God spoke to 5 of our team about building a prayer house.

Faith to build the prayer house?

When we came back from the UK we, and 4 staff returning from missions or in the base, said they all felt like we should build a prayer house. So, with enough money to start but not finish we have stepped out in faith again praise God! It's a house just to talk to God alone, not for teaching, not for meetings, not even prayer meetings when we talk to each other, we want this prayer house to be for seeking God alone, a place set aside for him, His space, His heart His vision. I love stepping out in faith when I know He’s leading, We’re confident this is Him and so though our building fund is now in the negative He will provide! To do a thing when you have confidence because you have the substance needed is short of faith where God is calling us, to walk by faith but not by sight. I love to feel- the excitement of God’s Word in me that He has spoken a thing that will happen and my will responds to step out trusting Him that I have the substance because we have what He has said. I find I can’t walk by faith if all I look at is the red sea full of water in front of me, my bank account rapidly emptying of cash, I can’t step out in faith. The gift of faith that God can give us- what I taste again as I share this with you- faith that ushers me into the excitement of meeting with God on my knees in His house, seeing the staff and students walking out with tears in their eyes and glory in their hearts after an hour with their lovely Savior. A new presence and God centered ministry flowing out of what has now developed into a two story prayer tower of encounter. I can feel the fear and self-criticism as I let my mind dwell too long on how my own finances will leave a prayer tower unfinished- the scripture ringing in my ears from Luke 14:28-30  28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— 29 lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? But then faith obliterates fear as I know that we do not labor in vain when the builder and maker is God, that my end, my limit, my lack is where His miracle will manifest and when it does the glory goes to Him because it was not built because of our riches but because of obedience to step out and walk an unknown path where He leads us.

I write this for two reasons, firstly as I feel God's encouragement to share the process of our faith walk with friends and family, sharing the battles and struggles of developing 3 other outreach centers and two building projects on site, developing a team and paying off the last of our property loan this year. We want to do this so that we can Praise God together when He does it, we want you to be more connected- more invested on a heart level with the amazing breakthroughs that He brings because you have maybe tasted of the process of faith. Secondly we believe that God is calling others to step out in faith- to not look at your substance and ability when you make a decision and choose to step out, but to look at His infinite substance and ability in you. To take time to dig deep in the place of intimacy with Jesus and then when you taste faith, mixed in the whispers of God in your heart and the good desires He is growing there, to step out and start to build your tower of faith on the rock of His Word.

DTS Graduation

In an amazing celebration on the 16th of January our community joyfully graduated all 19 disciples of Jesus who had been through our 5 month training school and sent them back to the 6 nations. Well not all of them- 6 or 7 are joining us on staff in a couple of weeks for their next stage in the adventure of following Jesus where he leads, to Join Holy Spirit demonstrating and releasing the Kings presence and rule on earth. Please keep praying for them all as they are in the midst of their own transitions from intense focused life here, that they would be able to put into practice what God has spoken to them during their time with us. find Information about the next DTS starts sept 1th 2016

Ntaja Outreach

My favorite testimony from this outreach was of a Muslim village closed to the gospel that became open when they saw a significant healing in their midst. Another Islamic village now hosts a bible study in the chief's house hosted by his wife while he goes to the mosque. outreach photos

Zambia Outreach

For the non-swimming Malawian team mates, this became a life changing adventure as the 4 hour boat trip across Lake Kariba threatened to take their lives. As a storm approached the two small boats could no longer manage, but they found shelter and waited for calm and a bigger boat before joining a church planting team in this un-reached area where a student from our last DTS has made his mission home. outreach photos

Mankhamba Outreach

After lifts on the backs of bicycles and 2 hours of walking up the mountain, the breakthrough that the team saw here was a manifestation of Christ’s reconciliation as neighboring ladies who had not been speaking after home visits started to come together and the team found gifts of gratitude outside their house each morning. outreach photos

Mulanji Outreach

3 outreach teams went out for 8 weeks, the team under the towering mountain of Mulanji started with a healing crusade where a boy started walking, and had villagers come for 10 days straight for afternoon conferences. A dumb girl who started to speak was baptized with a group on the last day. outreach photos

Phalombe Outreach

Travelling around the back of mount Mulanji on dirt roads, two teams spent 2 weeks each and helped to launch the new Phalombe outreach center that will start in June, fighting their own battles with scores of camel spiders in their accommodation. outreach photos

Zimbabwe Outreach

Each team went to another language group with the Zimbabwe team going to support a pastor in Gweru who wants to start a YWAM base. One of our students was amazed to hear God direct them to go to the police station in this police controlled republic and found an open door and brought an inspector back to join the church membership. outreach photos

Nkhata Bay Outreach

This intrepid team avoided the space cakes in Malawi’s porn, drug and alcohol capitol of Malawi making strong connections with local churches who want us to start a YWAM base here. Some team members love this idea, because of the cakes or beach? outreach photos

Primary School in Chiwiya

The project is slowly moving ahead. We are in the process of applying to the government for a 5 hectare plot of Land to build the school on. The designs are all done now and the team in the UK lead by Ed Ravenhall and Terry Sherman have raised 10% of the funds needed for the building of the school. The village committee is meeting regularly, but we do feel in need of prayer for quick breakthrough over Land, so building can start on schedule later this year, the cogs of government can sometimes move slowly without the oil of the Spirit.

Paying off the property loan

This is the final year to pay the loan on the property. We have seen God provide more than $170,000 for the purchase and building of the base here, He is so good. We are now stopping building (when God's prayer house is finished of course) and this year is focused on finishing the payment on the interest free loan. It expires at the end of the year in December and Suzy and I are funneling everything we can possibly spare into paying it of each month while still eating and the like :) We have $40,000 still to pay and we have calculated that at the end of the year we will have brought that down to $24,000 so that’s the miracle we need. Maranatha! pictures of the property and how to invest in the kingdom by giving

New room for more families

We will soon have 5 families and 7 children on base, praise God! Kids Beth and Ben's ages from the UK and Malawi. It has brought us into a glorious problem of the need to again expand. The 2 store rooms have been moved and now converted into a 3 room suite that can house another family. Ceilings and plumbing are going in right now. Our next family arrives in March, but I won’t rush the builders as it will be finished and paid for in time. take a walk through and invest in the kingdom by giving

Car port, store rooms or classroom?

Last year our big tent was blown flat by the storm that brought the floods and displaced 200,000 people. So without enough money to build our classroom/ community outreach center yet, we decided to build the store rooms / truck port. It’s a monster of a building 5m tall and 10m x 10m inside half taken by two stories of store rooms, and the other (at the moment the classroom). more pictures


Healing rooms

We ended 2015 with a bang and a seminar from healing rooms Africa. Please pray as we have been planning and hope to open our gates to a weekly healing room- well healing tent- joining with people from 4 local churches who were also trained. Daniel has been asked to then take on the role of training people for more healing rooms around Malawi. Let the healing rivers flow! Kingdom come here in Blantyre as it is in heaven where there is NO sickness pain or disease!

New staff members joining

We will have 3 Malawians maybe 4, Annie, Cynthia and Chitani from the last DTS joining us in a week for orientation and preparation for their launch into missions. Chris, Hannah, Caleb and Lily Scutt from the UK have joined us moving into Shyundi cottage where Calen & Emma stayed. Tom & Sarah Hague -another English couple will join us in March after their DTS finishes in South Africa. Frank Kratz is from South Africa and will move to Mankhamba outreach center as soon as the rain stops falling and the road there is dry enough to drive him and his things through to the village!

New outreach center in Phalombe

The focus of this center will be orphan care church ministry and youth and pastors training we think. This is the heart of Patrick and Dalitso Chipanda who have served with us for 5 years here at the Blantyre base. They are the best of us and we will send out their team of 4 in June. Their house is ½ finished with a miracle needed as normal for the funds to put in windows and doors etc. We will be training them and other staff in base leadership over the next months, it feels like a new challenge for me that I am excited to grow into.

National Leadership Team

We were pleased to welcome Mike Fred, Patrick Malizani to join the team along with the existing National leadership team, Joseph Chicopa, Patrick Chipanda, Amanda Van  Saasan and I. We have a representative of from each geographical location and 3 of us are taking it in turns to represent Malawi in the regional gathering, next meeting Patric C and I will be going.

Translating 'Is that really you God?' into Chichewa

We are in the final months of editing our translation of “Is that really You God?” by Loren Cunningham YWAMs founder. Its one of the most translated books in the world and has made a big impact in releasing waves of young people into missions in many nations on earth. We are now seeking a professional editor for our final edit and then the funds to print the first 500 which is the minimum at the local AOG press. invest in the kingdom by giveing


Regional YWAM meeting in Beira Mozambique

For the first time in 6 years the base has been running we all went to the regional conference, well 43 of us did. Crammed into the big red truck and the Scutt's land cruiser. It was an epic journey right down to the Indian ocean where we met YWAMers from our south central region Zimbabwe, Angola, Mozambique and Zambia. Christoph, our pastor friend from Germany came with us and Holy Spirit came in power. We are excited about how God is going to impact this region as we stand together in the power of God! pictures of the epic trip

Dear friends and family,
Thank you so much for your support, prayers and encouragement that makes all of this possible. As you hold us in your prayers we would especially appreciate prayer for the following.

For the start of healing rooms to go well with an open heaven of healing manifesting here.

For the new prayer room to be finished and be a place we enter into intimacy with God and his presence

For provision to pay off the remaining $40,000 USD loan on the property this year as we have 11 months to pay!

For the distribution of 10,000 Mark's gospels in Chichewa in this community to be effective and bring transformation and salvation.

Many thanks

With Great love and many Hugs from our family 

Daniel Suzy Ben & Beth
