Since March of 2012, Charlie and Mary DiPalma have been serving the Lord with the Church Street church of Christ in Bayswater, Victoria, which is a suburb of Melbourne. In February of 2015, the Australian government approved their request for a permanent work visa, resulting in their being granted Permanent Resident status. The DiPalma’s have also been blessed with the privilege of working with the Central North church of Christ in Perth, usually twice per year for three weeks at a time. Central North is one of many churches in Australia that do not have a full-time preacher. In addition to normal preaching responsibilities, Charlie teaches a Bible class through the Internet on Thursdays with brethren in Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore. Brethren whom the DiPalma’s have known and worked with gather together in the buildings of the Subang and Klang churches of Christ in Kuala Lumpur (KL) and in their homes in KL, Penang, and Singapore to study God’s word together. Mary continues to prepare material for the sisters who teach the children’s Bible classes, teaches classes herself, and helps facilitate a monthly ladies’ Bible study.
Zambia School of Biblical Studies
Zambia School of Biblical Studies continues to train faithful gospel preachers in Southern Africa. Since beginning in Botswana in 1988, nearly 200 students have graduated from the two year preacher training program offered. Warner’s Chapel has been supported this work since the early 1990’s. From this effort there are preachers who are preaching in at least 12 different African nations. Graduates from the Zambia School have established the East Africa School of Biblical Studies, located in Busia, Uganda and the Ghana School of Preaching in West Africa.
Warners Chapel provides partial financial support for Lenford Siakwasiya who lives and works in a rural area known as Ngwezi. Lenford and his wife have seven children.
Warners Chapel continues to help support the work of Brother P. R. Swamy and his son Vernon Douglas in and around Bangalore, India and the southern part of India. Brother Swamy preaches on the radio to thousands of listeners. He and the preachers he has trained convert hundreds of souls each year. He and his son Vernon Douglas works with the “Bangalore Institute of Biblical Studies”, sponsored by Double Springs church of Christ of Cloverdale, AL as well as traveling to other areas of Southern India.
Warners Chapel has supported the work in Nicaragua since 1998 and has been assisting in sending members there each summer during the annual evangelism campaign. In 2011, Warners Chapel began supporting the Tierra Prometida (Promised Land) congregation in Nicaragua. Tierra Prometida is a subdivision of Managua, the capital of Nicaragua. Juan Carranza is the current preacher at Tierra Prometida.
Ryan and Sarah Davis are currently in their third year of work with the iglesia de Cristo Ayllu in Cusco, Peru. Throughout their five-year commitment, both plan to be highly involved in reaching souls in Cusco. Ryan preaches and leads worship on a regular basis, coordinates, writes curriculum for, and teaches in their Logos Bible school, leads the weekly young adult home Bible study group, and disciples young men in the church to be future leaders. Sarah spends much of her day studying the Bible one-on-one with women, teaching womens’ courses in the Logos Bible School, creates and executes the marketing projects for the church, and disciples the young women in the congregation to lead in women’s and children’s ministries. The Ayllu congregation was planted by a team of Freed-Hardeman University graduates in 2010 and has now grown to over 120 members with multiple baptisms happening every month. The vision of the Cusco mission culminates in a specific exit strategy so that well-equipped Peruvian Christians may eventually assume the oversight of the congregation.
