During our outreach that was conducted in September this year in Dedza there was no one who was left unreached.
A wide variety of about 500 people with differing education backgrounds gathered at Chauma Community Resource Centre and enjoyed Gospel messages that Lutheran Hour Ministry staff and volunteers presented on Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th September, 2014 in the afternoon.
Everyone who attended the rallies at least heard the Good News of Jesus Christ as Bible Correspondence Course booklets were distributed, and the individual recipients were assisted to read the Booklets by staff and volunteers.
Nonetheless, some people who could not request booklets opted for Music and live drama performances and were convicted to hear the word of God.
Music and Drama that were performed artistically drew people from the village around and hear the word of God in large numbers.
Apart from the adult participants children also attended our activities, and they were also not exempted. Mrs Failet Mgomezulu a dramatist volunteer took her time and taught about 30 children who attended the church service on Sunday morning.
Both the LHM evangelism team and the host Lutheran members of chauma preaching point were blessed with nice voices of songs by four young girls before a congregation. powerful messages came to us through songs: “God is wonderful. He gives us a lot of gifts, what can we give back to Him.” in another song sisters sung that ‘God is an excellent rock, in creation you are number one.’ everyone in the church felt excited and amazed. What a wonderful and blessing outreach we had in Dedza.
Chauma is very young Lutheran preaching point with less than 20 members, and its main work is to evangelize in the larger populated village and serve more local people with living word of God. So the said outreach have contributed to achieve such cause.
