About – Zambia Project
Thousands of people living in the Western Province of Zambia have never heard the name of Jesus. Because of this, these people live in desperate circumstances, without hope and in spiritual darkness.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10.
We, the Zambia Project, take the Gospel to where it has not yet been heard in Western Zambia and endeavour to uplift communities through various initiatives.
This province is a vast, sparsely populated, very poor area with little infrastructure. To try and explain the remoteness of the area we work in to our Western ways of thinking, we can use the following fact. There are roughly 1 million people living in Western Zambia and less than 1% have a flushing toilet.
Most communities do not have a continuous source of safe drinking water. Countless children are dying from malnutrition and majority of people have never had access to any form of medical care. The literacy levels in the rural communities are lower than 8%. HIV/Aids, Malaria and TB have left many widows and orphans in vulnerable situations with no food and shelter.
Due to the adverse circumstances and cultural obstacles of working in this area missionary efforts of the past have been restricted. Many faithful missionaries like David Livingstone laid down their lives looking forward to the day when the people living in Zambia’s Western Province would open their hearts to God. Today is that day! Where others have sown with their lives our team now has the opportunity to reap – the harvest is finally ripe! The people are ready to accept the message of hope and redemption. Now is the time to spread out our nets for a great catch. We trust that this website will enable you to partner with us to achieve this awesome task!
