Tensions continue to run high in Zimbabwe following the election almost two weeks ago. A few days ago farms started to get raided once again. I belong to an online group and someone living on a farm in Zimbabwe wrote asking for prayer this morning:
“hi, well today was our day and time for trouble, I was honestly thinking
that we wouldn’t be hit by all the trouble, but at One this afternoon about
20 “men” pitched up telling us our time was up and we had to pack our bags
and leave immediately . We called the police – took them till three o clock
to come out on a quad bike …………. they were quite a vocal bunch and
we didn’t unlock gate no matter how they told us we had to in order to
I locked my self in the house with the kids, and my mother in law came over
once or twice to see if everything was OK our end of the garden .
Today of all days, we are the ONLY farm without power – makes you wonder,
The power went off at 7am and then we have trouble at 1pm
…………………. definitely planned I think
Well so far we are OK.
Please keep us in your prayers during this time …”
Please remember Zimbabwe in your prayers. In particular pray that there is a good outcome from these elections – once the result is finally known. It would be so wonderful to see this precious country turned around from the ruin it is currently in. Also pray for the regional summit, held tomorrow, which Zambia has called to discuss Zimbabwe. Unfortunately it looks like Mugabe won’t be attending.
