February 6, 2017 in News

We are very thankful  to the Lord that during 2016 the Chitokoloki plane did 136 flights with over 410 hours of flying time. Chris Brundage was the pilot in all of these flights and they varied from medical flights to other stations, trips to Lusaka for visitors and also flights to Livingstone, Sakeji, and various airstrips within Zambia.

Need for new propeller for plane

October 15, 2015 in News

eng chg5We have just been informed that the request for an extension for the overhaul of the propeller has been declined.  It is therefore necessary for Chris to fly plane right away to South Africa for the required inspection and work needing to be done. Unfortunately some requests for flights will be affected over the next couple f weeks.

This will be the first time that Chris will be flying to South Africa so we pray that all will go well and that the work needing to be done will be completed on time.

October 27th update

The propeller has been overhauled and Chris is ready to fly back tomorrow to Zambia. Thankful that all has gone well and that he will be able to do two of the flights thatw e thought might need to be cancelled.

New Children’s Ward completed

July 6, 2015 in News

We are very pleased to see the completion of the new addition to the Children’s ward and to see it now in full use. Even before the new beds were brought in there were mattresses on the floor which had to be moved to allow for the new beds to be installed.

In addition to the 10 new beds, there is also two semi-private rooms which are also now occupied and will be a great help in providing more beds for patients.

The new addition to the Children’s ward is progressing great with the appreciated help from Paul Dodds and Aaron O’Neil from Brass Tacks. The addition will allow for 10 extra beds in the children’s ward plus expansion of 2 semi-private wards, one which will have a full washroom facility. New beds and side tables have been purchased for this addition and we are hoping that it will be completed in the next 2 months.

Renovated Mission Book Room

March 31, 2015 in News

Bookroom renovated3 Having just completed a full renovation of the Christian Bookroom at Chitokoloki we felt we had to let folks know. The bookroom has been tiled, painted, new cabinets, cupboards and displays and looks fantastic. We have also added a lot of good Christian books and good quality Bibles so people have a very good selection of reading material in English and also the local languages. We have Bibles in six different Zambian languages and also a number of books mainly in Lunda and Luvalle. Bookroom renovated   We would express our thanks to Philip Grainger who built all the new displays.
