"The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children" Romans 8:16
"Providing physical, emotional and spiritual support through the healing love of Jesus Christ to families and children coping with HIV/AIDS."
Although our mission's history includes a children's home, the government of Zimbabwe is currently discouraging children's institutions and encouraging the support of extended family within the community. However, extended families are often unable to provide adequate necessities of life for these children.
This is where we come into the picture, working through the local African church to identify children at risk, and training church members to volunteer their time for the program.

The small sub-Saharan country of Zimbabwe has a total population of 12.5 million, of which 1 million children have been orphaned due to AIDS (2009 Unicef). This translates into one million children who are at risk of hunger, illiteracy, abuse and death.
For most of her life Sharon had known pain and sorrow. She was orphaned early with the untimely death of both her mother and father who died from AIDS. She lived with her grandmother who could not cope with the expense of feeding and educating this little girl...especially providing the medical care that she needed, for Sharon was also infected with HIV, probably acquired through sexual abuse. We invited Sharon into our sponsorship program in 2010 but her body was already broken. Sadly, she became one of a million children, when she passed away in 2011. We honor Sharon's life and desire to stop this from happening to other children whenever possible.
