Zion Harvest Mission

PROGRESS REPORT JUNE – DECEMBER 2009

 
As we come to the end of the year 2009 may I take this opportunity to thank our donor partners from both England and Finland. During this second half of the year our donors from England gave us a total of ksh.750, 000.00 which was divided equally amongst the five regions. Our donors from Finland have continued to support ZHM with a monthly contribution of 1,000 Euros which translates to kshs.140, 000.00. This funding is divided amongst the five regions but depending on the number of church per region. On a sad note, may I report to you that during this reporting ZHM witnessed the death of Bishop Nashon Odida and our donors came to our support in a special way and we thank God for this.
 

Regional reports

 

Central region:
The region got a total of ksh.150,000.00. This money was divided amongst the three districts, that is, Nairobi, Mombasa and Thika.
 
a) Nairobi district: the district continued with the project of building the latrine in the church compound and saving some money for the final renovation of the Kibera church.
 
b) Thika district: the district committee decided to spend the money in the general repair of Joseph’s car. The car is now in good condition and is helping Joseph in moving from church to church and this has led to opening of more churches.
 
c) Mombasa region: the district continued with the project of buying of the chairs and on spiritual formation. The districts have opened another church.

Eastern region:

 
The region identifies the construction of the regional headquarters and all the resource have been spent on this.
 
Two issues have remained a challenge for the year 2010:
1. Constitution amendment: The church has been run by four constitutions but we are looking forward to have one document.
2. Spiritual formation: We are planning to have seminars and open airs in all the five regions.

 

May God bless you.
