In Service

In our diocese we have the order of Sister of St. Mary. Their main duty is to pray for our diocese, the church, nations and to take care of the needy. They have a maize and Irish potato garden, they keep goats, sheep and chickens. They also conduct a business of tailoring which is one way of self support.

Anglican News From Northern Malawi

Finally this is where we are with the hymn books.

We are releasing 500 books to each Diocese.

However we appologise because we have not managed to print on the cover page "Mapemphero ndi Nyimbo Za Ecclesia".

We currently don't have the machine to do that. We will need about 22,000 South African Rends about ($2200) minus shipping. Please be patient with us for God has not yet finished working with us. We are just growing and next time we will manage to do more than that.

Anglican Diocese of Northern MalawiJust an explanation on this hymn book. We had a lot of work to be done. You will see that this book has a three year cycle lectionary then the single one. We will have years A,B and C like we do with prayers. These readings are what you can get in a world wide Church as you know it's a Universal Church. We also had to type the whole book since we did not have a master copy which we now have. Yes we do not yet have the do do do software as such the hymns don't have the notes. We are still improving our system as they say Mwachaje satafuna. What's the English of that saying.2 weeks ago ago

08/02/15: Confirmation at Mchengabutuwa. It was a wonderful service. The best candidates so far. They went through the Catechism and they were able to explain it before their confirmation. It was wonderful. They had a fasting and prayer day before confirmation in readiness for their Holy Spirit encounter. ... ExpandHide

It's not a night shift but but this team of young people and their Priest from Msuli Parish volunteered to work in the print shop collating the Hymn and Prayer Book. They have started working since morning only resting for meals. It's now 9:19 pm and they don't seem to retire. I am very humbled by their dedication. ... ExpandHide

9/11/14: We give thanks to God for his gift to us. He has given us two deacons. They always remind us that we are slaves of our master. We were also privileged to welcome the Bishop of Johansburge who was our preacher. He and other team members have been a blessing to us during this SOMA mission. We are currently on the clergy conference. Pray for our clergy to receive the blessing of the God to continue their ministry in a special way. ... ExpandHide
