Stories: Katie Ngoma

 

We first met this courageous lady as a group of us gathered around her bed in the post-surgical ward of a local Korean owned hospital. Hooked up to an IV that she monitored herself, she smiled wide at us while recounting the events that led up to her fifth (and thankfully, final) corrective surgery following the botched Caesarean section that brought her first and only child into the world.

From that day we have watched her miraculous recovery and fearless confidence in God. For those of you who will understand this reference, she is the “Trish Watson” of our church in Malawi. She is a “capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman” of the Proverbs 31 quality. She is a pensive problem-solver and planner, characteristics that are a bit rare culturally speaking for a Malawian. You will often hear her saying, “ah, but we can do it!”

She is married to a vigorous, enthusiastic man in our church named Brave, and they have a beautiful daughter named Yanko, who just turned a year old after Christmas. They are a faithful, godly family in our church and we are so grateful for them!

How You Can Pray for This Family:

Despite being well educated, which is not something every Malawian can boast, they struggle to find jobs they are amply qualified for since the job market here is poor. As a result, finances can be a challenge. However, you will often hear them speak faithfully, “I know my God is faithful” and “nothing is a problem.” Please keep them in your prayers as they endeavor to grow in seeking “first the kingdom of God” (Matt. 6:33).
