Moses Born Again in Malawi
The following story of a student named Amara is shared with us by his WEI teacher, Darrell Wallace.
Amara came to the Restoration Bible and Agriculture Institute, a school-sponsored by churches of Christ, intending to learn about agriculture. Being Muslim, he became curious about Jesus.
He studied with brother Isaac Daye, a local gospel preacher. Amara became more and more passionate about Christ as he studied. He was baptized into Christ and renounced Islam.
After Isaac Daye baptized him, Amara went home to see his family share the good news. But his parents disowned him as their son, burned all of his clothing and possessions, and sought to kill him. Amara had to flee from his home and family.
Even though he became homeless, he was still zealous for Christ. None of his hardships deterred him from his passion for sharing the Good News of Jesus. Amara’s plan is to teach Muslims and tell them the story of Jesus. In 2019 while attending a mission workshop, I met the director of Darrell Memorial Bible Institute, a SIBI branch school in Nigeria. I learned that he knew Amara and was needing funds for him and his wife to attend the school.
I shared his need with my congregation. The church responded overwhelmingly. But COVID stopped all travel to and from Nigeria the following month. Amara and his family have been waiting to travel since then. In the meantime, I have been studying with Amara through WEI. He is growing in faith, preaching, leading a youth group, and mentoring others to take his place when he leaves.1
