LAMP Publishing finds new and creative ways to get quality printed materials and books into the hands of Portuguese-speaking Christians and churches across Africa. Working directly with Christian authors and publishers, LAMP Publishing obtains the licensing rights to translate, print, and distribute their works in the Portuguese-speaking nations of Africa.
A Lâmpada — Portuguese for “The Lamp” — is a quarterly newspaper/magazine that curates relevant news, theological articles, and practical resources for Portuguese-speaking readers in Africa. We have arrangements with The Christian Chronicle, and other ministries and authors to translate their materials into Portuguese to include in the publication. A Lâmpada is currently being distributed in Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Angola, and Mozambique.
Thomas “W” Fife (March 22, 1931 – June 21, 2020) was a missionary in Brazil who first visited Angola in 1985. Over the next two decades, his passion for theological education brought him back to the African continent where he visited and taught church leaders in Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau. Tom’s passion for theological education in Africa will be able to continue through this scholarship program.
LAMP Healthcare Resources is a new project that is being conceived as a resource for medical and community development training and education for Portuguese-speaking Africa. Come back soon to find out more about this new ministry.
