The purpose of this outreach is to take the light of the Gospel to this rural community of Mkushi and allow God to transform their lives, help them abandon ancestral practices and allow them to find the Saviour.

You will be involved in evangelism from village to village and ministering to people of all ages. It is a chance to speak to people who have put their hopes in unhealthy traditional practices instead of God.

This outreach will include general evangelism in the villages, youth ministry, sports, showing the Jesus film, practical work where necessary and school visits. In some places, the team will have to walk distances so we advise you to bring water bottles, sunscreen, and closed shoes.
