Despite many years of oppression and economic hardships, Cozmore, his family, and team have remained strong, supportive, and faithful.
After last month’s article, there is a growing interest among ITMI supporters in the ministry our partner Charl van Wyk’s project leader, Cozmore Fungulani, is doing in Gwayi River Zimbabwe, though he faces persecution and steep economic challenges.
Charl, who is planning a visit to Gwayi River later next month, writes,
The Gospel has a strong presence in Gwayi River, where we’ve ministered by running camps for youth and married couples. One lady, after an encouraging Bible teaching on marriage at our camp, said that she and her husband felt like they were on honeymoon again.
Our ministry has played a significant role in the society and by God’s grace we’ve witnessed a boldness among our brothers and sisters to stand against evil.
Our vegetable production and chicken farming projects are used to teach people to produce their own food. Despite many years of oppression and economic hardships, Cozmore, his family, and team have remained strong, supportive, and faithful.
The Gwayi River chicken farming project is used to teach people to raise their own food.
Please give generously today. Together, we can tell Cozmore and his family, and our sisters and brothers, that they are not alone. Jesus Christ never leaves them. And neither will His Church.
