Deep in the heart of southern Africa there is a land that seems to have broken all the rules.

The people are loving and friendly. Helping one's neighbor is a way of life, not a one-time action. Violent crime is rare. Education is paramount in the minds of parents—almost 80% of those under 40 years of age have gone to school for at least 4 years. Most important, the spiritual needs of these good people cry out for something more that the ancestral worship so common in this part of the world. Almost 100 years age this situation was seen by the Christians, especially those of the New Zealand Church of Christ. In a remote area of southeastern Zimbabwe they built schools and offered medicine. Malaria was controlled, sleeping sickness lessened, and many tropical diseases were declining.

People of Zimbabwe

Today, after 30 years of independence, the people have not changed. Economic woes plague this little nation of Zimbabwe, about the size of Texas, and many of the diseases are slowly beginning to return, but all in all the fields are white unto harvest. Now, under the leadership of Hippo Valley Christian Mission, some 17,000 students hear God’s word daily. HASTEN, committed to evangelism via Christian doctors, clinics and nurses, opened the door for even more to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

In the last year we have constructed a building that will allow God’s message to be heard for years to come. We are in the process of restructuring and modernizing medical and Christian missions such as Damarakanaka (“Dama”), and numerous churches through the vision of Dr. Pruett. A fine Christian physician, Dr. Zindoga Bungu, is the medical director for widely separated labors of love.

The health of the children is paramount
