…to win more souls to Christ
Bangwe Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church says all is set for its camp meeting scheduled to take place from 1st to 7th of October this year.
According to Friday Sauda, camp meeting organizing committee chairperson, the much touted event will be held at the church premises at Bangwe Township in Blantyre.
Sauda further said the preparations for what he described as would be ‘a historic’ camp meeting ever is at an advanced stage.
The camp meeting themed: “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” as taken from book of Matthew 5:10, is expected to win more souls to Christ.
Camp meeting is an extended event for Adventists (and non-Adventists) of all ages to gather and participate in spiritual seminars and activities. During the event, attendees often camp in tents.
In one of the camp meeting teachings, SDA co-founder Ellen Gould White,said: “Come to these meetings prepared to work. Leave your home cares, and come to find Jesus, and He will be found of you.”
As tradition, the meetings often provided a place for those who lived in unsettled areas to worship and gather as a community for a short period of time.
