Prayer Points: Our Return to Zambia

May 10, 2023

Pray with us for our second Medical Outreach to Zambia

We are so excited to return to Zambia for our second Outreach! This time we will be taking our largest group of Outreach volunteers since before COVID-19.

We were in Zambia’s Mumbwa region last October, our first Outreach in a new country in 10 years. We saw a high percentage of Lemba Jewish people coming through the Clinic and prayer room, and we came home with many praise reports. That was just seven months ago, and since then, three new Messianic Jewish congregations have formed!  

We look forward to ministering with and among these wonderful people again. We don’t want to take those recent blessings for granted, so we ask for your full prayer support once again. Here’s how you can help:

  • Pray through the detailed day-by-day Prayer Points below
  • You can also commit to a specific time slot to pray for us from home during the Outreach. SIGN UP on our Prayer Schedule, referring to the dates below.

Let’s Pray

Lord, as familiar as it is for us to reach out to the Lemba people, Zambia is a different nation from Zimbabwe, full of new opportunities and challenges. Thank You for all the ways You helped us navigate them last fall. May this second Outreach be another example of Your desire to reach Your people with the Good News of Yeshua and bring healing and hope to the community, families and individuals You will send to us for Your care. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
