District Apostle Charles Ndandula arriving at Lilongwe Central on October 29, 2017During the meeting, crosscutting issues relating to church were discussed. The peak of the meeting was a Divine Service on Sunday, October 29, 2017, conducted by District Apostle Charles S. Ndandula at Lilongwe Central Congregation area 14. 2 Kings 5:14 was used as text word:

“So he went and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of the little child, and he was clean.”


During the service, District Apostle Ndandula told the members that sin separates man from God.


“Dear brothers and sisters, our text refers to Naaman, who was the commander of the army in Syria. Naaman suffered from Leprosy. In our time, leprosy can be likened to sin, sin separates us from God. But after being helped by the prophet (Elisha), Naaman was healed! Elisha is a symbol of the redeemer, Jesus is our redeemer!” he said.


District Apostle Ndandula also encouraged the members to persevere as they wait for the return of the Redeemer.


Part of the congregation during a divine service conducted by District Apostle Charles Ndandula at Lilongwe Central on October 29, 2017“Dear brothers and sisters, Naaman dipped seven times into river Jordan, he persevered to do this, although they had better rivers where he came from (Israel). He did not dip himself twice or three times, but seven times and thus he persevered. Let us also persevere in our faith, we will pass through trials, tribulations and temptations, but let us remain faithful and obedient to the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Lord is coming,” he said. 


The District Apostle further urged the members to be of help to one another.

“As you may be aware, next Sunday we will participate in the divine service for the departed. Our role should not only be to intercede for the dead, but let us also profess that Jesus is the Lord for the living and the dead and that salvation is for all, the living and the dead. The young woman from Israel, who although torn from her family, she preserved her faith and wanted to help even those who kept her captive.

"Despite passing through trials and tribulations, we must keep our trust in our Redeemer; profess our faith, desire salvation for our neighbour, including those in yonder world, even those neighbours who have done harm to us,” he said.

2,800 members attended the service.
