June 2021 Mission Report from Nhamo

July 6, 2021

Dear Brethren,


Grace and peace be to you all. Its our prayer that this report finds you all in good health. 


June was the most extremely cold month with lots of rain showers experienced in most part of the country. However, we thank our Lord for enabling us to withstand such cold weather without anyone in our family fell sick.


BACKYARD GARDEN

On first week of June,2021, I was so busy preparing our backyard gardening. I made three long raised beds and planted rape, covo, cabbage and some king onion. This will help us as a family to cut off some of our food expenses as well as providing vegetables to our poor members who have no back yard gardens due to water problem.



DOOR TO DOOR KNOCKING

On the 2nd week of June, we were busy with our door to door knocking. We reached several households and shared the gospel with them. Some were very open to ask us some questions and were able to answer them. Many of these people we met requested us to revisit them again. We also managed to distribute several tracts.


VISIT TO OLD PEOPLE'S HOME

On third week, my son and i visited the old people's home and donated some used clothing and 10kg of rice. We used to visit this old people's home before the coronavirus to preach the gospel. One of the former staff there Fadzai Duri a single mom with one child is our strong member. 


LOCKDOWN BACK AGAIN

Since the beginning of June we had several provincial lockdowns where coronavirus has been said to be on hot spot. On the 27th of June, our President announced on Ztv about national lockdown. This is another great hinderance to our Sunday worship. Travelling is going to be also difficult since all buses operators were told to stop operating. So do pray for us especially for our school children.Some are due to sit for their final exams.
