Zambia Medical Outreach October 20–30

October 19, 2022

See, I am doing a new thing! — Isaiah 43:19a


We are so excited about our Outreach in the Mumbwa district of Zambia – starting almost as we speak! This is our first time doing a Medical Outreach in a new country in 10 years. Although we have done many Outreaches and established many congregations in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe, Zambia is entirely new to us – from currency to customs. And we do believe the Lord is doing a new thing there.

There are so many critical elements to this Outreach, which is about to begin.

Zambia is considered a nation of born-again Believers, but how many of the Lemba Jewish people there truly know Yeshua (Jesus)as their Messiah and Savior? We can sense the warring in the spirit realm, both because of breaking ground in a new nation and because of the potential for Jewish people and their neighbors to be saved, healed and delivered.

SIGN UP HERE NOW to cover this Outreach in prayer! We have not walked this way before and are so grateful to have you joining us side by side through prayer.

Here are the day-by-day Prayer Points. Please pray for the following:

Wednesday, October 19 – Matthew 24:44a

  • All last-minute preparations to fall quickly and smoothly into place
  • Much favor in the community and from all levels of leadership and governmental authority
  • Special anointing from the Lord throughout the Outreach as we break spiritual ground in a new country

Thursday, October 20 – Galatians 5:22–23

  • Protection over every aspect of the Outreach, including physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual

  • Everything to be done in love

Thursday, October 27 – 2 Peter 3:9

  • Medical personnel to see as many people as possible on this last half-day of the Clinic and for the Lord’s salvation and healing touch to be on all who came for care
  • Safety and ease in taking down and packing up the Clinic
  • Shalom as local workers complete their assignments and receive their pay. Pray also that they may come to know Yeshua for themselves

Friday, October 28 – Matthew 25:23

  • A wonderful and joyous Shabbat as the wonders of all the Lord has done are remembered and praised!
  • Each participant to know that the Lord is well-pleased with their service and delights in them

  • An efficient and effective follow-up to the Clinic by reaching out to all who were interested in knowing more
  • The Lord’s guidance and timing to eventually lead to a healthy indigenous-led Lemba Messianic Jewish congregation

We are so grateful for your prayers. They are reaching the throne room and having an impact across the globe in Zambia, accomplishing more than we can ask or think in Yeshua’s name.

Let’s pray:

Lord, thank You for the many, many born-again Believers in Zambia. But even beyond those who already believe in You, we are so grateful for the opportunity to make You known among the Lemba Jewish community. May they know You as Messiah and Savior and Lord. May their lives and families and communities be radically impacted by the Good News and by medical care and healing in the wonderful name of Yeshua. AMEN.
