September 2013 newsletter

The September newsletter is now available.

There are wonderful stories from some of the young people at the Home. Do take a look when you get a moment. It is wonderful to see what a difference you are making in the lives of these children and young people. Please also take note of the lovely feedback from Rev Margaret Mawire…

“We are grateful to FoMRCH for making our life easier. You may be interested to know that you are our only consistent partner. May you all be blessed abundantly for the wonderful work you are doing for the children of Zimbabwe.”

My name is Tapiwa S

My name is Tapiwa S born in Epworth in 1992, I came from a small impoverished family which was surviving under difficult conditions. I stayed with my single mom who passed away when I was 6. I never knew my father. When my mother died, my 7 siblings and myself had to look after ourselves. My 18 year old brother strived to take care of all of us. It was difficult. MRCH came to our rescue and gave us relief from the hardships that we were facing. Through their support, I managed to attend school, have food in my stomach, clothing and my ailing health was taken care of.  I did very well in my primary education and MRCH continued to pay for my secondary education. I passed my  GCE ‘’O’’ level examinations and because my results were outstanding MRCH enrolled me in boarding school for my Advanced level. Again I excelled. Today, I  am studying an Honours degree in Marketing Management. This is all as a result of the support of MRCH. I thank them and all the supporters of MRCH for they have enabled hopeless situations to turn into testimonies. Today, I can look forward to a great future. I thank God for His grace and my life because I have been abundantly blessed.

My name is Lucky M

My name is Lucky M, youngest in a family of three.  I am 19. I am currently doing Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Geography in form 6 at Moleli High School. I want to be a doctor.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Matthew Rusike Children’s Home for being a home full of love and care exhibited by its staff. I moved into the Home in the year 2005 as a result of being homeless after my mother had failed to take care of the family. We lived in extreme poverty and the environment was not conducive for our social well being. However, my story changed when I started in the caring arms of MRCH.

Currently, due to the exposure I gained because of the Home, I am honoured to be the incoming National Youth President of the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe. I am also a member of the Junior Parliament of Zimbabwe as an Hon. Minister of Information, Media and Publicity. My school life is coloured by high stars of endeavours. In the year 2007 I attained 4 units at Grade 7 and in 2011 I attained 8 As, 3Bs at ‘’O’’ level. I am a senior prefect at my school. My hobbies are interacting with people from various walks of life.

Today, where I am, I count it all grace and only grace answereth for all the excellency in me. My vision is to impart and influence a mindset of greatness to the young in the world who are under threat of moral decadence.
