The Mongu Evangelical Church (MEC) is making a tangible difference in the lives of people in one of Zambia’s poorest parts of country, offering them real opportunities for a better future within the community.

At the core of MEC’s mission is education. They ensure that every child, regardless of their background, has access to quality learning experiences. Whether it’s providing specialized reading classes for children struggling to enter Grade One or offering homework assistance to older students, MEC is committed to unlocking the potential of each individual.

However, education is just one aspect of their efforts. MEC also empowers the community through practical skills training, offering programs in tailoring and computer classes. By equipping individuals with these essential skills, MEC prepares them to thrive in today’s society. Many graduates are now able to sustain themselves through their sewing skills—serving as outstanding examples of the impact of vocational training.

Yet, MEC’s mission goes beyond mere skill-building; it’s about enriching the spirit. Through mentorship and discipleship classes, MEC helps individuals discover their God-given potential and purpose, guiding them towards a brighter tomorrow.

As MEC’s programs continue to expand in Mongu, its overarching message remains: every life is valuable, and every narrative has the potential to be rewritten. With each success story, MEC reaffirms its dedication to creating a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and flourish.

Prayers:

Please pray for the new students who have recently enrolled in the school. We pray that God guides them as they adjust to their new environment.

Please pray for God’s blessings upon the teachers, and staff at the school. May God grant them wisdom and patience to effectively nurture and educate these children. Pray for God’s guidance, especially when tasks become insurmountable.

Praise God for the success of the tailoring class, especially those students who bought sewing machines to continue the craft that they have learned. Bless their efforts, and may they bring prosperity to their families.
