2017 Zim Mission Team

Zimbabwe Mission 2017

2017 Zim Mission Team Mission report: Coenraad Swanepoel Early on a rainy, cold July morning , a team of 13 missionaries set off from South Africa on a 10 day mission trip to Zimbabwe.

After having been hugely impacted by the teachings in Rooted myself, I was keen to impart that same knowledge and truth to others. I started going through the Rooted Discipleship Guide and when we got to the section on baptism, she asked me to baptize her. The growth in this lady has been astounding, from taking antidepressants and suffering from major depression; today she is a joyful person, living in the abundant life that Jesus promised. My nine year old brother visited our family from London over Christmas and we ended up having some deep spiritual time together, praying and encouraging one another.
