The Council of Churches in Zambia joins the world in mourning the loss of nine precious people of God who met their gruesome end by the hand of a gun man who obviously is a deranged man in the United States at an African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina.
The AME Church is a member church of our Council here in Zambia and we feel their pain and their sadness at such a wanton loss.
All the 23 other member churches sent their heartfelt condolences to the immediate families of the deceased and also to the wider family of the worldwide church of the AME Church.
May God help the families to remain strong and not to give up praying, trusting and believing God’s infinite wisdom to see them through this difficult time.
Bishop Dr Alfred Kalembo
