According to Adventist Church records, Zambia has approximately 1.3 million members. But according to a recent census, more than three million people identified themselves as Adventist!
The need for more churches and schools in Zambia is huge. There are many stories of people walking miles to church, many times in bare feet. Some of the areas needing churches are so remote that a One-Day Church structure is the only solution that could work. Maranatha worked in Zambia in 2013, completing hundreds of projects. In 2018, Maranatha returned to Zambia in response to a request for more churches and schools. Since 2019, Maranatha has also been drilling water wells in rural areas of Zambia where access to clean water is limited or non-existent.
