Mission To Zambia
Zambia, in southern Africa, is a landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife. On its border with Zimbabwe is famed Victoria Falls – indigenously called Mosi-oa-Tunya, or "Smoke that Thunders" – plunging a misty 108m into narrow Batoka Gorge.
Zambia has a tropical climate and consists mostly of high plateaus with some hills and mountains, dissected by river valleys. At 752,614 km2 (290,586 sq mi) it is the 39th-largest country in the world. It is neighbour to Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia and Angola. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest.
Zambia has been a Christian nation since 1996 and has full religious freedom. With only 0.4% of its population unreached by the gospel, 83% are professing Christians.
Copper mining and refining has long been a source of foreign exchange. Post-independence prosperity was squandered by heavy-handed socialism, neglect of agriculture and widespread corruption. About 68% of Zambians live below the recognized national poverty line, with rural poverty rates standing at about 78% and urban rates of 53%. Unemployment and underemployment in urban areas are serious problems. Most rural Zambians are subsistence farmers.
Zambia is a presidential representative democratic republic, whereby the President is both head of state and head of government. The government exercises executive power, while legislative power is vested in both the government and parliament.
Our mission in Zambia
We work on the building of a rescue centre for young girls living on the streets and from abusive situations where many are exposed to HIV/AIDS, drugs and substance abuse. These harsh living conditions forced girls to resort to prostitution, an extremely dangerous lifestyle in a city where 20% of the population is HIV positive and the opportunity to go to school is rare. Over 80% of children living on the streets have no access to formal education. We are working towards getting these young people off the streets and living a good life away from the drugs, prostitution, violence etc... The stories of the street children are horrendous as many are dying each week due to aids.
Volunteers accompany home-based care workers to visit local people in their homes. This is an opportunity to do Outreach and share the gospel in the community, where we minister to their practical and spiritual needs.
One of our volunteers, Christina Farr, also supports the work of Christian Alliance for Children in Zambia (CACZ) who run the 'House of Moses'. This is a home for abandoned babies. The home can house 25 babies up to the age of 18 months. They receive round-the-clock care from dedicated staff. Many of these babies are abandoned or left at the gates of House of Moses by desperate relatives.
We need your support to make this vital lifeline work. Why not give of your financial support today towards this work and be an encouragement and facilitation to those who have sacrificed their lives to go and serve these Children. We urgently need £13000.00 please give towards this need. God will bless and prosper you.
Mission to Zambia and India
Christina Farr heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." Isaiah 6:8.
A committed Christian, married with 3 beautiful children responds to Gods call to serve the poor in Africa... a journey and adventure with God! Christina makes her fourth trip to Zambia from January 13th as a volunteer with Mission Direct and based in Chamba Valley in Lusaka. She will be participating in the official hand over for the New Rescue Centre, which was the main 2015 building project. When she left at the end of October 2015 works were still in progress but the time has come for the opening. Christina is very excited to be able to participate in the grand opening and hand over of the new building and to celebrate with the girls at Vision of Hope as they move into their new home. God has done great things through this work and ministry and I feel very privileged to be a part of it in helping the orphans and widows. We will need to continue serving VOH by supporting their needs through further facilitation and individual sponsorships for young girls living on the streets and from abusive situations where many are exposed to HIV/AIDS, drugs and substance abuse. These harsh living conditions forced girls to resort to prostitution, an extremely dangerous lifestyle in a city where 20% of the population is HIV positive and the opportunity to go to school rare. Over 80% of children living on the streets have no access to formal education.
Christina will accompany home-based care workers to visit local people in their homes, an opportunity to do Outreach and share the gospel in the community, where she will be ministering to their practical and spiritual needs. The gospel must be preached as there are many lives that need Jesus!
She also works along the Christian Alliance for Children in Zambia (CACZ) who runs the 'House of Moses', a home for 25 babies up to 18 months who receive round-the-clock care from dedicated staff. Where babies are abandoned or left at the gates of House of Moses by desperate relatives.
Her vision and desire is to continue to help the poor and to share Gods amazing love to these precious souls. Her heart is to see the sick healed and thousands give their lives to Christ!!
Please support Christina and this mission by your prayers and giving, that her life and her arm out stretched over lives will be a representation of our arms, helping to meet the needs.
Let us come together and give of our finance. Please give generously that we may facilitate this work in this lifetime of opportunity.
"As one person we can make only a small impact but together we can become a mighty river, reaching a lost and needy world with the love of God."
