Carrying the word of God and send it across the listening communities needs various efforts or means. LHM-Malawi ministry center disseminates His Gospel to Malawians through the efforts of ministry staff, volunteer groups from both the church and local communities. LHM also prays for any effort that an individual or groups of people put towards its program.
LHM-Malawi staff and volunteer team is praying for Chief Kalilombe for the support she gave to ministry team during rallies at Lizulu in Ntcheu.
On 25th June this year, the effort and support that Chief Kalilombe of Lizulu area in Ntcheu was exceptional. Kalilombe twice hosted the drama and music performances at his home ground despite being a traditional leader.
Traditional leaders, by custom, do not need to be associated to any religious group whose main purpose is to transform local people’s lives into God fearing people. It was culturally a taboo for Kalilombe to have done so.
“On Friday evening it was raining, he invited us to her home for the performances for free.” Reports audience relations staff.
At Lizulu trading center are several good buildings enough to accommodate the evangelism team. But no body volunteered to give the team a place for performances.
The following day, Saturday afternoon, hundreds of local people filled the ground even before the drama and music team arrived.
“people have come to this place automatically because they knew a chief gave it to Lutheran Hour ministry for activities, a thing which is unusual at Lizulu.” Answered one of the people who waited for the performances to start.
It was at this ground where so many people met Christ through messages of drama, music, Bible presentations, personal witness and interactions.
The outreach was good such that nine people joined the Lutheran church, 5 local listeners were referred to the church, and a link was made between the local community and the Lutheran Church.
LHM-Malawi staff and volunteers are, therefore, praying for the its supporters especially Chief Kalilombe and her entire family for a kind gesture she demonstrated to God’s people.
