We thank God for pastors and members of the local churches in our communities of Chinaka and Pimai who have caught the vision to care for the most vulnerable children in their communities. Many pastors are ready to become a part of caring in our communities, and strong relationships have been forming within the local churches as they seek to serve together in unity. As a result of the involvement of the local church, our Zimbabwe communities have strong teams of volunteer Care Workers.
Thank God for the *Maranatha Workshops which were held for caregivers in Pimai Community. Caregivers found much forgiveness and healing through Christ, and the local office was able to support the caregivers well during this time.
Groups of Care Workers in two of our communities started their own Income Generating Activities, providing an opportunity to work together to support each other financially and relationally.
Pray with us for God’s continued grace and guidance in all the work the Hands local office in Zimbabwe is doing in our communities. As they are going through a transition period of growth and expansion, pray God will strengthen and uphold them. Pray that they would feel continuously encouraged as they seek to live out their callings to care for the most vulnerable.
Join in praying with the Hands local office in Zimbabwe as they seek God’s guidance and discernment in expanding into new communities in 2016. Pray for wisdom in identifying the communities in most urgent need of care.
Plans are in progress to create a new Hands local office near the Pimai Community. Pray for God to send the right people.
