Central Baptist Church, Fisenge

Grace Baptist, Chingola

  Don Howard is the missionary/pastor at Central Baptist Church.  They began about 18 months ago and were recently organized.

  Charles Mambwe is a member of Cen- tral and is always found at church when- ever the doors are opened.  This has been his habit since he was saved.  He desires prayer for his family to be saved too.

  The church's desire is to fulfill both parts of the great commission, going and training, and to plant churches and make leaders out of followers.

NEW CHURCHES ARE NECESSARY FOR THE B.B.F.Z. TO GROW. SO, LET US ASK GOD TO ENLARGE OUR BORDERS (I Chron. 14:10) AS WE WERE CHALLENGED BY JOHN MUKENDI, FROM CONGO D.R.

 

  This church was started in 2000 and is led by Missionary/Pastor Gary Stuart and is growing steadily.  Even though it is a young church, there are some people who have shown commitment in working for God, like John Nkhoma.  He is devoted to God, growing spiritually and loves singing.  He goes for soul winning and says that, "I want to serve God for the rest of my life."

The prayer of the people at Grace is to reach out to as many people as they can and train others who can teach also.

  
Foreign Student Joins B.B.C.
  By Catherine, Nsofwa and Jonathan Matembo Mumene, who is from Congo D.R., is the first foreign student to be en- rolled at B.B.C. He is pleased to be in Zambia as one of the theological students in a college of the same faith and doc- trinal truths. In his life Matembo has al- ways dreamed of being a pastor or mis- sionary. He was encouraged by his fam- ily and friends. Coming here has not been easy, since English was a foreign language to him,but he studied before he came and he knew God would make it possible be- cause He wanted him to learn and be perfected for the work of the gospel. He appreciates the help he has received from students and professors.

"My secret of success is to trust God."

  Matembo finds the students to be help- ful, caring, peaceful, and happy. He said, "The students have a spirit of unity and working together that has made me to be grounded in my Christian life; I am run- ning ahead of my personal goals." When asked his secret of success, he replied, "It is to trust God."
       
 "Cornerstone" Cantata Presented

By J. Shimishi and Evaristo

  The B. B. C. Choir presented a sneak preview of the Cantata, "Cornerstone". The outstanding and inspiring cantata, led by the director, Meshelle Bowles, was perrormed at Faith Baptist Church in Roan 19th  August at 16:00 hours. It was attended by area churches. Also present were Pastor Robinson and two of his deacons, Al Eernisse and  Randy Abell, who were visiting from the  U.S.

 
The audience applauded the choir as they danced and sang their way to the platform.   Some cheered and others praised the Lord, stricken with emotion 

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord . . ."  Psalm 100:1

as they listened to the cantata.  Even the director was touched by the presentation as she unashamedly kicked off her shoes during the performance.

Certainly the students had worked hard for several months on the cantata, so this was quite an achievement for them. They will be presenting the music again on Wednesday of the Graduation Fellow- ship and they hope you will sing praises to the Lord with them.
