Maybe you have wondered why we as a mission try to produce vegetables. Why don’t we just buy vegetables from one of the small little local stores in Onseepkans, or in the nearest town?
Some of Johan’s thoughts on world peace, inspired by a quiet Sunday morning on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia.
ITMI’s Lazarus Yezinai tells us of a woman named Miss Anita who came to the church that ITMI helped start from the teachings of VCLi’s S.A.L.T. Discipleship training. The church is located on the front lines of battle, inside this Muslim slum. Miss Anita was not at church to worship, but specifically to…
ITMI’s Vicky Waraka saw her standing in the door of her house. She was 85 years old. Her face was tense, reflecting the hard life she led. Vicky’s gracious smile and greeting prompted a smile from the old woman. “Welcome,” she said, giving Vicky a chair. The elderly woman began to share…
Three young men from Gwayi River, Zimbabwe are launching an exciting new venture, even though the odds have been stacked against all of them their whole lives. What is this exciting new venture? A one-of-a-kind tech solution? A breakthrough discovery? A much-needed service no one has thought of?It’s none of those.

But that wouldn’t be quite accurate. Not yet anyway.
Last month, ITMI’s Excellence Christian Academy celebrated its 20th Birthday. That’s 20 years of shaping and molding young lives to understand the world from a Biblical perspective. That’s 20 years of reaching families and parents that haven’t necessarily heard the Good News. That’s 20 years of influence in the community of Kabwe, where ECA is located. That’s 20 years of impact on the country of Zambia. How are we doing this through a small Christian School in one city?

It was an early morning in South Sudan.Martha (name changed) fearfully peeked between the bamboo that formed a bathroom structure. She didn’t dare breathe. Even the sound of a breath could make it the last one she drew into her throbbing chest. Her eyes were dry. She didn’t even dare to blink. She watched from behind the bamboo as her neighbors murdered her brothers and sisters.
