Emmanuela Asong and her husband Joseph are part of our GMI team in Malawi. Joseph and Emmanuela arrived in Malawi in June 2012 and worked with others to establish the first Bible School with the Grace Churches in Malawi. Theological education and leadership training have been their primary focus, but they are involved in other ministries, such as preaching and teaching in Lilongwe and in other Grace Churches scattered all over Malawi, and Emmanuela’s business training and cooking,
Just to let you get to know Emmanuela’s background, she was born in the city of Bamenda in the northwest region of Cameroon. Her family was a strong Christian family and her father, a customs officer, also served as a church planter and elder in their family’s church. After obtaining her advanced level certificate in 2002, she proceeded to the Higher Teacher’s Training College (ENS) in Bambili and graduated with a Higher Diploma in teaching (Economics) after three years. With a firm determination to continue upwards on the educational ladder, she enrolled at the University of Dschang in 2006 where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Economics after two years.
Here is the update Emmanuela recently wrote about her ministries:
I am teaching almost 30 women at Area 44 in business training and cooking every other Wednesday. This venture is evangelistic in nature as most of the women in the class are not members of the Grace Churches of Malawi. So whenever we meet, Pastor Malongo Evans, pastor of the Area 44 Grace Church and one of our Bible school students, shares the Word with these ladies for 30 minutes. I also teach an average of 12 women in Area 38 every other Tuesday. We are receiving numerous testimonies of how the business training is transforming the businesses of the ladies. We also received positive reports of how the cooking training is strengthening families because of the appreciation of the recipes taught.
The building of the kitchen is progressing very well. We have about two months to finish and equip it if all the funds needed become available. Thanks.
In His Grace,
