Story number 1 for 8 Jul 2003

(Zambia)–Zambia tops our news today. The country shares a border with war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola, making it a natural haven from the fierce fighting consuming its neighbors. IN Network’s Rody Rodeheaver explains that’s also the training ground for the Zambian Agricultural Crafts and Theological Studies Institute. “One of the things that we’ve attempted to do is to take our students at the ZACTS Institute and train them to go into this refugee camp, and they hold services in a number of those ‘villages’ that are inside that refugee camp, and are sharing the Gospel and bringing hope.” Rodeheaver says the scale of tragedy is immense, urging believers to act on the needs. “I think this camp has over a million people. They’re being overwhelmed with both the medical problems as well as just the feeding and bringing the food supplies into these people.”
