06/09/23 Covid Update: The vaccine is not required. It’s a little unclear if Zimbabwe is still requiring a negative covid test or not. Official websites still say it’s required, but news reports are saying that was dropped on May 10. (Official websites for Zimbabwe are very slow to update their info.) We will get a definite answer before the trip and make sure everyone has the paperwork they need to enter the country.

Team Activities

In a country of orphans there’s no end to the children’s ministry needed. Zimbabwe is one of the most economically depressed countries in the world and AIDS has ravaged the adult population, leaving many children without training, parenting, or provision. You can be a part of loving the kids of Zimbabwe and showing them Jesus through music camp ministry!

We’ll work with a team of dedicated Christian mentors and translators to provide introductory music skills to the kids, including theory, music history, instruments, games, songs, and skits! Zimbabwe kids love music, but few of them have any opportunity for formal training. There are a good number of children’s and youth choirs around Zimbabwe, and they provide an incredibly important healthy social connection for kids. We will build on that structure with the music camps and we’re greatly anticipating the sweet relationships we can build by teaching new skills, sharing the Gospel, and loving like Christ!

Expect to be challenged as stretched as you pour out love in a part of the world that needs to experience the love of Christ in action.
