Zambia is a located in central southern Africa. It was formerly called Northern Rhodesia. Its present size is a little larger than the state of Texas. It gained independence in 1964. David Livingstone, the famous Scottish missionary, traveled through the region in the 1850s.
Since 1991, a professing believer has held the office of president in Zambia. In his inaugural address, he declared Zambia to be a Christian nation and claimed her people for the Lord. The people are open to listening and conversing about the Bible and Jesus Christ in both public and private settings. However, this receptivity is not particularly discerning and reflects a very ecumenical mindset.
Stephen and Ruth Bell entered the field in 1991. There are currently six established churches, along with several outreach and church planting efforts.
Additional church planters are needed to fulfill the ministry goals of BMM in Zambia.
