The word of God teaches us that a person cannot please God if he/she does do good with people around.
God wants us to love one another while living on earth because that pleases Him most and we can do this work only when we are still living.
There are many people in our communities who are battling with stress, anxiety, depression which mostly develop as a result long term illnesses.
This is the time when such people need our love and attachment. It is also the time for those that are helped, touched and assisted can appreciate God’s love that is manifested through His people’s acts.
Mrs. Moreen Mngongonda, of about 40 years old, this month expressed gratitude to Lutheran Hour Ministry team who visited and cheered her family while she was sick.
On Saturday January 10th the six member team traveled for five kilometers to Area 24 township in Lilongwe city to comfort Mrs. Moreen Mngongonda who fell sick from Malaria attack.
The news about her sickness reached the team after Judith Madetsa broke it to the group.
Judith is Moreen’s niece and she is also LHM-MALAWI volunteer team member.
“we spent short time sharing the word of God with Mngongonda family from the book of Romans 12:13 which says ‘rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering…’” Reports Samson Mofolo, a team leader.
The group sung praise hymns, and offered prayers for Doreen’s healing.
The group also presented a 2litre bottle of Orange Squash, a drink for the patient and wished her God’s healing.
Reverend Spensor Mngongonda, a husband to Moreen made a reflection on what Jesus said God will do to us on the judgment day when some us will receive glory just because we visited and cheered the sick-‘I was sick you visited me.”
Reverend Mngongonda who is also LHM-MALAWI board member thanked the team and asked the team to do the same to other people.
LHM-MALAWI volunteer team is a well disciplined, motivated, reverent to God and committed in the ministry work.
Currently we have 9 active young volunteers working with the ministry in drama, music and personal outreach ministries.
