Last night (Tuesday, November 14) I received a message from Denford Chizanga regarding the apparent coup in Zimbabwe. Details are sketchy, but is appears there has been a military coup. It looks like the time of President Robert Mugabe as leader of Zimbabwe may have come to a conclusion.
Many of us at Madison have been to Zimbabwe multiple times. We love Denford and Shingi, and we unreservedly support the work of Africa Development Mission. Our primary concern is for the people and their safety. Certainly, we are much in prayer for the ministry there – that the gospel can continue to go forward regardless of who is in power. Please pray that the Lord’s hand is on whatever transition takes place, and that the Lord brings Zim through whatever turmoil that takes place.
Please take a moment today and pray for the beautiful country of Zimbabwe and the precious people who live there.
