Chiluba Church was opened by three people worshiping under a tree in 2006, as shown in the picture. The Central Malawi Conference commissioned Benwell Ezera Nkhoma as a Global Mission Pioneer to serve in this area. They continued worshiping under the tree and whenever it rained they had to worship in a house.
In 2014 the chief gave them free land to build their church. In 2015 the members molded the bricks and burnt them. When SID Adventist Mission Department announced that it was ready to support building some churches under pioneer work, it was like an immediate answer to the prayers of the members of Chiluba. When financial assistance came they worked very hard to supply sand, water, and food to the builders until the church was completed.
- Great things start small.
- Don’t wait until you have all the money needed to build a church.
We praise God … indeed little is much when God is in it.
