When we first visited Gutu, Zimbabwe, in 2014, 75-year-old Mandinyenya spent five hours waiting to get into the Clinic and said it was well worth the wait. He also said, “I want the people in America to pray for us. And I want the Clinic to come back again!”

We did return to Gutu, and, now, we are going again. It’s been three years since our last visit. The fact that Jewish Voice is bringing another free Medical Clinic to the area is, no doubt, good news to the people of Gutu. However, we desire to bring more than just medical treatment. We hope to see people deeply impacted by THE Good News: salvation through Yeshua (Jesus). And like Mandinyenya, we too hope for prayer covering – yours, from wherever you are ̶ for the people of Gutu, our team ministering to them, and the whole region.

Please sign up to help cover this Outreach in prayer from wherever you may be and at a convenient time for you. Here is a day-by-day prayer guide to help you stay in step with what we are doing and know how to pray:

In Yeshua’s name, Amen.
