It’s time for the second Malawi trip this year. The first trip in July, was made up of a team of eight people, here we concentrated on ministry to the church in Lilongwe which involved leadership training and ministry to three of the surrounding congregations including teaching at Bunda Quarry Church. This was the first church to be planted by Chad Lahana and the team from Joshua Generation Church (JoshGen) in 2008.
We then bussed up the coast to Kande Beach Village where we ministered to the church which Lance Mcintosh planted 12 years ago. New eldership and deacon couples were set in, people committed their lives to Jesus and baptisms in the lake were order of the week.
This second trip is to be based at Alpha Omega Pentecostal Church in Lilongwe which is led by Harvey Chabinga.
Harvey has had a relationship with JoshGen for 12 years. Here the leaders from Kande Beach are busing down to join us in Lilongwe. We will be going back to Bunda Quarry Church to minister and build relationship there followed by ministry at the church in Lilongwe and a few days with the leaders of the churches there.
Future plans? Possibly holding a FOUR12 training time in Lilongwe for the eastern Zambian and central Malawian churches followed by an outreach during July 2016.
Please keep us in prayer– God is doing a great thing in Malawi and we are excited to be a part of it! Thank you to every one who responded to the call to be a part of donating clothes for us to take with us to give to the folks in Malawi.
