Do you have any other prayer requests?
Another prayer request is concerning my dad because my mom is saved, but my dad is not yet
saved. Yeah, and it is my prayer that, by God’s grace, that he come to the saving knowledge of
Jesus Christ because he is not yet saved.
Was your mom saved before you were?
No, [smiles] I was saved, and God used me to save—to lead her to Jesus. Yes.
When I was saved, by that time, even my mom and dad, they used to go to church. Even myself,
[although] I used to go to church, I was not born again. So…when I told them that I’m saved,
they didn’t understand because they were going to church, I was also going to church, so they
didn’t understand the meaning of being born again. So they were angry at me, and they even told
me that I should leave the house.
In the church that I was going at that particular moment, they didn’t believe in second birth.
Yeah, so once they heard that you are born again, they considered you as someone who has lost
his mind, and they would even excommunicate you from the church. Yeah, so it’s what
happened; and my parents, they were angry, and they didn’t want even me to be staying in their
house. But I started praying for them.
After a year, then they accepted that I was born again because they have also seen a change even
in my speech, even in my lifestyle. Then I proposed if we could have a Bible study, which they
accepted. We started that Bible study in their home. Then my mom and dad, and even brother
and sisters, they were attending that Bible study, and it was through that Bible study that my
mother, my brothers, and my sisters got born again. Yeah.
What is your current relationship with your dad? Do you still have those Bible studies?
Yeah; at the moment, because he stays up in the North, and I’m here in the central region, we
just communicate on the phone. Yeah, he’s in the northern part of Malawi—it’s where he’s
working at the moment.
