Ine ndi mwamuna wanga komanso mchimwene wanga ndi mkazi wake titauzidwa za utumiki winawake tinayankha kuti, “Tikhoza kuchita zimenezo.” N’chifukwa chiyani tinavomera utumikiwo, nanga Yehova anatidalitsa bwanji? Dikirani ndikufotokozereni kaye mbiri yanga.

NDINABADWA mu 1923 m’tauni ya Hemsworth ku Yorkshire m’dziko la England. M’banja lathu tinalimo ana awiri ndipo wamkulu anali mchimwene wanga Bob. Bambo anga ankadana ndi chinyengo chimene chinkachitika m’zipembedzo ndipo ndili ndi zaka 9, anapeza mabuku ofotokoza nkhani imeneyi. Zimene anawerenga m’mabukuwo zinawasangalatsa kwambiri. Patapita zaka zochepa, m’bale wina dzina lake Bob Atkinson anafika kunyumba kwathu ndi galamafoni ndipo tinamvetsera nkhani inayake ya M’bale Rutherford. Tinazindikira kuti gulu limene linkafalitsa nkhaniyi ndi limenenso linafalitsa mabuku amene bambo anga anapeza aja. Makolo anga anapempha M’bale Atkinson kuti madzulo alionse azibwera kudzadya kwathu n’cholinga choti azidzatiyankha mafunso okhudza Baibulo. Nthawi ina anatiitanira kumisonkhano imene inkachitikira kwa m’bale wina yemwe ankakhala chapatali ndithu. Tinavomera nthawi yomweyo ndipo pasanapite nthawi ku Hemsworth kunakhazikitsidwa mpingo waung’ono. Pasanapite nthawi yaitali, atumiki adera (amene panopa timati oyang’anira dera) ankafikira kwathu, komanso tinkakonda kuitana apainiya kuti adzadye kunyumba kwathu. Kucheza ndi anthu amenewa kunandithandiza kwambiri.

Tinayamba kuchita bizinezi koma bambo anga anauza mchimwene wanga kuti, “Mukadzafuna kuchita upainiya, tidzasiya bizineziyi.” Bob anavomera ndipo atakwanitsa zaka 21 anachoka n’kumakachita upainiya. Patapita zaka ziwiri, nanenso ndinayamba upainiya ndipo pa nthawiyo n’kuti ndili ndi zaka 16. Nthawi zambiri, mkati mwa mlungu ndinkalalikira ndekha ndipo ndinkagwiritsa ntchito galamafoni ndi makadi olalikirira. Koma Yehova anandidalitsa chifukwa ndinayamba kuphunzira ndi munthu wina amene anayamba kutumikira Yehova. Achibale ambiri a munthuyo anakhalanso a Mboni za Yehova. Chaka chotsatira, ndinapemphedwa kuti ndikhale mpainiya wapadera limodzi ndi Mary Henshall. Tinatumizidwa kugawo la ku Cheshire komwe kunalibe mpingo.

Nkhondo yachiwiri yapadziko lonse itafika pachimake, akazi ankauzidwa kuti azithandiza pa ntchito zina zokhudza nkhondoyo. Koma anthu ogwira ntchito zachipembedzo sankauzidwa zimenezi. Choncho tinkaganiza kuti ifenso atisiya chifukwa tinali apainiya apadera. Koma akhoti anakana zimenezo moti anandiweruza kuti ndikakhale kundende masiku 31. Chaka chotsatira, nditakwanitsa zaka 19 ndinakalembetsa kuboma kuti ndili m’gulu la anthu amene chikhulupiriro  chawo sichiwalola kuthandiza nawo pa nkhondo. Akuluakulu a boma anandisumira m’makhoti awiri koma m’makhoti onsewa ananena kuti ndilibe mlandu. Pa nthawi yonseyi, ndinkadziwa kuti mzimu woyera ukundithandiza ndipo Yehova akundigwira dzanja komanso kundilimbitsa.​—Yes. 41:10, 13.

NDINAPEZA MNZANGA

Anabwera ku Hemsworth kudzakhala ndi mchimwene wake dzina lake Dennis, yemwe anali mpainiya wapadera. Bambo awo anawaphunzitsa za Yehova kuyambira ali aang’ono ndipo Arthur anabatizidwa ali ndi zaka 17, pomwe Dennis anabatizidwa ali ndi zaka 16. Pasanapite nthawi yaitali, Dennis anapemphedwa kuti akachite upainiya ku Ireland ndipo Arthur anatsala yekha. Makolo anga anachita chidwi kwambiri ndi Arthur chifukwa anali mpainiya wakhama komanso wakhalidwe labwino ndipo anamutenga n’kumakhala naye. Ndikapita kukaona makolowo, ine ndi Arthur tinkakonda kutsukira limodzi mbale. Kenako tinayamba kulemberana makalata. Mu 1948, Arthur anamangidwanso ndipo anakhala kundende kwa miyezi itatu.

Tinkayesetsa kugwiritsa ntchito bwino ndalama ndipo pa nthawi ya tchuthi tinkapeza ndalama zina pochita ganyu yothyola zipatso. Yehova ankatidalitsa ndipo tinapitiriza kuchita upainiya.

Tili ndi apainiya anzathu pa njinga yamoto yokhala ndi mipando m’mbali

 Mumzinda wa Dublin ku Irish Republic, apainiya ankakonda kukhala kwa Mlongo Ma Rutland yemwe anatumikira Yehova mokhulupirika kwa nthawi yaitali. Tinafikira kwa mlongoyu n’kugulitsa katundu wathu wina. Kenako tonse 4 tinakwera njinga yamoto ya Bob, yomwe inali ndi mipando ya m’mbali, n’kupita kukafufuza galimoto. Titaipeza tinapempha wogulitsayo kuti akatisiyire galimotoyo kwa mlongo uja chifukwa tonse sitinkadziwa kuyendetsa. Pofuna kukonzekera kuyendetsa galimotoyo, madzulo a tsiku limenelo Arthur anakhala pabedi n’kumayerekezera kusintha magiya. Kutacha, iye ankafuna kusuntha galimotoyo ndipo mwamwayi panafika mmishonale wina dzina lake Mildred Willett (yemwe anadzakwatiwa ndi M’bale John Barr). Mlongoyu ankadziwa kuyendetsa galimoto ndipo anamuthandiza. Atayeserera kangapo tinaona kuti ntchito yathu itheka basi.

Galimoto ndi kalavani yathu

Kenako tinanyamuka n’kuyamba ntchito yathu ndipo tinafunika kupeza malo ogona. Tinauzidwa kuti ndi bwino kugona m’nyumba osati mukalavani chifukwa anthu akhoza kuiyatsa. Koma mwatsoka nyumba sinapezeke ndipo tsiku limenelo tinagona m’galimoto. Tsiku lotsatira, tinapeza kakalavani kenakake kokhala ndi timabedi tiwiri tosanjikizana ndipo tinkakhala mmenemo.

Tikaimika kalavaniyo tinkangogawira timabukuto m’madera akutali, mwina makilomita 16 mpaka 24 kuchokera pamene taimika kalavaniyo. Ndiyeno tikasamutsira kalavaniyo dera lina, tinkabwerera kukalalikira dera limene tinaimika poyamba lija.

Arthur analibe nthawi yokwanira yokonzekera nkhani zake koma ndinalimbikitsidwa kwambiri poona kuti anali ndi mtima wofunitsitsa kutumikira Yehova ngakhale kuti ankakumana ndi mavuto ena. Tinkasangalala kwambiri ndi ntchito yoyang’anira dera, chifukwa kwa zaka zingapo tinatumikira kudera limene kunalibe mipingo, choncho pa nthawiyi zinali zosangalatsa kukhala ndi abale ndi alongo ambiri.

Panasonkhana anthu okwana 3,948 ndipo anthu 65 anabatizidwa. Pamsonkhanowu panali alendo 3,500 ochokera m’mayiko ena ndipo munthu aliyense amene anapereka malo ogona kwa alendowo analandira kalata yomuthokoza. Komanso eni nyumba anayamikira khalidwe labwino la alendowo. Msonkhano umenewu unasintha zinthu kwambiri m’dziko la Ireland.

Izi zinachitika ngakhale kuti andale analigawa dzikoli kukhala Northern Ireland ndi Irish Republic ndipo achipembedzo nawo amayendera zomwezo. Tinasangalala kuona Akatolika ambiri akukhala a Mboni n’kumatumikira limodzi ndi abale amene poyamba anali achipulotesitanti.

UTUMIKI WATHU UNASINTHA KWAMBIRI

Mu 2011, utumiki wathu unasintha kwambiri. Nthambi ya ku Ireland inaphatikizidwa ndi nthambi ya ku Britain ndipo ife tinauzidwa kuti tipite ku Beteli ya ku London. Izi zinachitika pa nthawi imene ine ndinkadanso nkhawa chifukwa choti Arthur ankadwaladwala. Iye anapezeka ndi matenda a mu ubongo amene ankamulepheretsa kuyendetsa ziwalo zake bwinobwino. Arthur anamwalira pa 20 May 2015 ndipo apa n’kuti titakhala m’banja zaka 66.

Zaka zaposachedwapa ndakhala ndikuvutika maganizo, kuda nkhawa komanso kumva chisoni. Ndimamusowa kwambiri Arthur chifukwa ankandilimbikitsa kwambiri. Koma munthu ukakumana ndi mavuto ngati amenewa m’pamene umayambanso kudalira kwambiri Yehova. Ndimalimbikitsidwanso kuona kuti Arthur ankakondedwanso ndi anthu ena. Ndakhala ndikulandira makalata kuchokera kwa anzathu a ku Ireland, ku Britain ngakhalenso ku United States. Ndimasowa chonena ndikaganizira mmene ndimamvera ndikawerenga makalatawa. Komanso ndimalimbikitsidwa kwambiri ndi mchimwene wake wa Arthur uja ndi mkazi wake Mavis komanso Ruth ndi Judy, omwe ndi ana a mchimwene wanga uja.

Lemba limene lakhala likundilimbikitsa kwambiri ndi la Yesaya 30:18 lomwe limati: “Yehova azidzayembekezera kuti akukomereni mtima ndipo adzanyamuka kuti akuchitireni chifundo, pakuti Yehova ndi Mulungu amene amaweruza mwachilungamo. Odala ndi anthu onse amene amamuyembekezera.” Mtima wanga umakhala m’malo ndikaganizira zoti Yehova akuyembekezera moleza mtima kuti akonze zinthu komanso atipatse utumiki wosangalatsa m’dziko latsopano.

Ndikaganizira zimene zachitika pa moyo wathu, ndimaona kuti Yehova wakhala akutsogolera komanso kudalitsa ntchito yolalikira ku Ireland. Ndimasangalala kuti ndakhala ndi mwayi wothandiza nawo pa ntchito imeneyi. N’zoonadi kuti nthawi zonse timadalitsidwa tikamachita zimene Yehova amatiuza.
