Meeting Hosted by Kanjedza Congregation
July 13, 2002

This meeting took place at the Kanjedza congregation located in the Domasi area of the northern part of Zomba District, Malawi, on July 13, 2002. This meeting was specially requested and arranged with us by brethren, not only from Kanjedza, but Ntwiche, Mchilingano, Namawata, Kachere, and Makungula congregations as well. The meeting was a very special occasion, the occasion being the fulfillment of their decision to be reunited with the brotherhood which has been in Malawi for close to half a century. The event was like a celebration of family being reconciled after having been separated and out of touch for a long, long time. We thank God for the joyous occasion! "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity." (Psalms 133:1). "Be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you." (2 Cor. 13:11).  AMEN!  --Jim Franklin

Reconciliation Meeting was very successful !
These are the brethren who attended the reconciliation meeting of six congregations held at the Kanjedza congregation located near the Domasi College in the Zomba District of Malawi on Saturday, July 13, 2002. The man with the green skull cap on his head on the right side in the front of the picture is Chief Mwalija, the chief of the village where the Kanjedza church is located. Chief Mwalija is a Muslim. However, he became interested enough in the sermon that he began to read the Scriptures in the Bible belonging to the man sitting next to him. When the congregation sang the last song, Bro. Albert Brumley's "This World Is Not My Home" (sung in Chichewa), he joined right in and sang as enthusiastically as a member of the church! THAT is unusual for a Muslim to do, i.e. to sing a "Christian" song. By the way, the man who gave the land for the church to build their building (they have just laid the foundation) is also a Muslim.
