Zimbabwe/Ukama Partnership


          Several years ago UCC New Hampshire began to introduce NH Churches to individual churches in Zimbabwe. This was not about the mission of sending aide, but a people to people effort to form what is called by the Shona word "Ukama" or  friendship.  These "sister churches" now have formed strong bonds, with regular visits occurring when the political realities allow.
       The next Ukama trip is planned for August 2010. Through Memory Matuvhunye and Daizy Thebedhe, two recent visitors from Zimbabwe, UCCZ has extended a formal invitation to UCC New Hampshire to attend the 2010 Ruwadzano (Women's Fellowship) Annual Meeting.
        Fifteen people from seven churches, and the pastors of Brookside Church in Manchester and Brentwood/Kingston will travel to Zimbabwe from August 9 to 26, 2010.  The group includes a man whose father was a physician at Mt. Selinda Hospital (one of the UCCZ supported hospitals in Zimbabwe) in the early 1960's.  He left Mt. Selinda at age 6 when his father and sister died of polio there, and this will be his first trip back.  He plans to serve as a liaison between the UCCZ churches around Mt. Selinda and their NH partners.
