My name is Mumba Mwape and my experience at the Elijah house has been amazing. Waking up everyday to praise God and taking the Word of God out into different ministries is an opportunity I have embraced.
I feel I have grown even more close to God after learning about His heart for missions. As interns at the Elijah house we have been given the privilege to read a book written by Richard S. Foster called Celebration of Discipline. The disciplines that have helped me so far in my spiritual growth are the inward disciplines, which are meditation, prayer, fasting, and study.
Coming from different cultures has been a challenge but I feel that with every time I’ve personally interacted with my friends from the United States and Canada I rose above any cultural barriers. Dividing up my time has also been a challenge since our schedule has been very busy.
The lessons we’ve been having have been life changing for me and have helped me to seek God and constantly be found in His presence.
