    To Dorothy and Family, My sincerest condolences to the home-going of our dear brother in Christ. I will always remember Dr. Musopole’s hearty laughter, how he made everyone feel special, and especially his love for our Lord and the Word of God. He was a man of integrity and example and I was blessed to know him. My prayers are with the family.

    Dear Dorothy, I was his student in 2010. I still remember his kindness and hospitality. A great teacher and mentor he was to me. I pray that the peace of the Lord comforts you.

    Dear Dorothy,
    I was a child in Malawi from 1980-82 when my parents (Mike and Diana Stuart) taught at Robert Laws Secondary School under the leadership of your husband. As a family, we valued him so much as a dear friend, a brother to my dad and an incredibly kind, brilliant, spiritual leader with a great sense of humor. He is in a lot of my growing up memories. He was a great light and will always be in a special place in our hearts. Much love to you as I know you brought him great happiness.

    Dear Dorothy,

    Augustine was like a brother to me. We were at Robert Laws in Embangweni in the early 80’s. He wrote the request for a History teacher to our church HQ in NYC. When we arrived in Blantyre he and Dr. Nyirongo, M.D. drove down to pick us up. Augustine had me teach all four forms of history then assigned me the first two forms of Bible Knowledge. I said I don’t know the Bible. He said but your a missionary. I said I would do it if he would give me his notes! Augustine led Bible study for the faculty. His teaching incorporated African culture and spirituality into his understanding. I found this interesting and compelling. Also, the poverty of the people in our area and their sharing their Christian faith with what little they had to share. I found hope in the Christian witness which was genuine. So instead of finishing my Ph.D.in History I went to Union Seminary in NYC and served as International Students Adviser. I wrote Augustine about the S.T.M.program for international students who had completed a B.D. Augustine applied and got selected.He went on to get his Ph.D. I worked for the Program Agency’s People in Mission across the street from the seminary. We saw a lot of each other and participated as a leader in Global Village and other mission events for the Presbyterian Church. This included mission interpretation with me a team. We traveled and did dialogue sermons. Augustine was also a leader in the National Council of Churches in Christ orientations for mission personnel. He visited Oregon and met my family. He also came to Louisville, Kentucky and preached in my church. He also visited the new denominational corporate offices. When Augustine took the position chaplain at Colgate University he had me preach in the chapel and asked me to give him the charge at his ordination. We stayed in touch all the years he taught at Tainin. I had spent some time with C.S. Song when he came to New York City. Augustine was my brother in Christ and a mentor to me. I will always hold him close to my heart. He was a saint of the church in the world.

    Peace in Christ,

    Mike Stuart (Rev. HR)

    Dear Dorothy,
    The world has lost a wonderful human being who made a difference in so many peoples lives. Augustine was a mentor and spiritual guide to our family in so many ways that we will never forget.He approached life with such curiosity, joy and kindness. He was always seeking a better understanding of all God’s creation. He always seemed older than my husband Mike and I even though he was actually younger, because of his wisdom, and yet he could experience the full joy and fun of the moment. Augustine, and our time living and teaching in Malawi transformed our lives, and life paths forward. This was a blessing that led to so many other blessings in life. My heart goes out to you Dorothy, as I know you must be missing him so. I know you were the love of his life. I am so glad you were able to have his remains flown back to his dear Misuku Hills Malawi. May God give you comfort and strength now and in the coming days. We give thanks for Augustine’s life well lived, and confidence that he is now in the presence of God’s full light and love.

    I am sorry about the sad news of Dr Musopole’s demise towards the end of December 2021. I first met him at St Andrews Church during an Ecumenical Fellowship; l was recovering from occupational burnout syndrome at the time. I have since opted for voluntary early retirement from the University of Nairobi Kenya. Dr Musopole’s spiritual intervention in my life helped me to stabilize and cope with the mental health issues l was recovering from; he told me many therapeutic stories l still remember vividly. That was in the year 2019; at one time we had a wonderful fellowship at Ufungamano House and eventually; at the Senior Common Room of the University of Nairobi. He was a wonderful servant of God. May God grant Dorothy and family the strength to cope with this great loss. Amen 🙏
