Sisters Fellowship donate to inmates

By Shardrick Wilima in Luanshya


Part of the members that accompanied Apostle Mwansa to Luanshya Correctional Facility on May 5, 2018ABOUT 185 brothers and sisters from Luanshya braved the rains to attend a special fellowship with Prisoners at Luanshya Correctional Facility on 5 May 2018.


Area Apostle Jacob Mwansa graced the occasion accompanied by Bishop Mwiya and District Ministers.


 The Apostle based the fellowship on a text from Matthew 10:5-6:


“These twelve, Jesus sent forth, and commanded them saying, ’Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel’.”


Apostle Mwansa assured the inmates that even in their state, the love of God still covers them. He referred to the words of Jesus when he said, ‘I was in prison, you visited Me,’ as the main reason for the visit.


At the end of the fellowship, the Apostle handed over assorted items valued at over K5,000.00 which was contributed by the Sisters’ fellowship.


Some of the items donated to inmates at Lusanshya Correctional Facility by New Apostolic Church Sisters’ FellowshipIn receiving the items, Sub Inspector Mufunta, who represented the Chaplain, expressed gratitude over the gesture by the New Apostolic Church.


One prisoner, who spoke on behalf of the 350 inmates at the facility, thanked the Apostle and the Church at large and asked them to continue praying for them.


The Prisoners’ choir was on hand to render praise songs, much to the delight of the visitors.


This is the second time Apostle Mwansa has conducted such a fellowship with prisoners, the first one having been at Ndola’s Kansenshi Prison in 2017.
