2024 June Newsletter

E O F Y

The June Newsletter is deliberately early this month – because Front and Centre in the media is E  O  F  Y!

We know that there are many great charities out there, all in need of funding, and while we are not able to offer a tax-deductible certificate, we pray that this EOFY, you will consider giving a boost to the Live Connection coffers, however great or small, either for general admin to help keep the lights on and the wheels turning, or to boost the Bible or Pastors’ General Xmas funds! We always make sure that funds received go to where they have been designated. Thank you for your wonderful support!

FEATURED – PASTOR JUSTINE KUNDA

We have many pastors in need of partnership, but this one really touched my heart

Profile: Pastor Justine was born in 1992. in Ndola. He sadly lost his father in 2005, his mother in 2008, and then his grandmother, who was caring for him, in 2010, making him a lone double orphan. He was unable to continue with his education, so he started farming the land that his father had left him in order to survive.

Testimony: In 2012, I married Lilian and God blessed us with Justina, a baby girl, but in 2016 my wife Lilian died. Two years later, I married Mercy, a widow, who had Luse from her previous marriage, By God’s grace, another child, Izukanji, was born to us in 2019. When Mercy’s sister and her husband also passed away, we agreed to take Monica, one of their children and she is now part of our family.

I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour during a crusade in 2012. I felt loved by God and am now free from the condemnation of my sin and belong to God as a son in His family. My life changed and I realised that even though I suffered in failing to complete my education, God had great plans for me. I consider being part of His chosen people to be the greatest thing in my entire life as He changed my drunken, violent behaviour. I started sharing the gospel with people in my village, some of them got saved and I continued growing spiritually through fellowshipping with other believers, attending Bible studies and prayer meetings. Four years later, I was appointed an elder in the church at Kampumbu and with the help of World Vision, did a Certificate program in Biblical training with the National Christian University for 2 years. In 2021 I planted, and still pastor, Kabonde Armer of Christ church, about 55km from the town centre. My desire is to remain in the house of God, serving Him especially in the area of evangelism and church planting amongst the Tambo and Nyika people where I live.  

Nothing in God’s economy is ever wasted – we are truly blessed to be a blessing! And if you would like to partner with Pastor Justine, please call the office on 0450264772, or email anne@liveconnection.org.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 11Corinthians 1: 3-4 NKJV
