Over the years God’s hand has been working wonders in this ministry through his servant Bishop Lombe Morgan and we are glad to present a series of History in pictures. “If anything has ever worked in this ministry, it is because Gods hand is leading us, nothing will ever work without him“. Bishop Lombe. View the pictures below to see the journey over the years as we return all glory back to God for what He continues to do.
His grace – Bishop Morgan Lombe
Bishop Lombe as a Child.He was born in a family of nine, where they were two boys and seven girls.Today,he is the only surviving man among the boys.

His parents were devoted Christians who made sure he achieved what today, the world can see and benefit from.Mrs Sophia Lombe (Late) passionately prayed daily for the salvation of her son “Lombe Morgan”.Her prayers were really prophetic and came to be answered on the ordination day of Pastor Lombe.What was special about the day is that,when she was told she heart-fully released him into ministry by squeezing his hand as she could not talk as a result of the stroke that lead to her death, a few months later.May her soul rest in eternal peace, her prayer is the reflection of what the world can see today in the Lombe family and the body of Christ at large.

After some years, God started to work wonders in his life and family.He went to school tostudy Veterinary Science and started working in the Ministry of Agriculture in the Government of Republic of Zambia.
Student of Veterinary Science in 1988 at Zambia Institute of Animal Health (ZIAH).
After School, he worked as a Veterinary Officer and everything was well as he desired from childhood . He later married and God blessed him with four wonderful Children.One thing that started to trouble him, was the passion to work for God the rest of his life.
His sisters also pursued other professions and are currently in different places. One of his Sisters, is a Professor in USA.

In this brief background,God has been shaping the Lombe family into Leadership,with the passion to reach out to the lost.
Bishop Lombe started the Ministry in 1999 with a few that have made tremendous influence today.
- ROSE OF SHARON LEADERSHIP AS AT 2000
Nothing slowed down the passion of starting the Ministry,The Rose of Sharon Ministries started its early Church services in the local community hall.The interest was not in fancy auditoriums or desire for temporal resources but rather it was founded on the principle of the word of God of; Winning souls,Discipleship and church planting.
EARLY DAYS CHURCH SERVICE
Only one day, history changed and made a drastic difference in The Rose of Sharon Ministries,the day the ministry acquired and purchased land with title deeds.With God’s favor,a number of individuals,groups and churches extended their hands in seeing “Faith Tabernacle” become a reality.New Life Church in Witbank,South Africa played a pivotal role in building the church.Unrelented support from Rev Martin Visagie (His Pastor) has seen to a lot of progress in the project.Many other people including church leaders and membership have contributed immensely to the success of the project
