Hopely, a southern suburb of Zimbabwe’s capital city Harare, is ironically titled. It is an extremely troubled shanty town, in which prostitution, drug use and violence are rife. A number of mysterious child deaths, poor access to clean water and poor sanitation are also cause for concern.

That’s why AE Zimbabwe’s Foxfires are reaching out through evangelistic activities. In August, the youngest evangelists in the AE family set out to share the love of Jesus, to bring hope and purpose to the most hopeless in the 25,000 strong community.

The team is excited to keep you up to date with stories from their ministry, especially the numbers of new believers from the recent 20 – 26 August mission. They connected with men, women and children through song, dance and testimony.

Zimbabwe Foxfires Coordinator Gardner Moyo says,

“The demand for the services of the Foxfire evangelists is overwhelming! We are always looking for more young people to join the ministry.”

Zimbabwe’s Foxfires are continuing to reach the nation! They are moving around cities preaching the gospel of our Lord at revival crusades and youth camps. They are evangelising in communities, schools, colleges and marketplaces. They are praying for the sick, comforting the bereaved, encouraging longstanding believers and supporting new believers from past missions, to keep the faith in their nation. These Foxfires are bringing new hope and healing to their people.

AE Australia is also excited to announce the construction of a new borehole in the Hopely community, provided through generous donors in Australia, that is due to be constructed in the coming months.

Thank you for praying for our Foxfires. Their work is crucial to the Gospel work of AE, in reaching the young populations of many African nations.
