1 A.R.M. ZAMBIA. News update...november Water Drilling Agricultural Self-help Skills for the women Sports Development. AFRICA RURAL MISSION. Helping the Rural Poor to help themselves and improve quality of life through the following projects: Drilling Free Water Boreholes... Agricultural training... Skills for women... Sports Development for the youth. * Visiting Team from CCC. It was great to have our first team from Christ Community Church coming to visit us here in Zambia. Although their visit was short, we tried to give them as much exposure to rural mission work as possible. Our desire was that they would return with a passion for people. [1]

2 Drilling of free water boreholes (wells) for the rural poor. This has been a very exciting year for us with the coming of our own water drilling rig from the US. We however had many difficult obstacles to overcome before we could actually start drilling, but we managed to drill four wells so far this year. There are some rig issues that we have to give attention to, to make it work under our rural Africa conditions and we trust that the Lord will give the wisdom needed to get all resolved. I just cannot describe in words what it feels like to be able to drill the wells ourselves... then watching as the ground turns wet and the water bursting out of the well. It brings tears to my eyes. Not to even talk about hearing the rural people scream, yell and seeing them dancing for joy when they see the water. It reminds me of the scripture in Isa. 41:17 when the poor and needy seek water and there is none... I the Lord will hear them... Although it talks about Spiritual thirst, we have seen the rural people respond to that call what joy it is to see them sing and dance around the water well. It reminds me of what Isa. 12:3 talks about...with joy will they draw water from the wells of salvation. WATER DRILLING PROJECTS. With joy will you draw water from the wells of Salvation. [2]

3 Skills development, hygiene and self-help projects for the rural women. The skills projects have been wonderful with women coming to learn how to do things for themselves at their homes. A group of women at the Kafue area have even started their own Bed Spread Business, where they make and sell bed spreads. A lady from the US donated money to buy them two had sewing machines which makes their work so much easier. It proves that there are people in the rural areas that do have the God given talent. If they are trained in how to do, they will be able to help themselves even to start a business like the Kafue women group did. The other groups are also learning to make different things. Wilna says there are some very talented ones among the groups and she is so happy she can teach them what she knows that could help them make nice things for themselves or even clothes. It isn t easy out in the heat, having to bend over to help them going from one to the other, but it gives Wilna great pleasure to see them progress in what they are learning. This project gives opportunity to share the Word of the Lord with these wonderful rural women. SKILLS FOR THE WOMEN. Many rural women are willing to learn. [3]

4 SPORTS DEVELOPMENT AT COMMUNITIES AND RURAL SCHOOLS. There are many sport-talented young people in the rural sticks of Africa. To try and approach younger people with a Bible makes them back off, but sports is a wonderful tool to draw people together. It is wonderful to be able to be involved in helping the rural kids get exposure to different kinds of sport activities. Through these, relationships are established giving opportunity to share and talk to the younger people about the Lord. There is so much hidden or lost sports talent in the rural areas, especially among the girls who Great hidden talent among the rural younger people. hardly get the opportunity to participate. The future of tomorrow is with the young people. Getting them involved in sports, helps them identify much about themselves. It challenges them about learning to loose and how to deal with winning too. In the end it helps them when they face the real winning and loosing issues of life, [4]

5 AGRICULTURAL SELF-HELP PROJECTS. Training rural people how to farm correctly. We need to keep in mind that 70% of the population in Africa live in rural places. If they can learn how to farm properly, then they will be able to feed themselves and not be dependent on the cities for basic supplies! Zambia is blessed with a super climate and rainfall to produce almost anything. By introducing the rural people to the basics of farming, soil conservation and crop rotation systems they learn how important it is to care for the ground and in so doing reap the blessings promised by God. Not everyone is a farmer, but there are many Teach them to farm and they won t need to be fed. that do farm on a small scale to produce for their own household. By learning how to do things right, they discover the blessings of God when they reap bigger crops on smaller pieces of ground. [5]

6 LOOK ON THE FIELDS FOR THEY ARE RIPE AND READY FOR HARVEST. It is not about projects, it is all about people and demonstrating God s love! God demonstrated His love by giving His all in Christ Jesus, to reconcile man with Himself. We read in Acts. 10:38 How God anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and power... how He went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed b the devil... His example of life was a demonstration of God s love to the world. That has not changed. There are many people in the world and out in the rural sticks of Africa who have not heard the TRUTH about Jesus Christ. It is wonderful to be part of His Kingdom plan also in the very rural places where many wonderful people live. Thank You to everyone, for your prayers and support. Your partnership has enabled us to be in Zambia and be part of His workers who are harvesting His big harvest in the in the rural places. All for His Glory and Kingdom! US CONTACT PERSON.
