PROCLAIMING GOD'S GOOD NEWS
BY FAITH, WE WORK TO SEE:
Zimbabwe fully evangelized, that no one may live and die without hearing the gospel and responding to it.
Believers discipled to live out the gospel in word and deed.
Christ’s compassionate love shared among the poor, marginalized, and hurting.
Communities where He is least known
Immigrants from India
Indians arrived in Zimbabwe as traders as far back as 1890. Their population has steadily increased, and by 2016, they numbered slightly over 100,000. Most are business people of the Gujarati ethnic group, living in urban areas. Most speak English, and a few speak indigenous languages.
They are a closed community, having contact and interaction with other ethnicities only in their shops. The majority are Muslims and Hindus, and a very small number are Christians. Pray that God sends to Zimbabwe a missionary of Indian or Asian background, who may be able to engage the Indian communities and present the gospel of Jesus.
Pray for the Church in Zimbabwe to stay strong against heresy.
Pray for disciple-making ministries to take root in every church and strengthen believers.
Pray for the Church to look outwards and participate in the Great Commission.
Pray for peaceful elections and economic stability in 2018.
Pray for God to protect the nation and His Church against the increase and threats of Islam.
