Southern African Conference
Every April, we have a regional conference to graduate Bible college students and welcome Pastor Scibelli and guests who travel with him. This year we had the honor of hosting our brothers and sisters from all our Southern African churches. Usually the conference takes place in Zambia, but this year it was changed to Malawi. It was amazing to receive the amount of visitors coming on a very short notice. Many came at a great sacrifice since only a few of them have formal employment. For many, just the ticket is a month or two of income.
We had visitors from Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Congo, South Africa, China, France and USA. It was amazing seeing the Zams and Zims coming in on their big coach buses to hear great messages and have great fellowship.
There were so many memorable moments, but two that stood out were the leadership meeting before the conference. It was an intimate time of questions and answers with Pastor Scibelli. The second was our ordination service. It was so encouraging to see two Malawian leaders Pastor Yamikani and Pastor Malrone ordained. These men have been so faithful and such a help.
Prayer for Malawi
Another amazing time of fellowship was a prayer crusade with people from all different churches. About 1,500 people gathered to pray for our churches and the country of Malawi. –The Arman Family
