The COVID-19 pandemic has become a compounding challenge for Zambia, with a population of 18.3 million people. Country director for ADRA Zambia, Kennedy Habasimbi, says street vendors can be spotted selling vegetables and fruits without wearing masks or washing their hands before serving customers. He adds that only 30 percent of the Lusaka population has access to piped and treated water. Despite the local government’s attempt to create awareness, most people believe COVID-19 is not real. Vaccines have been made available, but due to disinformation and conspiracy theories, only 50,000 does out of 18 million were administered.

After years of prayerful planning, more than 330 evangelistic meetings were held across the U.S. states of Texas and Oklahoma. This is one of the largest evangelistic thrusts ever implemented in Texas. These meetings involve people at all levels of the Adventist Church, including local administrators and Adventist World Radio team members and ambassadors.

On September 18, Adventist members from all over the world celebrated World Pathfinder Day. In Pretoria, South Africa, a local Adventist church had another reason to celebrate. After 40 years, the church finally had its first Pathfinder Club. More details of the story coming from the Southern Africa-Indian Ocean Division Communication and Sid Media Director Noel Sibanda.

In Ndjolé, Gabon, forty young people recently responded to an invitation to attend the One Year in Mission program, collaborating with Global Mission for an evangelism program. Each day after campers did their own Bible studies, these young people were sent to visit and give studies to their identified contacts. Each group included a preacher, a coordinator, and an intercessor.
