When United Methodist missionary Paul Webster arrived in northwest Zambia in 2000, he immediately became aware that the people of one of the area’s tribes—the Lunda—were exhibiting signs of extreme protein deficiency. Game in the area had been completely hunted out, and there was no predictable food source. The Lunda people had the lowest life expectancy rate and the highest mortality rate in the country. In other words, people were literally starving to death. Around that same time, the local chief of the Lunda people gifted the Zambia Conference 2,500 acres of land—which included a river and a waterfall. So Webster set about propagating high-protein foods, starting with soybeans and eggs. Now, 17 years later, that land is referred to as Mujila Falls Agricultural Center. It’s still run by Webster, and it has created a robust local economy that not only feeds local people but provides them with business opportunities and income. “Every day, I see God at work,” said Webster, one of 17 missionaries supported by churches in the Minnesota Conference (note that he is also supported by the Wisconsin Conference congregations). Webster spent a week in Minnesota in August to visit with and provide updates to some of the congregations that support him. “There’s nothing I could have done without the prayers and support of United Methodists across the country…it’s accomplished miracles.” Read more by Christa Meland.
