Would you join me in giving towards the
following Zimbabwe Project Fund ~ Dai Sup

December 2021

Dear Intercessors Across America:

Dai Sup Han and I have been discussing the current plight among pastors and their families in Zimbabwe and how the Church in North America might be able to contribute.

Briefly, in Zimbabwe there are many small neighbourhood churches ranging in number from about 20 – 100 members. The COVID lockdown forced all the churches in Zimbabwe to close for about 18 months. A narrow internet bandwidth and the fact that most people are too poor to purchase the necessary data to connect online means that most churches have found it hard to engage with their people.   The lockdown also badly impacted an already vulnerable economy. About 80% of the population is involved in informal trading and they were banned from doing business for a while. The combination of no work, and no tithes and offerings erased pastors' livelihoods.  In the city of Bulawayo alone, over 700 pastor families in need have been registered.

I was first made aware of the plight many pastors faced in trying to feed their families in early August, at the same time as a very large agricultural corporation in our area was also informed.  The company is called Sondelani, and they immediately set about doing what they could to distribute small food parcels of onions, a cabbage, half a dozen eggs and some tomatoes to about 200 families every 2 weeks.  I was able to source an immediate $5000 to help supplement this distribution, and, as I have communicated the need, others have subsequently contributed to the fund. About 400 families are currently being helped with several hundred still in need.

One branch of Sondelani assists rural Zimbabweans to become profitable chicken farmers.  Over the past several years it has become evident that pastors in Zimbabwe need to be bi-vocational.  The COVID lockdown has made this even more essential. Chicken farming could be a genuine solution, so as part of this relief project, Sondelani is now training those pastors who are interested, to start raising chickens to supplement their incomes.

Churches are opening up again although numbers are still limited.  Your immediate contribution will help provide a Christmas food parcel, and chicks and feed to new farming pastors. Sondelani will continue to focus on this training for pastors and providing the initial chicks and feed in 2022.    Please email for more information on the budget for the costs involved.  Click HERE to donate, and in “Name of the Project” type “Zimbabwe Project Fund” and then the amount.

Thank you for considering this need.  I am reminded of Paul’s commendation of the Macedonian church in II Cor 8 regarding their generosity in helping to meet the needs of the saints in Jerusalem.  This situation in Zimbabwe is not an isolated incident.  Pastors around the world have deeply

suffered from the impact of COVID and the lockdown. What a great opportunity this is to reassure the international body of Christ that God has not abandoned them.

God bless you for standing with our brothers and sisters in difficult times,
