BIBLE BELIEVERS INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION MALAWI 2016

INTRODUCTION
JESUS.ON.THE.AUTHORITY.OF.THE.WORD_  WOOD.RIVER.IL  WEDNESDAY_  54-0217
  E-6 ……”A very beautiful sign of the end of the Gentiles' age. God will return to the Jews now. The Gentile Church will be sealed away, finished, go out.”
From the very humblest of beginnings the message in Malawi was established in the early 1980’s by Canadian Brothers who had felt the call to bring the message to this African Country. Since then the message has passed through times of trial through various doctrines that threatened to shake its very foundations. However, as the Prophet determined, “I will ride this trail again”, she has persevered on, holding the fort with valiant hands of faith as the word said, …to deceive the very elected IF it was possible.  But we are so glad that the elect will cannot be deceived.
Of late the message has been misconstrued through various doctrines that have been injected and have led some into delusion. However, through the support from the Church in Edmonton, we have witnessed the rebirth of the unadulterated message of the hour being preached without gloves from a burden of purity to a hungry bride in Malawi. We have witnessed the return of whole message churches back to the faith that the Fathers once had.
It has always been a blessing to be under the full word of God as the year comes to a close. We therefore sincerely appreciate the support from the church in Edmonton.
CONVENTION MEETINGS
The meetings took place in Thyolo District at a newly built University, (Must) The Malawi University of Science and Technology main auditorium. This was a special meeting with two guest speakers in attendance; Brother Martin Warner from Edmonton Alberta Canada and Pastor Harold Beckett from Cape Town South Africa. The ministry from these brothers complimented one another and encouraged the bride in Malawi to take a firm stand on the word of God. About 1500 people from across Malawi into parts of Mozambique were in attendance. Many of the people drove for miles just to attend the services whilst some were accommodated in nearby townships and at the University itself. The meetings presented a great time of fellowship around the word of God. The word was expounded around the theme of the end time sign. Many people had questions about the sign of the end. This, coupled with the false doctrines that have flooded the country in recent times, the ministry from these two brethren has assisted to expose the subtle cunningness of the devil’s ruse and many have taken yet a firmer stand on the word of God for this day.

TESTIMONIES
Psalm 79:13
     13    So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
David exalted the Lord and declared the name of the Lord for all his goodness. So we like him, will never stop to praise the name of Lord and give him thanks for all he has done in our generation! We will declare it to all generations.
The convention itself was a miracle worth mentioning from all aspects of preparation to the end. It was a special time that we witnessed true oneness amongst brethren from various churches working together towards making the meetings a success as never seen before. People gave in their talent, skills and hard work to see the meetings off to a good start and end well. People travelled for miles just to be in attendance where the Lord was speaking to his bride. The sermons that were preached were so befitting to the present state of the message in Malawi. It was evident to see that many people had been blessed by the ministry of Brother Martin and Pastor Harold. Truly their coming was timely and had not been in vain. At the end of the meetings, the Lord had given travelling mercies to his bride from all walks of life. We neither heard that any individual was involved in an accident nor that they had found their homes disrupted in any way. The Lord had offered protection for all our assets and our lives.
A personal testimony from Sister Gloria Msungeni, Brother Dyson’s wife, the daughter of brother Dixon Kandoje was one of the many solid proofs that the Lord was in our midst. She had gone to the meetings with a burden on her heart for her younger brother who was by that time in Ireland. He had been denied travel documents for the third time and his visa was quickly getting to expire which would make him live illegally in the country. Everyone form home knew how dire the situation was. During the first Service after Brother Martin’s sermon, she felt a call to the altar with the same burden. She prayed earnestly for the release of the documents for her brother. Within two days after the prayer, she heard her brother had called that his documents had been issued unexplainably! That is the God we serve. The Holy spirit moved on the saints and most of the congregation came in the prayer line for their deliverance and healing.

PHALOMBE MEETINGS
Around about the time the meetings at (MUST) had ended, Pastor Maluwa from Phalombe scheduled his end of the year meetings at a training college in the district. He and some of the ministers from his church have a ministry in Mozambique where they work with various groups about the message of the hour. Brother Martin had been introduced to him during his previous visits and since then has had the opportunity to minister in his congregation in Mozambique. Brother Martin preached two sermons and also had the privilege to speak to the ministering brothers at a ministerial meetings. It is always a blessing to hear what the Lord has in store for us through the ministry of Brother Martin. The Lord has used the Brother in a mighty way to minister directly to the needs of the brethren. Some of the Ministers in Phalombe had been under the influence of the false doctrines that had flooded Malawi in recent times. But during this meeting, they testified that the Lord had visited them and broke the influences of false doctrine in the country. About a thousand people had gathered from the Satellite churches of Phalombe and some provinces in Mozambique. It was a wonderful time of fellowship around the word of God.

TESTIMONIES

TESTIMONIES
The Phalombe meetings were scheduled right at the time there was unrest in Mozambique due to power struggles within the country. It was uncertain how many of the brethren would make the trip to cross over to Malawi. The mode of transportation had remained bicycles which were the cheapest form, as well as minibuses which were a bit riskier looking at the current situation of violent attacks. Although many of the brethren used bicycles, some still had to use the minibus due to the long trip they had to travel. One testimony from a brother who had travelled by minibus from a distant province was so profound that it was evident the Lord surely protects his own. The combie (Bus) travelled through unfamiliar territory wherein were soldiers in hiding. Upon seeing the vehicle, the soldiers began to open fire on the vehicle carrying civilians. Many of those who were travelling with the Brother had been injured by the shots, but by God’s grace the driver was unharmed and kept accelerating the vehicle. Upon arrival at a place of safety, he stopped to assess the damage and the injuries that had occurred. A few of the people had died, some were injured, but by God’s grace, the brother came out unharmed. God had sent his guarding angel to accompany the brother. Let us continue to pray for our brethren in Mozambique through this hard time of trial. At least 10,000 have sought refugee status in Malawi of which some are believers.
Acts 15: 25  It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mulanje Meetings

It has now been an annual function where at the end of a series of meetings Brother Martin would visit Mulanje Church, the home church of Pastor Marrion Msungeni. Since the past three years, he has visited the church and through the church in Edmonton, they have donated iron sheets for the roof. These meetings are attended by the surrounding satellite churches of Pastor Marrion. Currently Pastor Marrion has satellite churches in Mulanje, Thyolo, Blantyre and Chiradzulu where various ministers preach the unadulterated word of the hour. These meetings have since their establishment strengthened the churches and enabled them to take a firm stand against false doctrines and to confirm the Word of the lord to this generation will vindicate itself as the Absolute to the bride of Jesus Christ . This year’s meetings were a special time where the Lord visited his bride in a very special way. The bride was reminded of the Seven seals, the Final Trumpet and the Voice of the Sign. The Spirit , the Prophet and the Bride will all say the same thing. The spirit of the Lord moved amongst us, as he used the gift in Brother Martin. At the end of the sermon, it was a great time of fellowship and worshipping the Lord in song with some giving there hearts back to the Lord. Truly the Lord has been good to the bride in Malawi.

A HOME VISIT TO BROTHER MIKE STECHI

It was upon the heart of Brother Martin to visit missionary and Brother Mike Stechi who had taken ill with a heart attack and stroke earlier last year. The year 2016 has been a trying time for our Brother who has been through a terrible time last year. He developed stroke, and later lost his Head Deacon through a car accident right at his church as he was assisting him. His son was later locked in prison for alleged manslaughter. Our Precious Brother needs our prayers together with his family. Pastor Marrion has stood with the Brother, sending ministering brothers to his little church and Brother Harrison has personally been assisting him with his personal home needs over the time he has been ill. We also appreciate for the support that the church in Edmonton has rendered to our Brother during the time he has been ill in Hospital. He has since been seeing a physiotherapist and there is some evident improvement on his condition.

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2016

CHIKWAWA MEETINGS

It was earlier in 2016 when through the church at Edmonton we received a tent to assist in the ministry. One of the greatest needs for the missionary work was to have a tent which could be pitched in various locations as a makeshift shelter during meetings. The tent we received was big and provided good coverage from the elements during meetings. It was through these tent meetings that a number of churches have been born in Chikhwawa District, where whole churches have denounced their Pentecostal teachings and adopted the message of the hour. Over 500 people have been baptized through the tent ministry, with many more strengthened in the faith.
During his visit, Brother Martin took the opportunity to visit one local church in Chikhwawa and hold tent meetings there. There was a tremendous response form the brethren. Brother Mike Stechi was also in attendance during the meetings. He visited one of the churches that the Church in Edmonton had assisted with a corrugated iron sheet roof. From this small area, many people have embraced the message of the hour.

Ministerial Meetings
 

In 2016 Brother Harrison felt a burden to establish ministerial meetings every months end as a means of sharing experiences with fellow ministers. They have also been pillars of strength for New ministers who have recently believed the message of the hour and are seeking to know the truth that they have believed. The meetings have been patronized by brethren from many churches and every month the number of ministers attending has grown. They have provided a good time of fellowship around the word of God and have seen some ministers who would have been following false doctrines take a fresh stand on the word of God.
Tent Meetings
This is one on the Pentecostal church that has embraced  and recently believed the message. The brothers and sister are fellowshipping under the tree. It was a blessing to have a tent. Brother Harrison is requesting saints that can contribute the construction of a small church within the range of 3000 to 5000 dollars.
This church has left their main denominational donors in the USA after seeing the light of this day and choose to believe this message. Most of the children here have no parents hence the pastor of this group supports the orphan children with the aid he gets from brother Harrison.
We have so far  listed  5 new groups and 2 ministers who travel to these churches to minister the Message of the hour, that need urgent support, it is our prayer that God will place a burden upon brothers and sisters hearts that can support the work here.

During Christmas day service Brother Martin gave some sweets (gifts) to believers children and most orphan children after the service. This was a precious moment for these children as they felt the parental love from our precious humble brother . These children have never experienced or receive any attention of this kind. They pray to see him again.
