Chinsapo is a small town just southwest of Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi, East Africa. In October, the Lutheran congregation in Chinsapo invited a team from Lutheran Hour Ministries—Malawi to hold an outreach event there. The occasion: a visit from the bishop of the national Lutheran church to commemorate the completion of the congregation’s projects to bring electricity and clean water to the community.

“The LHM—Malawi center staff and volunteers provided personal evangelism, music and drama to reach the people in Chinsapo Township,” says Audience Relations Coordinator Aubrey Bunguzu. Ministry center staff and volunteers went door-to-door distributing stickers and booklets to promote their activities and generate conversations about faith. The Kuunika Band (the center is known locally as Kuunika Media Ministry) attracted attention and shared the Good News through song and spoken testimony.

For the audience, “the best” of the witnessing activities was the presentation by the drama team, said Bunguzu. “People laughed and cheered,” he explained, “as they received the Gospel message through biblcal comedies and tragedies.”

Every day, Lutheran Hour Ministries international ministry centers in more than 30 countries make practical use of culturally relevant means of spreading the Gospel. Music, drama, puppet theatre, dance, rallies and children’s programs continue to be successful in many cultures because they provide ways of connecting with people, building relationships and opening hearts and minds to the love and power of Jesus Christ.
