Lance and Christina describe themselves as “Zimbabwean peace warriors.” Working with the Trees of Peace ministry in Zimbabwe, they conduct trainings in conflict transformation across Africa utilizing experiential learning methodologies which they learned from their mentors, Dan and Sharon Buttry, IM global servants in peace and justice. In addition to their primary work of peace building and conflict transformation, the Muteyos develop leaders in a ministry of training and capacity building and oversee sustainable economic development projects. Lance and Christina share, “It is our belief that peace, justice, truth and mercy are ingredients for sustainable peace building.” They serve with IM as International Associate Global Servants.
They write – We implore you to pray with us for Zimbabwe during this time of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Staying at home and self-isolating brings its own difficulties, as it results in no money, no food, no water and no job. But toiling outside means working in jam-packed, crowded markets and standing in long lines every day to purchase food or fuel. It’s a dilemma! Many are opting to fend for their families and work outside, putting themselves and their families at great risk. For millions of impoverished Zimbabweans, there is no choice.
Our souls are mourning,
We need more of you Jesus Christ.
We can’t cope.
Lord have mercy in the face of impending danger.
Please, join us in praying for Zimbabweans, even as you pray for your own country and family.
