Stephen Lungu visits UBI students

13 Mar

On Thursday 8 March, AE’s international CEO, Stephen Lungu, preached at UBI’s (Union Bible Insitute) chapel service. He was met with great excitment, especially from the students who are using his book ‘Out of the Black Shadows’ as a text book for their English Literacy class.

Mr Murray from UBI welcomed Stephen in Chichewa, much to the uproarious enthusiasm of the other students.

Stephen then shared a brief message based on the themes of the book he is currently working on ‘Treasures of Darkness’, in which he deals with his journey in forgiveness and inner healing.

He shared how we can experience God’s blessing even in our times of darkness because He, in His love for us, uses these times to discipline us. He shared around the themes of: the Discipline of Delay; the Discipline of Discrimination; the Discipline of Discomfort;  amongst others. The central theme being that often in times of great trial God is doing something within us for our good, and using difficult circumstances to position us for His Glory and our good.

After the chapel service the students flocked to Stephen so that he could sign their books and they could have photos with him. Many shared how they found his story encouraging and gave them hope for their own lives.
