What We Do

Bethany World Ministries, Inc. (BWM) is involved in several different areas:

  1. Evangelism – We have evangelism conferences to teach the nationals how to do evangelism and we also go out in the community on a regular basis to reach those who want to know about Jesus Christ.

  2. Medical Ministry – BWM's President, Sherrie Bumstead (Avery) was able to get her Zambian RN license several years ago. We are currently building a rural clinic in Zambia. We also operate mobile clinics and see patients in the community. We hope and pray to expand this part of the ministry to teach nursing to those who are interested.

  3. Orphanage – God started Home of Hope Orphanage a couple of years ago. Since parents are dying of AIDS plus many fatal auto/pedestrian accidents, orphans continue to increase.

  4. Church Planting – The Baptist Association has asked BWM to assist in planting several churches in the Mkushi area.

  5. Discipleship – Many churches in the Mkushi area exist that have no pastor, and those leading the church have no formal training. We are planning to assist in establishing a “School of Leadership” for those men and women who are leading in ministry.

  6. Women's Ministry-We have been involved in and taught at women's Bible studies and women's conferences.

  7. Children's Ministry-The Lord has allowed us to initiate and teach at several Vacation Bible Schools.
