They have been faithfully serving the Lord in Zimbabwe for 56 years!  The work has grown over the years and there are now about 50 congregations scattered throughout the country in four different language groups.  Their work is centered in the Capital City, Harare, and at Rockwood, the Bible Camp about 15 miles outside of Harare.  There are about 11 congregations in Harare itself.

Among the ministries include Preaching & Teaching the Word of God; Church Planting; Building; Youth Camp work; Writing & Printing of Tracts; Study Materials in over 5 different languages; Song Books; and Bible Distribution. 

Bro. Garrett also brought the Sunday morning message from Genesis 3:21 where “God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.”  If your church hasn’t had Bro. & Sis.

That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
