Nsewa Dorcas Cheers the Sick at Likuni Hospital
Women of Nsewa Seventh Day Adventist on Sunday, March 24, 2019 visited Likuni hospital where they donated assorted items and shared with them the word of God.
The women visited the maternity wing: the postnatal ward, antenatal ward, labor ward and the nursery.
Opening the ceremony, Sherpedess Magwira congratulated the women for the gifts that God has given them and she further urged them to nurture the children for the glory of God.
"I am encouraging you to let your children grow in God's favour and teach them about Jesus Christ because the Bible says Jesus loves children and He says let the children come to me," said Sherpedess Magwira.
Nsewa Dorcas leader, Edina Mpeketula said she is happy with what the women have done.
Mpeketula added that they decided to visit Likuni hospital because people in hospitals lack a lot of things as they are away from their homes.
"As the Bible says Dorcas was a lady who was helping the needy and this is an example to us and we're walking in the same steps. We understand that we are on a mission not just preaching and singing but also to help those who are in need so as to fulfill the mission that Jesus Christ left for us," said Mpeketula.
She further thanked all the women for their physical and financial support that they rendered during all the preparations.
Adding on the same the sponsor of Nsewa Dorcas Peter Matiki appreciated the initiative that the women made and he encouraged them to continue with the charity work. He also thanked Nsewa church leadership for their support that they always give.
" I would like to encourage these women to keep visiting and cheering all the needy so that Jesus should be seen through them.
I also encourage them to keep the team work spirit and the unity that they show for God's work to prosper and fasten his second coming," he concluded.
Receiving the donation one of the women Bertha Mangoni expressed her happiness to the Dorcas group for the items that they prepared for them.
" I am very happy with the items I have received today,these are very precious gifts and they will help us a lot while we are here," said Mangoni.
Commenting on the same, the nursing officer in the maternity section Chrissy Mkwezalamba expressed her gratitude for the good job done by Nsewa Dorcas.
"On behalf of Likuni hospital, I would like to thank you all for remembering Likuni hospital on your charity works.
We have a lot of patients here, others come from remote areas and they lack things that can help them while they are here so these items will help them a lot," said Mkwezalamba.
Mkwezalamba further urged the women to keep helping the needy in all areas they can manage to reach because there are indeed a lot of people suffering.
The items included sugar,soap and salt and were costing over seventy thousand kwacha which the women together with the church contributed.
