Zimbabwe

"Thank you South Chingford" - from our friends at Blanket Mine Baptist Church, Zimbabwe, as they receive and open the barrel sent as a gift from our church to support their mission and ministry.

 

We are delighted to partner with Blanket Mine Baptist Church in Zimbabwe.  This is a growing church in a mining village in Matabeleland South.  It has a membership of approximately 150, consisting of mine workers and their families.

Despite facing numerous financial challenges, the church is committed to mission and outreach in its local community, particularly amongst children and families.  As part of this, the church is sometimes able to pay for local children to attend school.  We recently collected items of school uniform, and have shipped a barrel to Zimbabwe for this church containing school uniforms (so the children can go to school in uniform!), Bibles and other gospel materials.

We continue to support the church in prayer, and are grateful for their prayers too!  In due course, we may explore the possibility of sending a mission team to visit the church to encourage and support them in their mission.
