We are already in Malawi

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Brother Garrett Kirchway and his wife, Neo, spent almost two weeks in Malawi last month, and things went really well. They’ve already put together a highly-motivated soul-winning team of six people, and in the short time that they were there, they saw a total of 162 souls saved!

The team consisted of Brother Kirchway, his wife Neo, their cab driver who Neo led to the Lord, another one of their converts, and two local pastors. Those two pastors, who are breaking away from local denominations, welcomed the Kirchways with open arms and are excited about helping with Faithful Word Baptist Church Malawi.

The homos that said we had been banned must have been lying because the Kirchways did not have any problems getting into the country. There’s always the possibility of being banned, but Lord willing, we will start the church there in April 2017.

Not only were the people of Malawi extremely receptive to the Gospel, but they really want to go to church and are looking forward to the launch of FWBC Malawi in April. One young man who had just gotten saved was asked what he would tell homosexuals that don’t want the church to be started there, and he replied that he would tell them to “go to Hell.”

Enough people in Malawi are fluent in English for us to conduct church services in English, but it is a blessing to already have some locals on our team who can also speak the native language of Chichewa. We plan to kick things off with another soul-winning marathon in April, which is a great opportunity for soul winners who are interested in going on another missions trip.

As always, the haters of God are trying to make this about our stand against homosexuality, but that’s not the focus of our church or this mission. When we have these mission trips, we are there to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and to train locals to do the same. That said, if we are able to establish a permanent church there, Brother Kirchway will be preaching on all subjects, both popular and unpopular.

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.” 2 Timothy 4:2

Here is a sermon by Brother Garrett Kirchway

This is excellent. Mr Garrett is going to become like a Paul in Malawi. If the church continues in the same Spirit as FWBC, it will be a great success, and a blessing to Sub-saharan Africa.
