Goats of Joy
Few of the church’s 24 families had enough to eat. A minister who visited the village recommended that, instead of buying food, Westside members provide funds for goats, which villagers can use for milk and, eventually, income as the goats breed. The church provided funds for the goats and enough food to get the Zambians through the next harvest.
“The members of Mpepo are rejoicing that God has provided them with what they needed to survive,” said Westside member Cherry Lloyd. “Westside was blessed with the joy of giving.”
