Zurich/Lusaka. The New Apostolic Church is well represented in Zambia: approximately one fifth of all Christians in this gigantic country in Southern Africa profess the New Apostolic faith. Last Sunday Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider ordained two new Apostles for this District Church. The international Church leader celebrated the Sunday divine service in the neighbouring Cape District Church. His sermon in Port Elizabeth on 25 January 2015 was broadcast to numerous congregations of the Cape region by video transmission.
The region of Kasama in Zambia is an Apostle district unto itself and consists of some 38,000 members. The new Apostle George Fwalo (54) will from now on be responsible for this district. In addition to his mother tongue of Bemba, he speaks English as well as the regional African languages of Lozi, Nyanja, and Tumbuka. The Chief Apostle ordained the new Apostle Edwin M. Kazamu (57) for the similarly expansive Apostle district of Mazabuka / Monze. He speaks Tonga and English.
