ITMI's Kelly and Cherise Smith live and serve in Zulu Natal, South Africa.
Zulu Natal is one of the areas most effected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Animism and tribal practices have locked many people there into a way of life that is difficult and destructive.
Families are torn apart by tragedies regularly. Death of a loved one is part of the fabric of everyday life.
Tragic deaths from HIV/AIDS are ruining life after life, including hers.
The Smiths have embedded themselves in the community and are doing all they can to offer life, hope and salvation through Jesus Christ. They teach local classes for the community, provide Christmas celebrations in local schools (Project Christmas Blessing), support local believers in living their faith and reaching others, and use 7 Rivers Farm's resources to bless those in need.
Now you can see for yourself some of the ways you've impacted Zulu Natal, South Africa, through your support of the Smith family and their ministry!
