The Zambia— Africa base of Teen Missions International
History & Ministries
Teen Missions began running Boot Camps in Zambia in 1994. The first missions trip by a North American team took place in 1996. In 1997, 20 acres of land was acquired near Ndola, where a base and Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center were established. At this time there are 35 Bible School students. There are also 15 AIDS Orphans (AOSC) Rescue Units and three Matron Units. In 2008, Motorcycle Sunday School Mission (MSSM) was also established in Zambia; there currently are two circuits operating 12 bush Sunday schools.

Of the 16 million people, there are over 70 ethnic groups living in Zambia, many of which reside in the western section of the nation.

They also are struggling with the continued spread of AIDS. Over 100,000 people die from AIDS each year. Zambia has the highest level of AIDS Orphans, about 650,000. English, as well as tribal languages, is widely spoken in Zambia. Christianity is growing quickly, causing an awakening like never seen before. The late president of Zambia was a Christian himself. Islam and indigenous religions are also followed.
