Suddenly, the accident took place affecting head, mute for 4 months, parlayed one leg and one hand. Please see the photo attached. Having tried witchcraft, Hindu temple , Islam mosque but in vain. This period is the darkest period.
One of my non Christian neighbours told me to read some Jesus Christ book so that I may be healed. I eagerly searched the website since I am qualified in computer, found brother Brian Duncalfe who gave me the holy bible – picture attached.
I started reading in mind only as my tongue could not utter a even single word, from 1 Peter onwards -randomly selected. Yes, my thought, thinking, body, souls were touched. Slowly sensing in tongue and body was visible in my mind. I found that words in this holy bible are powerful and started reading from New Testament the Book of Matthew – how God’s touched me – it was a marvellous experience, slowly recovered.
Now I can talk and run. I traveled to the city to join Bible College to study further. Yes, how our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ lead me, ultimately I started and built a small church called New Life Prayer House in my native village called Valavanur Village in May 2018.

Shares His Story
I came to know the Lord Jesus in 1978. I was a drug addict. Jesus had spoken to me seven times in 7 years. I grew up in London, the youngest of 7 children. I had four brothers and two sisters, they had all been in trouble with the police and some had been in prison. My father said to me, 'I hope you are not going to be like the rest.' I turned out worse; I ran with gangs, bikers, drug dealers. I had been in prison three times.
It was not long after my second term in prison I became a drug dealer. I was dealing in a pub one night and had taken some myself. I passed out, and my workers tried my pulse and checked me over and decided I was dead. They took me out the pub and dumped in an empty house and rapped me up in a carpet. I was left there for four days. I came back, I managed to work my way out of the carpet. I went outside and found out what day it was, I was scared, not knowing what had happened. I met the people who dumped and they were shocked and explained that I was dead and dumped me.
Some months later after another prison sentence, I met a girl who told me about Jesus. She took me to church, and a man at the front was talking about all the things I had been doing. He asked if anyone would like to accept Jesus put your hand up, I did and went up to the front for prayer. I left the church that night and felt as though nothing had happened. I carried on taking drugs but could not get high. I thought that something was messing with my mind and went back to church the next Sunday. The message was preached, Jesus put me on the floor and totally set me free. I became a new creation that night. This is only a small part of the story, but the beginning of a wonderful journey, of struggles, miracles, and amazing events. I am to share of what our wonderful God did for my wife, me and my seven children and now ten grandchildren.
Amos & Catherine Testimony
(Left click on pictures to enlarge.)
We are a wife and a husband, Malawians by nationality. Catherine became a born again Christian in 2010, while I(Amos) became a born-again Christian in 2014.
We had been the Roman Catholic Christians for so many years. My wife was the first to step out from the Roman Catholic Church, and she joined Jesus True Way Pentecostal Church in 2010 and she received Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Saviour of her life. It was so interesting that my wife now became my teacher of the word of God. My wife never grew tired of teaching me even though to me it was a burden by then. In 2014, it was when I received Jesus Christ as the Lord and Saviour of my life. Soon after this process, I had so many dreams almost three times a weak . And let me share you one of the dreams I had:
There was a very big building. In there, there were many people some were standing, some of them were sitting, and others were sleeping. The building had two main doors, and all the doors were closed. On the other door stood two men and I, stood on the second door. The two men shouted with anger, and I quoted" we have come to take these people because they are ours" I answered them that" you will never take these people from here because even God knows that today the 16th of October (The date was exactly the 16th)". It was when my door opened. The people who slept, who sat down joined those who were still standing and started stepping out using the door which I stood. I waited for all the people to come out of the building and lastly, there was an old woman who was not fit to walk properly. I held her by hand and started walking behind, following the people, and I walked a very long distance escorting these people. Then I woke up.
Therefore, we sat down and discussed to start the Door To Door Soul Winning Ministry. We had been praying for the Ministry, and then we started our Ministry of reaching people with the word of God mainly in the remote/rural areas. We decided to go in these and teach the word of God because most of the people have different cultures that hinder their desire to practice Christianity. So the big percentage of these people put their strong desire in practicing their cultural beliefs. That is why we decided to outreach these people with the word of God. We've been covering a distance may be around or over 8km on foot with my lovely wife.
In this journy of serving the Lord, we've been gone through different circumstances. Sometimes people were interested to hear the word of God and sometimes we were rejected not to share the word of God. Some of the people reached to an extent of telling us that they don't know Jesus Christ what they know is to dance Nyawu (Gulewamkulu). As a family, we agreed not to allow any discouragement in us. Truly speaking, we have seen the hand of God upholding us.
I did certificate at Bible Training Centre For Pastors(BTCP), I did Diploma in Ministry & Christian Leadership at Dunamis Ministerial College, I did Diploma in Expository Preaching at Central African Preaching Academy(CAPA). Currently, my wife and I too, we are studying Missions at Evangelical Alliance For Preacher Training and Commission (EAPTC School Of Missions). Not only that but also God blessed us with a second-hand car. From 2014 up to date, no any disagreement in our marriage. Living together with My wife Catherine, truly speaking, she is a big blessing to me from God. We are living peacefully and serving Christ together.
Now, let us tell you that we have been discouraged and even cheated in different ways. Sometimes by our own friends, but we stood, and we are still standing unshakeable in serving our Lord Jesus Christ. We are still going forward with our Door To Door Soul Winning Ministry and it is our wish to lead many souls to Christ. And we believe that God will not allow us to be ashamed (Rom.10:11). So we are struggling to reach the unreached because the same souls we are reaching today, will be our witnesses in the in the eyes of the Lord. Therefore, our dear fellow servants of Jesus Christ, we urge you not to be discouraged by any situation or lack of resources. We are encouraging you because everything is possible with God. Teach the true word of God, proclaim the gospel and lead people to Christ. "Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” (Mk 10:27)
God bless you all
Amos & Catherine
Amos & Catherine's original request.
Dear Brian Duncalfe,
Thank you for your feedback.
I requested the Bible because I don't have any means of getting it. Here in Malawi, people in cities and in some of the urban areas know the word of God because of the availability of the pastors. But if you can go into rural areas, people are busy following their traditional cultures. They don't know the word of God. The reason being that the
small churches are very far apart from each other, so they don't even respect Saturdays and Sundays.
Therefore, my aim and interest are to outreach them with the Word of God using the Bible and other materials if possible. Through that way, God will remove them form spiritual blindness, that’s my aim.
