Wow! We’ve just had feedback from our Impact Teams and the number of Life Groups now meeting across rural Zambia and Namibia is 314. That’s an estimated 6,280 people learning more about loving God and loving their neighbour. Amazing! There will be many stories of redemption and hope emerging over the coming year.
