Even a drop of water is a blessing Sonjela’s smile speaks volumes.

Mission: Malawi 2019

Lifting eyes to the mountain Picture 19 students sitting in the dark on five chairs and two benches built for perhaps eight bottoms. They are squeezed together, but without complaint. Instead, they are enthusiastically answering questions about the Bible. “What do we learn about God?” they are asked after reading Scripture. “He is a God of love,” one student says, “because He could have killed the devil from the start.” There is laughter. The students are enjoying the lesson, never mind the tight quarters. Or the darkness. There are no cushioned seats. ... Read more »

Ngoni people standing up for Jesus. (Photos by Damson Samson) Uncovering sin among the Ngoni Damson Samson told all of those Ngoni people who had gathered in Central Malawi about the first sin. He shared with them from Genesis 3 and how Adam and Eve, as soon as they realized what they had done, “sewed fig leaves together to make something to cover themselves” (Genesis 3:7). Hiding our sin is as common as the rising of the sun. But Damson, Climbing For Christ’s Malawi-based missionary to East Africa, explained: “Covering our sins does not do us well. We need to come ...
