The Redeemed for Purpose (RFP) Ministries will from Friday to Saturday next week hold its annual general conference at the Blantyre Baptist Church. In this interview with TAMANDANI MWALABU, the ministryâ€™s senior pastor, Aubrey Mwasinga, speaks about the event and its impact on the church.
Give us the background of your ministry.
RFP ministries is an interdenominational ministry which started in 2007. Our headquarters is in Blantyre and we meet every Sunday afternoon at the Baptist Media Centre hall. Our ministry has grown through mass crusades, planting of branches and our popular programme of assisting the underprivileged known as One Kwacha per day Programme.
You are holding your annual general conference. What is the objective of the gathering?
The objective of this gathering is to bring together people from all walks at one place where the entrance of Godâ€™s word will flood their hearts, heal the sick and release all that are oppressed by the devil. This is what Jesus taught us to do in Mathew 10 v 7 â€“ 8 when he said â€œpreach, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out devils.â€ Much more, this is a platform for the building of the saints.
What benefits will the meeting bring to the church?
In line with the theme which is â€˜God must increase in and through youâ€™, we intend to teach the body of Christ how they can rise up to a place of increase in God. The church ought to have a tremendous impact in the world and every believer is supposed to display the glory of God, whether in ministry, offices, businesses or in academics. Many Christians donâ€™t know how they can do this; hence, the church continues to have a minimal impact. I believe this conference will catapult the church to a higher level of glory.
Who can attend the conference?
The conference is open to everyone. Many people are coming and we expect more people from Blantyre to attend since we are hosting the event. We have arranged for pay minibuses to ease transport problems, especially after evening services.
What message do you have for those coming to attend the conference?
I encourage everyone to come with an open heart to receive what God has prepared. The one who has called us to this feast is God and surely, there is enough for everyone. Many have testified what God has done to their lives through these meetings and now itâ€™s your turn. If you have anyone sick in your neighborhood, village or workplaces bring them to this conference and God will touch their lives.Â
