From Chairman Simeon Strauser: Continue reading
For the FGA-Malawi church at Matindi, it was a sad day when the church building was destroyed in the 2019 cyclone. It was a storm that brought heavy winds, flooding and widespread devastation, affecting over 2 million people across Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
As this building sat in ruins, the prayers of God’s people were being raised up for the provisions for a complete rebuilding. The vision was that this rural location would someday be utilized for a combined purpose for a local congregation and a PST study center for the training of pastors and leadership for the Malawian rural communities.
Rejoicing in the Miracle
It was then in late April, that the Lord spoke to the leadership team of Dayna’s iCare Foundation (DIF) out of Pennsylvania to contribute for the building of a FG church (by DIF) and a Malawian school site for pastoral training on behalf of the late Dr. Webster Fitzgerald, uncle to Minister Dayna Spence, and an educator himself.
Connecting with Full Gospel Assemblies central office, Dayna Spence, president of DIF, and team, were made aware of this on going prayer for the Matindi location. The leading of the Holy Spirit for this need was a true miracle and right on time! Within two weeks, the site grounds were cleared and new construction begun. DIF will be supporting the building of the church / school building and the home for the new pastor. Photos of the ‘in progress’ work show the enthusiasm to have this project completed and open for use for the training of Pastors and Church leaders in the coming term. To God be all the glory!
Will You Help To Now Furnish This School and Church?
In addition to being utilized as a venue for congregational worship, this site will jointly serve as the Phrear School of Theology Matindi Campus, dedicated for training Pastors and leadership, accessible from the rural areas outside of the city of Blantyre. The building site sits at the front of a humble rural community, easily accessible from the surfaced road. It will be fully utilized as a strategic center for Full Gospel Assemblies – Malawi. What is now needed for the opening of this church and school site is interior finishing, grounds, some 40 chairs, tables, white boards, and various student needs for an anticipated 30+ pastoral candidate students beginning fall 2020. Will you prayerfully consider joining in, in making this miracle a full reality for this coming term? Please contact FG / PST central offices for more information on how you can be a blessing for the generations to come.
