Spreading the Gospel in Malawi

by Gracious

I have been so busy giving leadership Bible study classes. I feel like I am working double shifts. I teach during the day for 4hrs and on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays I also start from 5:30pm to 8pm. I have two groups, one has 6 full time students and pastors and the other one has 4. They are becoming well trained and I have seen much change in them. They now go from household to household using tracts and the Key Bible Verse booklets to reach out and minister to others. They are already becoming good teachers themselves since I always send them interested people to be taught so they can practice all that they learn in my classes.







I have a good time sharing the word of God and explaining about the classes going from business to business. People and many church leaders find this so inspiring. Their comment is that if other Christians and churches would be actively teaching others as Family Care Ministries does, many people would have more faith in and get a greater understanding of God’s word. We are indeed unique in all what we do here.

I also go with students door to door and many people get prayed for in the parks of Zomba. We have been witnessing in different areas meeting people and sharing with them the word of God. Our theme has always been the same: LOVE. The booklet with Bible verses has become a good tool in helping them know the truth about salvation and other topics. We have been going into Muslim communities without fear knowing that the love of God is for all of us. Their joy after receiving the word of God increases our faith daily. We are motivated by the love of God to do good and preach His gospel to all. The Lord leads us to those He wants us to meet and talk to.

Ruth also teaches lots of others around Zomba. She has formed about 4 groups which have more than 10 people who gather on the days of classes. She has trained other women how to witness. Testimonies are endless with these women groups. They’re out three times a week and are winning many souls. The women group is engaged in family counseling and families are no longer the same in most Zomba areas. They help each other to overcome family problems. They are also visiting inmates and are going to hospitals to pray and share the message of salvation with the sick and the staff at the hospital.

Some of the women in this group put their money together to travel to a rural area. Her report from this trip showed that 30 people received the word of salvation and were prayed for. They taught them some parts of our Bible study course as well.

Our main challenge now is training manuals. Many of our dedicated members can’t understand English well and therefore it isn’t easy for them to use the English ones. Finding the money for transport for visitation remains a problem too during this time as things are getting worse and worse economically and Malawi is experiencing a hunger crisis. The government has reached a point of even passing a law that no one should be employed until  further notice. So a major challenge we face is lack of employment. Many can’t provide for their families.

One of our members, who just graduated from our course on the 17th October 2015, got sick and within two days peacefully passed away. Before passing on in the hospital, he praised the Lord in tongues and loudly said these words:”I have carried my torch; carry yours also.”  We testified of this to all the 500 people who attended the funeral and many were touched since this brother was known for being a nonbeliever before. As a result many people inquired about Family Care Ministries and who this man was working with. Soon after the event many showed great interest to join the course immediately. Our brother Henderson was a very dedicated person who joined our team as a student in October 2014. Despite death being a blow to many who have little faith, his death has acted as fuel to our growing ministry.

The new graduates never have time to rest but are already busy out there winning souls and training others. It’s my hope that, as we focus on educating them, they will do even greater things with what we have given them. As the Bible says in 2 Timothy chapter 2: “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
