Churches in the Central Malawi Conference (CMC) have commemorated this year’s World Adventist Radio day which fell on 14th March 2020. The day was basically set aside by the General Conference of the SDA to appreciate the role of the Adventist media in saving and changing lives around the world.
As one way of commemorating the day, various churches across the central region of Malawi set up various programmes for the same led by Communications secretaries.
Speaking at Kainsa church, Samuel Chimkonde one of the CMC’s Communicators, appealed to the Church to use Communication department in disseminating gospel messages by among others equipping the department with information and activities that can help to gain souls.
"We are living in last days, and gospel message needs to be taken to the world for Christ to come. One way of doing this is through the use of communication technologies such as radio, television, newsletters, Facebook, Whatsapp and the website", said Chimkonde.
And while appealing to church members to appreciate the role the world radio is impacting on lives, the Communicators also pleaded for more support towards Hope Channel Malawi, a local Adventist media.
Reacting to this, Elder Patrick Khonga speaking at Dzenza church said the program was an eye opener on the financial challenges facing the radio. Therefore, as church members they have committed to do more to support the radio in addition to the K100 per person per month contribution.
The churches also used this opportunity to educate its members of the issue that has affected the general population.
For instance, Kachere, Ntunthama, and Area 23 churches took time to explain and educate their members on how to prevent Corona virus.
