Lusaka

In Lusaka for the week with nine fearless influencers from Nairobi and Kampala. Were a team of artistes, entrepreneurs/professionals and pastors. Have had incredible meetings so far, networking with uni students, recent grads, entertainers, media practitioners, professionals and entrepreneurs. We’ve met some incredibly talented and passionate people in this amazing city! We do a Mizizi launch tomorrow. Praying for a great turnout!

  1. You know pastor it pains my heart to think that probably 99% of mankind goes through life without connecting with their purpose. This sounds like a grim statistic but 1% of 6billion is 60million which even sounds too high a figure…especially given that many think their careers or families are their purpose. Mavuno really gets one doing a self-examination and often times I realize the things we struggle and sweat for or to achieve really mean nothing more than a comfortable bed to sleep on. I was watching TV and this guy just let it out so clearly and this I believe will be a blessing to many…that: don’t you wonder why however much you work and earn you never get to a point where you are satisfied or never meet all your needs? Its like the more you get the more you need and the misery continues even with billions in the bank? This guy/ pastor 🙂 put it this way, that your work, job, business and the returns you get from it are not to meet your needs, they will never meet your needs no matter how much, they are to enable you meet your responsibilities to the church and to God by enabling you to tithe, and that only God meets all your needs as a result of your faithful tithing. Your earnings will never fulfill your desires for comfort, only God will. When God says test me, I find it so spooky because whenever I’m in my tithing season 🙂 (I’m still working at being regular and faithful at it), I get so blessed I feel guilty for denying God His end of the bargain when He is so faithful. I’m looking forward to fulfilling my pledge to the church and being part of the army that turned things around in whatever small way. I find a lot of solace in Revelation, that ultimately We Win! God bless you, God bless Mavuno.

  3. Paul’s Ministry in Thessalonica

    1 You know, brothers and sisters, that our visit to you was not without results. 2 We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition. 3 For the appeal we make does not spring from error or impure motives, nor are we trying to trick you. 4 On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts. 5 You know we never used flattery, nor did we put on a mask to cover up greed—God is our witness. 6 We were not looking for praise from people, not from you or anyone else, even though as apostles of Christ we could have asserted our authority. 7 Instead, we were like young children[a] among you.

  4. God in heaven i pray today, that your hand of grace will be upon these your children as they take your word to the nations.
    In obedience to the call you put in our hearts we are reaching to Africa with your Light; Cause your favour to abound in their lives.
    I pray that your manifold wisdom and authority will rest upon them. Father, that you will confirm this call with signs and wonders so that the world will see and believe.In Jesus Name, Amen!

  5. Good to see you back pastor m & to know your efforts to plant seeds in lusaka were fruitful. While you were away, i had ‘market place’ issues to deal with. I work for a healthy food retail company, & i’m based @ the head office. The company is ownwd by an asian hindu who is the MD. Like you may know, they’ve just celebrated diwali. Other than the foods, we sell gifts. & each week to diwali, the MD holds a diwali exhibition where she sells the gifts, since diwali involves exchanging gifts other than it being a festival of lights. Since i’m afew months old there, i experienced my first exhibition having been called upon to help. We sell candles, vases, jewellary & my ‘issue,’ BUDHAAS & GARNESHES. A garnesh is an elephant like thing that hindus worship. I found myself selling this to customers but later on i thought, wasn’t i making a mistake? They are sold @ one of our shops, so i would avoid that part of the shop until diwali came. Some may tell me to change jobs but i don’t believe in running away. Guide me!

  6. Hallo,

    I am a Zambian who has been to Mavuno on and off when i am in Nairobi. Kindly connect if you are still in Lusaka. Kindly drop me an email so that we connect.

  7. As I read this passage about the harvest (John 4:35 – 38) last week – Mavuno really came to mind.

    The key things were:

    1. The fields are ripe for harvest as the Lord went before us in Nairobi, Kampala & Lusaka and had sown. (v 35)

    2. As His reapers, when we as Mavuno Church reap, we will be glad together with Him who has sown. (v 36)

    3. Let’s remember to give Him all the glory as we reap the benefits of the labour of those He sent before us. (v 38)

    Its often said in Mavuno, its God who has brought us this far. May this knowledge that its He who opens doors remain imprinted in our hearts and at the front of our minds.
