This summer Dutch Mennonite Mission organised its fourth edition of Strangers No More in Guatemala. Dennis Mumba, participant in SNM13 and leader at the Anglican Youth Ministry – Diocese of Northern Zambia, reflects here and posts his first experiences with applying back home what he experienced during SNM13.
Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. First of all I would like to say thank you to the almighty God who made it possible for me to attend this wonderful programme and for all the support rendered to me.
I would like to appreciate the way the programme was conducted by the seniors and the way teacher Rev. A. Maas taught me through the Joseph cycle. This really helped me to discover a lot of things that I’ve never known before in relation to the biblical interpretations.
Further I would like to thank the Casas-staff, fellow brothers and sisters across the world and my chairman Chris Maas, for the wonderfull, tireless work and compassion, and all the beloved in Christ we visited in various places in Central America.
Finally I would say this programme will really help me to bring peace and justice in various communities. For it’s only through this unity and fellowship of brotherly love that shall unite the world to the knowledge and unity of our heavenly father. May the peace of God that surpasses all the human understanding be with you till we meet again. I’ll try to keep on updating you on how I’m implementing this programme.
Yours in Christ service,
Post Scriptum I have started my programme with the Joseph cycle by explaining to a group of my fellow leaders and it went well. Now we are starting with applying it through teachings in youth meetings and bible studies. Shalom
