Justin & Preetika Warner
WARNER MINISTRY HISTORY
We arrived in Zambia in 2006. At first, Preetika and I worked with some other missionaries. I would travel regularly to some village areas and was able to be a part of planting 2 churches in those “bush” areas. Preetika and I were also privileged to be able to work with the youth of a Baptist church in our town.
During that time, as part of our work with the youth, we began a Bible study in another part of town. The youth were the ones who led the singing, went soul-winning and visiting, interpreted for the preaching and taught the children’s classes. Our Bible study met on Sunday afternoon under a big tree. As the people in that area began to become faithful and grow spiritually, they approached us about organizing them into a church. By this time we had moved from meeting under the tree to an abandoned building in the area. The building had two walls and half a roof, but it provided shelter from wind, rain, and sun. We officially opened Fallsview Bible Baptist Church in June 2008 with 10 people getting baptized in the river above the Victoria Falls. Fortunately, it was dry season and the river was not flowing as swiftly as usual.
Shortly after that we moved our church again and met in a local preschool. We continued meeting there for a couple of years until we were able to purchase a plot of land and build the foundation. Then we put up a small circus tent that we had been given and are finally now meeting on the permanent home of our church.
In May 2013, we began a Bible Institute with 5 men enrolled. We are looking forward to what the Lord will do through the lives of people trained in this Institute.
Please pray with us as we look to the LORD to continue building the people of His church here in Livingstone. Also be in prayer for our ongoing building project as we endeavor to complete our facilities to be used as a tool in reaching more for Christ!
