From culture in Africa Columbus evangelists gain : Part 2

On an ongoing outing to Africa with evangelists from West Georgia, we encountered diverse living conditions, dialects, nourishment, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Right now report, they take a gander at the positives of the way of life and the risks like black magic.

Music is an all inclusive language and the sounds from houses of worship in Africa had the team from Columbus-based service Take The City much increasingly eager to acquire expectation and rejuvenation to networks nations like Malawi, where evangelists likewise must be vigil.

“The places we were going were really full of witchcraft, and whether you believe that or not, it’s real. So, every morning, we’d get up, we’d pray,” Josh Lindquist said.

The Minnesota head, who joined the Columbus men, has been going to and lecturing in Africa for a long time.

“A lot of people experience how bad witchcraft is and how dark it is,” Malawi local Israel Stanford said. Israel Stanford experienced black magic experiencing childhood in Southeastern Africa, saying he had reviles on his life and saw secretive passings in his family.

“I experienced a lot of witchcraft at times, in and out of school, things I couldn’t explain. That just led me on a path of frustration, drinking, smoking.” Israel said most Africans are either involved in witchcraft or are on the receiving end of it. “I knelt down and gave my life to the Lord. That’s when the transformation started to happen,” Israel included.

Presently, he works at the Jerusalem House of Prayer, returning to Malawi when he can. Andrew Chalmers, CEO of Take The City service, drove our excursion, saying he felt the call to go, finding how modest and responsive the individuals of Africa are. What’s more, the children particularly, love on American guests, including playing soccer (or football) with us. Tre Rager, evangelist from Columbus in Africa, said “Just playing with the kids and dancing with them, seeing the joy they found.”

“I think there’s something incredible about learning from other cultures, see the value they carry. It’s also incredible that the people of Africa have such warm hearts,” Chalmers said.

“Immediately after talking with them, you felt like family,” Rager included.

New companions shared declarations from sharing their confidence outside the four dividers of their congregation, utilizing devices they gained from the American evangelists. One Malawi church part stated, “They know Jesus. The others, they said this is the time, how can I know Jesus?”

All through the outing, particularly when addressing groups and houses of worship, there regularly was a mediator. “In Nairobi (Kenya), they speak a lot more Swahili but down in Malawi, they speak Chechewa, their local language.All of them mostly speak English,” Rager clarified.

The social involvement with Africa included one of a kind nourishment, as chambo fish out of Lake Malawi and a nearby most loved nsima.

“It’s maize corn powder. It’s like what we call grits,” Chalmers said, after enjoying plenty of nsima. As we left, one pastor in Southeastern Africa told us, “This partnership is good and we wish you come back as soon as possible.”
