Brother Joseph Nkhoma, the supported preacher for Lundazi, cycled over to help the evangelism efforts in Chitungulu area about 85 miles West of Lundazi. After conducting a successful door to door campaign there with the Church at Chitungulu Church of Christ for three days, he started to cycle back to Lundazi when his front bicycle spoke broke. He had to walk on foot with a broken bicycle for many kilometers going to Lundazi when he met two lions. I understand all he did was to stand still until the two lions decided to walk away. He had to go back until he found a village where he was able to spend the night and find someone to repair the bicycle for him. I thank God that Brother Joseph Nkhoma is alive and well today.
We have been working hard for the last few weeks and results are beginning to show. Currently we have six preachers in Chadiza area on an evangelism mission. They will be in Chadiza area for two weeks. Yesterday, a total of forty-three (43) individuals were baptized into Christ at Chikwa village some twenty Kilometers South East of Chadiza town.
A further twenty-three individuals were baptized into Christ two weeks ago at Tafelansoni area of Chadiza. This brings the number of people that have been baptized between February and March to sixty-Six (66).
Baker Heights does a lot of work in the Eastern Province of Zambia, Africa. We send medical mission teams every few years, but the most important work we do is in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Listen to James Sumners, John Hanson, and Tommy and Shelia Holmes talk about the mission work going on in Zambia.
On behalf of Hills View, Mpezeni Park, and Musekela Churches of Christ, we would like to express our deepest and heartfelt gratitude as the youths in Chipata District for your support.

We truly appreciate your assistance and we hope and pray that the great and powerful God we serve will continue to bless you all.
A new year often brings many changes. With our mission effort in Zambia we have new students coming through Chipata Bible College. Sometimes there are changes in the preachers that are sent out to do the work of the Lord maybe because of growth or the need for a preacher to take of something personal.
This year we hope to be adding some new paid preachers in Mozambique as the work there is growing beyond what the two preachers there can currently handle.
