Orphans, Widows, Water Wells, Education, Garden Projects, and more...
The Dignity Project is HBM's focus on saturating entire communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by helping local churches, through Pastors and Disciple-Makers to minister to the most vulnerable people in their community – Widows and Orphans, the broken and discarded.
As the local church develops under the leadership of trained pastors the whole church is empowered to minister to the entire community. Social welfare become Gospel Projects as the Church of Jesus Christ is seen empowered by the Gospel to change lives from the inside out. Sustainable Gardens and community water wells become a blessing from a local church of believers growing in Christ. The Church loving one another and loving their neighbors cries out that "we are disciples of Jesus Christ!"
Hope Builders Ministries Dignity Projects are designed to help Churches become independent of outside help while depending on God and their own hard work. Christians growing in maturity by the Word bless those around them as they display the love of Christ in their communities.
HBM will help the local church by providing the initial seeds and tools needed to help widows to cultivate a viable vegetable garden while helping to care for orphans assigned to them by the Pastor.
The testimony of Mama Rolinga warms our hearts and we want to share it with our supporters: “I was scratching in trash heaps to try and find food after my husband died. As a widow with no one to help me I had to beg or scrounge for everything. The pastor of our church asked me to look after four street children after he told me that the church was going to give some widows a chance to work in a garden to grow food for them and the children. Now after eight months of growing food and bartering for some things we need the children are doing well and I have my dignity as good member of society back."
10 years ago Simon Mulenga obeyed the call to Isoka and started training pastors, planted a church and started a ministry to the many vulnerable children. Today he and his wife Sharon and 5 children continue to serve the Lord and the community with the Gospel of Christ.
In the northeastern part of the Musenga Province is Isoka located on the African Great North Road. Here Pastor Simon and his family operate a small pre-school and a widows/orphan program. Partnered with HBMZ children are being educated, fed and clothed. A farm project is providing some of the food and revenue. You can help.
Mpulungu is located in the extreme northern part of Zambia and is a port city on Lake Tanganyika. There are many many orphans and widows in this area that is also home to many Muslims. Pastor Daniel Phiri oversees the HBMZ Dignity Project here.
The Living Water of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is essential for eternal life. For life on planet earth water is essential. Many remote, rural churches and their communities can not afford to have deep wells drilled to clean water sources. Instead they depend on shallow sources of water that are polluted by animal and human waste.
Many have to walk long distances to crocodile infested streams and rivers.
HBM comes alongside the local church in their communities and sponsors the drilling of deep clean water wells. The local church contracts with a local driller so that the project is locally owned and the local church blesses the community where they represent the Lord Jesus Christ.
