A word from Alex

Firstly a Big Thank you for all who support our work. We love you and pray for you always.

In order to be effective light bearers of the living God we ought to start thinking differently on some issues.

Instead of emphasizing only on the nearness of the holy place, we should also long for a nearness of relationship with our God. An increased degree of  awareness of His presence in our lives will lead to a moment-by-moment consciousness of His presence.

We can  then realize that we don’t have to shout for God to hear us. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our cherished thoughts. Much closer and abiding than the breath in our nostrils.

Do you want a kiss from the Almighty? Open the Bible.

Have a great day.

The Zambia Messianic Congregations will be coming together this October 24-26th for our annual conference. We hope to accomplish among other things equipping the leadership, reenergizing our mission to the lost and simply glorifying God for all His goodness.
Please do kindly pray with us for a smooth and successful conference.
Missions.
We have six wonderful servants of the living God visiting our ministry this November from Castle Canyon Church in Parker, Colorado. We are excited at what the lord has in store for all of us. Prayer is appreciated.

Orphanage 

Why are we eternally grateful to God and to you for your help in sponsoring the orphans under our care? Of all the 54 countries in Africa, Zambia has the highest prevalence of undernourished people in Africa, a latest United Nations report has revealed. Almost half of the country’s population is undernourished. In the world Zambia ranks second worst after Haiti which has 51.8% of it’s population undernourished.  Africa has 227 million hungry people.

Thank you for providing a meal, clothing and school for our orphans.

The government has brought in three more children at our 24/7 orphanage home in eastern Lusaka bringing the number of occupants to 10. All three are from one family. They have undergone the standard medical examinations and all are healthy and HIV/Aids negative. In Zambia orphans belong to the State and even though we have been given orphans to take care of, the Zambian government does not help us in any way at all in caring and providing for the orphans. Please do join us in praying for sponsors for these children so that they can have adequate food, clothing and school. Sponsorship for orphans at the orphanage is $80 a month.

Letter from one orphan.
Rodgers Lukwembe Gr.5

My name is Rodgers L. I am fifteen years old. Iam in grade 7 at Jerome Fleischer Orphanage School and have been here for four years.

My parents died a long time ago…

Iam HIV positive from birth and I get my medication from the University Teaching Hospital. I have a chance to come to Jerome Fleischer Orphanage School where Iam given food to eat. Iam able to learn and Iam given books, pens, pencils…to help me with school. Thank you for your support as many children are on the streets with no chance for school and no food to eat.

I love you.

Rodgers L.

Graciousness Extended Project

Occasionally we have the opportunity to extend graciousness to children that have special needs and 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.

The Yalenga Family

 A very big thank you to those who support us hence enabling us to be in full time ministry. Thanks also to those who take the time to write to us and to those who  pray for us.  As any missionary will admit being on the frontline can be very messy. However this is our calling and with His help we will continue forging ahead & invading the kingdom of darkness. Blessings to all.
