    Word Live Ministries take care of your poor pastors. Does Mark Kambalazaza knows this. He is rich am sure he is going to bail him out.

    Please pay these poor pastors Sunday offerings-tenth. In the Bible it is said tenth was meant for welfare of the pastors-Levites but its a shame that most churches don’t differenciate between normal offering and tenth. God is watching you custodians as well as users of church money. Am not SDA but SDA tries differenciate normal offering and tenth. Tenth its not for buying cars or building churches NO the says NO but normal offering it’s for this. Koma inu mukuphatika zonse.

    O……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O
    Kodi zimatheka bwanji munthu kukhala opusa chomwechi? yet he is holding some position of authority (councillorship)?

    Couldn’t this councillor use just 1% of his brain and deduce that the story of APM buying him a car is too good to be true? I just wish that this councillor’s ignorance has limits; he could have known that APM could not buy him a car and fail hence ask him to pay for insurance.

    And these are the people we look up to as leaders, hence expect to develop this country? Ha! Laughable! How come Malawi is this cursed i.e. just having “leaders” whose IQ level is way below average, like this councillor’s? Are we surpised therefore that this country is going miles and miles to nowhere?

    You see, some level of learning/education is necessary. It broadens one’s understanding of issues and makes one see a bigger picture of the same hence reduce probability of being this dumb.
