Global Missions- Zimbabwe Volunteers in Mission

19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. Look, I myself will be with you every day until the end of this present age.” Matthew 28:19-20 CEB


Zim Vim stands for “Zimbabwe Volunteers in Mission.” For 25 years, Community UMC has nurtured a relationship with the country of Zimbabwe and in the last few years, focused our efforts on a village called Hanwa. We have assisted in building schools, providing electricity and clean water, and improving health clinics. Most importantly, we have established lasting relationships with the Zimbabweans by visiting their village approximately every other year. If you have an interest in this wonderful ministry please contact our team leader, Charlie Moore.

Hanwa Mission Update - April 2022

Zim Vim is in its 25th year of mission work in Zimbabwe. Our Zim Vim 2022 team will travel to The Hanwa Mission School in late July to assist in the completion of a $140,000 “Mega Classroom Block”. This Primary School building is the length of a football field and will house six large classrooms, a library and a testing center. We will also introduce a Kindle E-reader Program to the Primary School students. In addition to our ongoing construction projects of churches, schools, and health clinics, we will make home visits to HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis patients, and give nutritious meals to the Orphan Trust that we support. 

The Zim Vim 2022 Team: Erik Alsgaard, Sheila George, Barbara Julian, Jennie Higgs, Ed Kansler, Charlie Moore, Pastor Jerome Jones, Larraine Jones, Jim Gourley, Sue McCann, Al Leslie, Mark Chapin, Michelle Cardwell, Rebecca Cardwell, Esther Andrews
