A report from Joster Jombe who translates for CBW in Malawi
I would like to share with you some developments on our ministry. This month has been a successful and a busy one. We had a graduation for basic leaders who have benefited a lot from the translated Charles Spurgeon books, and also MINTS students who have benefited from reading CBW books. Thirty two local leaders completed their studies. My co-worker from Kenya took part in the graduation ceremony.
Some of the leaders were traveling for a long distance for studies on their push bikes. The graduation took place in a village hall. The chief and other local leaders were present during the ceremony.
All men received certificates for preaching. They thanked CBW for the role played in making reading materials available in their local language. The room was packed to capacity.
After this we also had graduation for BA and MA MINTS students. It was a grand ceremony. Fifteen students graduated with Bachelors degrees and two graduated with Masters degrees.
These students could not have finished their studies without your generous support of books. Rev. Borden from the USA presented the certificates. He emphasized that the goal of the church is to preach Christ crucified. He warned and rebuked strongly the prosperity gospel preachers. The church hall was again packed to the capacity.
We left for Zambia where we appointed the MINTS Zambia coordinator Pastor Pascal Silungwe. We met him with a few students in Lusaka. After inaugurating him as a MINTS Zambia coordinator, we returned to Malawi and on our way we also opened two more MINTS centers i.e. Chongwe and Sinda centers respectively.
In Sinda we had our meeting in the open air, where I also gave them Spurgeon books.
They asked me to send them more translated books for their leaders in Zambia and Mozambique. I ask you to pray for our ministry as it involves much traveling.
