Zimbabwe: An Amazing Trip

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

We had an amazing experience during our recent visit to Zimbabwe. We are receiving so many stories of lives that have been forever changed by the events that took place on this trip. God moved in a way that only He can do, and the miracles we were able to witness were absolutely incredible.

Over the course of our one week clinic, our medical missions team saw a total of 3,227 medical and dental patients. 207 teeth were extracted and 1,927 dedicated their lives to Jesus. Patients not only received physical healings through the medical team but also through prayer, as each person was prayed for individually. An amazing move of God took place and blind people literally had their sight restored and deaf people were able to hear for the very first time.

In addition to our medical outreach, we had the opportunity to share the love of Jesus to thousands of prisoners in over 40 prisons in Zimbabwe. In fact, our prison team achieved a major milestone by distributing the 2 millionth hygiene gift bag. We were also able to spend some time at one of our feeding centers that distributes food and educates children on a daily basis. We ended the trip with a phenomenal festival that drew well over 400,000 people during the 3 days of meetings. Thank you partners for helping us bless the people of Zimbabwe. We truly believe we were able to bring hope and the love of Christ to this nation and it will never be the same…and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
