One of African Enterprise’s six strategic areas of focus is Integrated Youth Empowerment. The Foxfire training program demonstrates how this goal is being achieved in partnership with local churches and supporters all around the world.
In Zimbabwe, Foxfire teams have been deployed since 1980 and each year they successfully evangelise in word and deed. They engage in the community and culture; demonstrating a level of understanding that is greatly appreciated by those who are reached. This year, four young individuals are set to embark on this unique experience as they seek to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Nelson Thomo (Kingdom Revival Apostolic Ministries), Tafadzwa Shaani (Glad Tidings Fellowship), Tinotenda P. Masimba (Agape International) and Henry Tapfuma (Charis Missionary Church) are currently going through orientation, induction and training before their first deployment. This involves mentorship as they learn the role of Foxfire missions, church planting, evangelism, follow up and discipleship. They are also being equipped with practical life skills and the ability to prepare and preach sermons. This time of learning is a period of great spiritual growth for each individual as they explore personal devotions, prayer, fasting and other aspects of Christian living.
In the near future, Nelson, Tafadzwa, Tinotenda and Henry will be deployed according to the needs of the surrounding areas and the reports of previous Foxfire teams.
As the group moves forward, please be praying for:
- A conducive economic, social & political environment;
- Their upkeep and good health;
- Provision for budgetary and financial resources, sleeping bags, clothing and mobile phones;
- The preparedness of the hosting churches, marketplace schools and communities.
