About the size of Texas, Zambia is home to over 80 ethnic groups and a place of refuge for Burundians and Rwandans from the 1994 genocide. Copper mining and refining are the mainstays. The country is also largely agricultural.
Despite Zambia’s economic struggles, Christianity is thriving. Believers are rising into positions of power, opening the door for further missions work. Meanwhile, new ministries are being established to address Zambia’s economic and social needs. Still, there is much work to do be done.
