AWANA FIELD REPORT BY BROTHER
MURUNDU AWANA CLUB 2TIMOTHY CHAPTER 2VS
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lust we should live righteously and godly in the present age. This is the main reason for the existence of AWANA club in our village. We have been mandated by the Commander in chief to preach and reach out to people out there with the gospel
because it is the reason why we are saved. The overwhelming response of the clubbers in the village has been one of our biggest tool in doing the work of the Lord. We are grateful to God that he has made this work possible.
In the early days of the existence of AWANA, people never even understood what AWANA meant. They thought it is something that was misleading their kids. They could come during the programme, take up their kids and beat them in our presence and tell them to stop attending our AWANA programme. Parents tried by all means to stop their children from attending our programme, but those efforts were all in vain because the word was already in the kids so they could not be stopped. This time around, as I write this report, I am
glad to say that today parents are now encouraging their children to attend the
AWANA programme because of the many positive benefits they have seen in the
growth of their children not only in stature but also in the spirit.
The greatest gift God gave us was love through his only begotten son Christ by dying on the cross for our sins so that our generation be saved. The kids of today are leaders of tomorrow. That is why when you look at our target you will see that we are targeting the kids mostly in our programmes. We know for sure that they are the ones that will lead the country in the shortest near future, so if we impart the word of God in them, the country and the world will be a better place to live in. The leaders will lead the world on very strong Christian values as they will have known and understood Christian values in strong terms.
Just recently we had AWANA inter district games which was held in Mufulira. We saw a great number of kids turning up for the programme-Chingola, Chillilabombwe, Ndola, Kitwe,Chambishi, Luanshya and of course Mufulira the hosts. We had three big buses from Murundu.(Murundu is the community served by the Enfys program and LRPI). We had a great time together with the kids. We could see and feel the impact of the word of God in the kids as they responded to the teachings and games positively. Chingola, Chambishi and Chililabombwe were pronounced winners at the prize giving.We saw wonders
in the clubbers on that day, 29 July. It will always be a great day in my life because of what happened.
