Communities where Christ is least known

Leya

Gospel work is happening amongst the Leya of Zambia, but most remain without Christ. Numbering about 8,200, they are part of the Bantu central-south people cluster. This ethnic community is only found in Zambia. Their primary language is Tonga, and they practice ethnic religion. The Leyas’ identity is deeply rooted in their ethnic religion, and conversion to their faith equates to cultural assimilation.

Please pray that Gospel effort through the power of the Holy Spirit will bear lasting fruit and bring the Leya to put their faith in Christ alone.

Adolescent Girls

Adolescent girls are a high-risk group in Zambia. Before they reach the age of 18, 28 percent of Zambian girls will become pregnant, and 22 percent will already have a child. This number is even higher in the rural areas, where as many as 44 percent of adolescent girls will already have children. The consequences of becoming pregnant as an adolescent include loss of further education, increased risk of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, and increased levels of poverty. Pray for these girls to hear the Gospel of God’s love and begin a relationship with God. Pray that they will understand the high worth they have as God’s children and will make wise life decisions that will enhance their futures.

Prayers

1

Pray for new initiatives in mission and mobilising local churches to send out missionaries from Zambia.

2

Pray for the vision of SIM Zambia as they work with God in his mission to Zambia and the world.

3

Pray for good working relationships between SIM and the organisations with which it partners, including the Evangelical Church of Zambia, so that we can have effective, mutual effort toward building God’s Kingdom in Zambia and beyond.

4

Pray for SIM Zambia leaders as they evaluate how SIM’s work is addressing the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs in Zambia.

5

Pray for God to lead the right people to fill key personnel needs.
