For Zimbabwe and Mozambique

The Lord is my strength and my song;
He has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise Him.

Exodus 15 : 2

This week please pray for Zimbabwe:

That the South Africa Regional Support Team will be able to strengthen their support to our Service Centre in Zimbabwe.

For Farai as he leads our Zimbabwe Service Centre and work which touches communities around Mutare and stretches in to Mozambique, and for the Service Centre team which includes: Barbra in her finance role, Florence in her field coordinator role and Mildred in her hospitality role. Pray that they would be able to mobilise more churches to come and be a part of this work.

Please pray for Sakubve Community, an urban slum outside Mutare, Zimbabwe which faces extreme poverty, rates or prostitution and abuse. Please pray for Pricilla in her role as coordinator of this community based organisation. Thank God for the Care Worker's perseverance in this community as they face overwhelming challenges in their work each day. Pray for them as they make a plan to care for the most vulnerable in their community, that they would find favour in their work. 

Please pray for Pimai Community in Honda Valley, Zimbabwe. Pray for the new Care Centre they have just opened up, that it would aid in their ability to be able to care for the vulnerable children in their village. Please also pray for a water source to be found near the Care Centre so that the Care Workers could begin the garden they want to for their children. Pray for the Care Workers as they advocate for their children to be able to attend the already overcrowded schools, and that they will have strength to continue to walk huge distances over their mountainous area to reach their kids.

Please pray for Macedera Community in Mozambique, a very rural community where the nearest clinic or high school is a full days travel away. Pray for Faustino and Dara as they support this community, and they work towards getting Hands at Work registered in Mozambique. Thank God for the land that this community has been given to utilize in their work of caring for the most vulnerable. Pray that Care Workers would know deeply the work to which they are called, and that they would continually be motived by God's Spirit to continue in this work.

A Pathway Through the Wilderness

Greetings to all who faithfully pray for HANDS AT WORK

For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun. Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness,
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland
Isaiah 43 : 19

Please keep these countries and their communities in your prayers as we continue with training of our care workers in WALKING WITH WOUNDED CHILDREN.



Please pray specifically that the right people will be identified in South Africa and Swaziland to become facilitators of the training for all the communities in that area.

 Pray that all facilitators will be able to balance their new responsibilities with their regular care workers responsibilities.


Please pray for the facilitators in these countries, that they will be able to train the Care Workers to apply their knowledge to bring continued transformation to their own lives and their communities .

That there will be a way to continue mentorship of our facilitators as they face many challenges  and are scattered in many places.

 Be blessed in Jesus’ Name


His Name will be Glorified

Thank you for everyone who faithfully pray for vulnerable children. I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Saviour

They Will Be Filled

Greetings to all in Jesus’ Name,


Please pray for:


For good rains so that they can have a bumper harvest and children can be fed. For the children caring for their ill and dying parents parents to be comforted and supported by the body of Christ. Pray that God will protect the children against witch craft which is practiced in many villages.


Bushbuckridge is one of the poor rural areas in South Africa where Handsatwork is working with vulnerable children in a number of villages. One the biggest challenges these children face is to obtain clean water. They often have to walk long distances and wait for hours in the line to obtain clean water at a community water point. Pray for their safety as it places these children in a situation that can be potentially vulnerable. That the problem will be solved by successful sinking of boreholes.

Thank you,
Be blessed.
