Reconnection in Zimbabwe

mike-zim-1In November 2014 Mike Young was traveling with a Salt and Light team lead by Dave Richards in Zimbabwe.  While there through unexpected circumstances he crossed paths with some local leaders that he worked with many years ago but had lost touch.  Out of that unexpected encounter Mike and Travis Koeman  were able to take a recent trip to connect with some of the leaders and churches they had lost touch with.  Here is Mike’s account of the trip.

Travis and I were there for 2 weeks and both of us were very blessed at the level of faith the people were living in, and the deep sense of family everywhere we went in Faith Ministries.
We had the privilege of speaking in several schools and one university. We also both spoke at separate churches on the Sunday am services. We drove around to many of the Harare churches as well as some of the outlying churches. We also spent a couple days up in the Chinhoyi area. We met with all the leaders in the 4 Zones doing leaders meetings in each area. 
mike-zim-3At one school about 45 students gave their lives to Christ. We were able to speak to the students as well as the staff at all of these schools. One school had over 2000 students!
My highpoint would be speaking out in the bush (thatch roof and walls) to a group and about 30 people came forward for salvation.   It was a great trip all the way around and Oh yah, we also got to play with a lion cub.

Sending to Plant in Billings, Montana

One thing Jesus clearly did while on earth, and continues to do today is join His people together in family relationships as they engaged in His mission to the earth.   In Matthew 9-11 and Luke 9-10 we see examples of how Jesus sent out the Twelve and the Seventy on mission.  They went out in pairs […]

Neighborhood Outreaches in Wyoming Michigan

I remember reading an article referencing a thought from the mayor of a Midwestern city.  The majority of the issues that our community is facing would be illuminated or drastically reduced if we could just figure out how to become a community of great neighbors. Relationships are more effective than programs because they are organic and […]

Finding Family Among C2C

Our motto for both Salt and Light and our C2C family is “God’s family together on God’s mission.”  Family is the foundation and launching pad for all we do.  In Jesus’ last prayer on earth (John 17) He prayed three times that His people would walk with, and in the same family life of the […]

Great Example of Missions and Evangelism that is Everyone, Everywhere, All the Time

Our motto which encompasses God’s design for His people is “God’s family together on God’s mission.”  We are to be a missionary family!  Both before and after Jesus rose from the dead He reveals this in our commission to be sent into the world (Joh 17:18, Joh 20:21).  Missions and evangelism isn’t a program or area of […]
