This year, BCUC’s Lenten Appeal will support the United Church of Zambia mission site in Chipembi. This is the place that Hazel, Doyle, and Lorrie have visited. It is the home of the Chipembi Girls’ Secondary School, which they partnered with, but also includes a Church, a Medical Centre, an Agricultural College, and a Basic School (grades JK to 7).
All parts of the mission and the people who live there would benefit greatly from a partnership with BCUC - and we will benefit greatly from learning about the people and the life in a part of the world so far removed from our own. One way we will be able to help immediately is to support a summer day camp, “Camp Chipembi”, which is modelled after our own Camp Awesome.
As we journey through this season of Lent, we will share more details and stories about our neighbours in Chipembi. Your generosity is appreciated. Watch the SOSA bulletin board for pictures and information!
