Stories from Zambia

Afraid of missing out

"Since my childhood, I have been anxious about missing out. I remember not wanting to sleep whenever I heard the adults chatting in the night. I wanted to be part of it all. Later on, in high school, I said “yes” to every event and outing, which ended up crashing so many times. I couldn’t choose. I wanted to be there to celebrate all the fun moments but also share all the tears in the low moments," says Ivy.

"However, this lifestyle of being afraid of missing out could not continue when I joined missions. I have had to learn how to let go when I miss out on opportunities to create precious memories with family and friends in my home country."

Dong! Dong! Dong!

“Dong! Dong! Dong! That is the sound I imagine of how the boy jumping around during kid’s ministry in the photo grew into a big strong man,” says Ivy. “…You never know what is happening in the lives you are touching right now, but God finds people to carry on all parts of His work. No missionary can claim to have done all the work themselves and everyone should rejoice together with the great work of God at the end.”

Crocodile Island

Realising the need for biblical role models, OM partnered with a local church to send a couple, Kelvin and Florence, to Crocodile Island as missionaries.

請不要放棄我

在Kapembwa村,常常有人要求宣教士趕鬼釋放禱告,但阿凡想要更深的改變。

文化眼鏡

「我們其實都戴有文化眼鏡。」OM同工Ivy說,「而身為唯一的東方人,當我的同工們透過紅色或綠色眼鏡注視著世界,我試著向大家解釋黃色鏡片的世界。」

神要我去,我就去
