In recent years, Conrad Mbewe has become well known as a preacher around the world. His clear exposition and powerful application of Scripture has earned him a broad and attentive international audience. But what many do not know is he is also a prolific author in his own country of Zambia. He has written numerous articles and booklets to address the spiritual needs of his nation and it’s churches. This writing ministry, together with his powerful preaching and his experience in church-planting efforts, have made him one of the leaders of African evangelical Christianity. From the wide assortment of his work we have gathered together his more substantial material dealing with the church. This title, Foundations for the Flock, is an effort to take some of his previously published material and make it available to the rest of the world. We are confident it will edify Christians of other nations just as it has done in Zambia. He is the pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church, and he runs a pastoral internship program to help young pastors.
2022 UPDATE TO OUR PARTNERS IN MISSIONS: THE GOSPEL CRUSADE THROUGH TEMPESTUOUS 2021
The year 2021 was harder for KBC and its mission stations at home and abroad than it was in 2020. Kabwata Baptist Church ended up losing two most active members in 2021 due to Covid-19 while a good number of the members were either just infected or affected by it through deaths of close family members. Although there were no deaths reported in our mission stations, there were Covid cases affecting even our missionaries. But God was with us and we saw an increase not just in partner participation but in evangelistic activities also resulting in unprecedented numbers of baptisms. The year was however one of the best years in terms of missions statistics; 2 international mission stations in the City of Kigali in Rwanda were adopted and sponsors were found for both of them. Four mission stations; Choma, Ibex Hill, Chamba Valley and Kapiri Mposhi attained autonomy after having plurality in elderships. We finally had 4 missionary pastors ordained for Eastern Province on 2nd January 2022 having gone through due calling process in 2021. These are Bernard Phiri for Chitawe, Isaac Phiri for Katete, Clement Mwanza for Nyimba and Lewis Chisenga for Sinda.
You, our partners, were with us through thin and thick and your unwavering support cannot be adequately quantified in figures or qualified in words. God alone knows how He will reward your faithfulness in the work you have done.
