Sisters' Fellowship in Namwala
Sisters in Monze–Mazabuka Apostle Area met in Namwala from July 15 – 17, 2016, for this year’s Apostle Area sisters' fellowship and raised K121, 172.
This particular event was organised to raise funds among others to enable sisters participate in the annual “International Sisters Fellowship” scheduled for Mzuzu in Malawi from 26th to 28th August 2016. Sisters from Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe are expected to attend.
The proceeds raised in Namwala would be used to construct the Apostle Area conference room and buying of roofing materials for eight (8) churches in the Apostle Area.
The climax of the fellowship was a divine service which was conducted by area Apostle, Edwin Kasamu at Baambwe Congregation. Jude 5 was used as the text;
“For even though you know all this, I want to remind you of how the Lord once rescued the people of Israel from Egypt, but afterwards destroyed those who did not believe.”
A total of 1, 949 sisters attended the fellowship. Of these sisters only 300 were expected to travel to Malawi for the International Sisters' Fellowship.
The International Sisters' Fellowship is also used as a forum on which to enlighten the attendees about the New Apostolic Church doctrine and other Spiritual matters. It must be noted that sisters in the New Apostolic Church, especially in District 28 (Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe) play a significant role in uplifting God’s work. Various projects are successful on account of their work and sacrifice.
Over 7, 000 sisters from Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe are this year expected to meet for the Annual International Sisters’ Fellowship in to be held in Malawi.
