Who am I? I am that! Nothing can change that. Word, intellect and concepts can never change that. I spent days and nights staring at the blank page, searching the deepest corners of my mind; who have I been, what have I seen in this whole life of mine, when and where did I see it? When and how will I see it again? This is an introduction of myself.
I am Dixon, born to the family of six members to Mr. and Mrs. Dambo – three ladies and three gentlemen. I am a third to the gentlemen side and sixth to the whole family. I have been raised in three different families; my biological family, brother’s family, and lastly in an adopted family. I was born on 03 March 1995, in Malawi, from Phalombe District but raised in Lilongwe; the Capital city.
I was born again in 2005, but began reflecting a Christ-like life in 2015. It was in the middle of 2015 when I started ministering the word of God, but even then I didn’t take it seriously. In fact, I used to run away when chances availed to preach. Some of my challenges were fear and age related. This continued until I came across Mark 16:15 which says “Go into all the word and preach the gospel to every creature.” I welcomed the idea of preaching and delivering the gospel until I become obsessed with it.
I have a good relationship with my friends and those people who are not my friends, for the Bible commands love for each other. I am also generally sociable and interactive in personality and character. I am morally strict with myself while being considerate of other people’s values, ideas and beliefs. I like reading spiritually enlightening books, and gospel songs.
I have good expectation towards my future especially towards the work of God. In Mark 10:27 the bible says “With God all things are possible.” The problem of human beings is that we have considerable belief in ourselves than God. If a person believes much in himself s/he set out limits that I can do this and that, and I can’t do this and that, forgetting that with God all things are possible. I strongly believe that God lives in me and with faith he will use me the way he wants me to be. My potential, capability, and experience towards the work of God is finite, but through the help of the Holy Spirit and the theological studies that I am perusing at African Christian College, I will learn a lot and bring lost souls to the kingdom of God.
Our environment shapes the way we see ourselves. It’s everyone’s responsibility to take a good care of the environment that one belongs to. This is because the environment is our carrier towards the work of God. It’s bad to see the gospel being spoiled yet we have the capability to fix it, but we are just watching. I put myself in the words of Joshua that, “As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
