Sunset's Africa Ministry strives to engage the believing community of Sunset Church to Pray Unceasingly, Give Generously and Go Boldly.
1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 commands Christians to “pray unceasingly... for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” We ask supporters to do just that for the poorest of the poor in Zimba. Read about how you can pray for Zimba in Zambia, the village Sunset Church is supporting through its partnership with Hands at Work.
PRAYER REQUEST FROM ZAMBIA
Please join us in praying for the communities here Hands at Work serves in Zambia, including Zimba. Here's an update from Hands at Work:
Thank you for your prayers for Zambia during the recent outbreak of cholera. We are pleased to report that after a 2-week hiatus of regular activities in the Zambian communities where Hands at Work serves, as a result of the government restrictions on public gatherings, the cholera situation appears to be contained. Care Points like Kachema Musuma (the Good Shepherd) in Zimba have resumed their food programs and schools for the most vulnerable children. Care workers and children are following guidelines on basic cleanliness at hand-washing stations, and those who cook the meals have been screened and issued certificates to show they are all healthy and able to feed our kids once again! We serve a faithful God, and we deeply appreciate how our church community came together in prayer about this.
Quarterly Updates from Hands at Work
2 Corinthians 9:7 instructs us to “...give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” If you are able to sacrifice and do good by sharing what God has blessed you with in support of the 150 children in Zimba, Zambia that we support, please do that by going to the Hands at Work donation page and select “Zimba” as the purpose.
James 1:27 explains that “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction…” You can watch and listen to stories from our 2017 team who decided to go boldly on our Vimeo channel. Also, Sunset’s Africa Ministry is discussing plans to take a team in 2018 to Zambia to encourage the care workers, children and widows through an intentional living out of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
