Ministry Update: August 2018

Robbie has had great opportunities to preach the Word in a number of churches of different sizes and denominational affiliations, and in different locations over the past weeks.  It has been a real encouragement to see the Holy Spirit working in His people and drawing others to Himself.

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:10-11).

Big thanks to all who have contributed to the work of Beracah Support Ministry recently:

It is exciting to report that Pastor Innocent Wachimwa, who was a former student at EBCOM, now a senior lecturer and key figure, has registered for  Master of Divinity Degree through The CCAP (Church of Africa Presbyterian) Synod University in Blantyre.  He thanks Beracah for helping him to get going… Thank God too that someone has already come in to cover the remainder of his first semester fees.

Pastor Chikondi Tamaona has arrived in California, USA to begin a Masters Degree in Theology at the International Theological Seminary.  He thanks God for those who contributed towards visa, flight tickets and accommodation en route.  Pray for provision for his first semester accommodation and food (not included in the scholarship) and for the Lord to meet all the needs of his family while he is away.  

Pastor LLoyd Kaumphawi has begun his final semester of a Bachelor of Theology at George Whitefield College in Cape Town.  He is very grateful for the generous financial support taking him this far. Please pray that he will complete the course and for finances to cover his final semester.

We thank God for the recent election of Pastor Bison James to the office of General Secretary of the Zambesi Evangelical Church.  He has recently registered for the fourth module, ‘Professional Development’, of his Master of Business Administration Degree, through UNICAF.  He thanks Beracah for the ongoing sponsorship enabling him to do these studies.  Please pray for him as he juggles leadership of a denomination with family responsibilities and personal studies.

Give praise for the recent leadership seminars that Pastor Peter Dick was able to conduct with rural pastors and church leaders in Mocambique.  He thanks God for the provision of finances to do that.  Pray for the provision of a small motorbike for him, to enable him to visit and encourage the seven churches dependent on him, more regularly.

We also give thanks for the many smaller contributions that Robbie has been able to make to pastors over the last couple of months, covering a variety of needs, including: school fees for children, bags of maize, debt relief, outstanding rent etc.  Pastors here in Malawi face many challenges.  They are immensely grateful for any support that they receive.

If you would like to help met any of the ongoing needs mentioned above or just to make a general contribution to the work of supporting pastors here in Malawi please contact Robbie (thebeatons28@yahoo.com).  We are very grateful to those who already support this work in various ways, but we are praying for more mission partners who will stand with us, by providing the necessary resources to bless God’s servants.
