The New Church Plant in Maloni – UPDATE!

Everything is in place and we are ready to proceed.  But, the previous stumbling blocks are remaining for yet, another month.  The Covid-19 3rd wave, the Zambian presidential election, the volatile exchange rate of the Kwacha against the Dollar and the reality of how slow things can go – sometimes – in Africa remain the culprits.  We DO have the land allotted.  We just need to complete the transactions – as long as something new does not creep into the works.  Please, continue to pray with us for this needed project.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28

Lady from the village of Maloni methodically breaks bigger stones into smaller stones – all day long – to make small piles of gravel to be sold for making cement and paving driveways.

North Conway Baptist Church

NCBC from Conway, SC brought 10 hearty souls who put it in “high gear” for 12 days of ministry, evangelism, Bible teaching, working hard and loving on our Zambian brothers, sisters and children.

A brief visit to the Maloni Rock Quarry where 18 ladies raise their small children while they crush stones all day long to make “ends meet”.


In Mukalahani there is no church…but the NCBC team found the entire village interested in what they had to say…and the people of Mukalahani responded!

The blue lights from the projector illuminates a dozen new converts from Mukalahani.

They really had a full schedule of preachin’, workin’, playin’ and relaxin’…











Ken had to go back to the USA a bit early to handle some personal family matters and to begin working on sponsorships for 2022.

“I’m going back a few weeks early. I have to raise a few bucks to see if I can get Karen some new pants – she seems to have worn these “slap out”!”

We are so thankful for Donna Horton from North Conway Baptist Church, for remaining with Karen while Ken is in the USA.  Both, Karen and Donna will return to the USA in late November after the Indiana Wesleyan University School of Nursing students depart – after a semester of “Study Abroad” in Zambia.

Feel Free to support Donna as she stays behind and works with Karen.
