The former General Conference Children Ministries Associate Director, Pastor Saustin Kazgeba Mfune who visited Kasungu Central church in the Central Malawi Conference on 9th January 2021, has advised church elders to work hard in the administration of their work.
Pastor Mfune made the remarks when the newly elected church elders were being ordained to serve the Lord. The Pastor was in company of his family, shepherdess Getrude Mfune and his sons, Dumisani and Pastor Dingani Mfune who is also the district pastor for Kasungu.
He said, "If you are a leader, you must work hard so that when you leave your office, people should have something to show as your achievement.”
Speaking before him in the morning, Mr Dumisani Mfune in his sermon titled ‘The Final Crisis’, urged the congregants to do four things in order to prepare for the final crisis.
Firstly, he said, the Bible urges us to set standards as did the three Hebrew boys in the Daniel 1:8.
Secondly, he said the church should always fact check.
“We read a lot in social media and many believe, but as Adventists we should first check facts as did men of Berea,” he said.
Thirdly, Christians should be surrounded with the right people. Some are influential as such they mislead others because of their influence. A lot of people are confused because of influential people.
Lastly and most importantly, he said the Church need to trust God. In Daniel 3:16-18 the three Hebrew boys acknowledged that there is God is heaven which means they trusted Him.
In the afternoon, Pastor Saustin Mfune dedicated children at Kasungu Central including Pastor Dingani Mfune’s son, Jordan Langalethu, whom the family was celebrating his first birthday.
Elder Ollen Mulungu on behalf of the congregation thanked the Mfune families for inspiring Kasungu Central church, and he therefore asked God to bless them abundantly.
The day was spiced up with beautiful songs from Heavenly Bells.
Pastor Saustin Mfune was welcomed by Children Ministries of Kasungu central church.
