A word for you

Sin equals death

We were blessed to host two powerful teams coming from Colorado and Idaho at the Zambia Messianic Fellowship.

The first team from Colorado was led by Pastor Jack Serr and his wonderful wife Lynnette from Castlewood Canyon Church. The team also consisted of members from Congregational Roeh Israel and Etz Khayim in Colorado.

The team ministered through preaching and dance in different town and village congregations, the team was also on radio,they provided clothing and fed the hungry and ministered to the poor and orphans. The team was a great encouragement to local leaders and especially to the orphans and destitute children at our orphanage and day school.

God touched and hugged many through these faithful men and women.

22 beautiful souls were mikvered (baptized) in Rufunsa east of Lusaka.

Both teams met (at different times) the Queen of the Goba people.

The teams both prayed with the queen and went on a safari in the queen’s land.

 

Zambia & Africa

Hundreds of African Kings, Many Claiming Jewish Ancestry, Will Gather to Praise God at Kotel

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz

The King of Togo, a country in West Africa, has been in the forefront in trying to bring hundreds of African kings to the Western Wall in Jerusalem this Sukkot (Festival of Booths) to sing out their love of the God of Israel. King Ayi was crowned in 1994 as King of the Ayigbe people of the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, and Benin. The seat of this Kingdom was in Togo, although most historians confirm it started in Accra, Ghana. In 2002, at the second World Conference of the Counsel of Chiefs and Kings of Africa, King Ayi was crowned by his peers as head of the Organization of Kings and Queens of Africa, in the republic of Benin.

At the following conference in 2005, he announced his desire to bring all 350 African kings to Israel, to recite the ‘Shema’, the Jewish declaration of faith, at the Kotel (the Western Wall in Jerusalem). His announcement was received with overwhelming enthusiasm.

The ceremony will take place in Jerusalem during Sukkot in October and has been organized in conjunction with the Israeli Religious Affairs Ministry, headed by MK David Azulai.

Note: There is a growing love and appreciation for Israel in Africa which saw prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu visit Africa recently.

 

Boko Haram

The new Boko Haram leader has vowed to kill all Christians  in Nigeria and Africa. Also targeted are Christian charities. The new Boko Haram leader blamed the West for spreading Christianity to the African region and also said that charities are assisting them in doing that. He has sworn to bomb churches and eradicate Christians. 

Zambia

Zambia went to the polls on August 11 to elect a new president and the incumbent Mr. Edger Lungu was declared winner. The opposition has since petitioned the election results and as per Zambian constitution the Speaker of the national Assembly assumes the presidency until the constitutional courts give their judgment.

Please do pray for peace in Zambia we have witnessed violence that we have never seen before as a country.

 

The Day School

The day school is in serious need of help and prayer. We have about 180 children in the day school and about

107 children are in need of sponsorship ($25 a month) please do prayerfully consider sponsoring a child and passing the word around. We are however extremely grateful to those who are sponsoring children at the moment. You are God sent!!

IMG_5172

Orphanage.

All the children in the orphanage are sponsored and doing well. We still have room for some more. Sponsoring a child at the orphanage costs $80 a month.

Graciousness Extended Project

Occasionally we have the opportunity to extend graciousness to children that have special needs or have graduated from our day school but have no support. Some of the children who have graduated from the 7th grade no longer are given a meal or assistance to go on further with their education.  We have developed this program to help care for these children who do not fall under our school and feeding program. If you were sponsoring a child who has since graduated and you would like to continue sponsoring the same child this is for you.

The School has an enviable academic track record of a 90% pass rate. 
 If you feel led to make a difference kindly contact our USA representative Maria at 719-487-9061 or zmforphanage@gmail.com

All donations are tax deductible. One time donations are also welcome.

  • The School has 191 children

  • The ministry also supports 4 disabled children who live with their families
  • We also support 22 children who have graduated from our school
  • Total kids=234

Thank you for being a blessing!!

 

A word for you

We need to keep in mind the difference between natural sight and supernatural vision. When we look at life with vision, we perceive events and circumstances with God’s thoughts. And because His thoughts are higher and more profound than mere horizontal thinking, they have a way of softening the blows of calamity and giving us hope through tragedy and loss. It also enables us to handle times of prosperity and popularity with wisdom.

Have a blessed day

Alex Yalenga

Congregations.

slide

The Congregational offices have moved from downtown Lusaka to our location along Shantumbu Road.

We were privileged to participate in the annual Israel independence parade in Lusaka organized by the Jerusalem house of Prayer.

We also participated in the Israel-Africa initiative which featured the speaker of the Zambian National Assembly, Dr. P. Matibini.

The Israeli ambassador Mr. Gershom Kedar invited us to attend a special Israel independence celebration for Zambian Jewry.

The Chinkuli congregation has been undergoing some persecution from the local tribal leader and others who have been demanding among other things unfettered access to the congregational water well.

Check out our new website at www.zamf.org

Children at our day school

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The day school is in serious need of help and prayer. Every year seventh graders graduate and we enroll a new group of first graders who are orphans and poor children.

Most of the seventh graders are sponsored and when they leave some sponsors discontinue their sponsorship, which creates a huge financial gap.

We have 107 children in need of sponsorship ($25 a month) and please do prayerfully consider sponsoring a child and passing the word around. We are however extremely grateful to those who are sponsoring children at the moment. You are God sent!!

We have eight members of staff at the day school and 6 members at the orphanage.

  UPCOMING VISITS

  • Castlewood Canyon Church will be bringing a team in early July 2016. Their last visit was a great blessing with over 100 new salvations.
  • Congregational 268 are also coming in mid July 2016 and as usual everyone is excited. They have touched many lives for God in Zambia including praying and ministering to royal tribal leaders. Hallelujah!!

 

The Yalenga Family

IMG_5547

Golden Yalenga

The Yalenga family lost their 83 year old patriarch Golden Yalenga to a stroke. Golden was the father to Chika, Chuma, Sikota, Njahi, Alex, Mwangala, Maanga and Kabuba.

Golden lived for others and with his vast medical experience he labored among the poor of the poorest. He loved his God, Israel and spent a lot of time studying the Bible.

Will be greatly missed by all.

 Pray For Zambia

The new Zambian government  has nationalized some businesses including the Railway System of Zambia which was being run by Israelis. The government canclled the work permits of the Israeli managers and when they tried to leave the country arrested them. We are in shock!!! Last time Zambia took over businesses owned by Israelis and others the economy collapsed.

There has been instances of police brutality against those with an opposing view. For championing the cause of the poor a catholic priest was deported by the government. Please do pray for the Israelis who have  unjustly been arrested.

A word from Alex

As we enter the Jewish New year on Sept 16th in the evening. We at  the Zambia Messianic Fellowhip pray that  the year ahead be filled with G-d’s richest blessings and may you and your loved ones be sealed and inscribed in the Book of Life for a year of goodness, health and fulfillment.

We wish you all a blessed and peaceful Rosh Hashanah and a meaningful fast.

May the seeds we sow bear abundant fruit and let our prayers for peace in
Israel, and the world all over, become a reality.

less than 3% of Zambians are over 65 years of age. The few old people are neglected and live in abject poverty.Besides taking care of 162 orphans God enabled us to donate used clothes, shoes and other items to an old peoples home in Matero township. Many old people have been neglected, are sick and without adequate clothing.
