Greetings to all in the joy of following Christ!

He is the pastor of the oldest Presbyterian church in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He meets in open fields with small groups who gather to hear God’s message of love and salvation. He is the Chaplain of the David Livingstone Secondary School and the founder and driving force of the mission driven project known as the Escandieni Sothando, meaning “IN THE HANDS OF LOVE”. Rev. Moyo is a graduate of the United Theological College in Harare. In 2010 he graduated from the University of Pretoria with a B.A. Honors in Practical Theology in Pastoral Counseling, and a Masters in Practical Theology in Pastoral Narrative and Family Therapy. Nhlanganiso is 35 years old and married. He and his wife Beauty have two children, Nonlanhia (Alice) age 5 and Nhlanhla (George) age 2. Rev. Moyo is a guest of George Boone a missionary and member of the United Methodist Church in Manchester Michigan. You may have noticed that they attended a recent ‘Share the Warmth’ meeting, pictured in the September 20th issue of the Daily Telegram. Please join us to wish him farewell as he is returning to Zimbabwe on October 8. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the last memory he had of the U.S. was a group of Presbyterian brothers and sister on the other side of the globe? Free will donations will be accepted.
