Working with the amaZioni, we are together becoming mature disciples of Jesus Christ, serving Him as He grows His kingdom in Southern Africa.
ZEMA Board Report – Chairperson, Kathy McIlhany
On behalf of ZEMA and the Board of Directors, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for the prayers and financial support each of you has provided consistently, some of you for many years. Your gifts and prayers make a significant impact on the lives of the missionaries and the amaZioni people as we grow together, becoming mature disciples of Jesus Christ, serving Him as He grows His kingdom in Southern Africa. Your donations and prayers help ZEMA provide Biblical training through ZEBS (Zion Evangelical Bible Schools), Sunday School teacher training, along with ministry to young adults and the community at large through radio ministry and so much more! We are grateful for your support. Please continue to lift up all of the ministries of ZEMA in your prayers. For more information on all that is happening with ZEMA, be sure to regularly visit our website, ZEMA.org! Thank you again for your generosity.
ZEMA Field Director Report – Field Director, Paul Seelhammer
God is working in and through many transitions and open doors. Through the mentorship of Greg Seghers, I continue the transition as the new field director. I am blessed to be a part of the ZEMA family that continually amazes me with their love, dedication, perseverance, and desire to love and serve the amaZioni churches. In 2023 there are widening and new doors opening for ZEMA to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ to bring forth salvation, regeneration, and sanctification, as the Spirit of our LORD brings lasting and eternal transformation. We continually hear a cry for Bible teaching, which are the fresh wind and fresh fire of the Holy Spirit moving in and through the ministry of ZEMA. The harvest we have been waiting for, as in Luke 10:2, is happening today. Revelation 22:20 says, “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus”.

Khulani Nhleko and his wife, Senzile, are currently amaZioni leaders studying at the Union Bible Institute. Khulani, a ZEBS graduate, testifies that though he was active in church, preached regularly, and was the son of the archbishop; he did not know Christ. Studying at ZEBS, “It was then that I became not only the child of the bishop but also a child of God.” ZEBS was the means God used to disciple him.
Kgomotso Emmanuel Moloko (KG)
KG met and was discipled by ZEMA partner missionary Kit Tischler of TEAM while studying at the University of Johannesburg. Following his graduation, KG expressed a desire to further his Bible education to better serve his local Zion congregation. ZEMA and KG’s local congregation sponsored three years of Bible study at Union Bible Institute, from which KG graduated in 2022.
Today, KG leads a weekly Bible study and serves his local amaZioni congregation in Soweto, where he is a youth leader and Sunday school teacher.
