Local leaders empowered in Malawi!
Vibrant faith communities following Jesus in their own distinctive ways. That's our vision. And that's what we're seeing in Malawi among the Yawo.
Intercultural workers Melanie and Tim have known Doabu* for a couple of years now. Two years ago, they baptised him. Thanks to the partnership of people like you, they’ve been able to spend time discipling him.
It recently came to the point where Doabu was ready to lead a Bible Study. He was nervous to do this because God’s Word is important to him. So, the week before the study, he chose a passage of Scripture. From Ezekiel! Every night that week he read it. Praying that God would give him something to share.
And God did give Doabu something to share. Doabu sat with his wife beside him. And 20 other Yawo believers and seekers listening to him! This is such a milestone. Doabu was sharing God’s Word. In his village. In his language. In his culture.
Tim shared, “I’d been feeding this group for so long. Now I was being fed the Word of God. And in front of everyone, I told him that I couldn’t have been prouder.” This is the goal of your partnership with intercultural workers. This is the vision. God’s used your generosity and prayers to meet the vision.
And as Tim says, “That’s what’s happening here in Malawi. Local believers rising up. Doing what they believe God has called them to do. Sharing the Kingdom in their culture.”
God has brought supporters like you, together with Tim and Melanie, to help raise up people like Doabu.
*For the protection of local believers and Global Interaction's ongoing ministry, Doabu is not his real name.
