(Simon and the pastors sharing the plans for the girls' dormitory)
In working with the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) we have a network of churches, pastors and volunteers that were already serving the Serenje communities and people. Mrs Leah Mutala is based in the EFZ headquarters in Lusaka, and has been the Programme coordinator for EFZ for the last 14 years. She works under the EFZ Executive Director Reverend Pakota Munsa.There are 26 churches and pastors affiliated with EFZ in Serenje, their representative in Serenje is Bishop Kasele.
The pastors are a wonderful, servant-hearted bunch of men. Typically most of them lead small churches with congregations of about 50 people. Most of the pastors that we met are not financially supported by their congregations. To earn money, they and their families farm, garden, have market stalls and are very industrious in other "tent making" activities.
This week in the blog I'll be introducing you to some of the Pastors.
