Zambia local community

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.

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.

Combating poaching in the wilderness of Zambia

Flying Mission Pilot, Timo Kehr, had an exhilarating experience recently. He describes it like this:

God doesn't only care for his beloved human beings. He is also interested in the animals he created. I had the chance recently to meet people who are fighting the poaching of elephants, rhinos and other wild animals in Zambia. Their goal is to protect the animals by working together with the Wildlife Police and the local village to recreate and maintain space for the animals. (The elephants and rhinos are wanted for their tusks and horns; antelopes are poached for meat.)

Another way of reaching the community

 

'One way we’ve already been able to use the new BIG house we just moved into was to host a huge yard sale in our driveway', writes Michele Royce of Flying Mission Zambia. 'It was raining in the morning so most of the sale was moved into the garage, front porch and under a tree. What we were selling was odds and ends, things that previous missionaries weren’t able to sell or move on before leaving the country. Over the years stuff has just accumulated here at FMZ.

The Big 'Day Out'

We all like a change, don't we? And around the Flying Mission base outside of Lusaka, Zambia, there's not too much opportunity for that for the teens who live there. So our new Community Outreach couple, Michael and Severina Ndhlovu, decided to make it happen for the girls anyway. Here's what's happening at Chilongolo on a monthly basis nowadays.. The Big Day Out!Girls' Day Out

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Children's Ministry moves forward

Something's changed in the children's work on Sunday afternoons at Chilongolo. What's going on?

 

There has always been children's ministry at Chilongolo.  Over 100 children at a time would attend the meetings, children of all ages from babies on backs to older teens. Something drew them every week. It wasn't any sophisticated presentation - we just met under a thatched umbrella in the early days! It wasn't even regular handouts of gifts, although occasionally we were able to give small items to the children.

and the greatest is love...

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.
