Zarmisha Ministry hopes to target and work through local churches and organizations to build up and develop new churches and/or organizations that will preach the gospel and provide basic human needs. The organizations that are targeted will be given financial support and training to help in these endeavors. In the process, the hope is also to improve on or build new local infrastructure to improve people’s lives. Examples will include church buildings, water wells and generators. The hope of Zarmisha Ministry is to help these local churches and organizations work together cooperatively to eventually support themselves and others in this mission. In the future, these churches will plant other churches and support missionaries to preach the gospel in other parts of their country. During this process Zarmisha Ministry plans to counsel, train and advise these local churches and organizations in attaining the above mentioned goals including fiscal responsibility and tracking. The desire is for each local church to be a leader in their respective communities and bring glory to God.
Our Name and Logo
Our name is composed from the three Hebrew names Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah from Daniel 1:6. These three are better known as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Zarmisha was named after these three because of their great faith in front of King Nebuchadnezzar in refusing to bow down to his large statue. They refused to listen to the world and instead followed God. Their faith was rewarded as they were delivered from the fiery furnace as told in chapter 3 of the book of Daniel. Their Hebrew names also have unique meaning. Hananiah means “The Lord shows grace.” Mishael means “Who is what God is?” Azariah means “The Lord helps.” This ministry will trust in the Lord and the Lord alone to provide. We trust that since He has raised it up, He will provide.
The logo is meant to represent and glorify God. The house signifies the local church which we plan to work with and which God uses to build His kingdom. The three people in the house represent not only the parts of the Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - but also the people we are trying to reach with the gospel. The wavy line indicates the gospel needs to be preached from one end of the world to the other through plains, valleys, mountains and across the water. The wavy line also represents the waves of trouble we have in life, but we look at the three people in the church, the Trinity, that will strengthen us to see us through our troubles.
