Harassment at the Border
After arriving early at the Zimbabwe border, we spent six hours trying to clear all the goods which we were carrying. The border officials were, as always, a law unto themselves. There was just no way around paying duties even on the free literature as well as the Boxes with Love relief aid!
At around two o'clock we were finally free from the border and proceeded into Zimbabwe. This was also one of two of the hottest days since 1962. We safely arrived at our first venue later that evening.
We then started our ministry without delay. We met up with the pastor and he set up a meeting with local pastors and chaplains. We were blessed to be able to speak to them about issues regarding the Reformation. This included a brief overview of the Reformation (as we assumed no one knew anything about the Reformation), why we need Reformation in our Churches as well as some practical steps that could be taken to Reform our Churches totally.
