My name is Hastings Makuwa from Livingstone, Zambia. I am going to miss my friends. My fellow interns have been so good to everyone. I saw love and care in each and every one of them. It is amazing to see how God has processed with us through love and care.

I am also going to miss the leaders of (EXP) The Elijah Experience. These guys have been so good. Before this program I felt rejected, but joining this program has really helped me feel at home. I was hopeless and I found hope in this whole journey.

They helped me know who I am, they awakened the sleeping giant inside of me. The areas where I was sleeping in my life were awakened, my dreams, passions, relationship with God, my heart for missions, everything.

This program has really helped me. I have been empowered to become an agent of change in my own community and passionately follow Jesus Christ.

Faith

Form 45 Entry 688 Fileupload 4My name is hastings Mukuwa. This month has been one of my greatest experience ever. Even though this is the first mission trip, I have already learned so much not only have I learned about how to reach out to others but I have learned a lot about myself. One thing I have learned about myself is that I get easily discouraged, when I am serving and I don’t get any response from people it turns to trigger thoughts in my head that am I doing something wrong, does this even matter? However through this I have learned to have faith in God and trust Him to do His will through our work. I also realized that I get easily distracted and this has really challenged me for the past weeks of ministry. I thank God he gives me the Spirit to overcome and focus on Him. This has been an amazing experience.Form 45 Entry 688 Fileupload 5

My name is Hastings Mukuwa and I am from Livingstone Zambia. It is very interesting and exciting to be with different cultures with love and unity in the same environment and sharing the same home together. I have had a lot of negative thoughts about Africa, asking myself why Africa has been so dependent. I believed that Africa is cursed. However, I found out the truth during this internship. One of the leaders taught us about God’s heart fro Africa. I came to understand things about myself and how to relate with others and how valuable they are in the sight of God. I also learned how I should celebrate spiritual discipline as it leads to growth. I learned how I should meditate, pray, fast, and study.

I have been encouraged to more fully understand the Hope we have in Christ. Through Jesus, God is faithful and we can trust Him and His good news. This includes the fact that God keeps His promises and accomplishes His purposes. I also learned about integral mission. The other part of our study which moved my life is God’s Heart for Creation. We have been encouraged to listen to what God is telling us and to focus on Him. I also learned about submission.

“Only submission can free us sufficiently to enable us to distinguish between genuine issues and stubborn self will.”

I also learned the real issue is the spirit of consideration and respect we have for each other. We should love people unconditionally and rejoice in their success.
