ZIMBABWE 1996-1997
During 1996 and 1997 Philadelphia's activities in Zimbabwe included several evangelism outreaches, local crusades and a number of leadership seminars. However, the breakthrough in this period was starting the fulltime Leadership Training Program, using Timothy Institute's 3-year Licentiate Course as basic syllabus. Unfortunately, once again hardly any photographs of these events seems to have survived.

Apart from showing the Jesus-film and doing door-to-door evangelism, the team brought a large donation of blankets and shirts which were given to people in need. Here Manie (left) and Eswill Magaronga (right) looks on as Henrietta Stander does the ceremonial handover to Norman. (June 1996)
