a bigger role to such change. People especially youth think it is the physical world that has changed, but in reality it is human thinking that has changed.
To be abreast with the fast changing world young people do not like participating in sharing the word of God with friends. Youth think that that service suits the elderly and the ordained.
But Ten young volunteers who were trained, commissioned by Lutheran Hour Ministry(LHM) in Lilongwe a year ago have a lot of work to do to serve God through personal witnessing and proclaiming.
Lester Weluzani, is one of the volunteers of the LHM who shared his experience with congregants at Lilongwe Cathedral on Sunday 3rd August 2014 while leading church service.
“We (volunteers) felt good to see a lady inviting us to her house and held prayers with her family after she attended and listened to our music and drama as well as Gospel presentations last Thursday at Kagwamtipenya in Mponera Parish, Dowa, this means God has given a lot of work to do ahead of us.” Reminded Lester.
At event conducted at Kagwamtipenya congregation center Lester Weluzani preached the word of God to about 250 people who came from the surrounding villages and many of them were touched and gave their hearts to God Almighty
With volunteers the work was made easy at Kagwamtipenya. Volunteers were involved in proclaiming by singing and dancing to Gospel music. The Music touched everyone at the rally including village head, adult men and women, youth and children of the village. When it came to drama, no body was spared from laughter!
As trained evangelism team members the volunteers participated also in distribution of Bible Correspondence Course booklets after briefing the listeners. Each one of the volunteers had a writing pad, pen and booklets while registering listeners who requested for the booklets.
God gave us many people to come to him. Mrs. Joana Lenard (Not her real name) invited the ministry evangelism team and she requested for prayers for her family that has suffered for long from alcoholism of the husband. Mrs. Joana was referred to the evangelist and the church elders who lead us to Kagwamtipenya congregation Joana thanked God for the grace she received through preaching, music and drama messages.
Volunteers also prepared food themselves for lunches in readiness of activities.
