 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.

Zambia Messianic Fellowship reaches out to the old people.


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.

Remember to pray for the upcoming court case next month October 10th.

Some witnesses are afraid to come to our aid.


The orphans had a wonderful trip to manzi valley just outside Lusaka. They had an opportunity to learn first hand how mineral water is bottled and the process it has to go through.

You can now help spread the gospel by sponsoring the Yalenga family. Alex & Fay Yalenga are in full time ministry. They oversee the nine Messianic Congregations in Zambia, have a radio outreach to over 2.5 million listeners and conduct outreaches to the Jewish, animists and Muslim populations. Fay oversees the Jerome Fleischer orphanage, which has about  160 children. Alex and Fay have three daughters of their own and have adopted five other children. With only 480,000 formal jobs in Zambia which has a population of 14 Million people the local Zambian congregations (most of them with high unemployment) are struggling to support their leader.

For a tax deductible gift given through Congregational Roeh Israel you can make a difference by sponsoring the Yalenga family with any monthly gift of your choice. For more information write to our USA ministry representative Debra Green
