Bishop Charles Mjema Preaching

 

Members congratulate the Diocesan management and acknowledge achievements but also gave opinion for some departments to do much better. Rt, Rev. Charles Mjema from Pare Diocese insisted NED diocesan members to acknowledge their achievement and be proud for who they are today. We from outside feel so proudly about your achievements. During his teaching he stresses on UNITY and dependence in God himself. Where you are today is by grace of the LORD and not somebody else. Rev Mjema gave a lot of examples that NED parishmembers must stand united and work hard for the coming Jubilee celebration of 125 years of evangelism. You have come from far away; you must succeed in your plans before the mark of the Jubilee next year.
