Join a Beauty for Ashes trip to Zambia! (Women Only)
Zambia boasts one of the seven wonders of the world: the rushing heights of Victoria Falls, known as “the smoke that thunders”. It's an entirely landlocked nation, touching eight sister countries and home to seventy-three tribes who speak twenty different languages.
Zambia became an independent nation in 1964 after years of British colonial rule. Since then, the economy has grown, but the Zambian people still suffer from poverty, short life expectancy, malnourishment, lack of clean water, and the AIDS crisis. Christianity is the official religion in Zambia, but the local church needs support for a solid Biblical foundation to raise up the next generation.
The women of Zambia need the encouragement of knowing they are seen and loved by God.
Beauty for Ashes exists to share God's restoration, hope, and healing with suffering and victimized women through ministry and training. Through Beauty for Ashes Retreats, women support and encourage each other by sharing their own stories and experiencing the healing, redeeming power of Jesus.
God is using Beauty for Ashes to ignite a movement of bringing hope to His daughters across the world. This is an opportunity for you to join a team to share God's restoration, hope, and healing with the women of Zambia.
Join us in sharing the hope and power of the Gospel to set women free.
While in Zambia, you will partner JZone. JZone works with various Churches both in urban and rural areas of Southern Province, Zambia, equipping and training the body of Christ.
JZone seeks to share God's love, raise up leaders, and disciple through ministry to children ministry, students, orphans, and in medical missions to remote villages. They also work with widows, supporting ones in need and empowering them with business skills and the word of God.
