Joy and Sorrow

This month, congratulations and condolences are in order for the HOPE families. I was pleased to find out we have our first HOPE graduate! Samuel Dzahana passed Form 6 (12th grade) with all A’s and B’s. He is eligible to attend a university in Zimbabwe. We want to help our children advance as far as they are able to in school. If you or your church/group would be interested in assisting with Samuel’s fees for university, please contact me.

On a sad note, two of the children on our feeding program passed away this month, Tuweje and Christopher. Please be in prayer for both of their families.
The school children have all started back for second term. Although we had to reduce the number of children when fees were increased at the beginning of the year, we have been able to increase again to 66 children in our education program thanks to 17 new sponsors!

I am hoping to move back to Zimbabwe the first of September. This will depend on approval from the CornerStone board when they meet in July. I have also been working for the last two years on a book called Dare to Love Completely about my journey with the men, women, and children of Zimbabwe. It is currently being edited and should be available around September. I will let you know when I have more details! Hope everyone is having a wonderful month!
