Praises from Zimbabwe

I've shared many heartbreaking stories about life in Africa. The children of Zimbabwe live very difficult lives, especially those who are selected for AOM's orphan ministry in Bulawayo. Because of the multiple heartaches and trials these children suffer, we especially rejoice when they do well. Here's an uplifting report from Janelle about some of the sucesses in our orphan program.

"This year, we have seen a number of our children succeed in exceptional ways. Four have passed well in their advanced high school studies. Nqobizitha studied Chemistry, Physics and Math, and has been accepted to study engineering at a local university. Njabulo is now teaching temporarily at Mzilikazi High School, the very school where he completed his A levels. Kholwani came out with the highest points and is applying to different universities. Jennifer brought us great joy as the first of our children to earn her university degree. She has now started a new job with the Standard Newspaper in Harare.

All of these children have been in our Themba ministry for many years. We are very proud of them, as well as the other children who successfully completed this past school year."

In a country literally falling apart, praise God for the good things happening in the lives of these young people.

  1. Wow! Praise God, praise God! You know--that's such a testament. Over here, these children are taught that they can't overcome where they were raised. AOM proves that is so not true. It's a mindset. Wow! What a praise!
