In April 2005, Team Africa, composed of 12 WCC members and Missionary Dereck Mushayamunda, visited the Mushayamunda Village in Zimbabwe, Africa. Our team saw the needs at the village and a small group was formed to move forward on projects to meet needs for the villagers and their local congregation.

Through WCC and several other churches, four wells have been drilled, drip irrigation systems have been installed, vegetables are being grown to feed families, bicycles have been purchased to allow ministers to get to various villages, school supplies have been supplied, Bibles have been provided to new Christians, songbooks have been purchased for the congregation, a roof has been placed over a structure for the congregation to meet, nutritious drink has been provided to families for their children, corn meal has been donated to families to sustain them, manually operated sewing machines have been donated for use by the villagers, plows have been purchased to assist in farming, shoes have been given – all of this in the Name of Jesus.

One of the greatest, on-going needs in the village is medical supplies. With every visit to the village, we stock our duffel bags with analgesics, antibiotics, bandages, etc. – donated by the WCC family – to help relieve pain and bring comfort to the villagers.
