Q1

Why did you decide to come to CAPA? What is one thing you hope to learn at CAPA?

I was told by a friend of mine who is a pastor that CAPA is there to train the pastors so that we can preach and teach God’s Word. I want to be trained in the Word of God so I can empower other people outside with the Word of God. CAPA will help me to equip and give me good material to do the will of the Lord. I hope that I will learn to represent the Word of God, to exposit the Word of God the right way and correct way.

Q2

What is your current ministry? What are your future ministry plans?

My current ministry? [laughs]] It’s wonderful, it’s good. In my church, I do teach the Word of God, it’s a Sunday school class. I teach the Word. I evangelize in the market place, in the hospital, wherever opportunities there, I evangelize.

Yes, the future’s there, but I’m still seeking the Lord for the right direction. I want to be somewhere and stay there 3 or 4 years, training people, teaching the Word of God, empowering the people with the Word of God, then I go somewhere else, stay there 3 or 4 years, then empower the Word of God. I want to impact the Word of God into the life of man. I want to evangelize and empower more people to come to church. I want to be a missionary.

Q3

What are challenges you’ve faced in ministry, and what have you learned from them?

I’m a young person, I’m a young man. You see a lot of people who have been in the ministry for a long time, they despise us, the upcoming ministers. One of the challenges there is that they despise you. Another challenge is as you live in this world, I’m still a young man, as I say. My fellow youth say, “It’s not good [to be in ministry], you’re still young.” That can discourage you.

I’ve learned to trust, to put my 100% faith in God, and even trust in myself that something good can come up.

Q4

How did you first hear about Jesus? How did you come to believe He died for your sins?

I first heard about Him because I used to go to church because my parents used to go. But I hadn’t made the right decision to believe the Lord. I had not yet had Christ in my heart. So until that day, I was converted by the Spirit of God. I remember the year, 2006, when I was in secondary school, I received Him, somebody told me about Jesus, I had a conviction. Someone led me to Christ, and I professed Him as my Lord and Savior.

Q5

What is your favorite thing about Malawi?

[laughs]] Malawi’s good, Malawi’s cool. We’re in the heart of Africa. It’s a good place because missionaries from all over the world come and evangelize, and teach people about God. We have lakes and mountains, one of my favorites to see in this nation.

Q6

What is one of your favorite verses and why?

One of my favorite verses is 2 Corinthians 5:17. Another one is 2 Corinthians 5:14. Now I am a Christian, I no longer live for myself. I live for Jesus who died for me. I like those verses because they show me my identity in Him, that before, I was a sinner. Now because I have received Him, Christ does not count my sins. I will not walk in former condemnation. Christ must be my Lord, and He should control my life.

Q7

What are ways we can be praying for you?

Pray for me for the guidance of the Lord in my future for ministry. Pray that the Lord should open doors, whether it’s financial doors, so that I could proceed to do school. Pray for the grace of the Lord, so I will not depart from Christ, so that I can stand in faith.
