A team of young people from Reinstated Christian Home (RCH) ministries on Sunday reached out to the elderly and orphans in Mzuzu’s Mchengautuba residential area where they shared various food and non-food items through their programme of reaching out to the less-privileged.
Team leader for the exercise, Dhumie Jere, said they reached out to about 15 households, and their intention was “to exercise love—the same that we preach—through giving.”
Jere, quoting scripture from Mathew 25:35, stressed that the little that one gives if shared can bail out someone in dire need.
He said: “Mainly we are trying to be practical as Christians because we realise that if we simply preach without love then our preaching is nothing. We can say we have faith, but faith without works is nothing. We are purely a giving ministry realising that the passion and love that we have for others is the expression of God in us.”
Gogo Nyauzembe who stays lives with five orphaned children said she was grateful to RCH for the various donations. The grandmother survives by helping out at a nearby maize mill where she does pieceworks and earns maize bran for food.
“We are happy for the food. God should bless you all, and surely He must replace from where you have taken,” said Gogo Nyauzembe.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
