September 2021 Update from Nhamo and Esther

September 2021 Update from Nhamo and Esther

We thank God for continuing to enabling us to sail through difficult years since Covid-19 hit the entire world in 2019. The effects of the current Covid -19 is still with us. This is not easy however, we are managing through the providence of God. We are also very humbled brethren by your commitment, prayers and your financial support. May God continue to walk in your midst.


PREACHING AND TEACHING

I preached and taught Bible study throughout the entire month of September. I also got one invitation from a sister congregation where I taught about church leadership. Sometimes the community around us asks me to help with preaching during funeral wakes. In September alone I attended three funeral wakes in our community.

On the 18th of September, 2021 I was asked by community chairman to give a short message to a community gathering before they got vaccinated at a community clinic.


SOUP KITCHEN

My wife and I are planning to start a soup kitchen at our small congregation. Our goal is to win orphans, and vulnerable children to Christ. So do pray for us.


DOOR KNOCKING

The last two weeks of Septmber, 2021 were busy doing door to door knocking. During this effort, we managed to engage with several new prospects. Last Sunday we had two prospects who came for our Sunday worship. May you please pray for them that the Lord may open their hearts.


VISIT TO OLD PEOPLE'S HOME

We managed to to visit old people's home in our poor community twice during the month of September. I had an opportunity to share the gospel there. But I was so much touched with the hard life which the citizens are facing there. Many sleeps on the cold floor with no proper blankets.


HARVESTING OF KING ONION ON OUR BACKYARD GARDEN

On the 25th of September, we managed to harvest some king onion on our backyard garden. We gave some to our poor members. We are now getting prepared to start ploughing in our renting field. We usually receive our first rain at the end of October.


CURRENT SITUATION IN ZIMBABWE

We want to thank the Lord that the current situation concerning Covid-19 is now much better. Churches are now allowed to meet for worship but with limited number. As i write this about 3 million people in Zimbabwe had been vaccinated.


PRAYER REQUESTS

Please continue to pray for us and our work. Pray also for our leaders in Zimbabwe. Pray for our poor members that they may not loose heart during this difficult time where many survives by doing mini piece works.


In Christ.
