Today Bishop Emmanuel Makala started a two week walkathon to raise funds for the mission work of the diocese. The walkathon will be approximately 215 miles and go through the entire district. During the walk, they will involve preaching, praying, and baptizing.
The theme of the walkathon comes from 2 Thessalonians 3:8
…nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you.
It is a great blessing to the diocese and the church at large because Bishop Makala and other trustees of the diocese will visit all parishes and have an opportunity to meet all people that are available.
The money raised will be used for the ongoing needs such as motorcycles for pastors and evangelists, training, roofs for the new church and staff housing. These are the most urgent needs to maintain and support the growth of the diocese. The diocese started in 2012 and this will be the first such event. We hope to involve church members, partners and stakeholders through praying, contribution and walking together.
Other people who accompanied the Bishop are Assistant to the Bishop Rev. Trafaina Nkya, General Secretary Happiness Gefi, Pastor Greyson Kinyaha the District Pastor for Bariadi, colleagues from head office and church members from different Parishes.
The diocese extends its appreciation to everybody who supported this event Physically and Spiritually.
