Jonas and Sarah Schmid have been happily married for eighteen years. Since September 2020, they have been assigned by Church of God World Missions as project coordinators and administrators of Leopard’s Hill Lodge – Retreat & Conference Centre in Lusaka, Zambia.

Leopard’s Hill Lodge welcomes guests from all over the world as well as participants of the Master Program, D.Min. study program, Africa Council Meetings, church retreats, and marriage and youth seminars.

Our daily tasks include bookkeeping, staff management, restaurant management, and maintenance work on the buildings.  However, our main focus is to care for our guests. All net income and tithe are donated to areas that serve ministries of the church and communities, such as Bible schools, children’s ministries, and  community projects.

Already in our early youth we felt the call into ministry.  We are happy to serve the people and thus the body of Christ with the present ministry in Lusaka, Zambia with the gifts God has given to us.

Since we gave up our secular work as child educators and engineers in the Summer of 2020 and relocated to Zambia, we can only marvel at God’s guidance and help. We are grateful to see how God uses the Leopard’s Hill facility to enhance His kingdom on the African continent.
