The Honey Business
Recently, the honey business which is growing exponentially was featured on the Woodmizer website (here) and a nice YouTube video summarizes the progress well (here). We are currently trying out our new food-grade, ultraviolet resistant plastic hives!
We started a preschool 3 years ago as an extension of the God's Kids ministry here at Kafakumba Training Center. We now have 12 at-risk children in 1st grade and 12 more in preschool! We hope to continue adding a grade each year as long as we are able to help provide these kids with a great education! (See the picture of them on the home page slide show on the merry-go-round).
Kasongo Munza's Book Now Available on Kindle!

The Foundation - Training Pastors into the Future
Pastors' School will be celebrating our 54th anniversary this year. And we have grown from 5 pastors to over 160! With that growth come expenses - at this point about $70,000/year! The Foundation's goal is to form an endowment of $1 million that will fund the pastors solely from the interest and we are more than 1/2 way there! If you're interested in helping, click here.
A Deep Gladness: Stories from the Lives of Ken and Lorraine Enright
"Imagine the terror of being held captive and threatened with execution or surviving the life-threatening injuries of two airplane crashes..." In this book by Gina Riendeau, Lorraine Enright recounts some of the rich stories that characterized her five decades of missionary service with her husband Ken Enright. "A Deep Gladness" is available in bookstores and online at Amazon.com - there's even a Kindle edition! And, in addition, 100% of proceeds from this book go to support the Kafakumba Pastors' School!!!
We are celebrating the results of this last May harvest (we get 2 harvests a year in May and November). Currently there are over 80,000 bee hives around Zambia - franchises that help both the villager and Kafakumba - that produce a LOT of honey! How much honey you ask? About 150 tonnes (1 tonne = 1,000 kg or 2,200 lbs) from this last harvest in May, 2017!!
Help fight stereotypes
The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.
~ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
