ZAMBIA MESSIANIC FELLOWSHIP NEWSLETTER.
Failure is to be expected. Not that you strive to fail. God forbid! But some failure is to be expected if you try to accomplish anything worthwhile. Learn to see failure as a stepping-stone to success and never allow it to defeat you. Learn from your failures and you will be one step closer to success.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (Php 3:13)
Josh Reinstein, Israeli Knesset Christian Allies Caucus chairperson addressing the meeting in Lusaka.
The Zambia Messianic fellowship was invited to attend the Africa-Israel initiative an inter-denominational Christian organization which seeks to lobby African politicians to form Pro-Israel caucuses in their respective political assemblies. So far they have a presence in seventeen countries.
We have received five new children at our orphanage. Hallelujah!! A very big thank you to all sponsors who are behind all this.
Barbara 3, Elizabeth7, Ireen 10 and Mapalo 11 are four of our five newest newcomers.
Ireen was abandoned by her parents, Elizabeth was also abandoned. Mapalo was rescued by the government from relatives who raped and abused her. Barbara is an orphan.
The Day School
We have had another great year with yet another stunning pass rate for the children at the day school. Our pass rate for this year was at 92.8%. We thank Our Heavenly Father and all the sponsors who have made this possible. The day school kids were able to pass into 8th grade leaving hundreds of thousands of kids from better schools behind. Among the day school kids you will find those without parents, dirt poor, hungry, abused and abandoned. But Fay and her team using the Bible and education are improving and changing these young souls. Thank you for your prayers.
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 a new 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.
Shalom Zambia radio program is now back on the air and we are already receiving positive feedback.
We will soon be moving our ministry offices from downtown Lusaka to our property.
