Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! – 2 Corinthians 5:17
Noel Banda famously known as Sling No – Mr. Scatterman who has been in the secular music industry for some time now has decided to move into the Gospel Music industry. This was reported by his spiritual father Lazarous Mankel Chongo popularly known as JIFAN.
Mr. Lazarous had this to say: “I’ve known Noel and his wife Chileshe (who featured in JIFAN Youth Development Part 1 for Central Province and many of my life building projects) for some time, Noel has been known to release good secular music but yesterday he called me to say he had stopped secular music and wanted to serve God through gospel music.”
“When I received this message, I just started praising God. It was a long awaited move, I have been urging him to change to gospel from the time I started praying with him and his wife.
God truly does work when we pray, I have been praying for Noel and Chileshe for 3 years and yesterday God called them back to His mission! Praise God! His wife who has supported him through out his career is just as excited for him as I am which pleases me immensely. My word to their friends and family is to please come together so that we can encourage them and not tempt them to turn away from their call. They need so much encouragement from us as they are in a new direction of or life.”
He went on to say that he was confident that God, who had called them, has good plans and a great future for them.
He was also quoted saying “My plan is to let Noel do a discipleship course with OM missionary college next year, 2017 to help him in his new life. Lets pray for them day and night. God bless Noel and Chileshe.”
