Yahova Akhandithandiza kuti Bzinthu Bzindifambire bwino pa Utumiki Bwangu

Inepano ndidauza mkulu wa acikunda kuti ndikhali kale m’kawoko thangwe ndidalamba kukamenya nkhondo. Ndipo ndidamubvunza kuti: “Imwepo mun’funa kuti bzimwebzi bzindicitikire pomwe basi?” Kucezaku kudacitisa kuti nditambire mcemo waciwiri wakuyenda ku likulu la acikunda ku Estados Unidos.

NDIDABABWA mu 1926 m’mudzi wa Crooksville Ohio ku Estados Unidos. Tikhalipo wana asere ndipo baba na mai akhanamata lini tsono iwo akhambatiuza kuti timbayende ku gereja. Ndikhayenda ku gereja ya Metodista. Pomwe ndikhana magole 14 yakubadwa, m’busa adandipasa mabai-bai thangwe ndiribe kulova mdzinga ne na ubodziyo kwa gole lathunthu.

Margaret Walker (mpfumakazi yaciwiri kucokera kumadzere) ndiye adandithandiza kuti ndidziwe cadidi

Pa nthawe imweyi, Margaret Walker omwe akhakhala pafupi na nyumba yathu akhali m’bodzi wa Mboni za Yahova, adayamba kumbazungira mai wangu acimbacezerana nawo nkhani za m’Bibliya. Nsiku inango ndidakumbuka kukhala nawo pabodzi. Mai wangu akhakumbukuka kuti ndingadadzongesa pfunzirolo, tenepo iwo adandiuza kuti ndicoke panja. Tsono ndidayeza kupitiriza kutetekera maceza yawoyo. Pambuyo pakubwera maulendo mazinji pa muipo, Margaret adandibvunza kuti: “Kodi iwepo umbalidziwa dzina la Mulungu?” Ine ndimutawira kuti: “Munthu ali-wense an’dziwa kuti iye ni Mulungu.” Margaret adandiuza kuti: “Ndoko ukatenge Bibliya lako ndipo ukawone pa Psalymo 83:18.” Ndidacitadi bzimwebzo, ndipo ndidazindikira kuti dzina la Mulungu ni Yahova. Ndidayenda kwa axamwali wangu ndicikawauza kuti: “Mukayenda ku mui usiku buno, mukafungule m’Bibliya pa Psalymo 83: 18 ndipo munkawona dzina la Mulungu.” Imwepo yambani kulewa kuti ine ndayamba kukhala mboni.

Ndidapfunza Bibliya ndipo ndidabatizidwa mu 1941. Mwakusaya kucedwa ndidapasidwa mbali, kuti ndimbacitise pfunziro la bukhu la gwere. Ndidalimbisa mai wangu na abale wangu kuti ndiyende nawo pabodzi, ndipo wensene akhambagumanika pa pfunziro la bukhu lomwe ine ndikhacitisa. Koma baba wangu alibe kufuna.

CITSUTSO PAMUI

Ndidapasidwa udindo buzinji m’gwere, ndipo ndidakonza biblioteka yangu m’nyumba. Nsiku inango, baba adalata mabukhu yangu acilewa kuti: “Iwepo unkubziwona bzensene bzire? Ndikubzifuna lini pa mui pano, ndipo iwepo ucoke nabzo pabodzi.” Ndidacokadi pamuipo ndiciyenda kukakhala mu mzinda wapafupi na Zanesville, Ohio, tsono ndikhambabwerera ku mui kuti ndikalimbise wathu wa pamui pathu.

Baba akhaletsa mai kuyenda ku mitsonkhano. Tsono nthawe zinango pomwe mai akhacoka kuti ayende ku mitsonkhanoko, babawo akhawaletsa acimbawapfuwira m’nyumba. Tsono maiwo akhathawa ndipo akhabula na msuwo munango aciyenda ku mitsonkhano. Ndidauza maiwo kuti: “Lekani thupo. Iwo an’dzaneta kukuletsaniku.” Na kupita kwa nthawe, babawo adanetadi kuwaletsako, ndipo maiwo akhambayenda kumitsonkhano mwakusaya kunesana nawo.

Mu 1943 m’gwere lathu mudayambika Xikola ya Utumiki bwa Mulungu, ndipo inepano ndidayamba kumbafotokoza nkhani za mu xikolayi. Malango yomwe ndidatambira pambuyo pa nkhani yangu ya mu xikolayi, yadandithandiza kuti ndikulise luso langu lakulewa-lewa.

KULAMBA KUMENYA NAWO NKHONDO

Pa nthawe imweyi, mitundu yense ya wanthu idayamba kumenya nkhondo yaciwiri ya pa dziko lense lapansi. Mu 1944, ndidacemeredwa kuti ndikapite basa la ucikunda. Inepano ndidayenda ku likulu la acikunda lakucemeredwa Fort Hayes ku Columbus, Ohio, komwe ndidakapimidwa m’thupi. Ndipo ndidawuzambo akulu-akulu wa acikundawo kuti ndingakhale lini mcikunda. Iwo adandiuza kuti ndiyende ku mui. Nsiku zing’ono-ng’ono patsogolo pace, mkulu wa mphanvu za umangi adabwera pamui pangu acindiuza kuti: “Corwin Robison, inepano ndatumidwa kudzakumanga kuti uyende mkawo.

Ku tribunal pambuyo pa midzinga miwiri, muyeruzi m’bodzi adalewa kuti: Bzingadathemba ine kuti ndicite cakusankhula pa mulandu wako ndigadatonga, kuti ukhale m’kawoko moyo wako wense. Una cakulewa? Koma ine ndidatawira kuti: “Wakulemekezeka, inepano ndingadafunika kuwonedwa ninga m’busa. Ndimbapalizira bzipsa bza bwino bza Umambo kwa wanthu azinji mwa kuyenda ku mui na mui.” Muyeruziyo adauza wanthu womwe akhatonga nayewo kuti: “Imwepo mulibe kubwera pano kuti mudzatonge penu mwamunayu ni m’busa ayai ne. Koma imwepo muli pano kuti mutonge penu ayendesedwe ku nkhondo ayai ne.” Mu nthawe ing’ono-ng’ono, ayeruzi adabwerera na bzomwe akhadatonga pa mulanduyo. Ndipo ndidatongedwa kuti ndikhale m’kawoko kwa magole maxanu ku Ashland, Kentucky.

YAHOVA ADANDIKHOTCERERA M’KAWOKO

Ndidamala midzinga miwiri ndiri m’kawoko ku Columbus, Ohio, ndipo nsiku yakuyamba ndidapitiriza kukhala m’kacipinda kangu. Ndidapemba kwa Yahova kuti: “Lekani kundilekerera kukhala m’kawoko muno magole maxanu. Tsono ndin’dziwa lini comwe ndingacite.”

Mangwana yace, mulindiri adandifungulira mu kacipinda mule. Ndidayenda pomwe pakhana nyamkawoko  m’bodzi mtali wa mapewa makulu, ndipo tikhambanyang’anisa kunja na pajanela. Iye adandibvunza kuti: “Kodi m’fupiwe ndiwe mbani?” Ine ndidamutawira kuti: “Ndine Mboni ya Yahova.” Iye adati: “Iwepo ndiwe Mboni ya Yahova? Tsono thangwe ranyi uli m’kawoko muno? Inepano ndidati: “Mboni za Yahova zimbayenda lini ku nkhondo ndipo zimbapha lini wanthu.” Iye adati: “Iwo adakumanga thangwe un’funa lini kupha wanthu. Koma iwo adamanga alumbwana winango thangwe adapha wanthu. Tsono bzimwebzi bzina msolo?” ndidatawira kuti: “Ne, bziribe na msoloyo.”

Patsogolo pace iye adati: “Kwa magole 15 ndikhali m’kawoko kwinango, ndiko komwe ndidawerenga mabukhu yanu.” Pomwe akhalewa bzimwebzi inepano ndidapemba kuti: “Yahova, ndithandizeni kuti munthuyu akhale kumbali kwangu.” Pa nthawe imweyi, Paulo lomwe likhali dzina lace, adalewa kuti: “Munthu ali-wense muno akafuna kukunesa, ukuwe. Ndipo ine ndin’dzawonana naye.” Bzinthu bzidacinjadi, inepano ndiribe kunesedwa na anzangu 50 wa m’kawoko wale.

Ndikhali m’bodzi mwa mboni zomwe zidamangidwa thangwe ra kusaya kupitira bzandale ku Ashland, Kentucky

Pomwe mkulu wa acikunda adandicinja kuti ndiyende ku Ashland, ndidakagumana abale wakukhwima mwauzimu omwe akhali kale kumweko. Kukhala nawo pabodzi kudathandiza ine pabodzi na winango kupitiriza kukhala wakulimba mwauzimu. Iwo adalinganiza kuti timbawerenge Bibliya m’dzinga uliwense, ndipo tikhambakonzekerambo mibvunzo na mitawiro pa mtsonkhano wa kathimu ka abale. Ndipo kukhadasankhulidwambo mtumiki wa gawo. Tikhambagona m’cipinda cikulu comwe cikhana kama zizinji. Mtumiki wa gawo ule adandiuza kuti: “Robison, iwepo ndiwe uninyang’anira kama ire na ire. Ali-wense omwe anipasidwa kama zimwezi umweyo ali m’gawo lako. Uwonesese kuti wamupalizira, pomwe iye akanati kucoka.” Umu ni momwe tikhapalizirira mu njira yakulinganizika.

BZOMWE NDAGUMANA PAMBUYO PA KUCOKA M’KAWOKO

Nkhondo yaciwiri ya pa dziko lapansi idamala mu 1945, koma ndidapitiriza kukhala m’kawoko. Inepano ndikhana thupo na banja lathu thangwe baba wangu akhadandiuza kuti: “Ndikathamangisa iwepo, winangowa ndin’neseka lini nawo.” Tsono pambuyo pa kucosedwa m’kawoko, ndidadabwa kwene-kwene. Napo akhatsutsidwa na baba, wanthu anomwe wa m’banja lathu wankhambagumanika pa mitsonkhano ndipo mpfumakazi yangu ibodzi idabatidwa.

Mwakusaya kupita nthawe, ndidagumanika pa mtsonkhano wa anyakufuna katumikira ku Beteli pa mtsonkhano wacigawo ku Cincinnati, Ohio. M’bale Milton Henschel adatiuza kuti penu alipo m’bale omwe an’funa kucita bzizinji mu Umambo, gululi lingamuphatise basa pa Beteli. Cakulinga cangu ca utumki bwa pa Beteli cidabvumidwa, ndipo ndidatumizidwa ku Beteli ya Brooklyn mu Agosto 1954. Ndidakhala pa Beteli kutomera nthawe imweyi.

Ndiribe kusaya basa pa Beteli. Kwa magole mazinji, ndidaphata basa la kumbakonza-konza makina. Ndipo ndidaphatambo basa la kumanga Nyumba zakucitira Mitsonkhano ikulu-ikulu mu mzinda wa Nova York.

Tsono atumiki wense wa Yahova kuphatanidza na abale wa pa Beteli ni wanthu wakuperewera. Nthawe zense ndikanyosana na m’bale ndikhacita ciri-cense kuti pakhale na mtendere. Ndikhakumbukira Mateu 5:23, 24 na bzomwe timbadikhirira kucita kuti timalise kusaya kubvesesana. Napo kupepesa n’cinthu lini cakupusa, tsono ndikanyosana na xamwali wangu ndicimuuza kuti pepani ndimbawona kuti mabvuto yambamala.
