Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How many children need sponsors? There are more than 176 children in the orphanage.
  2. What does $30 a month cover? Education, food, clothing, and medical. $30 can’t cover everything, but is the amount suggested by Rev. Chanda. Supporters are welcome to give more as they feel led.
  3. Chande Orphanage is set up as a trust – why is this important? The orphanage is registered as a trust with the Zambian government which protects it by Zambian law. No individual can take it over as their own individual property and it protects the church in case a church has a split or has future leaders that do not agree. This way, no one can change its purpose to something else. Being a “trust” gives the right for the organization to not only be recognized by the government, but also is necessary for tax exemption. The Orphanage has a certificate of registration, as well as being incorporated as a non-profit trust and is governed by a Board of Trustees. Rev. Patrick Chanda and Edward Miller are two of the board members. The Millers have known Rev. Chanda since January 1979, their first week in Zambia and fully support this ministry and have complete trust in him.

Alliances Today

Isaiah warned Judah not to ally with Egypt (Isaiah 20:5; 30:1-2; 31:1). He knew that trust in any nation or any military might was futile. Their only hope was to trust in God. Although we don’t consciously put our hope for deliverance in political alliances in quite the same way, we often put our hope in other forces.

Today we continue to make alliances with other disciplines. We hope these will lead to meaning, justice, purpose and perhaps even salvation. Does this seem on target?

Government: We rely on government legislation to protect the moral decisions we want made. We want to stand on what is right, elect people to represent us, but the minority rules in our politically correct society. Our republic is great, but legislation cannot change people’s hearts.

Science: We enjoy the benefits of science and technology. We look to scientific predictions and analysis before we look to the Bible. Science has been raised to the level of deity, omniscient and irrefutable.

Education: We act as though education and degrees can guarantee our future and success without considering what God plans for our future.

Medical care: We regard medicine as the way to prolong life and preserve its quality-quite apart from faith and moral living. Today we see health care as an inalienable right along side of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Financial systems: We place our faith in financial “security” (making as much money as we can for ourselves) forgetting that while being wise with our money, we must trust God for our needs. Jesus had much to say about money, and most of it was warning us about it’s being a trap and a barrier to dependence on God. Paul sums it up in 1 Timothy 6:9-10, 17-19.
