My name is Kelvin Ng’andwe and I am a volunteer serving as a member of the board of ChristHospital Ministry Zambia. In my role, I also serve as a teacher and help with mobilisation and evangelism.
I have been a Christian since August 1979. I was appointed a church elder in our local church in Ndola in 1994 and served as a provincial treasurer of the church for 4years and later went on to chair the regional council of elders for another 8 years.
My other privileged and notable achievements include pioneering the first-ever Ndola District ChurchesProjects Fundraising Committee in 2000 and serving as the committee chairperson until 2013. In addition, l served as the chairman of our local church?s constitutional amendment processing 2008.
To date, l serve as the chairman of the first ever Christian Brethren CopperbeltMissions Committee, an organisation l helped to pioneer along with another Christiancolleague back in 2011. After my secondary school education, l went straight into employment and worked in a tea manufacturing company following which l spent 23 years working in a cement factory.
Not one to rest on my laurels, l spent my time there to undergo various training in occupational health and safety, environment logistics, crime and fraud detection. As a result of the various training and valuable experiences, l gained, l established my own company in 2014 called Techno Fire and Safety Solution Consulting Company. The experience and expertise I acquired in this field helped me to assist a friend in setting up a logistics and transporting company in Ndola, Zambia.
I went on to serve until recently as a logistics and operations manager in the company overseeing two of its units. I am happily married to my wife Jane of 28 years and we have blessed with seven children; two boys and five girls. I feel immensely privileged to be a volunteer for CHM Zambia and I am glad that three of my daughters also now serve as volunteers too.
They all help to provide catering at CHMconferences. I believe volunteering for CHM is a great opportunity to fulfill God’s great commission and to this end, I make it a point of duty to mobilise members of my local church to be part of this noble cause. My aim and I believe that of other members of CHM Zambia, is to see the organisation expand exponentially not only in Zambia but also to other neighboring countries in that part of Africa.
