Missions Report

Subject: Borehole project completed in the community of Mpheto

Dear Mr. I Live for Him,
We thank you so much for your continue willingness and commitment to help The Fellowship in Malawi with safe and clean waters. May God continue blessing you more and more abundantly.
This is to report that we have done the work of drilling the borehole with the contractors we hired for this work. We have paid them the full amount as you sent to us. It was a great celebration, when the Mpheto Community gathered on one place to celebrate the presenting of the borehole in their area.
All groups of people including The Fellowship leaders and Village heads gathered in a large group. The hymn and cheers of the day was ;  ” THE LAND IS HEALED”. As you may see people are very very happy indeed and had this to say.
VILLAGE HEADMAN MPHETO
“Today my Community is healed. I cannot imagine what great excitement this community has on this day. We were nobodies since this land came into being and our problem was without alternative, but now the land is healed. We were in great problems traveling long distances, fetching for waters which were not even good, but deadly.
Our children, women, and old people were victims of Cholera, Dysentery, opening bowels, etc. We have  had tough times regarding  safe and clean water, but nobody intervened the situation.
We were using dirty, colorful and stinky waters not because we loved it, but because we had nowhere to go. People were dying every week from water borne diseases but to no alternative. But through The Fellowship in the USA and Malawi, we have been healed. The distances which were covered to get this bad water are now converted into reasonable distances to get good waters.
People were so abused in every way possible without anywhere to address their problem, especially women and youth girls who were charged, raped and wounded as they try to fetch water. Our children were failing to go to School as normal, but we thank God that now everything is going to change for good. Praise the Lord !!!!! AMEN.”
Hello  Brother Duane. This is Mpheto village. And here is a short testimony from  a fin woman drinking clean and safe water. I sent her photo in the next attachment.
“ I am Falesi Kugoma, I was down at my bed for three weeks now, suffering from opening of bowels. A have suffered greatly and my body was so weak ready to die. I thank God that He has raised me up again so that I can witnessing the great miracle of this borehole which will be working wonderful and serving a great number of people in our community. We have lost many brothers and sisters due to the crisis of using bad and dirty water. Water contaminated with bad things from our rivers and streams has damaged our people and has caused a great disaster. We have been crying weekly as we were seeing our brothers and sisters dying with waterborne diseases. Now we are singing great praise as we are celebrating the great victory from our God by providing us this great gift of a borehole through you The fellowship brothers and sisters in the USA,  which will be supplying safe and clean water to our community and here I am drinking with happy, showing you than now I am healed, and this water will be serving great healing to our community. May the Lord bless you richly.”

Thanks,

24/Seven,

Charles.

Dear Mr. I Live For Him, and brother Eric,
We hope you are doing fine. I’m here to give you some updates concerning The Fellowship ministry in Malawi and Mozambique.
But first and foremost, please, receive our thanks and appreciations for the endless commitment you show to us in this ministry— supplying us with funds for the ministry and all the required teaching materials which we are using in our training centers in both Malawi and Mozambique.
They are timely and best materials which are transforming our leaders who are also transforming their respective communities. Also the provision for Bibles which is a great support in this ministry for helping the people of Malawi and Mozambique to get the opportunity to have God’s word in their homes and ministries. These are the new groups of leaders who have received the Bibles bought from the last donation you sent. The fellowship  leaders  coming from the different places are very happy with the gift they have received after you donated us with funds for Bibles and other needs. In their testimony they said that they are seeing God hand  of encouragement and leading them to the ministry and giving them His word as His weapon in this battle. And they promised to go out in their villages and work hard to bring down the Kingdom of God in their communities.
With April and May these trainings have been taking places in both Countries. Thank you for your prayers and support. More reports coming.
24/Seven,
Charles.

Dear Mr. I Live for Him,

Many greetings towards the end of the year in Jesus Name. We hope you are doing fine.

Firstly, we are here to report about the great work of transformation the ministry of The Fellowship is doing.

The trainings and classes are doing very well in the different districts of Malawi and Mozambique.

Recent testimonies from one area where we are currently undertaking the trainings and preaching are just very wonderful.

For many decades, the area has depended on witch doctors to heal their diseases and have spent a lot of money on them but still people were not helped. The whole area was a muslim area and people didn’t know Jesus.

But when The Fellowship went there and preached the gospel, to everyones amazement witch doctors surrendered their lives to Christ after seeing great wonders and miracles being taking place in their area.

People with many diseases and tuberculosis were healed instantly and proved healed with many. Many people who practiced witchcraft and satanism are totally restored to the normal through Jesus Name. The business of the witch doctors have collapsed and they have all surrendered to Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

Secondly, we would like to thank and appreciating for the last donation you made to buy food and Bibles. We bought 20 bags of maize, and distributed to the widows who are caring for the disabled children. We distributed to other needy ones also but the most went to those caring to disabled.

We also distributed Bibles to the needy leaders and as you will be seeing their photos in my next email. The pastors were so happy to receive the Bibles and were so encouraged in the work of the Lord. They testified that none of them had ever dreamed of having a Bible in their homes, and that it was a miracle to them to receive one. May God bless you so much for your consideration. The leaders are in classes and are preaching very powerfully because have Bibles.

Now concerning your question on our need, we have none other than the food, Bibles and Borehole needs. For the food and Bibles, we just pray that you should continue supporting us so that we should reach out to many needy leaders and poor households. We thank you for all you have been doing, but pray that it should continue.

But concerning the Borehole, the need is so critical. The Baluwa village borehole in Mulanje district is too populated with those who seek good waters. As we are writing, hundreds of women and girls do flock from very far villages coming to Baluwa village to fetch good waters.

We went to visit the needy villages and were so surprised to see the distances which these women are covering to reach Baluwa village borehole. Some are covering 4—6 hours of travel to reach the borehole and get back to their homes. Through this way they leave their homes, just after taking the evening meals and go their way so that they should walk while it is cool. In so doing they walk the whole night, going and back, reaching their homes 3—4 AM.

Some women and girls are on risk as on the way they meet with many evil things, like snakes, wild animals and some evil men who are doing to them all sorts of harm. Chiefs and many village heads are very concerned with this and are very much crying.

To ease the situation we have opened The Fellowship ministry there and our teams are preaching the gospel all around. But through this, our deepest prayer is that if possible God should assist us with one another new borehole there so as to lessen the distances some women are covering to get good water.

We went to see where some are getting their water, but we were very saddened. People are getting water from swamps and dambos, streams and river banks which are very not safe and with unclear (dark color). The water are also very salty and very contaminated with various water borne diseases.

So if asked concerning the need we have, please, if possible, assist us with just one more borehole. People`s lives are at risk to having deadly water borne diseases as well as their marriages collapsing. Through this ministry The Fellowship will continue making great impact in the more villages through borehole ministry. When women are coming for drawing water at the same time they will be hearing the message of the Kingdom of God. This is rain season and the waters the people use are direct waters from the streams and rivers and our worry is that cholera, bilharzia and Dysentery do claim lives such a as this as compared to any of the whole year.

We desperately need urgent assistance, and we plead with you to stand with us in prayers. Also continue to pray for our undergoing The Fellowship classes and trainings which we are using your weekly teachings as our training materials. They are good materials and leaders are being transformed everywhere we take the teaching to.

May God continue blessing you and we look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible and again and again.

Next are the emails of photos for the Bibles and Food to the widows who are caring disabled children.

Hello Dear Friends,

While many of you have been receiving our writings for several years, most of you are not aware of the outreach ministry of “A Word for the Gathering Saints”. This outreach ministry has become part of the vital ministry of God in increasing His Kingdom here on earth. Some years ago, God, starting with an invitation to visit Nigeria, begin to open many other doors to the nations of Africa. These nations at this time include visits to Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, and brethren from Nigeria visiting Kenya with many other nations of the world just receiving the writings that we send. These writings, for many, are what they themselves use for teaching and training materials.

The purpose of this letter is to extend an invitation to you in receiving and having an awareness of the outreach ministries as well as an opportunity to support and become a vital part of these ministries. These ministries of God are now affecting each mentioned nation in the establishing of God’s kingdom for their area. In just a few short years, held conventions have resulted in many cities, towns and villages hearing and receiving ministry concerning God’s present-tense kingdom. These places are the results of teaching the native ministries and then God sending them forth to proclaim, “His kingdom is at hand.” Thus, the continual increase in these ministries is determining the need for increased assistance.

The travels made to these countries have resulted in spiritual growth, which creates many needs. Gathering places, while some gather outside without buildings, are a need. Some have older buildings in need of repair to accommodate the increase (while being happy with what they already have, increase is demanding repair). This also includes personal needs for ministry and family because of the increase of their outreach ministries. In Uganda, a school for orphans is in need of much repair or the government is threatening to shut them down. To help in Uganda they started a local bank, established by the ministry, with just a few local dollars to help supply and meet needs. (This need only brings in about $80.00 or $100.00 per month to help pay teachers and feed the children). This school is the only available teaching tool and meals for these orphans; it remains their only source of security.

In Malawi, a training center is the results as many young men and women attend and receive training concerning the Word of God with emphases placed upon going into the entire nation proclaiming, “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. These students are immediately taking that which is spiritually enlightened and received back to their own villages. The results are groups of people now established in their villages with places of ministry and worship available where there was none. These students, as they go into the bush country villages with the gospel, they are seeing God manifest Himself among the people with signs, wonders, and supernatural expressions. In some cases, spiritual darkness and its ministers of darkness (witch doctors) are forsaking their old ways and turning to the ways of God. These are also testifying of forsaking the using of curses, even unto death upon people, and now proclaim God as becoming their God.

Also, three young men, attending the training center of Malawi, students from Mozambique returned to Mozambique where they began spreading the gospel of the Kingdom of God. This resulted in them calling Charles (a native minister from Malawi who heads up the ministry in Malawi) to come with a team for a weekend meeting. This resulted in such a large attendance of people who accepted the message ministered, creating a need that they eventually had to find a place for regular meetings in Mozambique. This resulted in many coming and receiving training as they are now going forth to their own areas in ministering God’s kingdom. Because of such response among these people, the need for a meeting place and a training center became necessary. How and what did they do? By hand, they began forming mud bricks to erect a structure for their meetings. In this, a need arose for a needed roof to keep them in the dry. Through prayer and hard work, God supplied according to the need. They now have an enclosed building used for meetings and their training center.

Meanwhile, also in Malawi and Mozambique a continual need exist. Beyond a need for ministering God’s Word, a great need is food for orphans as well as others. Another pressing need is the need to enable them to purchase Bibles for the ministers and students. They are able to purchase Bibles in their own language for $10.00 per bible. This purchase price is much cheaper than sending them from the USA. While among them, when handing out Bibles, their expressions express gratitude with much thankfulness because many have never owned a Bible. Many have never hoped for such a gift but now they own one. Also, the need exist for bicycles among them as a form of transportation. I was told, in talking with some of these ministers, they would walk up to ten miles or more one way to minister and then have to walk back home. In this God has supplied some with bicycles for their ministry and journey. When told of this, I asked myself, would I walk ten miles just to preach and then be willing to walk back home? What about you, would you walk miles to minister and help God’s people?

In supplying the training centers with materials needed to help in teaching the truth of God’s kingdom, God has enabled us in writing and sending them lessons needed for instructions that aid them in their teaching. They receive the teachings, print them for the students and pass them out for each to receive necessary instructions that are in agreement with God’s Word. This likewise becomes an expense and an additional burden to prepare the material for the many students. Friends, the events and increase among all these people is phenomenal as the light of God’s kingdom is shining and these natives are hearing, receiving and going among the harvest field gathering up the harvest.

In the countries named, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda, Kenya and now Southern Sudan, they are very poor countries. These countries are in great need with some having wars, but they remain willing to be and go as they are constantly responding to God sending them. While, in my heart, a great burden exist for other parts of the world as well, these mentioned countries are actively participating with continual increase, having a vital existing need for increased help, as they minister God’s kingdom in each area. While having many needs they simply remain faithful to what little they do have? Can we help?

Please consider before God what He might have you do in the area where the need is so great and God is using them with tremendous success. God, in reaching the native people is using them as He raises them up. Meanwhile, many more doors are opening for us but we can no longer go it alone. In this, most of you have received the writings, the teaching materials for quite some time. Therefore, you know the message of the kingdom of God we write about and send around the world to most every country while reaching many peoples and nations. These many in training use the writings as teaching tools while gaining understanding of God’s present day word and revelation. In this, we shall continue to write and go as God so sends. Will you be willing to help?

Note that offerings of help which are sent and that which is received while on ministry trips go completely and totally to support these outreaches. Therefore, if you so desire to be a part of the increasing ministry of this great work of God send your support to:

While there are many other successful and manifesting stories that we could share, I ask you to forgive the length of this report. While, having never asked for support in this manner, the increase and continual opening of other doors are requiring a need for steadfast help in fulfilling those many opportunities. In this, I thank you and ask that you also check out our web site.

I live only because of Christ in me as we minister the cross of Christ that makes available full salvation that also establishes His Kingdom here on earth.
