Hi guys!

lt’s Blessing Mpeta again from Malawi. l thank God for giving me chance to attend this program of internship this year. l had no idea where to get money for the program , l met a lot of oppositions and discouragements from different people and even family. In all this, l just trusted God and l was just saying if he wants me to go l will go, l knew that enemy is playing with me and l saw God’s superpower fighting for me. God is someone else, no one is like him and l cant even imagine how great he is because his power is beyond greatness. He provided money for program even for transport and my mom and sister started encouraging me and l kept on trusting God. l also thank people who heard God ‘s voice and obey and support me, it took your obedience guys! May God bless you.

This internship has been great experience to me, l came with a lot of staff to deal with, such as broken relationships, sometimes failing to forgive those who really hurt me ,and lack of good stewardship. But through this program, God has just really moved my heart . Through a lot of teachings, mentoring and being in the presence of the Lord, my life has just changed. He has given me everything new. He has restored my heart to forgive, he has flowed his patience in my heart even how to relate to people has changed . He has also encouraged my life to be in his presence here! l have great time to worship God and even l reach on point where l just want to spend the whole day with him because my heart is hungry and he is only one to satisfy me. God also fired me up to do justice and raise leaders for the next generation.

l also thank God for connecting me to everyone on this internship, has been great time just to know you guys, eat together, sing hambanathi together, dance and worship God together! It just give me a picture how the first disciples of Jesus were living , sharing things, praying for one another , encouraging one another and just to submit to one another. l just also thank God for Abby my best friend, the wife of John. l really love you, you are such a amazing person ,encouraging, open always fire for Jesus. l felt good and great when we are together, I will really miss u so much but l miss u all the time and you show me how!

Yes full equipped, Ready for the world!

BLESSING MPETA: Second Update!

Outpouring of Blessing

Hi guys! I am Blessing Mpeta from Malawi. In my last few weeks a lot has happened. I have learned so much. A week before going to outreach we had the lessons as usual and God spoke to me in a different way. It was all about encouragement for outreach.

In the outreach week I was so excited to go to Malawi to work with the ministry of Oliver and Rhoda, my dad and mom, because it was a good opportunity to be with my family and to tell my siblings what new things I learned from the internship and I really enjoyed it.

What I learned mostly in the last few weeks is that God can use anyone He wants for his mission to be fulfilled. This came to fruition when we came to a Muslim guy in outreach. He was stopping others from making noise just for us to tell them the gospel. This completely changed my attitude because I was not expecting this to happen. It was so encouraging that he was willing to stop all the noise for me and my group. This showed me that God uses any and all people to fulfill his mission. Also, God heals. I saw God healing his people spiritually and so many came to know Jesus Christ.

The challenge that I met I did not meet alone but with three to four other friends. So, I experienced a language problem but God used one of my friends, Lima, to interpret to the audience into the Chiyao language which was so sweet.

My Life as an Intern

July 5th, 2017 Posted by Immersion Internship - 2017 0 comments on “My Life as an Intern”

Hi guys, I am Blessing Mpeta from Mangochi, Malawi. I am 20 years old and I am the third born in a family of six kids. l love my family so much!
I am very excited to be an intern this year! Through this internship, God is doing a lot of things in my life. I have realized my true identity and to be defined by WHO GOD SAYS I AM. My identity is not what people say about me, because the one who made me tells the truth about me. These core truths can be found in the word of God, the bible. I am also learning that it is very important to confess these core truths to ourselves in our daily life, and remind ourselves of them when we fall down, get lonely, or anything that contradicts the Word of God. When we confess truth about ourselves, we gain new strength.
My main challenge during this internship is that sometimes I feel lonely and out of place. However, God is speaking to me and showing me how much he loves and cares for me through people around me. They are caring, concerned about others, and help to carry the burdens of others. I am so amazed with this family and I feel so at home here. We also have a lot of fun playing games, sports and music.

I have also realized that God desires relationship with us, and this is why he sent Jesus to die for us and take away the sin that separates us from him. He just wants to be with us, to share his love, joy and peace with us. In each of our lives, God gives us unique purposes. It is very important that we ask God how he wants each of us to serve him. I am so thankful for everyone who has taken part to teach me, fund me, and pray for me as I have found this sweet home in the 2017 Immersion Internship. I love you guys, receive a holy kiss from me, MUA!
