4th Harare, Zimbabwe celebrates 2nd Anniversary
Published on April 4, 2017
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am thankful for 2 years of GB ministry in Hatfield, Harare. My name is Captain Isabel Macaullay I grew up in GB from the ages of 6 to 13 years when our company closed down and that was it! Only when I turned 37 years I realised that something was missing in the lives of my daughter and two beloved nieces. Upon much reflection and thought I discovered that the missing link was GB. I recalled how much I learnt from GB, the fun we had and the fellowship that we shared.
I searched for GB on the internet and was led to Mrs. P. Penny IVP Africa and Mrs. B. Laurence Zimbabwe National President. I began attending leaders training and meetings. I struggled to begin the work but a year later I re-opened the Company I attended during my early years at the Presbyterian Church.
We held our first lesson on 6 February 2015 with 2 girls. We thank the Lord for growth, within two years we have had 18 girls and 1 officer added to our number. Our girls enjoy the lessons, the journey has been truly amazing. Parents have been very supportive and are pleased with the positive impact the GB programme has had on their daughters.
Our girls were so excited as we went through the Be Courageous International Focus 2016 resource. They became aware that they are part of an International organisation and something much bigger than they ever imagined! Our explorers loved to hear Margret Lyttle’s story. Our Juniors discovered that while we are different there are so many things that unite us such as our GB crest and our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We celebrated this occasion on 10 February.
