Christmas Greetings 2014


Clenerius-Chimpali-2013We are moving towards Christmas, the time we remember those who toiled for the faith we have received and those still toiling for the mission. Our fulfilment is in the trust we have in Jesus who is to come and stay in our heart and in his mission. Many of you have touched many people’s lives knowingly and unknowingly. You may have become another Jesus present to so many people. Therefore, though I may be busy with so many things, I have to spared this time to wish you Happy Christmas and thank each one of you for what you have being to others especially those you touched in the soil of Zambia. Continual praying for Zambia so that the will of God may be done dispute the witnessed court cases and hot debates. May Christ be born in the hearts of all politicians and all people of Zambia especially that they once more have a right to decide for their leader. 

Happy Christmas and New Year, 2015. Your Folela through and through. Clenerius Mutale, M.Afr

sylvester_chimengeIt is true that we have celebrated Christmas for many years but maybe the incarnation has not yet taken place in us. When the Word becomes flesh and dwell in our hearts, He brings transformation in our lives so that we can look at others with the eyes of love, touch others with tender and compassion and embrace every person with true love. It is my prayer that this season of joy may be a period for you and me to be moulded in the image of Jesus Christ our Lord. I wish you a merry Christmas and prosperous New Year 2015.
