The Shona word chitsungo means "motion," and as we head to Chitsungo, Zimbabwe, we are praying for motion – the kind of movement that can only come from the Lord.

Join us as we pray for a mighty move of God in this rural area which is a brand-new location for one of our Medical Outreaches. We had hoped to minister to the people of Chitsungo in 2017 but the roads proved too difficult at that time. Now, the way is clear for us to serve the people of Chitsungo, and we are ready to get things moving so we can minister there!

As you know, in spite of our preparations, every aspect of this Outreach needs to be covered in prayer. You can have an impact during this time of concentrated ministry through your prayers. Please sign up for a time on our Outreach Prayer Calendar here. Following are daily prayer requests to fuel your intercessions before, during and after the Medical Clinic.


Thank you for joining us in asking the Lord to move in Chitsungo, Zimbabwe!
