SDA Counselling group cheer needy families at Jenda

A Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) social media group that convenes on Whatsapp dubbed SDA Counselling says it will continue helping less privileged households in the country.

The religious group made the calls Sunday afternoon at Jenda in Mzimba district where it reached out to needy families with assorted items.

Speaking to Nthanda Times after the event, the group’s treasurer Msakambewa, a Lilongwe based member who led the group on Sunday expressed the group’s satisfaction upon reaching out to needy households during the exercise.

Msakambewa said he is delighted to have been part of the team and the process from the beginning until the final day.

“I was glad to see the smiling faces of all the beneficiaries and how grateful they were”, adds Msakambewa.

The group is comprised of over 100 Seventh-Day Adventist church members from across the country who interact on WhatsApp to share the gospel, promote health families and relationship among others.

Commenting on the development, Pastor Lungu who is serving at Jenda in Mzimba district commended the group for extending their charity works to the area and requested them to continue supporting those in need.

“We have seen that you have taken a great part to preach the gospel. Continue helping people. I don’t have many words to say but I wish that God should bless you,” said Lungu.

One of the beneficiaries Mr. Noel Kamanga cited Acts of Apostles verse from the Holy Book saying that the hand that giveth is more blessed.

“It is our prayer that God should be blessing you because there are also needy people like us, so it is our prayer plea that you should continue with this gesture to receive God’s blessings,” said Kamanga.
