At the centre of southern Africa is the nation of Zambia. It is not only blessed with natural resources and wildlife but a youthful population of close to 20 million people.
Like other nations in the region, Zambia struggles with extreme poverty and the challenges that come with it. Unemployment and poor education have contributed to high poverty rates, especially among youths.
Yet there is a growing optimism in Zambia. And it is not just because of the improving economic outlook. Many are turning to God as the Church is reaching out to communities with the gospel. Your life will be changed forever as you see the impact of the gospel on local churches. Your faith will grow as you help pastors and Church members share how the gospel has transformed their life. And, your spirit will be invigorated when you join us on a GO Trip to Zambia.
