It takes your breath away

Judith, who comes from The Netherlands, works in Zambia at present. When her parents came to visit her, they arranged a trip with Flying Mission Zambia to visit Lower Zambezi National Park, hoping to see some of God's amazing handiwork.

So what do missionaries do all day?

Have you ever wondered what a missionary's day might look like? Of course, every one is different, but to show her supporters what they are investing in, Sally Lott (Flying Mission Zambia Member Care) described one day she had recently. We invite you to journey with her in Zambia's capital and suburbs.

Fleet change options

The Flying Mission Zambia fleet of aircraft dates from the late 1970's to early 1980's. We feel the aging of our planes in the increased maintenance needed on them. In the last couple of years, we have been looking for solutions to replace this fleet. Andy Kradolpher, Operations Manager, was in Austria in February of this year to test fly a new design.











Multi-tasking for the greater good


Recently, Andy Kradolpher’s helicopter maintenance experience came in handy when, on a normal Flying Mission Zambia passenger flight, the pilot/mechanic was able to help fix a former FMZ Board member’s helicopter.

Cinema opens again in Makeni

Mishek, one of the young men discipled by Flying Mission Zambia missionaries, continues to report on his projectionist activities, telling of further decisons for Jesus from the children who came to see the second part of the Gospel story. The sacrifice of Jesus melted the hearts of some of those watching the film, along with hearing God speaking in their own language.

Meeting needs in rural Zambia

Elissa and Darren Tompkins have served as Medical missionaries at Mukinge Hospital in NW Zambia for 8 years. Darren is the Medical Director. Elissa home schools their 5 children.

Elissa and the children stayed at the Flying Mission Zambia Guest House in Lusaka for some days recently, in order to do shopping and other chores. (Darren had to stay at Mukinge to provide medical cover at the Hospital). Elissa brought their 4X4 in for repairs and she was able to borrow an FMZ car.

The indefatigable love of God

There is a young man in Makeni whose heart burns for Jesus and his community. His name is Mishek.

Ever since Flying Mission Zambia began to operate its base outside of Lusaka, there has been a bond with the local community. It has manifested in different forms -Women's Handwork and Bible group [Tiyanjane], Lads' soccer, children's Sunday meeting [Rainbowz], Girls' Day Out project, Lads Bible Study, as well as other intermittent events. You can read about their evolution since 2004 on the website here.

A bit of member care

And after the fire came a gentle whisper

How often are you reflecting on your everyday life? Do you take time in the evenings to calm down? To calm your thoughts and reflect on what happened today or what the next day might bring? I don't mean to worry about things, but to reflect on them in a Godly way, a meaningful and helpful way.

Nina's done it again


Our creative Nina has been at work in the hangar. She explains: 

I had the privilege of thinking about some creative ways to express the work we are doing here in Zambia and how we contribute to seeing Zambia being transformed.
