These past few months have really “Broken Open,” as one brother mentioned in years past. God is doing amazing things using us as vessels. At the beginning of March, our church wasn’t sure if we would have a place to meet.
Six days before our lease was due to renew, our landlord for the church tripled the rent. That sent us to our knees in desperate search to find a new location. As is His custom, God came through and we found a hall down the road triple the size of the place we used to rent at only a fraction more than we normally pay.
Grace Moments Radio program is going strong with Matt Sliva as our engineer and our panel of pastors which is broadcast once a week around the whole country. We are getting a great response with questions being texted to us from people in the North and South of the Country.
Our vision is to deal with pertinent, controversial topics that people are dealing with in their everyday lives. This particular station is one that plays hit songs and broadcasts sporting events. We believe that we can touch an audience that may not normally attend a church service but will hear the Gospel on radio.
Malawi Conference 2016 was another significant event marking the continuation of God’s faithfulness to the work in Malawi. Pastor Steven Scibelli, the Missions Director of Greater Grace Church, was the guest speaker for the conference and graduation. Fifty students graduated with either a two-year certificate or three-year diploma. More than 300 people were in attendance, filling the hall to maximum capacity. It was a great celebration as we watched God promote many young men and women in the faith.
The graduation session was the best attended and most memorable. Pastor Scibelli preached a message from Luke 4:36 called “What a Word,” which got the whole audience chanting the same phrase signifying that God has an amazing word for every situation in our lives.
Thank you for your prayers. God is doing a lot in short periods of time. We ask for more prayers as we travel to Zambia for the annual Zamcon conference and are joined by brothers from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, and United States.
God Bless You,
The Arman Family
