(Zimbabwe)–Topping the news, there are more than six million people are in need of food in Zimbabwe. As aid agencies move to help the people survive the worst food shortage in 50 years, violent unrest is breaking out. Bible Pathway Ministries’ Karen Hawkins says they’re concerned. “The pastor we work with very closely there set up two feeding programs. But his church is just overwhelmed, because many of its members have been run off their farms, and they now, are in need of the food. Government crackdowns have made the farmers leave crops in the field to rot, so they’re asking for prayer.” Hawkins says the church is still giving food, but they’re running out of money, adding that this is their ministry. “This is an active church, and they have been doing this for a long time. They have been going into the community and helping; they have gone into Mozambique when they were flooded. Everything they give, they give in the name of Christ, and they share the Gospel.”
