Stories from Zambia

Turning over the table

“I knew before I came to Africa that I would face the issue of poverty cycles, but I didn’t know there would be poverty cycles in ministries as well. I was so emotional about my friend’s situation that I wanted to do something. In Chinese, we call this feeling ‘turning over the table.' Chinese are usually reserved people so turning over the table means that someone could not hold back the emotion any more,” explains Ivy. “They have to do something to express what they are feeling.”

Cleaning for Jesus

“While we are trying to find ways to do the ‘big things’ and win the ‘big people’ for Jesus, let us start small,” said Ivy. “Let us learn from Namman’s young servant. Let us do our daily routine with Christ. Let us cook and clean among those who do not know Him. Then, when the opportunity comes, we will share with boldness about the goodness of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Do you miss home?

“This is the beauty and the tragedy of being a missionary in a foreign land. We are connected to many places deeply but belong to nowhere fully,” shares Ivy. “I will miss home wherever I go and I will create a new home wherever I move. I am adopting cultures and creating a third culture of my own.”

Let us go around the walls again

“When I read the Bible, I sometimes even pretend that I am interviewing the characters. This helps me find new insights in the scripture. Recently I came across the story of the wall of Jericho. As I acted out the scene in my brain, I imagined it in a gaming style,” says Ivy.

Serving where God wants

Even though she didn’t want to go to Africa in the beginning, Abbie believes God prepared her for it and reflects on her experiences.
