FROM ALICK MALUNGA
Mafinga District is a newly established district which is in the north-eastern part of the new Muchinga province in Zambia. Previously it was part of Isoka district. The people of Mafinga were marginalized for lack of development. The district borders with Malawi along the Nyika Plateau and Mafinga Mountains.
The district has few evangelical churches. There are a number of Cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventist, New Apostolic, New Jerusalem and others. There are also so many African traditional churches such as the Chipangano, Nchimi, Zion, Mutumwa, Kasesemma, and Leshina. Many people are misled by these Cults and traditional churches. Because of this, we are glad that Hope Builders Ministries have come to partner with us and help us by training pastors who have the vision of training other pastors and planting Bible believing churches.
We need Bibles in this district in the following languages in order to reach out to indigenous people; 20 Nyika, 20 Tumbuka, 20 Bemba, 20 Lambia, and 20 Gospel recorders. Also we need bicycles to help in traveling to remote areas. As a district leader a motorcycle is required so that I can be able to grow this district.
