Cornerstone University Students Visit Jubilee Centre

Since 2011 Jubilee Centre has been partnering with Cornerstone University where the college sends students and staff to come and serve with us in various areas of our ministry. This year the mission team comprised of 12 people who served with us for 10 days.

In Ndola the team visited a number of programs that Jubilee Centre is supporting in the churches. In Chifubu the IMG_0047team visited the home of Ray Zulu, an associate pastor with Apostles Revivals. Ray is also a Home Based Care Volunteer (HBC) and is in the AWANA children Committee. Ray who is blind and married and has two children runs a poultry rearing business whose profits supports his family. Last year Cornerstone supported Ray with K1, 000 to enable him grow his business.   In Chifubu and Chibuluma they visited two businesses run by HBC that produce high energy protein supplements (HERPS). The supplements are supplied to shops and centres that care for malnourished children and bedridden patients.  A volunteer at New Hope Church, elder Mumanga stated, “Our goal is to save lives of malnourished children and to raise money to support HBC activities in our network churches.”

In their visit to Munkulungwe Village in Ndola rural, they connected with Church of Christ to share the gospel to the unchurched in the village. Later they were separated into three groups and were hosted at various homes of church members were they learned about life in the village and shared a meal with their hosts. They attended two churches and were given opportunity to share testimonies and preach.  At Ubusomboshi and at New Hope Christian Centre Community schools they had fun with the children and taught about oral hygiene and gave out 150 toothbrushes. They also participated in serving over 250 children with meals provided by the two churches.  They conducted a purity conference for the 42 youths in Chibuluma and entrepreneurship trainings for 40 youths in Lusaka. The team donated soccer balls to Ndola Youth Sports Academy in Mapalo and Kakolo Maposa Primary near Kitwe

“The people I have encountered in Zambia are the most joyful and humble people I have ever met. They have helped me understand the power of faith and what it can do to the people that see it. I come home from this trip realizingIMG_0409 the power of faith and humility and the importance of relationships, learning we should  rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, and be constant in prayer,” stated Matt Wisen a business student.

“This team is very practical in what they are teaching.  The entrepreneurship training is an eye opener in being different from competitors and understanding your market,” said Isaac Libando the youth mentor in Lusaka.

Cornerstone University has partnered with Jubilee Centre to provide mosquito nets through Night of Nets initiative which is a global campaign and partnership to help end malaria. Last year they provided 3,200 mosquito nets. Students were able to hear testimonies from people who are now protected from malaria infection because of the nets. At the conclusion of the trip, team leader Kristie Neff stated, “I sense Jubilee Centre is entering a new season in its ministry.” Pastor Temfwe responded, “I know you are prophet and that is why I wanted to hide your passport that you stay here longer that we know what God is saying in this new season through your teaching.”
