Giving Voice to Free Methodist Church - Ndola

Update: This project was just featured in the latest eVoice from Forgotten Voices. You can read that here.
The Free Methodist Church is currently assisting 26 orphans through their schooling and other nutritional needs. The church also has a farming program where members, every farming season, cultivate maize to improve on household food security for most of its vulnerable members. Each family, through help from Forgotten Voices, is given seed and at harvest, three bags are donated to the church for redistribution to the sick and old, then the rest is sold to buy other food stuffs like beans and dry fish for sharing.

The pastor, Rev. Francois Murekezi is a Rwandan refugee whose story of escape from the 1994 genocide into Zambia always reminds me of God's promises to the Israelites in exile. In Jeremiah 46: 27, God promised to save His people in exile. His ministry with the local church in this 'foreign' land has been testimony to how God uses those who avail themselves for His service.

The increasing number of orphans and widows is the reason their program should continue. More and more needy children, especially orphans come to the church door step for help. They will better manage the program with your assistance. As you pray for the local church, remember too, to donate through Forgotten Voices's ministry in Africa.
