Keeping up to speed

Despite being without a builder for more than a year now, Flying Mission Zambia continues to grow. Come and see what's happening at this point.

This is the hangar area developing.

And inside....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One and one makes - a couple!

On April Fools Day something momentous happened to Jonny and Sonia - they got married!

And I don't think that was a joke  though it looked a lot of fun!  

There were some serious bits as well:

Here comes the bride!

 

    'Will you love her and care for her...? I will!'

 

Power Day!

Three times each year, we have a Day of Prayer at Flying Mission Zambia. During that time, we take time to pray for happenings at Flying Mission as well as for events in Zambia and around the world. The focus of the most recent Day of Prayer on the 24th of February was the missionaries we serve and their ministries. It was the first DoP that Brighton Lubasi has attended.  Below is his perspective on the event...
 
I expected us to be praying the whole day with no breaks and that we would be fasting the whole time as well!

Where? Never Heard Of It!

When I arrive at the hangar it is dark. Today I need to take off as soon as the sun rises. I have a long day ahead of me. I am flying to Kalungu! says Andy Kradolfer, Operations Manager for Flying Mission Zambia.A couple of weeks ago Flying Mission Zambia was asked to re-open an airstrip all the way up in the north of the country. This place is in the bush, 500 miles as the crow flies (or 620 miles on the road) from the capital city, in rural Zambia.

Partnering with FLYSPEC

Flyspec. You may have read that name on these pages a few times. 

This charity partners with Flying Mission Zambia to accomplish its goal of 'bringing orthopaedic reconstructive surgery to remote areas of Zambia'. And what does that mean in real terms?

It means that 75% of Zambians living in rural areas can have access to specialist surgical services. 60% of those people live on less than £1 per day. Flyspec charges nothing for its services. It is reliant on donations. And that is how this 3 year old child with Blounts Disease came to be succesfully treated.

Introducing the all-new Lubasi team

 

 

 

January 2nd 2016 was a special day for one happy couple. Gabriele Seiler, HR and Admin Manager, and PR to the Director of Flying Mission Zambia, chose that day to marry Brighton Lubasi. And they kindly invited all their friends along to the party.

The value of TEAM

One day at team meeting, Andy Kradolpher, Aviation Manager of Flying Mission Zambia, reminded the team

'You are all part of bringing the truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the message that sets people free.

On the last two days of my recent flight to Malawi,  I realized what a crucial role the aeroplane plays here in Africa to help further the spread of the Good News.

We only have a limited time on this earth, and the plane helps in maximizing the impact in this region.

It was only possible to do that trip because

Children giving

The week after the 'Christmas handout' at the Flying Mission base, Chilongolo, it was the turn of the children to discover the joy of giving. They have no resources for buying anything but they have lots of energy that can be channelled into another kind of giving: serving one another.

We love Christmas!

Christmas 2015 has come and gone and Rainbowz, the childrens' group that meets on the plot of Flying Mission Zambia each Sunday afternoon, has celebrated it once again with enthusiasm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Christmas Story was told this year by Sally Green, back to renew connections with the children of this needy area of suburban Lusaka.
