Changes for the Reddekopps and the Mission

'Love God, Love People and Serve the World'  

is the heart of Guillermo and Mary-Ann Reddekopp, with their three children, Samuel, Lavinia and Joshua.

This family was one who heard God's new call on their lives at the recent Spiritual Life Conference of Flying Mission Zambia. In their words:  'We are all on a journey…

and the greatest is love...

Meeting a legend

Bryan Wilson, Managing Director of Flying Mission Zambia, shares a very significant meeting that he and his wife Diane had recently:

Diane and I are very involved in the Baobab School in Lusaka, which all our children attend. I am Chairman of the Board and Head of the Development committee. 

Upon completion of the new Administration building the Principal asked the 91 year old Kenneth Kaunda (KK), Zambia’s 1st president from 1964-1991, to officially open the building.

'In the groove' at Lake Kariba

Each year a time away from the base is scheduled by Flying Mission Zambia for its personnel. It serves to give the team a time together whilst away from the usual round of duties at Chilongolo, outside of Lusaka, where the mission operates. It's a time to replenish batteries. This year the designated venue was 'Eagles Rest' at Siavonga on Lake Kariba, which is about three hours driving from Lusaka.

 

The invited speaker was Desmond Frey and the topic he spoke on was WALKING OUT YOUR DESTINY which people found very helpful. Consequently some major decisions were confirmed during the conference. 

Giving a 'leg up'

You might recognise these people...

since US born Jeff and Michele Royce have worked with Flying Mission in Botswana in the past and are much valued in the organisation. They have been in the US for a few years but, now with two daughters, they feel that the time is right for them to re-join Flying Mission, this time in Zambia. Jeff is a pilot/ engineer and Michele a people-person! Good mix.

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 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.
