Goats of Joy

Church members in Mpepo, Zambia, show off the goats they received from their brothers and sisters in Christ across the ocean. The Westside Church of Christ in Texarkana, Texas, has supported the church since the early 1990s, when it was established by Zambians who studied Scripture through the World Bible School correspondence program.
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.”
