Jesus Christ Is Lord


Much has been said about Covid 19, but what has it done to the Church in rural Zimbabwe? Unlike the city churches where Zoom was the platform for preaching and keeping in touch as well as different forms of media like Instagram and Twitter, rural churches stopped meeting during lockdown and it was our hope at Crossroads that the saints would hold on to Jesus. 

We are meeting again and know that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour. We trust Him to do an amazing work in us and through us.

Are you really saved?

This was the message that Stephen Manhanga shared at Hope City Church. He shared from Luke 3 and focused on verses 10 - 14 where the multitudes, the publicans and the soldiers asked "teacher, what must we do?"
John's message for repentance was turn away from sin and turn to God. We need both.
We got into smaller groups and discussed 3 questions

  • What is contentment?
  • When is enough, enough?
  • Can we really be content with what we earn?
The message was received well from the saints at Hope City Church.

Mother's Day Thoughts.......

With messages going forwards and backwards and many thoughts of ‘mothers’ being shared –

It’s easy to see why some people are able to say ‘sweet’ words of love to their mothers and demonstrate their love for their mothers. This day is set aside to ‘spoil’ mothers. It’s easy when relationships with mothers are good or with mums who have a vested interest in your spiritual, social, emotional and mental well-being, with mums that have been ‘there’ for you though the highs and lows and even when you are an adult with children of your own, mothers continue to be mothers through the generations.

There are those whose relationships with their mothers is toxic or has been toxic and no matter how hard they tried, they never measured up or heard the words ‘I love you’ from their mums. Words that build confidence or self-esteem were scarce or non-existent. Instead of “Mother’s Day” being special and full of sentimental thoughts, it’s a day that brings back raw pain. Forgiveness and healing are needed – much easier said than done!
Others still have only the memory of the mothers who are no longer with us. Those memories can bring a smile to your face as you treasure them or bring unwanted tears to your eyes.

Mothers are there to love, care for, nurture, guide, protect, pray for …….. their children, be it biological, within a family, within a community and within the body of Christ.

Here’s wishing you a peaceful Mother’s Day.
