Zimbabwe – June 2011 Update
Approximately 1,000,000 servings of protein packed vegetable soup were loaded for Logos Rhema Trust on June 29, 2011. These meals will be distributed through churches, orphanages, Christian schools and feeding stations in Harare, Chiota, Shurugioi, Mtoko, Mrewa, Matebelland, Warren Park D, and Chibvumba. Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the first and foremost objective for Logos Rhema Trust as they distribute food to their nation that has been rocked by super inflation. Buying a loaf of bread costs one day’s wages for most poor people. Many parents have died from AIDS, cholera, malaria and TB resulting in the children running the streets looking for food. The orphanages do not have enough beds or food to take in large groups of children. So when the kids find out there is food at the feeding stations they come to eat. Logos Rhema Trust feeds them until the food is gone for that day. It is the only meal some children receive that day. This soup is bringing hope in a time of great need and despair.
