WM Project 2012-13

We are all very excited about the EFCC’s Women’s Ministries new project unveiled at Conference. Zimbabwe is facing extreme poverty and debilitating disease, which has pushed the average life expectancy to under 30 years old.

This project is an effort to bring assistance to Zimbabweans, to show compassion, and to share hope.

The nuts and bolts of project focus on agricultural improvements which are primarily aimed at subsistence farmers, and which will have a benefit on the whole community.

Please share this video with your small groups, your church and anyone else who you think should see it.
