DAY 3 – 2014 Zimbabwe International Convention


Finally blogging about the final day of the 2014 Zimbabwe International Convention. Another day of upbuilding, encouraging, associating and learning with brothers and sisters we hope to see again one day. We were wowed again as we heard the morning attendance was 78,714. A DVD was released that was translated in Shona showing how a father, at first, struggled but succeeded in caring for the spiritual matters of his family. Vaughn and I found out later that our hospitality overseer’s wife was a voice on that Shona translated video.

There was also the release of the front and back parts of the revised NWT in the Shona language. In line with Matthew 6:33, “all these other things” were added for the Shona to benefit from as they continue “seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness”. During the final discourse, all of the missionaries present at the convention gathered to one area on the stadium’s field. After the day’s session was over, many Zimbabweans continued singing a cappella. Such a beautiful harmonious sound.


  • Zimbabwe Sign Language – 744
  • Ndebele – 4,305
  • English – 14,497
  • Shona – 62,863

TOTAL : 82,409

Later, in the evening, Vaughn and I enjoyed hospitality of dinner, games and convo at a couple’s home until 1:30 a.m. Good times!
