Latest News from Kuwadzana
Graham and Jane visited in January 2023 and will be reporting on their trip on
Friday 24th March at Westborough Church at 7pm.
In addition to our regular financial support, we sent just under $2300 to them recently to be spent on walls
and floor for the church at Kuwadzana Extension and on food for needs families. There are quite a few
Church members who live in this area who cannot get to the main church on a Sunday morning because
they cannot afford transport, so the extension will make a real difference in their lives.
For stability and wise leadership for Zimbabwe, so that the country may begin to recover and thrive once again.
For God’s provision to continue, so that despite increased financial pressures, the work of the Training Centre can continue, develop and expand to support more students in the future.
Zimbabwe has suffered many years of political unrest and economic decline, which has created a desperate struggle for survival for many people. For over 30 years, we have supported both the work of Kuwadzana Uniting Presbyterian Church and that of Rev. Jonah Masaka, who was the minister until his retirement and continues to run a Christian Training Centre and Bible School for pastors and lay people. The Training Centre also welcomes people in need coming to collect fresh water from the bore hole.
The Church in Kuwadzana is very much the focus of aid and distribution of food and other essentials as well as running a secondary school and pre-school for local children, aiming to give hope for the future and to demonstrate God’s love and provision to their local community.
As a congregation, we regularly send financial support to Jonah and to Kuwadzana Church and when possible, go to visit our friends in Zimbabwe. In addition, our Monday Coffee Morning sponsors a student at the secondary school run by the Church, to enable them to continue their studies until graduation. We also keep in touch with the Church and do our best to respond to additional needs as they arise.
