POM - Grace

I came from England for a short term outreach with Bethesda Ministry at OM Zambia. As an assistant at the school, I join devotions and singing, help with feeding and often teach basic math and literacy. Each child needs one-on-one attention, so we’re always a busy team!

I’ve been touched by the healing of children through Bethesda ministry. At the clinic in Lusaka I have seen casts and splints made for children who are learning to walk, and hearing aids fitted for those with hearing loss. Young lives are being changed and strength renewed, something I’ve been humbled to experience.

Working with disabled children can be tough and takes time to adapt to, but I’ve been learning how to communicate better; understanding their unique little personalities more each day.

As a visitor to Zambia I have really felt welcomed. I’ve been blessed to connect with many families and individuals, both at the OM base and in Kabwe. It’ll be sad to say goodbye when my final month is up!
