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.
