Prayer Focus: ZIMBABWE

The Lemba, a tribe of 70,000 to 80,000 members who live in central Zimbabwe and northern South Africa, have Jewish origins. Recently, over 140 Lemba leaders have been trained by the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute that works with Jewish Voice (Rabbi Jonathan Bernis’ ministry), and nearly 100 Messianic congregations have been established in five years.

  • Pray for the Lord to bless and extend ministry to these Jewish believers and for increased contact with DPM so they can receive Derek’s teaching

Outreach Story – South Africa

Hope Ramaphosa arranged for the recent distribution of 79 “Israel” gift packs to about 200 Lemba leaders (27 are pastors) from Venda and Limpopo Provinces. Her pastor opened his large church for this event, attended by South Africa Director, Isabel, and her brother, Andrew, who drove five hours to be there. 
A door opened recently to share Derek’s teaching on Israel with a Rabbi from Johannesburg. He is very impressed and wants to help share it across South Africa.

“Thank you kindly for this most amazing gift. I managed to read and watch some of the content and it fills me with so much joy that we have friends who are articulating why Christians and Jews need to unite in protection of their shared identity in God and rightful inheritance. We will be making use of these videos in training communities against replacement theology using powerful Scriptures and prophecies. I would like an opportunity to meet with the leaders of DPM to learn how you are reaching churches to offer these educational tools.”
