Fighting for Justice

August 10th, 2018 Posted by Immersion Internship – 2018 0 comments on “Fighting for Justice”

Okay, here we go again! We had a wonderful week of justice, getting to learn from amazing teachers. We learned that there are many types of justice and learned how we can implement justice as Christians in our communities and the nations.

Micah Kephart taught us about justice. He said that justice is God’s; we only co-partner with what He does. We do not take justice into our own hands, and it takes discernment for us to participate in it. There are many ways that God can bring justice into a community, relationship, and to His people. Knowing that God is the one who brings reward and punishment to those who do injustice makes it easier to understand that we don’t have to fight for justice all on our own. There are five “Global Giants,” and these global giants all work together. They are spiritual emptiness, oppression, illiteracy, disease, and poverty. So knowing that, if we do not touch the human spirit, then we will not see a transformation. Yes, we can slay four of the five giants by human power, but without dealing with spiritual emptiness, there can be no transformation. Knowing that all the root of injustice is sin, it is the spiritual and the natural realm working together. That’s why we need to allow God to touch the human spirit. 

Only Jesus can bring transformation to a human spirit. Jesus is the answer and the solution to every injustice. I am going to take Jesus to wherever I am, wherever I will go.

Simplicity and Humility

August 1st, 2018 Posted by Immersion Internship – 2018 0 comments on “Simplicity and Humility”


HI everybody! I just wanna share about my journey experience to Lesotho; what I have learned and how I have grown from this journey. It has been a layered opportunity for me to go on outreach with Poetice immersion internship. My journey begins on a bus, that took about 36 hours to get from Zambia to our destination. Passing through Botswana and South Africa, it was a good experience for me. I had never stepped out of the country before, so getting to see the beauty of these two countries was amazing to me. As we were on our way, we got to see the beauty of these countries: nature, the mountains, the
plain lands. I could see the beauty and the glory of God in every creation, and my heart was leaping with joy. This was an experience I had never had before, and being eager to see how these cultures worship God kept me occupied during the long journey. When we reached Lesotho, we were all very tired and we had to take a good rest. In the morning, I saw this beautiful couple who welcomed us with such joy. So, I was so happy to meet these people and we went to hike a mountain together and spend some time there. As I was on the mountaintop looking at the wonderful, beautiful creation of God, the nature that I have never seen in my life, it made me want to worship God. As we were spending time with God and just getting to pour out our hearts to Him in worship, I met God on the mountain, and I heard his voice. He said a lot of things to me about my life, and what He’s going to do. Feeling God’s embrace of love made me know that His love changes everything.


So as we were serving at the base of LXP, Godfrey and Elizabeth (who are the LXP leaders) took us to serve by building a chicken coop. It was my first time doing that, and after playing football for about two hours, I was chosen with my two friends to build the chicken coop. We had to mix cement with soil, and it was hard for me because I was tired. But, I had to serve without complaining because I was doing that for God. It wasn’t about me, but it was about God. I learned that in everything I do, I shouldn’t complain, but always thank God and see Him in everything. Although it was tough, it made me learn to walk in simplicity and humility. Thinking about when Jesus was carrying the cross, I know that He never complained about his burden, and that encourages me to serve God and others. That was a big lesson for me, and I thank God for bringing me to Lesotho to teach me.


I was given an opportunity to engage the youths at the youth camp, among our other weekly duties. As we took time to share our stories with them, it wasn’t easy but I thought that would be the only way that we could minister Christ to them: through how God had changed our lives. As we took the time to share our stories with them and our different struggles and how Jesus has helped us overcome so much in our lives, I felt we were breaking through to them and allowing the beauty of God’s work in our lives relate to their lives and struggles as well. Overall, I am very thankful for the opportunity to go on such a great adventure for God with my team and leaders, and the lessons I learned will continue to impact me and my life for many years to come.

What I Have Learned

June 28th, 2018 Posted by Immersion Internship – 2018 0 comments on “What I Have Learned”


Hi, this is Enoch Kambulu. I am 22 years old from Livingstone, Zambia. I came here to Poetice in Choma to learn about missions and how they are changing the communities through justice. Since our internship lessons begun from day one, they have been life-changing in the aspects of spiritual, physical, relational, mental, teamwork, missions, and DBS.


THE GOD STORY:
Getting to learn that God is relational and understanding how the GODHEAD functions. 

Abigail taught us about the GODHEAD—a family of joyful intimacy. We learned how they worked together as one, rejoicing when they were creating the humanity and the world, knowing that God created humanity to have family relationship, knowing that we were made in the image of the Trinity–not in just one of them but in the image of them all, and knowing that God is the only one that can satisfy us above all things, regardless of the things we may have. But after humanity had deviated from the original design by disobeying GOD out of the free will, which was given to humanity, mankind lost his original design. But JESUS came in and restored back our original design in the GODHEAD that Jesus represents us in the GODHEAD.

IDENTITY:
Getting to learn about identity, it was awesome and understanding our original identity.

Daniel and Sarah taught us that our Identity is not about what people say. It is about what God says we are because our true identity originates from Him. When you see and feel about yourself the way God sees you, you will live the way God wants you to live, because identity is received, not achieved by living in true self-living. 

FREEDOM:
Freedom is being able to do things without restrictions moving from bondage to free living.

I have also learned that freedom comes with responsibilities and consequences, that as a child of God I shouldn’t use my freedom to sin. I have to take responsibilities of the choices I make and do. I learned that everybody submits to something. someone some God knowing that we become what we worship either internally or external that I need to live as a son, not a slave that what is better than freedom is belonging & adoption.
