Equipping Teachers at Karanda Mission in Zimbabwe

Karanda graduation

Karanda Mission Hospital was established in Zimbabwe by The Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) in 1961. A nursing and midwifery school were later added to train nationals to provide medical care for their own people. People come from all corners of Zimbabwe—and even neighboring nations like Mozambique—to receive healthcare there. In addition to its hospital, Karanda Mission also spreads the gospel through its school ministry.

Karanda Mission Primary School serves many families in the surrounding community by providing a quality education to children in grades 1-7. The school integrates Zimbabwean national curriculum with biblical teaching and a Christian worldview. While the school employs qualified and experienced teachers, they realized that many of these teachers were not equipped to teach Scripture accurately and effectively.

The mission partnered with Global Action this year in order to mobilize teachers like Fiona to impact their students’ lives with the gospel. A fourth grade teacher with a heart for her students, Fiona was deeply touched by what she learned. She caught the vision for sharing the Good News with those around her, and now she has become a messenger of the gospel. She says with a big smile on her face, “My learners are the community which I serve…I point them to Christ as the only Savior.”

Now, Fiona is equipped to serve her student community well. She and her classmates at Karanda Mission graduated from our program a few weeks ago (picture above), and now they are teaching with confidence. With a strong foundation in Scripture and a missional perspective, their influence on the next generation will bear fruit for years to come.
