Thank you for your continuing prayers for Rose and me.
Friday 2nd we were notified of the death of Bishop Patrick Kasyanju’s son. The funeral was on Sunday afternoon 4th May at Bishop Kasyanju’s home. Bishop Robert Chidundo was the MC. He invited me to pray to open the service and to pray for all the proceedings. A few minutes later he came and said to me that we should be ready in season and out of season and was I ready to bring the Word of God; I said I was ( the bishop who was to bring the Word of God had a problem and could not come).
I had no time to prepare or think as Bishop Chidundo went straight back to the mic and announced I was coming to bring the Word of God. Pastor Chipamba interpreted for me. I began in John 14: 1-3 and then I repeated Jesus’ words in John 11 when he spoke with Martha. “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me though he die yet shall he live” I was able to bring words of comfort to the family and a gospel presentation to the non-Christians present. God truly helped me and powerfully blessed His Word.
Sunday Morning I stood to bring the Word of God based from Jesus’ words to Peter “strengthen your brethren”. I spoke in Swahili and made the appeal for those who needed to be strengthened in their walk with God and three came forward. Rose was ministering with the choir – what a blessing they all were.
On Saturday night I received a call to bring the Word of God on Monday 5 th May at the Pastors Fellowship Meeting. I brought the Word in Swahili about God shaking us and stirring our hearts. Pastors were very pleased with the Word and for the fact I spoke in Swahili.
Tonight, Friday 9 May, I will be leading the Prayer Meeting and bringing a short word in Swahili “kwa utukufu Mungu” – ” To the Glory of God”.
Greetings from Rose.
May God continue to bless you in your walk with Jesus.
James and Rose
