It is great to welcome Andrew, Jacob and David, three of the full-time elders from River of Life Church in Harare, to King’s this week. Their visit is a further development in the ongoing partnership between our two churches. They are spending their time meeting up with King’s staff members, the eldership and the Zimbabwe Partnership Team, before returning to Zimbabwe later this week. On Sunday, the guys will travel around our different Sunday meetings and sites. Do welcome them if you see them.
Two members of King’s, Fay Thompson and Yvonne Steel, have recently returned from a trip to Zimbabwe. While there, Fay and Yvonne, both former headteachers, led a conference for teachers involved in education projects linked to River of Life and other DNA churches – it is great to hear that this went extremely well. They also spent time in Harare talking with project leaders about more ways we can be involved in supporting education in the future. It is very exciting to be able to share resources and expertise in this way.
This is all excellent preparation for Scott Marques’ visit to us in April. On the morning of Saturday 14th April, Scott will be speaking on the subject of ‘Kingdom Investment’. As well as leading River of Life Church and the DNA family of churches, Scott is also a successful business entrepreneur and leader, running several farming businesses in Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The morning seminar will be a great opportunity to hear his story and catch his passion for finding Kingdom opportunities in every area of our lives. There will be an interview with Scott, then a talk from him, followed by Q and A. This is definitely a date to put in your diary!
I am also thrilled to tell you that Scott will be preaching at all our meetings on Sunday 15th April.
