Dates are confirmed for the 2023 music team!
02/02/23 Covid Update: Zimbabwe requires travelers to have a negative covid test taken no more than 48 hours before departure of their first flight. Covid vaccines are not required. We will work with team members to make sure they have all the needed documentation for travel.
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.
