Episode Nine: “Floating Churches” in Zambia

PC Button

In the book of Acts, we read how the Holy Spirit used simple people with simple techniques of spreading the good news of Jesus to the known world. In just a few decades, the early church turned the whole world upside down. Today, missionaries are still using these biblical forms of simple church to make disciples of all nations. In today’s podcast, we will meet a young missionary named Holly Steward. Holly works in Zambia along Lake Tanganyika with Operation Mobilization or OM. She is an administrator for the mission there. Today, She will describe for us a rather unusual method of planting simple churches among the fisherman living along the southern shores of Lake Tanganyika.
