What about 9 years ago?

YEAR #2 - 2013

The second year of LIVING WELL's involvement with WCS brought a team of 18 to visit WISDOM Christian School.

When the children hear the bus drive into the neighborhood, they come running to meet the team!


More improvements were made to the building and grounds. A flagpole was raised and the community knew Wisdom Christian School was here to stay.


The team provided another session of CAMP WISDOM (a VBS type program) for the students - including new t-shirts for all! 

New t-shirts are a very big deal. Most of these children in the slum do not get any new clothes. Everything is used - sometimes very used!

Some of the team spent time on discipleship and teacher training with the teachers. Relationships were formed. And lunch was served to all!


The team showed the Jesus Film on an outdoor, t-sided screen, which drew many from the neighborhood. The showing was quite a challenge in a community without electricity! All of the speaking in the film was in their language - Bemba. Many were introduced to Jesus that night!

What happened 10 years ago?

CELEBRATE with us what God has done!! 

Wisdom Christian School was about to shut-down 10 years ago when Ed and Donna Edwards first visited this school in the slum of a slum outside Ndola, Zambia.

The school needed $400/month to keep the doors open. Ed and Donna came home and raised the funds within their Bible study class at Putnam City Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. The school had two classrooms, taught grades 1-4, 140 students, no electricity, and the only water was a hand dug well that was dry part of the year.

That visit began a journey only God could design!

They came back in June with a team of 10 people to do improvements to this one building and to conduct a VBS for the kids.

With them, they brought Bibles to the kids - and hope!

As one of the team members said, "God worked wonders that year. It was one of those times when we all knew God was in control because we were overwhelmed. It was so exciting to experience. To see all that has been accomplished shows He is still in control!"

The building was plastered. The team painted it and put on new doors.

Teaching VBS.
