Q1

Why did you decide to become a pastor?

It was 2002, when God called me to minister. As of now, I’m ministering almost 14 years. It’s a passion. Before I received Jesus, I did a lot of things. I was a womanizer. I was in a tribe. When I received Jesus Christ as a personal Savior, I had a passion for people. I have a compassion for lost people. Because of that passion, I decide to minister to them.

Q2

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

It was last year when I heard of this school. When I heard it, I researched it what they do at this school. When I saw that they were emphasizing their preaching. I’m not an engineer, or a teacher. I am a pastor. I am supposed to preach to people. To have that skill is very vital. I heard that CAPA was emphasizing preaching. As a pastor, I must preach.

Q3

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

I am a pastor of a church and ministering for 13 years. Currently, I’m at Church of Number Three.

I have a plan to go on with ministering. It is my desire to reach the unreachable people in our nation and even the outside of the nation. My plan is to preach until Jesus Christ comes.

Q4

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

There is a lot of challenges because I’m a minister in a remote area where people have low understanding because of education. It’s very difficult. I thank God, because by and by, we saw the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. People are preaching the Word of God there. For this school, to come and equip me. There is a challenge for understanding people because of the level of education.

I need patience. Without patience, you can’t move. Because of patience and God was faithful to me, I’m still preaching there. God is able to do anything.

Q5

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

I heard this name in 1994. A sudden day, somebody called me to attend to a certain fellowship. It’s where I heard the message. This was a Sunday in June 1994. There were things which convicted me. The verse which was preached was John 3:16. So after I heard that, I decided to receive Him.

Q6

What is your favorite thing about Malawi?

There is a lot of things. It is a nation which we have opportunity to preach the Word of God. There are some nations which preaching the Word of God is a limitation. Here in limitation, we have a freedom to preach everywhere. The opportunity to preach to every tribe.

Q7

What is one of your favorite verses and why?

Matthew 5:8. That is my favorite verse in the Bible because when we are doing good things, when we are being righteous, we’ll see God. We can do everything, we can do everything in this world. One of the things that is very important is to see God internally. I also like John 14:1. Because everything that is desirable today, it belongs to God. When we trust in Him, when we meet with Him, everything is possible to ask.

Q8

What are ways we can be praying for you?

I would love if it’s possible to pray for my ministry. There is a lot of challenges. We could pray that anything is possible. I want to see God do greater things in my area. You can also pray for my family. My first born is studying Form 1. My prayer request is that my family be having resources to train my children and myself.
