What Most Malawians Don’t Know About Scotland

David Livingstone
It is a given fact that most Malawians are fully aware of the wonderful spiritual heritage that Malawi has received from Scotland through Dr. David Livingstone who was the first missionary to come to Malawi.  Later, through his efforts and appeals to Christians back in Scotland, many of them (especially college students), followed his steps to Africa where they laid their lives down for the Lord, His Gospel and His people in Malawi.  As a Malawian I am humbled by this and I give praise, glory and honor for such men as David Livingstone and his colleagues for their passion and commitment to see the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ spread to my home country.  Through their sacrifices people like me have received and are now experience salvation from sin and its eternal consequences and have come to know Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of our lives.  To Him be all the praise, glory and honor now and forevermore!  Amen!

Perspectives on the World Christian Movement

I praise the Lord to have had the privilege of teaching the first Perspectives class that our church is hosting here in New Westminster.  It was indeed a great joy and privilege.  About 16 students turned up for the first class – four short of the 20 that we hope to have.  So, if you know anyone in the area who needs to take Perspectives, please send them to:  701 Sixth St, New Westminster, BC where the course is being hosted – or have them contact Sharon Walraven at:  swalraven@outreach.ca or call her at:  604.952.0050 ext. 322.  Note:  Each class will be held on Monday from 7-10 pm except for the Thanksgiving weekend.  The class will meet on Friday, October 18 (7:00 pm–10:00 pm) and Saturday, October 19 (9:30 am–4:30 pm).

This class is so wonderful and unique in so many ways in comparison to the classes that my wife and I attended.  This class is full of young people and that is very exciting to me.  I pray that the Lord will take hold of the lives of these young people and prepare them for greater usefulness in His Kingdom here in Canada and around the world.  Please join me in praying for this.
I am very thankful that our small congregation could be given such a great opportunity and privilege to host this wonderful course.  To God be the glory!  Please keep praying for this course over the next 14 weeks as the LORD prompts you by His Spirit.  Thank you!
