CHURCH NEWS – Received 1st June 2017

 

The Church in Malawi is progressing in its activities, reaching out with the gospel of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ for the lost souls.

On 30th April, 2017, after our Easter Camp Meeting we visited Undi Church and we were overwhelmed by the growth of the church membership. This is an indication that the church is reaching out for the lost and they are joining the church.


On 13th May 2017, our women gathered together at Chilomoni Township Church for their annual Conference. It was wonderful and blessed Conference. The teaching was powerful and character building.


On 21st April 2017, God spoke to us to form intercession group to intercede for the lost, God’s Ministers, the oppressed, the persecuted Christians, the work of the church, etc. Every Friday we do not sleep, it is a day of fasting and praying, 24 hours (day and night). Our main scripture is Isaiah 58:6.Please Send us your prayer requests.

This is our new church land at Zalewa, Mandiwa Village and this is our Church shelter we built for our Easter Camp Meeting. The Church now is looking for finances to build a better structure for the congregation. Please assist with whatever you may have for this project.

God bless you.
Your son in the Faith,
Pastor T.J Mapira

THE BRIDE OF CHRIST CHURCH – MINISTRY OVERVIEW 2014

1n 2014, a deep, burning Christlike compassion compelled us to sacrifice all that was necessary for the salvation of others. When you survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of Glory died! No price will seem too high to pay; no sacrifice too great to make; and no problem too big to encounter for the salvation of the lost.

God has been our strength through out. He enabled us to preach the end time prophetic messages that moved the hearts of people to seek God afresh.

MY PROFOUND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I am also here to acknowledge and greatly appreciate the great work you did and are doing for the Lord and us. I admire your commitment and sincere love you have for us. I do pray for you day and night. You are an inspiration to this ministry and church. God bless you and I do trust that the Lord will continue to touch your life and ministry as you are encouraged by the news of our ministry we send you every month. May you be empowered by the Holy Spirit to do a great and mighty work for Him.

GOSPEL OUTREACH 2014

Our gospel outreach campaigns in 2014 have been marked with miracles of salvation, healing and deliverance. Hundreds of people coming to the Lord, being healed and delivered from powers of darkness. The photo below shows one of many campaigns we had.

SAD ENDING – DEADLY FLOODS IN MALAWI

The year 2014 has ended up with a sad story for Malawians as a whole.
We are experiencing deadly flooding in Malawi. The church I posed with in the photo below has been washed away by the floods. The area is flooded some people have lost their lives.
Those that survived lost all their properties. It is very sad indeed and unspeakable. Our churches in the lower Shire are affected. When all is over its when we will be tracing our surviving church members. Pray for us. We are in a confused state of mind because of the loss or our beloved ones.

Treport1
OUR PLANS AND GOALS FOR 2015

2. Organize conferences, evangelistic meetings, seminars, leadership training, and prayer ministries in conjunction with and for the benefit of the whole church of Jesus Christ.

3. Organize teams of competent and acceptable evangelists to be placed at the disposal of all churches and to be used in the work of evangelism of the church.




SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014 MINISTRY REPORT

SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2014 MINISTRY REPORT

Our Gospel Elders are here once again to share with you what God is leading them to do for His Kingdom. On 5th September 2014, God led us to Ling’awa village in Chikwawa district,

In southern Malawi, where we preached to a crowd of people. Many people raised up their hands to receive Jesus Christ and I prayed with them. Six people out of many that received Jesus Christ have joined our Church there. We also prayed for a very sick child and within an hour the child recovered, he became completely healed. From 17th October to 19th October 2014 we visited the area once again as a follow-up visitation. While we were there we visited two more villages, preaching the gospel and distributing gospel tracts. The first village we visited was Chalemera village, Tribal Area (T/A) Ndakwera. We harvested 31 people for Christ, this was on 17th October, 2014. The second village was Chimbidzi village, on 18th October 2014; we harvested 36 people for the lord. See the photo below:

On 18th October 2014 early in the morning we went to the mountain for prayers, a journey of one hour and thirty minutes, we went to pray for these villages, after our research of the area we found out that this area is the darkest part of the district, even witchdoctors are afraid of visiting this area for very wicked people live there. This is the mountain where we conducted our prayers- photo below:

Below is the photo of the shelter we were spending the night we were visited by the snake 18th October evening time, fortunately we killed . It is not easy to sleep at a place like this. We praise God for His protection. Next month we are visiting another area. Please keep on praying for us and supporting us in any way God leads you to.
