“Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.  Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”  Ps 82:3-4

 

Challenges

 Life as you we all know isn’t always filled with laughter and smiles!  There are tears and heartaches on our journey.  Recently a little guy by the name of Tapiwa Mhondiwa took his last breath.

He was part of one of our many feeding projects in a rural area called Chivhu where we feed 150 children a day.  Since Zimbabwe is 60% rural it goes without saying that we must never exclude the rural areas.  We are saddened by the loss of Tapiwa as well as another little guy named Tashley Tugwete from the same feeding project due to HIV.  We are grateful however that during their short lives they were shown the love of Jesus by God’s people.

I would like to introduce you to Greater Sisiphikile Nkomo.  Her father passed away and then her mother in 2008.  Greater started living with her grandmother but had some serious health issues.  She then became part of our Alaska Mine Feeding project run by Pastor Maxwell and his church team.  The transformation in her life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually has been amazing.   She is now a very joyful girl with an easy going spirit. What a great joy to see her rising above the sicknesses that plagued her early childhood.

 

Patty and I will be heading to Zimbabwe on the evening of July 9th for 3 months.  We will have two US church teams that will minister to our children there during our stay.  I also plan to do another pastor’s conference for our Hands of Hope pastors the first part of May.  It looks like we will be spending a good deal of time at our new “Habitation of Hope” property.  Thank you for praying and for your generous support that enables us to see His kingdom come and His will done in the lives of precious children at risk!
