Madalitso a Yehova Andilemeretsa

NDINABADWA mu 1927 m’tauni yaing’ono yotchedwa Wakaw ku Saskatchewan, m’dziko la Canada. Ndinakulira m’banja lalikulu la anyamata 4 ndi atsikana atatu.

M’ma 1930, kunali vuto la zachuma limene linakhudza dziko lonse. Banja lathu linalibe ndalama zambiri koma sitinkasowa chakudya. Tinkaweta nkhuku ndiponso ng’ombe imodzi. Choncho nthawi zonse tinkapeza chakudya monga mazira ndi mkaka. Tonse m’banja lathu tinkagwira ntchito zapakhomo komanso yosamalira ziweto.

Ndimakumbukira zinthu zosangalatsa zambiri zimene zinkachitika ndili mwana. Mwachitsanzo, pa nyengo ina bambo anga ankapita m’tauni tsiku lililonse kukagulitsa zinthu ndipo ankabwera ndi maapozi. Tinkasangalala kwambiri kudya maapozi okoma komanso onunkhira bwino.

BANJA LATHU LINAYAMBA KUPHUNZIRA BAIBULO

Banja lathu linayamba kuphunzira Baibulo ndili ndi zaka 6. Zimene zinachitika n’zakuti mnyamata woyamba kubadwa m’banja lathu dzina lake Johnny anamwalira ali wakhanda. Makolo anga anathedwa nzeru kwambiri n’kufunsa wansembe kuti: “Ndiye kuti Johnny wapita kuti?” Wansembeyo ananena kuti mwanayo anali wosabatizidwa choncho sanapite kumwamba koma akudikira kumalo enaake otchedwa Limbo. Iye ananenanso kuti ngati makolo anga atamupatsa ndalama, akhoza kupempherera Johnny kuti achoke kumalowa n’kupita kumwamba. Kodi inuyo mukanauzidwa zimenezi mukanamva bwanji? Makolo anga anakhumudwa kwambiri moti sanalankhulenso ndi wansembeyo. Koma ankafunabe kudziwa kumene Johnny anapita.

Tsiku lina, mayi anga analandira kabuku kofotokoza zimene zimachitika munthu akamwalira. Kabukuko kanali kofalitsidwa ndi Mboni za Yehova ndipo iwo anachita nako chidwi kwambiri n’kukawerenga konse. Bambo atabwera, anawauza mosangalala kuti: “Ndadziwa tsopano kumene kuli Johnny. Panopa akugona koma tsiku lina adzadzuka.” Madzulo a tsikulo, bambo anawerenganso kabukuko. Mayi ndi bambo analimbikitsidwa kwambiri ataphunzira zoti Baibulo limanena kuti panopa akufa akugona ndipo m’tsogolo adzaukitsidwa.—Mlal. 9:5, 10; Mac. 24:15.

Zimene anaphunzirazi zinatilimbikitsa komanso zinatithandiza kukhala osangalala. Makolowo anayamba kuphunzira Baibulo ndi Mboni za Yehova komanso kupita kukasonkhana mumpingo wa ku Wakaw. Anthu ambiri mumpingowu anali ochokera ku Ukraine. Pasanapite nthawi yaitali, makolo anga anayamba kugwira nawo ntchito yolalikira.

Kenako tinasamukira ku British Columbia ndipo abale ndi alongo a kumeneko anatilandira bwino. Ndimakumbukira kuti banja lathu linkakonda kukonzekera limodzi Phunziro la Nsanja ya Olonda. Tonse tinayamba kukonda kwambiri Yehova komanso mfundo za m’Baibulo. Ndinkaona kuti Yehova akutidalitsa kwambiri ndipo tinkakhala mosangalala.

 Anafe tinkachita manyazi kuuza anthu zimene tinkakhulupirira. Koma ine ndi mng’ono wanga dzina lake Eva tinkakonzekera zimene tinganene polalikira ndipo nthawi zambiri tinkachita chitsanzo pa Msonkhano wa Utumiki. Zimenezi zinatithandiza kwambiri kuti tisiye kuchita manyazi polalikira.

Chinthu china chosangalatsa chimene ndimakumbukira ndi chakuti atumiki a nthawi zonse ankakonda kufikira kunyumba kwathu.

Pa nthawi ya nkhondo yachiwiri ya padziko lonse, anthu ambiri ankachita zinthu zosonyeza kukonda kwambiri dziko lawo. Ndiyeno aphunzitsi ena anachotsa sukulu achemwali anga awiri ndi mchimwene wanga chifukwa chokana kuchitira saluti mbendera. Kenako anauza aphunzitsi anga kuti andichotsenso. Koma aphunzitsi angawo anawayankha kuti: “Malamulo a dziko lino sakakamiza anthu kuchita zinthu zosonyeza kukonda dziko lathu.” Anzawowo anawakakamiza kwambiri kuti andichotse koma iwo anakanitsitsa kwamtuwagalu.

Aphunzitsi ovutawo anauza aphunzitsi anga kuti akawaneneza ngati sandichotsa sukulu. Ndiyeno aphunzitsi angawo anauza mayi anga kuti sankafuna kundichotsa koma sangachitire mwina chifukwa akapanda kutero adzachotsedwa ntchito. Zitatero tinangopeza mabuku osiyanasiyana n’kumaphunzira kunyumba kwathu. Pasanapite nthawi yaitali, tinasamukira kudera lina pa mtunda wa makilomita 32 ndipo tinakalowa sukulu ya kumeneko.
