The arts, entertainment and culture industries in Malawi have witnessed some of the popular artists making their public declaration about their faith. But the story of designer Dawa Loga-Lemberger, who is now a prophetess, is more surprising as she has established her own ministry called Fountain of Hope in Lilongwe.
“I believe that when your faith becomes stronger, you will soon focus on something more concrete in your course to getting closer to God,” said Prophetess Dawa Loga.
By the divine inspiration, Prophetess Dawa Loga now speaks for God as an associate pastor at Fountain of Hope Ministries, where she runs alongside her husband Prophet Vitu Kamanga, who serves as a senior pastor.
“Ours is a word based and prophetic ministry that will reach out to the world for God’s purpose to be fulfilled. We are both a living testimony looking back from where we are coming from to where we are now. We are humbled that God chose us to serve. We aim to live in truth and purity for the glory of our Father in heaven so that many can experience God’s power and grace through the church,” remarked Prophetess Dawa Loga.
The Prophetess said Fountain of Hope Ministries was established to serve the poor, widows, schools, family, orphans and all those seeking God. The ministry was also into inspirational talks to young people including girls.
There is no denying that we are living in an era of revelation, which has been heavily characterised with the booming of prophets, prophetess and prophesies. However, some quarters have received this news with mixed reactions with others speaking ill of other people’s calling.
But how does Prophetess Dawa-Loga describe her turning point?
“Firstly, I have always known and was told that I have a greater purpose in life. When opportunities have arose to do a certain thing, it has always been above my expectations. Little did I know that it was the grace and favour of God upon my life.
As a Christian, I also grew up with the hunger to not only attend church services, but to serve in church by being an usher and in praise team. So, my calling stems from a long background,” said Dawa-Loga.
She said her first prophecy in life came in 2010 through 2011 when she attended a Beth Moore Women’s conference in the United States of America (USA).
“That time I experienced God in a new way and my hunger to lead a women’s conference grew. I felt that only if women would connect at a spiritual level, sing together and be encouraged it would be wonderful,” said Prophetess Dawa-Loga.
She received her second prophecy by one of the influential speakers that she could equally influence women in her life. By then, she was active in cosmetics and fashion business as a director of Mary Kay Cosmetics in USA, where she used to train women on grooming, make up tips and how to build a business of their own.
When Prophetess Dawa-Loga returned to Malawi, she embarked on cosmetics, women clothing and tips on grooming while learning the industry. Then later she decided to host functions so that she met more people. After administering fruitful workshops with different people, the idea of Malawi Fashion Week sprung and she pioneered it.
However, it was the success story of the Malawi Fashion Week, which strengthened her ability to serving God.
“After the event, I grew closer to God, my desire to discover Him became stronger and I met my best friend and partner during this time when we started walking together in the Lord. The more I served God the more I grew in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. My dreams became vivid and close to real time and I begun to see visions,” said the Prophetess.
She said when she realised that God was up to something great, she adopted Matthew 6:33, seeking God’s kingdom first and letting everything follow in her life.
“Eventually I started hearing God’s voice and He started training me towards His purpose. He confirmed my calling to several servants of God and He eventually established to serving Him as a prophetess.
He later gave me the name Fountain of Hope Ministry to be run by myself and my husband Vitu. This is how I became a prophetess,’ narrated Dawa Loga.
Today, Fountain of Hope Ministries is serving in four branches in Lilongwe’s Biwi, Mbabvi, Ntandile and Nkwichi Secondary School from 1pm to 4pm every Sundays. It is also beamed live on Luso TV every Saturdays from 11:30 for an hour as well as half an hour on Dziko FM every Sunday morning from 8:30am.
Prophetess Dawa-Loga said she is now liberated knowing that she is living in God’s purpose and plan. n
