Over the past 2 years we were able to record The Living Christ program in 5 languages of Western Zambia (Barotseland).

LANGUAGES: Fwe, Kwamashi, Shanjo, Makoma & Kwangwa (Luyana).

CURRENT STATUS: Chifwe and Kwamashi

In May 2016 Michael and Emese recorded The Living Christ stories in Fwe and KwaMashi.

Beginning of July Michael edited and programmed these.

5 story sets in Fwe and Kwamashi respectively have been placed with the people to do a final field check / pilot distribution. (See photo below.)

CURRENT STATUS: Sikwangwa (Siluyana), Cishanjo and Simakoma

In July 2016 Michael and Megan recorded The Living Christ in Kwangwa, Shanjo and Makoma, as well as the Book of Luke in Cishanjo.

During October 2016 Dalene finished editing and programming The Living Christ programs, while Michael worked through August and October to edit and program the Book of Luke in Cishanjo.

THANKFUL: Good News Media donated 150 sets of Living Christ picture sets to be distributed in the above 5 languages early 2017. Another donor gave enough money to cover the cost of the accompanying players to be loaded with the audio commentaries to the pictures sets.

We are thankful! It has been confirmed that these 150 evangelism sets safely arrived in Mongu, Western Zambia.

PRAYER: Praise the Lord! Now please pray with us that the Lord will continue to prepare the hearts of the listeners, and for effective distribution!

NEED: We already have a request to record the Books of Luke in Chifwe, Simakoma, Kwamashi and Sikwangwa too. To make this happen 1 recordist need to undertake 2 more recording trips, recording 2 languages per trip. This means 1 month of full time recording and a few months afterwards for the editing and processing.

COSTS PER TRIP: R23,000.00
