Zimbabwe

Patty and I arrived in Zimbabwe on February 19th with our entire luggage. We are thankful for a safe trip and adapting to life here. We have done it so many times and don’t usually encounter any major problems except adjusting to jet lag!

The Most Miserable Countries in the World

Someone recently sent me a link to the 25 most miserable countries in the world. Zimbabwe has the unique distinction of being number one! You can check out the other 24 if you are up to it?

I don’t necessarily agree with this article as I have travelled in many countries. I haven’t travelled to all the other 24 on the list but I will take Zim over all them sight unseen.

Kudajwashe
Shammah Children’s Home –a HOH partnership with Mbare Faith Ministry is now up on its feet with its first child joining the home. This year has marked a developing relationship with the local Social Welfare office. They just received a baby boy aged 8 months. Kudakwashe Chari (the baby’s name) was born on the 27th of July 2012. His mother was a psychiatric patient. She committed suicide a few months after giving birth to a son who was christened Kudakwashe (God’s sovereign will). Social Welfare placed him with Shammah on the 5th of February 2013. We continue to thank the Lord for His Divine placement of precious children to our HOH residential homes.
Boulder Creek
We hope to have the title deeds to the Boulder Creek property by the end of March or April. We are actually taking over the running of the entire 134 acre property with its infrastructure on March 1st. We believe that the Lord will give us the wisdom and guidance to develop it for His glory. I met all morning with our HOH team here to pray and plan on how to be wise stewards of this tremendous asset. We would greatly appreciate your prayers in this endeavour. Without your faithful support and partnership none of these opportunities would be HOH’s!
