Joy Mukuka is raising money for Shadow Of Heaven International Ministries
SOHIM Raise The Church Roof Project
Event date: 3rd March 2018
The funds are required to complete the roof for a church that is being built in Mansa, Zambia by Shadow of Heaven International Ministries (SOHIM
- www.sohim.org.uk). The church is located in a relatively poor area, but despite this the community have come together wonderfully to play their part in fund raising activities. Construction began in 2010 and progress has been slow.
In addition to being a place of worship, the building will home to the Centre of Liberty (COL).
The COL is an oasis of hope and empowerment that SOHIM uses to show the love of Jesus Christ in action, giving people hope of a better way of life, regardless of their religious beliefs, race, nationality, age, gender, or martial status.
COL projects for the African Flagship in Zambia include; Food for work scheme, women skills development programme, Enterprise development scheme, clean water and sanitation programme and nutritional centre for malnourished children.
The total roofing cost is £10,000 and to date £5600 has been raised both from this country and locally.
Picture taken at the start of 2017 shows the construction reaching to roof level. So desperate are the people to have a place to worship that they have erected a tent the in middle of the building to facilitate Sunday services.
As you may know I like to keep fit and running forms part of my routine. So my plan is to support this worthy cause by taking part in a series of runs as part of the organised ParkRuns that takes place every Saturday morning at the Forest Recreation grounds. The run is over a distance of 5Km (not quite a marathon!!) and my first sponsored run will be this coming Saturday (weather permitting). You are welcome to come along and support me or even better still why not put on your running kit and join me.
So dear friends please give me your support. Whatever amount you are able to give will be gratefully received. Every penny donated will make a difference. Big thanks in advance and every blessing to you.
