 “We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.” Eph. 4:15

The purpose of life is to live and to live a meaningful, abundant and contented life. A life in which growth is normative. The reason Jesus came was that we might have life and that we might have it more abundantly. HOH exists to give children the opportunity to experience His life!

The young people that you see in this picture have all come from our homes, transformational centers and Zimbabwe church projects. Last week, 75 of them gathered at Habitation of Hope for 3 days to grow in their love for the Savior. I wish you could meet each one, but here are some of their comments from the “Leaders Conference.”

“I was reminded afresh that God has a purpose for my life and a purpose that lasts forever. I love children and will go back to teach them the Word of God.”

— Modumo Dube

“I learned that the Lord is our everything, that He is holy and that in Him we should be content.”

— Miriam Mutatu

“I was really touched by the wisdom of God, it is so important considering where we are in our country. We need to look to Him and trust Him for everything.”

— Arnold Mhizha

“I learned that God loves me just the way I am and that obedience is the way we show our love to Him.”

— Sisasenkogi Sibanda

“I learned that we must seek God and that He reveals Himself through Jesus, nature, His word, natural blessings and specific deliverances.”

— Lisa Sibanda

These 75 leaders were also given training by AWANA. They received materials that they will take back to their churches to help younger children grow up into Christ. This is the 4th year that we have been able to have this “leaders camp” and it has become a reality due to your love and generosity. We thank you!
