Challenge News in Zimbabwe
It never ceases to amaze us at Challenge News when we are blessed to
receive regular reports about how God is at work around the globe.
The attached Prayer Letter includes a personal report & photos just
in from Pastor Jabulani Mudenda, with his amazing news of how the Challenge
Newspaper is being used to touch the hearts of those in great need in Zimbabwe.
Christmas is a time for giving. If you would like to join the team who support
the Lord’s work around the world through the Challenge Ministry, you
can forward your gift with the enclosed response form.
For every paper printed and distributed in Africa, through your generous
support, it is estimated that approximately ten people will read of the life changing news about Jesus.
On behalf of the team at Challenge News, we pray you and your family have a safe
and blessed Christmas as we remember our Saviour who came for us
Prepared by Multi Ministries Zimbabwe — Rev Jabulani Mudenda
After having spent a week at the REAP Conference
where we enjoyed ourselves tremendously, we came
back to Zimbabwe together with a team of young people
from the Rosebank Union church. The team came
in on the 6th of December and spent the next 8 days
embarking on door to door outreaches, community
work and ministering in various ways to the people of
Bulawayo. On the third day of their mission the team,
which comprised 26 young people, together with other
local young people distributed the Challenge Newspaper
around the city and managed to distribute and
handout over 16000 copies of the Newspaper.
The distribution went very well, many churches welcomed
these young people in their churches so that they
could conduct the distribution, the Challenge was welcomed
with open arms across the city, individuals who
also received the newspaper responded very well. After
the distribution process we received 108 responses in
two days, with people calling in and sending text messages.
“I lost my wife 3 weeks ago and was planning to
take my own life too. This morning I came across three
young people distributing this newspaper which I went
through for over an hour and I came across a statement
which said ‘Will God love someone like me?’
and I had to talk to someone for my life had changed
completely, I’m glad I came across this newspaper
through these young people."
Yet another man who came across the team
distributing the Challenge came to our offices also
asking whether God could love someone like him. We
sat down with him, heard his story and afterwards
prayed with him and offered him some discipleship
material to help him start his brand new
life with Christ.
This outreach showed us how spiritually desperate
our Zimbabwean people are and the need is so great.
Please send us more of this wonderful newspaper.
Our appreciation goes to Carl Carmody and the
Australian team, Dr Harold Peasley and Multi Ministries
South Africa for making it possible that we too receive
this wonderful paper.
Finally, we would like to thank all the sponsors,
the prayer partners and all the supporters for making
the Challenge newspaper what it is, without you the
paper would not reach Zimbabwe. We have come to
realize that there is a great need of this paper here
in Zimbabwe, it is easy to read, easy to use and very
useful, many have come to Christ because of the
Challenge Newspaper, thank you and may God bless you.
