I, Fred Chilongo, serve with the WDA International Ministry in Zambia.
WDA has had a very big impact on my life, community, and beyond – especially on the people with whom I share WDA materials.
The lessons from RYH helped me very much during the time I lost my first wife. Her death affected me a lot. I grieved for her for about two years. During this period, each time I talked about her life in church or elsewhere I ended up shedding tears. Even visiting places that reminded me of her was a big blow to me. Some people were even encouraging me to remarry, thinking it would help me. Thankfully, the RYH program helped me process the pain of losing her. By the grace of God, I started experiencing joy, happiness, and hope again.
In my community, and especially in my church, WDA materials have really helped the current leaders with multiplying disciples. These leaders are encouraged to share the same concepts with their cell groups.
For some time now I have been on the National Committee of the Pastor’s Fellowship for my church denomination and I use this opportunity to share WDA with other pastors and they have shown keen interest in WDA programs.
My favorite Bible verse for my WDA ministry is John 15:16 “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will remain. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.”
