The leader of Ndola Ministers’ Fellowship has bemoaned the plight of many pastor’s wives after the death of their husbands.
Bible Way Ministries Pastor Barney Mulenga called on the Christian community to put
in place mitigation measures for wives of pastors to answer challenges that arise
after the death of their spouse.
Pastor Mulenga said this during the Pastors Fellowship meeting held today at Ndola
Baptist Church Hall.
He said many wives of pastors live in abject poverty after the death of their clergy
spouses because there were no measures put in place to mitigate the negative
economic impact after the loss of their spouse.
Pastor Mulenga said it was important for clergymen to plan in advance for the
economic survival of their families in the event of death.
He added that many spouses of pastors who were now widows needed a start up capital
to engage in income generating ventures for their survival.
Pastor Mulenga said it was important for the ministers’ fellowship to consider
putting up a fund to address the plight of the surviving spouse.
