The Southern African region is the longest operating of our regions and continues to grow steadily. The region has some great stories of new churches being planted and community upliftment strategies.
In Zambia, a large denomination appointed 14 Live School students to each lead a local church. A small church on the shores of Lake Malawi has established over 30 churches among the Islamic Yao people group, which is one of the largest unreached people groups in Southern Africa. A group of students from Swaziland were sent to plant churches in two unreached people groups that have never had a witness of Jesus Christ in the north of Mozambique. Their initial efforts were met with significant difficulties, such as malaria and cholera. However, huge gains have been made in the last 15 years, and today, there are 42 churches established in the region.
The young national missionaries and soon-to-be leaders do not lack initiative. They are not waiting for finances from the outside. In some instances, they meet under a tree, in homes, or build their newly formed churches out of wood, grass, or bricks they hand-make out of clay.
On another note, we are about to launch the Portuguese translation of the Live School in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. This past January, we trained the facilitators from 23 churches where the Live School in Portuguese will soon start.
The Lord is doing a great work in the Southern African region.
