In our last update I mentioned that Belinda was in the process of getting Ruvheneko Trust officially registered as a nonprofit organzation in Zimbabwe. Thanks to your prayers and support, that process is complete! The Trust is now official, which means Belinda can open a bank account (stay tuned for more information about that in the coming weeks) and also PURCHASE LAND! This is the next major step for Belinda. Please pray that as she returns from Harare to her home village she can find a great piece of land that can grow into a community center. If you feel led to donate funds directly to purchasing land, please contact me (Caitie) and we can make arrangements!
Continue to pray for Belinda as she returns home. There is always more work to do and the potential for discouragment lurks around every corner. Thank you for your support!
Update 20 January: See the “photos” page for new pictures of Belinda handing out gifts to children at a Christmas party she hosted (Operation Christmas Child-style). Funds for the gifts, including books and stationary, came from donations from Capernwray students. Those kids are so precious!
