Madalitso will be working as a Pastoral Intern alongside Confex Makhalira in their church plant efforts in Blantyre, Malawi
I am Madalitso Isaac Dube married to Rose Mtunda Dube and blessed with two children, Joyous and Joanna. I was born in a Christian family, both of my parents were Christians of Zambezi Evangelical Church, hence I was raised with Christian values and principles. My parents used to send me and my siblings to Sunday school until the time I was baptised. Thereafter, the Lord saved me.
After I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and saviour, I started serving him in different capacities such as Sunday school teacher, chairman of the fellowship of youth and treasurer of student Christian organization of Malawi. All these duties helped me to grow spiritually and in the fear of the Lord. Because of the love I had for the Lord and a desire to grow in the knowledge of Him, I applied for theological studies at African Bible College where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies in 2007. Since my graduation, I have been serving God as an assistant pastor, church elder/treasure, youth executive member of Zambezi Evangelical Church and also as Zonal Chairman of Student Christian Organization of Malawi. Through all these services, I have come to know more of God’s grace, love, kindness, and mercy.
As I sense God’s call to serve him as a minister in a Reformed church here in Malawi, I humbly submit myself to the call. I am really excited and humbled to work together with Rev. Confex Makhalira through Malawi Reformation Network (MRN). This will give me an opportunity to continue growing spiritually and mature in the Lord because I will be exposed to a full range of pastoral duties such as preaching, leading Bible studies, attending session meetings and doing evangelism.
Furthermore, working with MRN will help me gain more understanding of the Reformed faith since I was raised in a broader evangelical church. Apart from the above-mentioned responsibilities, serving as an intern with Confex will help me to be rooted and established in the Reformed faith through a more in-depth study of Reformed literature and discussions I will be having with Confex and my fellow interns. Through my internship, I hope to also help many who are being led astray by false teachings to see the light of the gospel.
Finally, my wife and I are really happy and count ourselves blessed to be part of MRN work here in our motherland Malawi. It is our hope and prayer that we will see many people accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8). We really thank God for the grace bestowed upon us.
God bless you all, Amen!!!!!!
