FOUR DAYS OF POWER: A Kitwe evangelistic missions report.

Friends and partners, our first evangelistic, four day campaign, since covid restrictions were eased in Zambia, ended Sunday night.

Over three thousand, recorded salvations were made at the dilapidated, garbage littered Mapili grounds, in Kitwe. The whole crusade site underwent a physical cleansing first as it was a literal dump site despite people using it as a soccer pitch. After the physical cleansing like a maternity ward, it was ready for new births.

After days of fasting, seeing souls saved was my favourite moment. like a mother forgets her pain upon seeing her new born the event took my breath away. We snatched souls from hell fire into the embrace of Jesus Christ. Plundering hell and populating heaven, as late Evangelist Bonnke would say.

This time, our campaign with Evangelist John Deby Edukugho from Nigeria, began 18th November, 2021. I was asked to deputise the committees to add depth, from my past experiences, in mass crusade. I was also honoured to drive the Evangelist in the evening with police escourt. What an experience this was.

The pictures and video clips attached, are a sample of the campaign experiences and celebrations of God in worship, by young and old. Signs and wonders also followed the preaching of the word.In this first campaign after covid restrictions, it was a Holy Spirit visitation. It was a rain shower, the smell of earth after a drought and revival of the dead with healing of the sick everywhere. The demon afflicted felling to the ground convulsing and shaking to free their host. The Mapili grounds venue, in the Ndeke township of Kitwe turned in to a spiritual hospital addressing physical needs as well.

Today, after the crusade a known witch doctor, brough a heavy sack of fetishes asking to be freed of the burden. His mother tried to stop him as they lived off his wizardry but the devil lost the battle. We led him to the Lord, burnt the fetish got him a bible.

Kitwe shall never be the same. Thank you Jesus for the successful campaign. We praise God for the unity among churches and pastors. The cleaning up of that “dump site” in readiness for the campaign was precursor to the cleansing of souls. So many departmental contributions and my car was engaged in “war” for the first time big time. This was the purpose it was bought for. I wish to thank, friends and partners for prayers and contributions.

Thank you.Glory to God!

Solwezi mission report

God gave us a breakthrough in transport this past August, if I may gratefully testify to his glory.
This need was critical, in lean and hard covid times.

Covid, hit our church fellowship badly, like many others across the globe. In our African case, we lost members through deaths, loss of jobs, fear of infection and the devils whispered thoughts like Eve in the garden of Eden. The result of this was, little income for the church and low fellowship turnout.

In all situations, we give thanks to God, like Paul   said, in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. We have been found worthy to be called overcomers so far from 2019 to 2021 pandemic. We met as a church family, as we were permitted by medical authorities our leadership changed.

If I may additionally testify, we were blessed generously in September. The  result was a first travelled to our mission outpost in our village church in a long while.  The church meets in some sorrowful structure with wind beaten plastic and tarpaulin. But their zeal was undiminished. This structure is soon to change.

With our October 2021 visit, our Solwezi fellowship built a kiln for their hand made bricks and are on course to build. Our building is now at roof level in just a few weeks.

We know, many people pray for us as such this update and write up of gratitude. Your prayer and generous support is highly appreciated. 

At the moment, Mbonge Solwezi fellowship just needs a  roof. This stage of construction cannot be done in phases and needs specialised materials. The rain is also closer than before.

Our Solwezi fellowship has shown great commitment and resolve. They are a highly motivated group to do more by themselves.

So far so good, and thank you again for your prayer, encouraging comments forgetting your faithful support to Beth Adonai Fellowship Kitwe and Mbonge, Solwezi.

We want to hear from you soon.

Anniversary/birthday Fundraiser

We are starting a fundraising campaign in honor of Lubuto and his wife. They are celebrating 33 wonderful years together. They have faithfully served the Lord in the ministry. Lubuto also just celebrated his birthday.

All proceed goes to construction of a Bible school and church in Zambia. The target is $6,100 for bible school+$3,300 church building. Total $9,400. 


Yom Kippur, Wednesday 15th ending Thursday 16 September, 2021. (or October in Gregorian calendar).

Yom Kippur means, Day of Atonement. It’s a day to reflect on the past year and ask God’s forgiveness for sins committed.

In the Jewish calendar, it’s the 10th day of the  month of Tishrei. A most sacred date of fasting, among Jews. Fasting is a means of reflection on ones sins and it dates back to Biblical times.

“The purpose of fasting is to bring one to repent.  As such, true repentance brings a change in our behaviours.

During the exodus from Egypt, God by Moses gave Israel two stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments (Exodus 31:18). However, when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, Israelites were worshipping a golden calf and he shattered the holy tablets in anger (Exodus 32:19).

The Israelites atoned for their idolatry and God forgave them on the 10th day of Tishrei, which then became known as Yom Kippur.

The High priest, Aaron, entered into the Holy of Holies bearing the blood of sin offering and sprinkled it on the mercy seat. God met man there (Exodus 29:42).

Today, Jesus the lamb of God, has entered into the Holy of holies with his own blood to atone (Hebrews 9:12).

We can, Rejoice for God through Jesus atoned ( Romans 5:11).

in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:14).

Bloom 1

My amaryllis red, took the lead in blooming this year.
The song ringing in my mind, over amaryllis bloom, was learnt way back in elementary school days, in the ’70s.

Refrain: All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,.
’twas God that made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing color,
He made their tiny wings.

Soon the 40 amaryllis plants of different shades on the ledge white, yellow and the others will follow.

The song quoted, was by Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895). She also wrote “There Is a Green Hill Far Away” and  “Once in Royal David’s City” a popular Christmas carol.

Bloom 2

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who doeth all things well.

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander (1848)

A thought in my heart this morning.

For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of the Sons of Korah. A maskil. A wedding song. My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1-NIV

I love the Amaryllis bloom especially this blood red soon the white, its absolutely gorgeous.

The splendor lasts days and the wonder is reborn in due season.
No matter the circumstances; alone, misunderstood, rejection and even loss, it blooms. In toil, lack of support, through rough times or self inflicted moments, God will cause its flower to bud. A God given beauty, manifested and asking for no returns, at exactly the same time, as he set it out to do.

For us, alone, lack and at times self inflicted sloppiness, I encourage bloom, as he has mandated. The bud never groans, stops to work or labour. Somethings are not for us to react to. We  focus on our mandate, no matter what assails. Life is short,

In the morning it springs up new, but by evening it is dry and withered. Psalm 90:6-NIV

You, are bright and beautiful in bloom even through toil pain and rebirth. There have been moments of great anguish and personal hurt. Yet at that time, someone would be so happy to see me. Oblivious, to my hurt and aches.

He made us to be seen and lips to tell, what the Lord has done. For he does, all things well. Bloom!

Bloom #3

I was about to stop at bloom #2 but someone asked me to send pictures of the bud in a picture, when it blooms. There are still a number of the Amarillies in the ledges yet to bloom. I look forward  to each one blooming.

Lillies have great lessons in them otherwise we would not see them in scripture. Christ is referred to as the lilly of the valley.
Not all flowers, just as amarillies, are mentioned in the bible. not all mammals are named either. There are, however, great lessons in unnamed nature,  which cannot be ignored. Paul to the Romans says, God reveals himself in creation (1:20).

My latest amaryllis blooms, made me set out a bloom parade. However, though Amaryllis  blooms for days, eventually, they succumb just like all God’s creation.

Sadly among us as humans, the past couple of years, we have seen among ourselves, the extremes and contrasts of bloom and doom. People have gone, like they never were.
We try to memorialize them but it just isn’t the same. Scripture has lessons;

Psalms 90:6-7, 9  In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

In admonishing us, Moses asks God to help us account, guide us to utilise or pay attention to the period and time we have each been allotted, on earth.

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12

Song of Solomon 2:12  The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

Eventually as all nature we succumb. I can only encourage that we bloom.

Bloom, exhibit the splendour God has given you.
Bloom, use the best in you for his glory in limited time.
Bloom, exploit the God given gifts for the nect generation’s example.
Bloom, for you only have this time, to bloom

Dearth For the Word

Yesterday, Wednesday, 12th May 2021, as I ended live streaming. A man almost knocked me over in the crowd by  grabbed me, as if by the hem of my garment. “Sir! I want to be saved!”

Every Wednesday at 17:30 (CAT) I apply the bible on a location. It’s on location, to give a practical applicable lesson just like Jesus did. It’s directed to members of the fellowship and public, in this gathering restrained Covid era.
Jesus taught on location; about fishing while they fished, on Galilee (Lule 5). He taught on water at a well, in Sychar (John 4). He taught resurrection, at a tomb and he raised Lazarus from the dead and so on (John 11).

Yesterday even today, I sensed a looming hunger. Worst still, a possible misinterpretation of the hunger and water thirst. This may lead to substituting water for numerous fizzy fluids available on the market now.It’s very easy to go off chassing after things that don’t satisfy.

God said, “… I will send a famine through the land– not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD (Amos 8:11)
Covid has left people as in Joel’s term, Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision ( 3:14).

This indiscision, may be attributed to the absence to familiar, public, well established voices who are no longer heard in campaigns to provide guidance. Billy Graham is gone born November 1918, died February 2018. He was in Kitwe Zambia February 1960. On moral grounds, he initially refused invitation to South Africa due to segregation policy then.

Rhinehart Bonnke is no more born April 1940 died December 2019. Leaving a legacy of spiritual sons and  evangelism methods in Africa like no one in history. He held his outreaches in the world largest tent of 34,000 capacity from the initial 7,000 seater big yellow tent which arrived at Buchi, Kitwe, in 1981 consequently hundreds of thousands and ober a million in one service with signs and miracles following.

Musical legends, Andrea Crouch is gone, 1942-2015. Who has not sang his compositions, Soon and very soon, To God be the glory etc. Keith Green, 1953-1982.  George Beverly Shea, “America’s beloved gospel singer” 1909-2013.  Arguably considered, “the first international singing ‘star’ of the gospel world.” The booming voice that ushered Billy Graham to the crusade pulpit.
These and many others, are no more. Global references, voices with impeccable background.

If such a void takes hold, God forbid, the proverbial drowning man grasps to a straw, can set in.

Luke 11:24 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person [I dare say, even a nation], it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’
v.25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order.
v.26 Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person [nation] is worse than the first.”

Nevertheless, back to my Wednesday experience. After our crudely set up live streaming yesterday, a man run up to me, “I want to be saved… and stop the wickedness I am involved in.”

My thought was, people need and are yearn for the Lord’s direction.  If we had not come, who knows, he would have missed heaven.

I thought, it’s time to passed the bread of truth with the water of life. Spiritually hungry people are searching for guidance from stewards Christ entrusted to distribute.

The toiling fishermen don’t know where to fish after a fruitless night. The thirsty, troubled woman at the well, went for a drink that never satisfies. With shame it was at midday when no one was looking.

The bereaved, family of ” todays Lazarus” need to know the resurrection power in their midst.

…but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).
…and a brother is born for a time of adversity (Proverbs 17:17).
…And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14).

We’ve got to go to “Galilee fishing” spot, children need to know where to cast their nets after a night of fruitless toil.

We got to go to the well at Sychar guide the messed up lonely community reject. We got to visit the moaning “Lazarus” tomb. His siblings have lost sense that resurrections is in the living Jesus.

The Gospel To Solwezi “Nations”

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14.

A testimony to all Solwezi, “nations,” (Nations -ethnos) or ethnic groupings or tribes.

For the gospel of Chris. 25 April Mbonge, Solwezi church service under a tree and sitting on logs to hear the gospel.

Sunday 25th April, my wife and I travelled to North Western, Zambia. A three and half hour trip in a little car. The car, thank God, made it despite frequently scraping the uneven ridged road (believing God for an all terrain, some day). Thankully, it’s dry season now so theres no mud.
Our mission was a pastoral visit on a thriving missionary church plant, more so, to console our Pastors widow, whose husband passed into glory. A great man, physically blind but tremendous visionary.

The ethnic language group, in NW Zambia, is predominantly Kaonde with some Luvale and Lunda. The spiritual atmosphere is there, is miracle ready. I speak none of the languages there. As such,  the Spirit enables communication in these lands more clearly through signs and wonders. For sure, this gospel is to be preached. And certainly, this gospel is designed to reach anyone anywhere.

Pastor Nsofu, praying for his leaders at Mbonge church in Solwezi.

On our visit, a tremendous dance and celebrational welcome puntuated by Kaonde melodius song “mwaiyai” (welcome) meet us. The stage was ready.
After welcome formality, I added a Chichewa song on Moses’ rod and preached on the same to firm the message.

In africa, music, even without instruments is  key in breaking barriers and bridging communication lapses.
There was no PA system, we stood on straw strewn, dirt floor. The pulpit was made of sticks fixed to the ground so I went around it. 
I love the simplicity of the set up, though we can reach more with better facility. The plan is to make this a launch pad for missions to Congo,  Angola and other regions in North Western, Zambia.
We wish to return for a prolonged outreach. Believing God for a harvest  with signs and wonders. For now, it’s to honour the departed man of God.

Pastpr Lubuto Nsofu standing on part of the Mbonge Church, foundation wall corner under construction. 

I was keen to see the foundations laid for their meeting place. A water well and a secured plot.

We will greatly appreciate support and prayers for this church in Mbonge Solwezi. Perhaps, join an outreach there soon?

Your contribution no matter how small is appreciated. We want to send a gift book for any gift over $50.

Tribute to Pastor Record Jioma: A MIGHTY MAN IS FALLEN

Then the king said to his men, “Do you not realize that a commander and a great man has fallen in Israel this day? 2 Samuel 3:38

Today, 27th of March 2021, we put to rest, our Mbonge Solwezi church  Pastor, Record Jioma. A retired former Zambia National Broadcasting Cooperation (ZNBC) broadcaster at Kitwe studios. He was a husband, father and grandfather who was born in 1956 died and March 2021

Though physically blind, he succesfully pastored our Beth Adonai Fellowships, in Solwezi. He was my best, English to Kaonde interpreter who joyously, introduced me to Chief Mbonge as his Bishop. The chief in turn, welcomed us with open arms in his chiefdom, together with Zambia’s Olympic medalist, Samuel Matete and my Elder, Paul Sakuunda. We had lunch together, planned, talked on many topics and his dear wife, paid us a visit in Kitwe. We are still grateful for the gifts she brought us.
In his ministry, despite having no water, he was undeterred in vision. We were delighted to help in sinking the Ella Water Well, at the church plot in Mbonge.  The well, supplies clean water to the local community, the church fellowship and is named after the grandchild of a mission minded couple.

In the quoted scripture, David weeps over, Abner, the senior most soldier who served in Saul’s army (1 Samuel 14:50). His servants did not understand this. His reaction was like, “don’t you get it!!??”
I don’t expect many to understand me either over Pastor Jioma. However, Matthew Poole commentary, may give insight on the illustrious soldier, Abner, who once sat with the King Saul, David and Jonathan (1 Samuel 20:25). I feel a liberty to relate Abner to my Pastor, Jioma;

A great man, both for his illustrious quality, and for his high courage and wise conduct; and especially now for his great usefulness and serviceableness to me in giving me the entire and peaceable possession of all Israel.

Our plans were to develop and growing the Mbonge village fellowship. We planned to build, we provide the roof after they did the bricks and foundations. We wanted to make the place, being on the outskirts of town, a youth friendly camp site. It was also to be a rural mission launching center for  Western Zambia. This was to latet be extended to Angola and Congo.  But this great soldier, was no more. Like David,  I am at loss, to figure this one out.
You had no physical sight but you saw more clearly as you seem to see with the eye of the  spirit. In deed you quipped, ‘I walk by faith not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). Truely, now you see a better place where vision is never lost.
Man of God, we will miss your hard work, visionary, dedication and devotion to the fellowship. We  felt supported, surrounded and guided with you presence. Truly, a great man is fallen at Beth Adonai Fellowship.

May your God, our Lord, give us grace to carry your legacy. May your many children, physical and spiritual pick up your mantel.
We will commit to finish the church building. We will develop, the plot at Mbonge as the lord moves peoples hearts to join us and support this latter day mission.

When we meet in heaven, we will tell of the completed church you started, in Mbonge Solwezi. When anyone is called home, they will surely,  testify. When Jesus gets us all home; members,  friends and partners working on the mission you have left, we will celebrate.

For now, I say, rest in peace man of God. Rest in peace, my soldier Pastor Record Jioma, again rest in peace.

A Reason to Step Into Darkness

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2

My father like many, prayed for a son to carry his name. When I was born he named me Lubuto implying light. He assumed, light had come. Today, I carry the light of the gospel. Whether he saw the gospel part of me, I may never know.

Isaiah spoke these words to his generation. It applied to them but also, foretold the enlightening effects of the good news to future generations, as the word of God endures forever. The good news, cannot be more needed than today, in our modern pepsi light generation (In picture, I had with me a pepsi light, “just in case,” sorry coke). Pepsi light means, lower calories, that’s supposedly, the “good news to fizzy drinkers”

Since our Mpongwe trip, last Saturday,  the poor over burdened, bruised donkeys drawing a crudely made cart, stuck in a cow dug road, has not left my mind.

This year is 2021, supposedly the peak of human modernity. Sadly, it was like the dark ages, with donkey carts stuck in a cattle dung road.

We did help, lest we be numbered among the proverbial first century bible tax collector and religious leaders on the road to Jericho. The gesture, helped to make the gospel we carried, relevant to the locals. Yes, they opened up to us when we seem to meet their need.

At the back of our minds we yearn, to bring light to a forgotten 2021 generation still living in darkness.

For one, a child has been deprived (story, perhaps later a sensitive case). In the picture, stunted boys, catapults slung around the neck, bird hunter I assumed. He had no idea of school.

Here, fear reigns.  A nude wizard or witch falling from the sky in the dead of night is more believable (I am not making this up), than the tongues of fire of the Holy Spirit falling from heaven like a mighty wind.

The solution, is this light of the gospel we carry. This is futile grounds for the illuminating signs and wonders. Just a casting out of vexatious demons puts his agents on the back foot with fear and trembling.

On this narrow bridge, cow walked up to lick my outreached hand with its slimy gray tongue. I guess he said, “shalom!”

For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. Romans 8:19

the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. Romans 8:21

My daughter and son behind me clung to each other apprehensively. One cow  lowered its head towards them. My thought, creation bows to royal authority.

Nearing the far end, the river flowed over the bridge. Unperturbed, two girls with buckets drew water for domestic use in this ankle deep cow dung polluted water. We could go no further. At this point we looked and decided to draw back. Hopefully, with prayer cover and support from friends, we will return even better equipped with an all terrain vehicle.

The gospel light fueled by the anointing of God’s oil, must be lit in our Pepsi generation, royal priesthood. We dare not have dimming light in the temple like Samuel’s mentor, Eli the priest. Eli enjoyed and probably indulged grew heavy obese and lost vision.

In our generation we have more rich pastors, elders than any time in history. Ironically, more of our population live in poverty, are war migrated and lost with vision.

Before we die to our indulgencies. Before the poor migrate to our door steps. Perhaps just perhaps covid, reached us from among the poor at a market? If we acted, could it have been stopped there? Let’s take this gospel to the source of issues, before the worst happens to us where we are.

For now at Mpongwe, a spiritual atmosphere has been assessed, reconnaissance done and its  not for the fait of heart. Will you go or help us to go? We will light up the darkness with the gospel of Christ by taking the battle to the gates of the enemy at all cost.

and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. Genesis 22:17
– pray for children in this area
– pray for gospel ready personnel
– pray for an all-terrain vehicle
