Ministry Partnership Development [ENC]

IMG_0714

My name is Kindness Shikwambana and I am in full time ministry in the University of Venda for Every Nation Campus. I believe in changing lives through the word of God and empowering young leaders to be equipped to share the gospel to others through love, because as ambassadors of Christ, we are all God representative of the faith in with we are believe to Christ. Every believer should feel free to live out their faith and believes without fear.

If we can reach out to young leaders we get the opportunity to have influence in many sphere of society and reaching the next generation as well, by establishing strong biblical foundation, to the people on campus. How do we do that? trough activities that we have in the local church like events socials for examples like color first, which is an event that we have to welcome first years into the family other activates include Engage Friday where we do evangelism.

You may be asking yourself where I fit in this whole picture. In the church I run engage department which is evangelism in the church. We have achieved much in this department as Venda campus. A brief overview is that we were previously not as strong in evangelism we only went out frequently in a year. But From last year around August I was equipped by the church to train other students on campus in our church to go out.

  • Here are some pictures we took through the year. Each picture tells each own story.

This is my small group

welcome first years to our campus by hosting a yearly social, to make them feel at home. And also getting to connect with them and get them into family. First year as a student are the hardest and loneliest at times. This is how we reach out to students. we host the event on campus hall.

In late August a mission team came to help us equip and train young leaders in the church, and during their stay it was recorded that there was around 72 re-commitment and first time commitments to Christ in only two weeks. It only goes to show that the harvest is ready, we only need laborers.

If you would like to partner with me financial, by sowing into my life and to the ministry so I can do what God has called me for. This is what’s called Ministry Partnership, where you pledge to send a certain amount of your choice to me every month. It not just that but a relationship that is formed. If you would like to partner with me and God on what he is doing on Venda campus contact me at my email kindnesslshikwambana@gmail.com, or kindnesslshikwambana65@gmail.com .

 

Our vision as a movement is

We exist to honor God by establishing Christ centred, spirit empowered and socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.

Where treasures lay

What is the one thing in life that you would never let go off, is it your partner? Is it your wife or maybe your family? It’s long been said in days of old, where your treasure is there your heart will be. Let’s not put our heart in money there is more important and valuable.

Heart-burn & a Heart soaked in tears

Heart-burn

Fire on my feet
Fire on my toes
Fire all around me.

Consumed with what’s people say is best.
But what’s always best for other can’t always be best for me.
____________________________________
I’m developing a heart condition, something is weighing on my heart and it won’t leave till I get it off my chest. And confront it.
—————————————————-
A heart soaked in Tears

My heart is soaked in tears.
Tears that continue to flow.
My mind thrown into chaos.
Clouded my others opinion.
My true heart,
Shine a path for me.
Will I take it?

—————————————————
God give me strength too. And the courage and wisdom to follow my heart.

Themba And The Two Bartender

e9e7a7ea-0fea-49a9-927f-d7c6d20aa24e

There lived a guy named Themba, he was tall and handsome with a nice trimmed cut with burned sides. He lived in the city of Gauteng Johannesburg, Themba at that point was going through a rough path in his life. His wife left and divorced him. Themba would go far deep into the City of Johannesburg to a bar named The Cocktail Lounge. It was the best bar in the city with star recommendations. It had the best music that echoed as it hit the walls, there were beautiful ladies serving on a trey that would take his mind off his sorrows. At what Themba loved most about it was the bartender, he would make drinks that would set him free from worry, stress, anxiety and the pain he felt.

There was another bar that was just around the corner in which Themba would pass every time he would make his way to The Cocktail Lounge. This bar was not the most glamorous bar in the block and there was a rumour that they only served some kind of water there. The bar was called Hill Tops. It only had a few people, most of the costumers left to go to the fancier bar that most people would say was a paradise.

Themba developed a curiosity about the bar, but he was happy at The Cocktail Lounge. Even though he was hurting the rest of the day except for the time he was at this Cocktail Lounge for the two hours of paradise. Whilst at the bar Themba would do what he always enjoyed doing which was talking to the bartender, he became something like Themba’s priest, while he was indulging himself in drinking. The bartenders name was Seth Damion. Oh he had a clever tongue whatever words he said, would sound like the truth. He knew how to make people feel good about themselves. He would give his customers advice that seemed to be the cure for all their life’s problem, but was actually a match that would light a spark to them.

One fateful day, as Themba was walking down the road to the place he rest his mind. To lay in sins bed for the next hour. He felt the other bar calling him, this time it was not like the other time, it was like he heard a quite whisper in his ear saying ‘come’. Themba decided that maybe it’s time for a change of scenery for a while, so he made his way to Hill Tops. The place was like nothing he imagined, it seemed to be a regular bar on the outside. So Themba took a sit at the bar. At this point Themba started a conversation with the bartender as it was his routine of doing at this point, Themba read the name Jes on the bartenders name tag. The bartender tried to correct him but was shut down, Themba just wanted to get his worries off his chest with a drink of Hunters Dry or something strong like Vodka.

Themba asked for a drink Hunters to get his night started, the bartender said ‘sorry we don’t serve that here’. Themba then asked for a drink of Gin iced, the bartender also did not serve that too. The bar men then told him the only drink they served at this bar was water. Themba chuckled and said ‘really the rumours are true’ with a look of disbelieve on his face, he asked himself what kind of bar is this that does not serve alcohol, he then finally said with a higher pitch what do you serve then’, he was frustrated at this point and needed a drink to soak all his sorrows and worries. Jes told him that they only sold water not just any water, a special type of water that could only be found here witch was actually shipped from a foreign country.

Themba took the drink and had a sip of it, its texture was like water, but the taste was not like everyday water, it had a sweet taste to it and it had a small punch to it. It was unlike anything he ever had. Themba started talking to the bar man and said things he never had said to others and during this time he realised things that he was at fault for and finally took responsibility for it, Jes was there as a ear to listen and guide him. As Themba continued talking he drank more and more water. And he realised the more he drank the happier he would become. He asked the bar man what kind of water was this and the bar man answered, ‘Its living water’. He then further went on to say ‘My name is not Jes, but Jesus the uniform is getting old and I need to get that fixed, are you enjoying your drink.’

Themba was shocked and amazed he knew that there was something different to this bartender, he knew this was true deep inside his soul. His mind was blown wide open, he asked Jesus what is the reason for this encounter and he said ‘I am here for you, I am here so that you can have life, and have it to the fullest. I love you and want to set you free from the hole you are in, I’ve been called from the start and today you heard me. Take my living water and let me in so I can help you’. Themba was happy to surrender his life to the bartender, he knew there is nothing that can go wrong with him by his side.

From that day Themba was happier in life, and full of joy. He stopped drinking and changed his life for the better. Hill Tops bar mysteriously disappeared after that day. Themba thought maybe he was drunk that day and he was seeing things, but that day illusion or not his life was changed forever. Themba felt like he was reborn, a new person. He searched for the place where he could get some of that drink of water he had had in the bar, He found a church although the water did not come in the same shape, he still knew and felt, a gentle touch of that bartenders presence in the church. He finally was set let free from the prison he was in and brought in to the light, a better life of purpose and never ending joy like a fairy tale with a Happily Ever After.

 

The End.

we all have seasons where we face had times and we tend to down in emotions of anger, regret, loneliness. At this time we would make bad decision in attempt to comfort ourselves. Like drinking or any substance and there are those who would even scar themselves. Well i’m here to tell you today that its not over. You don’t have to go through the worst on your own, you may think nobody person understand you, but there is one who knows you inside out, he wants to be with you in this times, where you are pushing everyone away. He want to listen to all the things you want to say. He has not come t o condemn you (John 3:17), but to give you  life and life in abundance (John 10:10). He want you to come lay your burdens on him, so he can give rest to your soul and remove all the weight that on your chest (Matt 11:27-28). Don’t give up God got you, just call on him and he will be there.

John 3:17 (condemnation)

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

John 10:10 (abundant life)

10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Matthew 11:28-29 ( Rest & peace of mind)

 28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am[f]gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Why write?

285a82bd-2aa7-4f8e-a7a1-85ac5c7d3011

When pen meets paper

And the Ink splashes onto the paper.

My mind becomes clear as water.

As emotions flow like a river.

 

My heart utters its truth in words.

My lips can bear to speak.

It paints and inks a masterpiece.

Of the hearts true beauty captured in words.

 

My blood boils without my pen and paper

My soul is weighed down.

My heart weakened by life’s blows.

Inner thoughts are filter by words.

 

As I write, my broken heart heals.

Pieces put back together.

My mind is at peace.

My body relaxes.

All is well in my Being.

 

And sometimes I write.

To speak truth.

To encourage and inspire.

To change and alter life.

To show my unseen love for you.

The Truth

 

Conflict raises in my being

Between two loud voices.

Between my mind and soul.

One is of logic and the other feeling.

 

Where lays the truth

Heavy decision must be made

Only one voice can sway my path

Which path should decide my future?

 

My mind is clever.

It comes at me with lists and what if’s

Like a super computer, weighing the scales.

Data gathered from all works of life and others experiences.

 

My soul speaks

But what I hear is demands action

It lives in the present, it disregards past experiences.

Raw emotion pulling my ear to listen.

 

God own spirit speaks to my soul

My soul agrees with this spirit and my soul screams louder.

This voice in conflict with people expectations and wishes of your life.

 

Soul and mind.

Which will my choice.

The truth of who I am hidden in my feelings

And counterfeited truth of what I should do in the mind.

 

What will I pick?

Feelings or Mind.

Reflection

fefa0d96-ea85-4264-98d0-6d39599eea4f

I am brunette

I am beautiful yet gorgeous.

And I am always on point.

 

Tall long legs,

Blue eyes.

Slim waist

Evenly toned skin.

 

Every day I face the mirror

It’s reflects truth of

How I look?

It tells me what works,

And what doesn’t

 

Its opinion is non bias.

10 min in day.

It judges my look.

And hands me the final vote.

 

When I leave Mirrors reflection

I am own my own.

Unable to view self (me).

I reflect back on what mirror showed me earlier.

 

I don’t forget my image,

I took a snap shot and

Stored into my memory.

Memories remind me of my beauty.

 

Mirror reveals.

Mirror tells truth.

Except the hearts reflection.

And how fare the heart?

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Been thinking on What James said in James 1:24-26. We as people use mirrors every single day from brushing our teeth to calming our hair and for the ladies who use the mirror to do makeup. After all is done with we leave the mirror knowing that we look okay. You definitely won’t forget how you look. Like the way we look at ourselves in the morning we should look at it like the Bible, not just seeing it or browsing through it but be doers of what it says.

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

I love women and the role the play in society. I love the strength and the unconditional love they have to overcome trials and obstacles, which I have seen from my own mom and the friends I have around me. Like people MJ, Dineo, Matevhu, Tshili and others. Women should be appreciated and valued more. I appreciate you guys, lots of love.

Did you know each time you feed the poor you are feeding Jesus, or give cloths you give to Him. Even when you visit someone in prison. In Matthew 10:40-45. You don’t have to go far to make a difference where you are is just fine. Start something that will benefit others. The best live lived is one that is in service of others.

 

Matthew 25:34-40

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you id for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’

Are you supermen?

Are you the rich?

Are you the smartest?

The most intelligent or popular?

 

That’s okay if you’re not!

Neither am I.

I am a Clark Kent.

 

But

We are somebody.

You matter.

You can make a difference.

You too can change the world.

 

How?

 

By the power of Love

Love the person next to you

Love the stranger you don’t know

Love the bagger you see on the street

Love your wife

Love your brother

Love the world

And love yourself.

 

Look deep with yourself

See what you have to offer, and give what you have.

You are a gift to the world.
