2016 June/July Update

2016-8 June July Update to Print

Greetings from Chipata!

Today is Zambian Election Day! There has been alot of talk and many warnings given to us as ExPats to avoid campaign colors, avoid crowds, and be cautious. Please join us as we pray for Zambia!

Big tree hosted a “Movie Night” at the church complete with popcorn! We have a small generator for power, and first showed several “Home videos” we have made of the church events of late. Baptism, children’s presentations, and ladies Bible studies were some of the features! They LOVED watching themselves on The Big Screen! Don’t we all? We then showed “The Jesus Film” in ChiChewa. It was a great turnout as many were invited from all around! Pastor Jere then gave an invitation to respond to the message. What a blessing!

In June, we said Goodbye to Nicole, and Hello to the Wolfe Family from KC, MO! With them, we made the journey to Livingstone, Zambia, and what a beautiful sight! Traveling takes on a whole new meaning here, and we are thankful for the thousands of Km that were driven safely! On the way back to Chipata, we got Micah in Lusaka! We have loved having our youngest son with us again for a while! He has graduated high school and also Welding school. We are very proud of him!

In July, we hosted two men from a supporting church in GA. It was a great time of fellowship, conversation, and brainstorming for the ministry! We have been so blessed with good people coming along side us and visiting the field!

I continue to pray for the Lord to direct the next steps in ministry. There are villages all around that desperately need solid Biblical teaching, and I have open doors to several schools. There is a group of men here in town that are eager to meet regularly for a doctrinal Bible study. Something very exciting as well is I have been extended an OPEN invitation from Chief Mnukwa to regularly teach the headmen of his villages. This is the similar position to a Town Mayor! This is a huge opportunity! Please pray for us to focus on what the Lord would have as the Best use of our time and resources!

Thank you so much for your continued prayers, emails, texts, and interest in the ministry here in Chipata! We remain encouraged and diligent to the task of Reaching Zambia for Christ!
