Mike & Queen Monze are fulltime national missionaries at a remote Orphan Rescue unit outpost in the Lufwanyama District in the Copperbelt Province, in northwestern Zambia. They are also graduates of Teen Missions in Zambia BIBLE MISSIONARY & WORK Training Center located in Ndola. Mike and Queen received an emergency case in the middle of the night. It was a lady in labor with the baby’s hand presenting. There was nothing Queen or Mike could do but pray. They made a “bed” out of a folding chair and tied it to a bike and sent her on it with 70,000 kwatcha (about 15 dollars) of their own money, up to Saint Mary’s clinic (a journey of several hours on foot). These men who had already walked a long distance with this patient to Mike’s walked another long way to the clinic pushing her on the bike. Queen labored in prayer all the rest of the night for the safety of the baby and the mother, praying for them not to die. St Mary’s does not provide transport, but they made an exception and took her with their vehicle to Kitwe hospital. This all took many many hours with the woman in labor like that. The hospital did a C section. Meanwhile, during church, still praying and praying in the church service that God would help them, they got word that the baby and the mother both survived and were doing fine. Lives are being saved all of the time by the God of the BMW graduates. They are in the right place at the right time very often. They are dearly loved by the people that they serve. To God be all the Glory!
