Holly Moir is a missionary with the ACTION Zambia team. Her main focus is on child evangelism and discipleship and women’s ministries. She recently wrote about her Bible club work.
“My role has been to lead our five Zambian children’s ministry leaders. It is such a blessing to serve in this tangible way! I also help out during the lessons by providing activities, coloring sheets, and verse handouts. I just began teaching lessons myself as well. My current role has been very helpful in learning all aspects of our weekly Bible club.
“We have 73 children registered for class, most of whom come from surrounding neighborhoods. Some of the children who attend our Bible club also attend local churches. Many of these churches teach from the Old Testament, but are lacking when it comes to New Testament instruction. To help with this, our national children’s ministry teacher and facilitator, Uncle Juma, has been teaching two of the older kids’ groups a class which is focused on New Testament stories.
“In September I will be starting a brand-new Bible club for 40 additional children. I am also hoping to start a teen girls’ Bible study with some of the older girls who are currently attending Bible club. This summer we will be visited by a short-term team from Westhills Community Church in Morgan Hill, California. The team will be training our youth leaders on some new curriculum and helping lead a two-day kids’ camp at Camp Ciyanjano. We are planning to have about 60 children in attendance.
“This ministry still has many needs, both spiritual and financial. Many of ACTION Zambia’s missionaries are personally helping to meet our financial needs. One way that anyone can be involved is to pray. I cannot put into words how much of a blessing and encouragement it is to hear that people around the world are praying for our ministry.”
