Sons of Thunder

Learn more about Sons of Thunder and our missionaries, Sal and Renee Marini

Sons of Thunder began its ministry on the farm in Senkobo (near Livingstone), Zambia, in 1996 in obedience to a call from God to “feed Africa physically and spiritually through the enabling of the Holy Spirit.”  Sal and Renee obeyed their call of God “to start a clinic on the farm” in 2005 when they went to Zambia to be medical missionaries with Sons of Thunder. Each month, the clinic now provides full service to approximately 1400 outpatients including 5 ART clinics for over 700 HIV clients and 10 outreaches to neighboring villages. Inpatient care covers admissions for all sorts of diagnoses as well as an average of 30 baby deliveries per month. Today, in addition to the medical clinic, Sal and Renee oversee all operations and ministries on the farm which include the agricultural program of Farming God’s Way, the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church ‘Bethesda Tabernacle’ and the education program consisting of a Preschool, a Primary School, the “Blessed Fund” for secondary school assistance and continual training for self-sufficiency including leadership, business development and management. Thousands of lives are being saved, both physically and spiritually in Zambia through this amazing ministry of Jesus Christ. To God be the glory!
