Members of the Providence Industrial Mission (PIM) church in Blantyre, Mwanza and Neno last Sunday offered gifts to Saint Morris PIM Church, Blantyre City 2 resident pastor, the Reverend Frank Kanchiga.
The gesture was aimed at enhancing pastors’ ministry in the districts and to manifest God’s glory for His love and mercies upon His people.
Chairperson for pastors’ welfare in the district, Stewart Muyaya, said he was pleased to note that Christians have embraced to giving culture to support pastors in their endeavours.
The offertory netted K475 175 and various gifts in kind.
In an interview last Sunday at Saint Morris in Blantyre, during pastors’ day function, Muyaya said he was thankful for members’ support to their pastors because by doing that, it would help the ministry to reach out to greater heights.
“Giving always builds strong foundation for abundant blessings. We praise God that many Christians have massively contributed to the welfare despite numerous challenges in the households. This is the greatest moment to test the person’s confidence in the care of
Jesus Christ because giving becomes the foundation of people’s faith and confidence in Him. So, the aid will also help change pastors’ status quo when propagating the Gospel,” said Muyaya.
He, however, wished the newly elected President Lazarus Chakwera, good health and wisdom from God. He said it is God who puts leaders in various positions; hence, they require love, humility and perseverance to meet people’s needs effectively and efficiently.
Saint John PIM Church pastor at Kanjedza, the Reverend Austin Nangoma said was grateful for Christians’ oneness in aiding pastors to fulfill God’s mission.
On his part, Reverend Kanchiga hailed pastors and the faithful for the support rendered towards his ministry.
