Mujila Falls Agriculture Center in Zambia, Africa
Mujila Falls Agriculture Center was founded in 1995 by Paul and Roxanne Webster and was dedicated to helping the Lunda-Ndembu tribe move from a hunter-gatherer existence to one of permanent, sustainable, commercial agriculture. Over hunted, their lands could no-longer support their growing numbers. At the same time they needed to have incomes to support their families, buy medicines, and send their children to school. Chief Kanyama, a Christian chief, in 2000 offered the United Methodist Church 1000 hectares of land, including a river and waterfall, if they would send missionaries to teach basic agriculture to the people of his chiefdom.
Red Bird Mission
Red Bird Mission, Inc. and Red Bird Clinic, Inc. have been providing ministries in this region of the Appalachian Mountains since 1921. Today the need remains critical in this isolated, rural distressed area. Chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountainous terrain provide obstacles to a fuller life for the residents of this area. Red Bird Mission and Clinic strives to meet these needs through ministry in five areas: Education, Health and Wellness, Community Outreach, Economic Opportunity, and Community Housing Improvement.
