Rev. Amos Simeba, assistant national superintendent of the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church in Zambia, was involved in a terrible automobile crash on December 13, 2014. He was critically hurt with internal injuries and remains hospitalized. Sadly, his wife and two youngest daughters perished. He was the only one in his car to survive.
The crash was a head-on collision between Rev. Simeba’s SUV and a team bus carrying members of the national soccer team. The driver of the soccer bus was also killed and three players seriously injured.
The accident took place on the highway at the town of Kabwe, in Zambia, on that Sunday morning as the Simeba family were traveling to attend one of the Wesleyan churches in the region.
The Simeba family have older children that were not in the vehicle. Pictured are the two daughters who were killed.
The accident has had national attention because of the considerable impact on the national soccer team. However, the church needs to rally in prayer and support behind Rev. Simeba and the rest of the family and all those who are mourning the deaths in this crash.
May God comfort and heal Rev. Simeba, physically and spiritually.
Rev. Simeba was ordained in 1994 and has been a champion of church multiplication, successfully planting churches across Zambia. His leadership as right hand man under National Superintendent Rev. Alfred Kalembo will be missed until he is able to return.
