Mr. Kachara is a grand father, 76 years old. He is a dedicated member of Catholic Church. His house is next door to Devine Revival Church (pastor Daniel Banda at Nkhotakota Linga) where we usually meet for DCI trainings. His wife and children had left him because of divorce, so he lives alone.
This man is very hospitable, and he always welcomes us with joy at his house. Now this time he started telling George and I of his dedication to GOD and to Catholic Church. He said every year he buys a liturgical calendar. He said this is the key to the Bible and that it is this liturgical calendar that connects him with GOD because it has 52 ceremony scriptures covering 52 weeks in a year. It contains every protocol of the Catholic Church for every member to follow. Right at this time, we found him on 50 days prayer and fasting ready for Easter cerebration. He said the fasting ends at Good Friday.
I was interested to ask him to tell us his story of his salvation. He went around all the protocols of his Church and then he said he does not know if he is saved or not.
This gave us a wonderful opportunity and I started discipling him one-to-one, going through the DB (Dynamic Basics) lessons with him and he received JESUS CHRIST as his Saviour! The next day we met him again and he was so excited; he said to us, ” for the first time in 76 years, yesterday I received salvation and I felt peace with GOD in my heart “.
Hearing this from his mouth, we really saw the joy of the Holy Spirit in him. He said that he used to womanize and have sex outside his marriage and do many more evil things but now he repented all these things.
We were filled with joy to see how GOD used this time to save this man’s soul as John was training the pastors. I then later referred him to pastor Daniel Banda to continue the one-to-one discipleship with him.
I pray that he may keep on the faith and may the LORD secure him in his safe hands. Amen!
