Some believers with several challenges in their lives come to Mt. Sion for a week long prayer sessions. They are offered accommodation but by the end of the 7th day, many don’t want to go back to their places due to the peace the engulfs their lives after getting miraculous healing by Fr. Magembe Expedito. This is common with mental patients. It always takes a lot of persuasion from Fr. Magembe and his administration at Mt. Sion Prayer Centre for them to leave the place and go back to their homes.

In his teaching, Fr. Magembe encourages hard work. He always advises his flocks not to give chance to laziness. Many believers come to Mt. Sion and find a lot of peace after getting healed. They end up seeking for permanent refuge and many don’t want to go back to their work places. He reminds them that it’s due to hard work and persistence that Mt. Sion has reached where it’s now. “It’s due to hard work my dear brother and sisters that I Fr. Magembe Expedito have been able to reach out to many people”. He emphasizes balance between our daily duties and God’s work as a means of survival.
Most times Father Magembe Expedito emphasizes forgiveness and love. He says that we should make them part of our daily lives. Most people forgive but don’t forget. They always seek for recognition from those they have forgiven. Hate is a big burden to carry in our hearts. We should always free our lives from hatred so as to receive the gifts of the holly Spirit. Fr. Magembe’s teachings are based on biblical teaching of Jesus Christ which emphasis love as the greatest gifts one can have. Very many people fail to get cured because of past grudges on their hearts.
Father Magembe emphasizes that we should always remember those who helped us when in need and we shall receive God’s favors in turn. Many people forget their past. They don’t look back and recall their suffering so as to appreciate where they are. People forget about their guardians and parents. They leave them in poverty and suffering. How will you then receive God’s blessings? This is also in line with tithing as away of thanking God and remembering the good things he has done in your life. Believers, always forget their past suffering after receiving God’s mercy.
He also advises (Fr. Magembe) that we should always help those in need. The surest route to financial break through is helping those in need. Always help those in need. Always give out generously and you will receive the favors of God. Many people often refer the needy as to those without money or material possessions. That’s true but it’s wide than that. The sick, those who have lost their loved ones, are example of needy people. At least every one is a needy at one point in his life. Always identify such people after then you love and help. You could counsel them, comfort and offer financial help, God’s blessings will then pour all over you.
We should always receive the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist and don’t take it for granted. Where ever receives it must be Holy and lead well a Godly life. Many believers take it for granted and have made it a mere habit. You should receive Holy Eucharist in good faith.
