Glorious Light International Church has organized a Youth Seminar with the vision of reaching out to the youth with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Slated for 3rd to 4th September 2022 at the Church’s Arena of Liberty, the seminar targets not only the youths from Malawi, but also but also from other countries around Malawi, and even beyond.
Addressing the media in Lilongwe on Thursday, Glorious Light International Church Founder Bishop Dr Abraham Simama said apart from the seminar, they has also targeted 1500 households in Lilongwe townships in charity events.
The them of the event is “Jesus Christ our Changer”.
“As you will relate and appreciate, the youth of today are meeting several challenges in their lives. Their academic life is affected. Their social life is affected. Their spiritual life is affected. And above all, their relationship with God and people is in a big mess.
“For married youth, marriages are no longer guaranteed these days. Marriages are ending everyday, leaving children destitute. Divorce judgements in our courts are being delivered on daily basis, leaving no hope for the man and woman.
“The youth of today are engaged in drug trafficking, accepting to be agents of this terrible business. Some of the youth have been attracted to using drugs, or trafficking in drugs just because of the their poverty and need for a flashy life style.
“And when the devil uses them, he dumps them, and leaves them to rot. Their lives lose direction, their future gets doomed and their vision is completely lost. Drunkenness has become part of everyday life. The youth, even those who go to churches, are drinking every day, contrary to the ideals of Christian character. Alcohol has become part of the lifestyle for the youth.
“In the old times, children feared their parents. What parents said was taken seriously and it was final. Today, the situation has changed. Now, parents are fearing their own children. Discipline among the youth has really gone down. There is total chaos in homes, in schools, in the communities we live and in the entire nation.
“In light of all these, we, at Glorious Light International Church, have decided to step in and offer a solution – based on Jesus Christ Our Changer. We want to show the way, which is Jesus Christ, and share with the youth the word of truth,” he said
Bishop Simama said there will be visitors from Nigeria who are coming for the seminar, with an advance team already in the country.
“We are going to have many ministers of the word of God including Prophetesses Anne and Yinka daughters of my spiritual mentor, Prophet T.B. Joshua, may his soul continue resting in peace, and other ministers.
“We also have over 20 members from Nigeria mentored Prophet T.B Joshua are coming here to do several ministrations such as music, media work, protocol and
“During this time, we will have preaching sessions, deliverance sessions, worship sessions, testimony sessions. This will culminate into a charity event on 5th and 6th September in Ntsiriza and Masintha Ground where we are going to deliver items to over 1500 beneficiaries in Lilongwe rural.
“We do many charity events this every year, including during the Easter season, to show love for those in need and care for those who struggle to have food on their table. So, we also hope to touch many lives with these activities as well,” he said
Before the seminar, the youth will have a march around the city on September 1.
