Reflecting on 2012

Celebration service at Crossroads
As another year draws to an end, we are so thankful to God for all He has done in and through the folk of Mablauwuni community. We have not only seen people grow and have a deeper relationship with God, but we've seen the community come together through activities like the:
  1. Water Project
  2. Cosmos Health Care
  3. Two weddings of emerging leaders from Crossroads
  4. HIV/AIDS Testing at Crossroads
  5. Immunisation Week at Crossroads
  6. Honouring the elderly
  7. Ladies Conference
  8. Helping New Life for All Church build up one of their toilets etc

People from Crossroads have also been encouraged by the
  • Clothes distribution at Crossroads
  • Megavision 2012 at River of Life Church, Eastlea, Harare
  • Mbonisi Malaba, leader of New Creation church, Bulawayo, come and share at Crossroads
  • Donation of benches and tables from a USA Workteam - thanks to Lance & Elizabeth Edwards
  • Thanksgiving service at New Creation Church
  • Crossroads Celebration service to mark the end of the year

Despite all the wonderful things that have happened, we have faced many challenges as well. God has been faithful through it all and we know that what He has started, He'll bring to completion.

We look forward to 2013 as the new year begins with prayer and fasting, Vision Sunday and an Early Childhood Development Centre at Crossroads. (ECD - Read the article on Early Childhood Development to find out more....)

God bless you all and we hope you'll continue to pray for us as God impacts Mablauwuni Community.

Profiling leaders in Mablauwuni area pt 2

Emelia Sibanda
Emelia Sibanda, better known as Mai Sibanda, is 73 years old. She is married to Misheck Sibanda who is 77 years old and they live in Mablauwuni Community. They had 7 children but 4 have since passed on, leaving 3 that are alive.

Emelia went to Silozwe Primary School (many years ago) and she is one of the Community leaders. She oversees Silozwana village.

Emelia feels that in the last 5 years, the positive changes in the community has been the starting up of Ebenezer Training College as young people are now occupied and they are not going to South Africa. Another positive change that she has seen is people worshipping God differently as their lives have changed. The Church is impacting the community.

A desire that Mai Sibanda has for Mablauwuni community is to see people loving each other and to continue worshipping together.

Nuggets from "God Meant It For Good" pt 2

"IF GOD PUTS HIS FINGER ON YOU, it is enough to change you, your family, your church - even a nation or the world."

God took over Joseph's life and we notice.....
  1. It was without any advance notice.
  2. It was on his 'sore spot'. The first thing which has to be dealt with is often the thing most dear to us but a sore spot to everybody else. In Joseph's case it was the coat of many colours.
  3. Joseph underwent the shock of seeing how sinful and frail other people were. Joseph knew that his brothers were not fond of him, but he did not know they were capable of doing what they did. Why does God want us to see the frailty of other men? The answer is in Psalm 118:8 "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man." We must all learn this lesson sooner or later, but it comes hard. We want to find at least one other person we can totally trust and say, 'I will believe anything you say.' As soon as we begin to do that we are setting ourselves up for the greatest hurt of our lives! 
  4. God brings Joseph to a place of apparent despair. Joseph was cast into a pit. there was nothing for him to do except for him to pray. We learn to trust God as he is proven through an unprecedented situation.
  5. God brought Joseph to a point of no return. His 10 brothers lifted him out of the pit but sold him to the Ismaelites. They wanted to get Joseph completely out of the way. The Ismaelites brought Joseph into Egypt. There was no turning back for him now.
Do you know what it is like to start a new life when that isn't what you want to do, but it is thrust upon you? It may be the consequence of losing a loved one, a marriage breakdown, an illness, being lied about, or betrayed. You have to start all over.

Despite Joseph's upheaval, God made things bearable for him:
  • Joseph had rest from his enemies. He had a rough time and became the victim of cruel hatred. There came a time when God said, "enough is enough." God knows how much we can bear.
  • Joseph had the presence of the Lord. Genesis 39:2 "And the Lord was with Joseph....."
  • Joseph prospered in his new career. God did this to encourage him. He never demoralizes us

Brilliant and Sithabiso's wedding pt 1

Snapshots of the wedding this morning.....

From behind these stunning granite rocks which overlook Ethandweni Children's Home, came the lovely Sithabiso Tshuma. She was raised at the children's home from the age of 8 by a Dutch couple who started the children's home about 15 years ago. Sithabiso said she had really enjoyed her time there. There seems to be a closeness between the children and their 'parents'/teachers. 3 vehicles, full of folk from Ethandweni, came to support Brilliant & Sithabiso. That was really great!

Sithabiso Tshuma
Sitha made a beautiful bride and everyone was so proud of her and Brilliant for being such an example to young people. They both said that they 'absolutely, certainly' wanted to marry each other. Pastor Patson Netha did so well with the marriage ceremony infront of about 200  or so people. The bridal team enetertained the crowd with their energised dances.

Title: Finances, Family and Future By Scott Marques

Text: 1 Timothy 6: 6 – 12

V 6 Paul is writing to Timothy, trying to tell him how to live. He says ‘Godliness with contentment is great gain. The life we are living is very difficult and tough. Life will get even harder. Not only is life very tough but we living in a world driven by commerce where we need money to do many things. Commerce wants to get more money from us and it’s done through advertising that makes us feel we need it. It makes us feel like we are not enough as we are and creates a strong need and want in us. We need something else to be complete. It makes us feel like we are not rich enough or beautiful enough etc. It creates a strong need and want in me. Our flesh does its own advertising through comparison hence we lose being content over finances, over relationships, life circumstances etc.

Finances, family and future are very powerful in marriage. The person who we thought was good, we become discontent with them because they don’t have enough finances, family or future. This road we are on, we don’t like it and want to change it. We want someone else’s life. This is what celebrities are all about. The Television and media paint these pictures right down to the mobile phone we have. There is Face Book in Kezi.

Paul is saying to Timothy, Godliness with contentment is great gain. We need to recognize the lie of the enemy that as hard as my life is, as imperfect as my spouse is, as tough as my future is, God has a plan for all of it. We are living a very special life. We will have food and clothing because God is in control. As hard as life is, God is providing for every single one of us. We will have enough. “Don’t be anxious about anything……..” We’ll be fine.

We are all going to die. We brought nothing into this world and we’ll take nothing from it. Our comfort on earth is not as important as we think it is. The families God put us in are His design and it’s not a mistake. Every child is conceived in the image of God. No one is a mistake. My family is my family……..for all eternity.

We need to be different. Instead of complaining, let’s be content and be thankful. We have sinned against God and against one another. We are not entitled to anything. The Bible says, the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord. God uses the weak thing of this world to confound the wise. Don’t give up, don’t hold back and persevere. It’s tough for everyone but God will not test us beyond that which we are able to bear. We need to pursue His Kingdom. When I am weak, then He is strong. Godliness with contentment is great gain.

V 9 “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.” Life has enough trouble when you are doing the right thing. Don’t do the wrong thing as we complicate things.

We need to live free lives with Godliness and contentment. Don’t think our situation is poor and we need so much more money. Money doesn’t fix anything. Whatever relationships we are in, they are precious. We need to be soft and encourage one another. Don’t treat people like they are small and insignificant. See people in the image of God. (Imago Deo) Be content. Don’t think the life path you are on is small. How I live counts the same as everyone else lives. We don’t have a small life. Each decision, attitude etc counts for eternity. Godliness with contentment is great gain.

The Kingdom of God is about righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. Be content in righteousness, peace and joy. God is doing something new in Matabeleland and wants to demonstrate the glory of God. Where there is bitterness on finance, relationships etc, God will demonstrate His glory. We will know joy, peace, righteousness, provision, his calling etc.

Thanksgiving service at New Creation pt 1

Pretty Ndlovu with the New Creation worship team.

 We had a great service yesterday as people from Crossroads, Thembalezizwe and New Creation all gathered under the marquee at New Creation. The guest speaker was Scott Marques, Apostolic leader of Newfrontiers Zimbabwe and beyond and leader of River of Life Church, Eastlea in Harare.

Scott Marques sharing Pretty's testimony
The praise and worship was excellent and we were so pleased that Pretty Ndlovu from Crossroads was able to join the New Creation team leading worship. She did so well and enjoyed herself. Scott Marques also took time to share part of Pretty's testimony and how she has been genuinely impacted by Crossroads and Ebenezer.

Stephen Manhanga, leader of Crossroads, shared the nugget and while the offering was being taken up, he called the Crossroads folk to the front to lead everyone in a song. Needless to say, the song choice was  good and everyone enjoyed singing it; "Jesu wedu number 1" - amazing being a cheerful, smiling, singing giver!

Nuggets from "God Meant It For Good" pt 1

Joseph's technicolour dream coat
A closer look at the life of Joseph:

  • God began to deal with Joseph when he was 17 years old.
  • The key to understanding Joseph is provided by Stephen in Acts 7:9: "....God was with him."
  • God gave Joseph dreams. God has given to you something that nobody else can do because God made you different. (There may be gifts that you admire in someone else but you need to be the best YOU that you can be. Don't try to be someone else.)
  • It is possible to abuse the gifts God has given us.
  • Flaunting a gift springs from a desire to be admired. But the result is always the opposite: it makes people positively dislike us.
  • What Joseph needed was preparation and polishing. He was God's diamond in the rough. He needed alot of polishing before his time would come.
  • That is the way God sees each of us - diamonds that no one around us recognises. It is what God sees that matters. He sees us with that robe of righteousness.

The God of New Beginnings

In the Bible, there is a very powerful scripture which says: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Cor 5:17

We recently preached at an event where every colour, creed and gender gathered together to ask God to bring hope to the region which has been devastated by death, destruction, violence and greed. All we have to do is ask. Jeremiah 33:3 says: "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know."

God is the God of new beginnings.

I don't know what you're going through in your family, farming or business at the moment, but I do know who can give you a new beginning - Jesus Christ. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5 - 6

As soon as we do things God's way, then we'll have a brand new start. It's when we persist in doing things our own way and then ask God to put his stamp of approval on it, that we'll find it doesn't work.
God won't be manipulated or dictated to by any of His creation. We need to do what he has told us to.


Give each other an opportunity to start again and the God of new beginnings will definitely be on your side.

May God bless you as you continue living one day at a time knowing that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1.

ECD at Crossroads in 2013

What is ECD? ECD stands for Early Childhood Development and focuses on children aged 4 and 5 years old giving them basic education, social skills, fine and gross- motor skills etc. We would like the children to receive nutrition and stimulation and have an excellent start to their education as this is a very crucial stage in the child's education.

The exciting news is that Crossroads will be used as an Early Childhood Development Centre from January 2013. The Centre will cater for children in Mablauwuni community and surrounding areas so that the little kids don't have to walk long distances to get to Nduna Primary School or cross a flooded Maleme river to get to the school. Crossroads is quite a central venue.

We will be working in conjunction with Nduna Primary School and will assist when needed.

This has come as GREAT news for the parents/guardians of little children in Mablauwuni and a relief to Mr Mpofu, Headmaster of Nduna Primary School as he was concerned about the little kids.

It's so good that the church building can be used to serve the community in such a practical and relevant way. Praise God!

Yesterday, Nduna Primary School - a local school in Magobeni, had their graduation ceremony for the Early Childhood Development age group. The Headmaster  - Mr Mpofu, gave a speech and so did the Chairman of the School Development Committee (SDC). The little children entertained everyone with dance, a short skit and reciting letters. There were about 15 ECD children that garduated. Renee Cunningham was the guest of honour this year.

Update on Brilliant and Sithabiso's wedding....

Brilliant Khoza and Sithabiso Thsuma
6 days and counting.......that is the count down to the wedding. On Wednesday 5th December 2012 is the big day for Brilliant and Sithabiso. They will be getting married at Shalom Camp Site and they are expecting quite a large crowd to attend. The bridal party are busy practising their dance steps and all the other 'nitty gritties' are almost sorted.
What happened about the 6 cows that were part of the lobola negotiations? Brilliant and Sithabiso have negotiated with her family on how and when the cows are to be paid.

Pastor Patson Netha from New Life for All Church is the marriage officer while Stephen Manhanga from Crossroads Community Church, will be sharing the word.

Brilliant and Sithabiso have been a shining example to young people in the community. They 'fell in love' while they were still apprentices at Ebenezer Training Centre and have received much support, counsel and discipleship over the years. They have had 'trying' times especially when they moved to Maphisa for a couple of months but, they have come out stronger and are eager to say their "I Do's". 

What a testimony for young people in the community. Here's to Brilliant and Sithabiso.......for the 5th of December.......

Spiritual Well-Being by Angus Buchan pt (vi)

Perfect love casts out fear

In John 15:13, we read "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." The Lord Jesus Christ is the perfect example of this. He died so that we can live. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if this world had more love in it, there would be fewer problems. It needs to start with you and me.
The most well-known chapter in the Bible must be 1 Corinthians 13, which talks all about love. Love is practical. When you tell your loved one that you love them, that's a wonderful thing, and we need to do that too, but it always needs to be followed up with action.

Love is patient. It's kind. It's not puffed up or arrogant, says the Bible. So we need to be quick to forgive. We need to be patient and we need to give people a second chance.
The love of Christ has given me a new perspective in life. As a younger man, while still farming, if my workers didn't get it right the first time then there would be trouble. That's not the right attitude at all. some of us learn quicker than others. Others are slow learners and need lots of understanding and encouragement.
Knowing this, we need to start at home with our spouse, with our children and then with our co-workers. We need to ensure that the people working with us, for us, and even those who employ us, know that we love them. People are battling all around us. We need to give them lots of grace - undeserved loving kindness. Everytime I hear the word 'grace', I remember the man who wrote 'Amazing Grace.'

John Newton was the captain of a slave ship, and I don't think there was a more horrific occupation. the slaves would be abused and beaten, and it's believed that only one third loaded onto the sailing ships in Africa would actually reach their destination. Most died en route. When Newton was saved by Jesus Christ he realised what a wretched soul he was, and that's when he wrote: 'Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see." It's that grace that we need to extend to others.

If you find someone whose battled in life, they're often excellent teachers. Why? Because they understand what it's like to struggle, and that's where the love comes in. Through hardship you learn to be patient, and patience shows itself through love.
It's perfect love that will change our nation. It's not tolerance that will make a difference, it's when we really love each other that the Lord will step in and make the difference.
Jesus says that we must love one another and that love must be unconditional. We don't have to accept their actions, but we still need to love the person.

The magnetism of Christ pt 3

When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him,she fell at his feet and said, 'Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.' When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. "Where have you laid him?" he asked. 'Come and see, Lord,' they replied. Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, 'See how he loved him!' But some of them said, 'Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?'

Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. "Take away the stone," he said. 'But Lord,' said Martha, the sister of the dead man, 'by this time there is a bad odour, for he has been there four days.' Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?" So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me." When he had said this, jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go."

Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him.

The Five Family Values pt 3

Sexual Purity

Last Sunday, we looked at the fourth Family Value - Sexual Purity. The scriptures we focused on were Hebrews 13:4, Proverbs 5:15 - 23, Matthew 5:27 - 30, Genesis 2:24, 1 Corinthians 6:13 - 20 and Job 31:1.

Some pointers from the message:
  1. God made it very clear from His word about sexual purity.
  2. Stephen encouraged the church not to lose their moral compass.
  3. Older ladies talk to - train the younger ladies and older men, train the young men.
  4. Folk in the community seem to battle with the issue of self-respect.
  5. Sex was created by God and intended to be a joy and delight within marriage.
  6. We live in a sex-saturated era and we are bombarded with sexual images everywhere etc.
  7. Temptations will be there but it's how we handle it that matters.
  8. Stephen encouraged the folk to stand and having done that, to stand again.
  9. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.
  10. We would like to build strong marriages, strong families and strong communities.
  11. Steve then shared the story of David and Bathsheba. David was in the wrong place at the wrong time looking at the wrong person and he ended up doing the wrong thing! 
  12. Sow a thought, reap and action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.
  13. Although there are consequences to sin; God can and does forgive sexual sin.
This Sunday we will focus on the last of the Five Family Values which is Christ Centredness.

Holes dug for the toilets

 New Life for All Church in Magobeni - right next to Mablauwuni - have a piece of land and have decided to build 6 toilets. They have moulded 2000 bricks so far and have dug the 6 x 3m holes for the toilets. That is alot of work and sometimes, it goes slower than anticipated resulting in the church folk feeling tired and getting discouraged.

3 metres deep

The leaders of Crossroads decided to spur New Life for All church members on by volunteering to build up one of the toilets. Last Saturday, Stephen, Mbusiso and a group from Crossroads went to work on the toilets. It was a good catch up time for everyone on things happening in the community and in the church and how the church can be more relevant in the community. The men did well in building the toilet.

Mr Nyamayaro from New Life for All bringing water

It was a good time and the work/fellowship ended with a meal. The feedback Crossroads received was that New Life for All were so encouraged that they pledged to buy bags of cement and complete the other 5 toilets. It's great when we can encourage each other to love and good works.

Pornography in Mablauwuni Community

A few years ago, one would never have dreampt that pornography would be spoken about in rural Kezi, let alone be watched. Times are changing fast and the rural areas are picking things up from the city........the good, the bad and the ugly!
It has been interesting chatting to men and women of different ages in Mablauwuni community on pornography, including a community leader. It seems that pornography has escalated in the community 2 years ago when mobile phones were accessible to anyone and network coverage reached the rural areas.

Sexual activity is already high in the community and porn seems to have exacerbated the problem. The young adults said that people look at pornography in order to get sexually aroused and then put into practise what they have seen. Some young men said the trend is to see if the ‘feelings’ from looking at porn match up to the actual sexual act and visa versa.

Girls as young as 12 years and 13 years are already sexually active and some are getting pregnant at 12 years old. There has been a rise in women prostituting themselves for money and for popularity and this has also given rise to HIV/AIDS.

Who looks at/watches porn in Mablauwuni community? Is it only the young men? Both men and women are affected. Young people in primary schools are engrossed in watching pornography either on mobile phones, looking at magazines, DVD’s and/or, it is spoken about openly at the local beerhalls or ‘bottlestores’. Porn seems to be coming from the City of Kings – Bulawayo and brought back into the community where it spreads around quickly. The majority of the time, porn is looked at in ‘secret’.

What are the community leaders doing about it? Unfortunately, the community leaders are ‘far’ behind due to the generational gap. The community leaders are ‘older’ people who may not have access to mobile phones and if they do, they need to be taught how to use them. Some are actually ‘clueless’ when it comes to pornography and the effects on individuals or families. One community leader suggested that they have a meeting to get taught about the effects of pornography. They also suggested that the church speak about it in order to be relevant in the community. They felt that the Church too was left behind in this area.

Much work is to be done in the community and reaching people where they are at.

Spiritual Well-Being by Angus Buchan pt (v)

The importance of respect

Respect is a 'feeling of admiration for somebody or something because of their good qualities or achievements.' Proverbs 13:5 tells us: "A person with good sense is respected."
Respect can never be demanded. It has to be earned. Someone doesn't necessarily deserve respect because of their position. You may have to obey their instructions, but that doesn't mean you have to automatically respect them.
Respect comes from leading by example...................................................................................................

The problem today is that people demand respect because of the office they hold. They don't realise that people may say they respect you, but in their hearts despise you.
The people employed on your farm may be doing what you tell them to, but are you sure they respect you? Often, once you've earned their respect, those who used to only do the bare minimum of work, will now go the extra mile for you. But it takes time. You can't earn the respect of somebody in a day, a month or even a year - it takes a lifetime.

Respect is also not about making huge amounts of money. It's about lifestyle.

My dear friends, we need to imitate our Lord Jesus Christ..................................................................

In Matthew 16:24, we're told: "Unless we deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow Him daily we cannot be His disciples."

The bottom line is, if we want people to respect us, we need to put other people first in our lives and look after their well-being. Then they'll respect and honour us.

Book Review: 'God Meant It For Good' by R.T. Kendall

I'm going through the book 'God Meant It For Good' by R.T. Kendall and it's all about Joseph. Many of us have read the life of Joseph time and time again. Joseph is one of my heroes in the Bible and I'm sure many of us have identified with Joseph at some stage in our lives.

If you are going through trials, have been falsely accused or had your dreams shattered and faced disappointment, then this book is one that will certainly do you good - a 'must read'. It helps bring clarity and understanding to what may be going on in your life. Once you start reading it, you won't want to stop. It is riveting!

Nuggets from the book will follow........

Snapshot of 'Foundations for Nations'

Four Foundations are on the go and it was good to hear in short, what was happening with each Foundation:

Brian Oldreive

1. Foundations for Farming - Brian Oldreive: Brian said they went through a testing time and the team have come through. They are teaching the love of farming and it is going well amongst the poor. Foundations for farming is in 28 countries and different continents. People are seeing a hope for the poor as seen in Isaiah 58. The poor will get poorer and Jesus heart is to preach good news to the poor. Are you making a plan for the poor. the great news is that Foundations for Farming has been accepted by the Ministry of Education in Zimbabwe and will be taught in 8,500 schools and approximately 3 million children.

Lynne Knight

2. Foundations for Family - Lynne knight: Foundations for family is in 40 churches and they have Family champions. it has been translated into 3 languages so far - English, French and Portuguese. there are 5 family values, these being: Everyone in family, Committed Couples, Valued Children, Sexual Purity and Christ Centredness. Pornography is a growing fast in both rural and urban areas and Foundations for family would like to bring strength to family units.

Tapiwa Chizana

3. Foundations for Finance - Tapiwa Chizana: From Matthew 6, you will see that we cannot serve both God and money. people are worshipping money and not God. They spend much time worrying. Foundations for Finance is a work in progress at the moment.

Margie Holland

4. Foundations for Health - Margie Holland: When laying foundations, the bigger the building, the deeper the foundations. The Health strategy is community health evangelism, discipleship and church planting with community health and development. It is a holistic ministry of body, soul and spirit.
