How did you decide to come to CAPA?
Yeah, I came to know the Lord, it was visiting a friend. It was in 1997, introduced me to the
Lord. […] I was feeling I can, I should do preach, I should do God’s work, so I quit the job. Eh,
however, my family criticized me to say, “Why are you leaving job while going to this?” Which
shows there’s no money; because here in Malawi, pastors are taken to be poor people. So… I
was criticized, my family criticized me, my uncles criticized me, why, why I quit the job, and
I’ve started to do this. Yeah, so… but because it’s what I wanted.
I still left the job, but fortunately enough I found the, a vacancy to this school, so I applied. Yeah.
So they took me, 2015. 2015. I did my diploma class 2015. Yeah. I’ve got the diploma already of
this class I’m doing. So… they advertised the bachelor’s, and the master’s, and diploma, so I
applied for bachelor’s. So they took me. Yeah. So I’m in that class for my bachelor’s. Yeah,
that’s why I’m here. I’m here for bachelor’s because I already have the diploma. Yeah.
So… the only challenge is that in 2015, 2016, there was no class. We were out. We just staying.
Yeah, so… I was asked to say, “If we say you go, and you come next year, it means the gap will
be big [because it will have been too many years between the diploma and Master of Divinity
degrees].” So that’s why I’m [here].
How did you find out about CAPA?
Yes, I found it in the newspaper. It was advertised in the newspaper, so I applied. […] Then I
met Pastor [Gideon] Manda, yeah. So he explained, and I was encouraged to come. Yeah. So
because of this diploma class, which I did, I’m very much motivated to do another class because
I don’t want to go to—to have another school, a different doctrine, I don’t want that. I want to
concentrate with this one, and to where I can finish. Yeah.
