"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because the Lord
has annointed me to bring good news to the afflicted, to
bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the
captives, freedom to the prisoners; to proclaim the
favorable year of the Lord."
History of the ministry of Good News Evangelistic
ministry of Good News was born out of a call from God for
Skip and Gwen Sanders to help the poor and the needy in
the 80's they started to pray for God to show them how
they could further the gospel and support the downtrodden
and the poor, never dreaming that God would literally
bring a man and his wife from Malawi C. Africa right to
their door. As Pastor Msamange shared of the plight of
the people in one of the poorest nations in the world,
their hearts were touched and a seed was planted . How
could they, in the little town of Corinth, New York,
reach out to that far away nation? This was a call that
would not go away, and in 1987 they took a step of faith
and paid their own way to C. Africa to see the situation
there. What a shock! They knew there were poor in the
world but, when they saw it first hand it was a real wake
up call. Visiting bush churches and having native pastors
share of the need, it became more and more evident that
God was showing them the fields were white but the
laborers were few. They decided in their hearts to take
up the challenge and do what they could to be an advocate
for the poor in Malawi. The work continues after 14 yrs.
The primary focus of the ministry in the beginning was to
give support to native pastors as they were out there on
the frontlines preaching and teaching and bringing people
to Christ, amidst much poverty and hardship. At that time
there were thousands of MozambIque refugees in Malawi due
to the war. Going into the refugee camps they taught the
Word, and distributed Bibles.Many were saved in the
refugee camps and took the gospel back when they returned
home. Gifts of bikes for pastors to travel out to visit
remote areas greatly helped them in their ministry. As
funds allowed provision of food, clothing, medicine,
teaching materials, Bibles were given to help the people.
Back home they started to share the dream they had and
others joined in and gave and prayed so that the work
could go forward. All glory to our God and Savior Jesus
As the scourge of aids took its toll in Malawi, many
children were and still are left without parents,
homeless and needing care. At that time they felt God was
leading them to take another step of faith and built an
orphan care building at one of the poorest bush areas.
This came about through prayer and the generosity of
churches and individuals that felt moved to help. The
truth of the scripture was made very clear to them:
" Pure and undefiled religion is to visit orphans
and widows in their distress" (James 1:27).
The first building was started in July 1999 and is up and
running. All by Gods supply there has been food and
clothing, blankets, medicine, lesson books and most of,
all realizing the marvelous love of God. This facility
houses about 40.
The second orphan care was started about 50 miles south
of the first one and now houses 100 children. This was
finished in 2001. Pastor Zulu, a precious man of God and
a faithful servant, oversees this work as well as
teaching the children to love God and worship him.
Brighton Wanyemba of Maranatha Ministry also oversees the
work and delivers supplies to both orphan care
facilities. Praise the Lord for faithful men. Pastor Zulu
has set up a group of volunteers from the village to cook
and care for the children. It is a big job and he needs
our prayers. A well has been completed and the people are
rejoicing to have clean water. "Whoever in the name
of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a
cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you he will
not lose his reward" (Mt. 10:42). This building was
financed by many friends of the ministry and is called
"Bernice's House", in memory of Jackie Tyner's
mother.Thank God for people who care enough to do Gods
word and give the love of God.
Jehovah Jireh Is Indeed Able
The estimated cost to give food, clothing and medicine ,
blankets, etc. to one orphan is approximately $10.00 a
month. Such a small amount can make a difference in these
children's lives. Who knows the future of some of these
children? They may rise up and lead many to Christ. The
monthly budget is now over $1000.00 per month. All funds
go directly to the work, no one receives a salary.
On the last mission trip in march 2001, another area of
need became apparent. With the death of so many young
parents due to aids, malaria and other diseases, there
are many elderly women doing their best to care for their
grandchildren . These women are existing on very little
and it is a great sacrifice on their part. They hoe and
plant their gardens in spite of failing health and aging
to provivde for these children. We were told of these
dear women wrapping a small piece of soap in their apron
to keep it safe as it is very precious to them. Also,
they are desiring to have a little tea-- such a small
thing to bring comfort. Working with Shanda, a young
Indian girl, the ministry of Good News is providing soap
and tea for many of these women.
And so the work of God goes forth by the faithfuness of
God and his servants.
Hallalulah! Our God reigns!
Prayer is needed as well as financial provision. Without
him we can do nothing.
