Church grows in Malawi there is an ever increasing demand for Bibles. Apart from those earning a reasonable
living in the towns very few people can ever hope to buy a copy for themselves so Zambesi Mission works
alongside ZEC to put the Scriptures into as many hands as possible. In many parts of the country people
will walk for miles in the hope of getting a Bible!
Over recent years ZM has supplied Bibles to all departments of ZEC and
these have been distributed to young people, ladies meetings, Church elders,
evangelists and Bible study groups. Where possible
efforts are made to start study groups where Bibles are distributed so that
those who can not read benefit from those who can.
You probably have several Bibles in your home - now you can put one in a home
in Malawi! A gift of around £6 would help ZM/ZEC to do just that.
|BOOKSETS FOR PASTORS AND LEADERS
time to time pastors and leaders meet together for Refresher Conferences. As
well as receiving Bible teaching and advice on church matters, they are supplied
with a set of Bible study and devotional
books. Each pack (usually 15-16 books) has a UK value of nearly £100 but
is sent to Malawi for around £25.
Apart from a minimal payment from the pastors, this project is entirely sponsored by churches and
individuals in the UK.

addition to providing books for Bible College students ZM is trying to get as many good study books
into the hands of as many pastors,
evangelists and Church workers as possible. These
are generously subsidised by agencies like Langham Trust/Evangelical Literature
Trust, Sovereign World Trust and Pastors' Training International.
A gift of any size can help to provide a helpful book to someone engaged in Christian work in Malawi.
All of the above projects supply books
in English. Some pastors and leaders, particularly the older ones, cannot
read English or understand it well enough to cope with the topics covered
in the books so there is an urgent need to provide resources in the Chichewa
language which is understood by most people in Malawi. This means getting
permission and having the facilities to translate books or to commission
new ones. Either way, it is a costly and much needed ministry.
