Anglican Church in Zimbabwe
in Legal Battle with Former Bishop


Dear Friends 


Thank you for your continued prayers for the legal struggle for the Anglican Church in Zimbabwe.  Here is an update from Bishop Chad of Harare regarding the latest:


"Dear friends,

Warm greetings from very hot Harare! I want to thank you all very much for your prayers. Our Supreme Court hearing took place this morning from 9.30 to close to 13.00hrs and finished all the matters. Most of the Kunonga appeals including that of Manicaland were thrown out. So for Manicaland we go back to Justice Bhunu's judgement which was in our favour (congratulations to bishop Julius!). The Harare matter was heard and the judges reserved judgement. They will notify us in due course (within 3 months I am told) their judgement. I am very pleased that its over so quickly. It went very well and we are happy the way it went. This does not mean you stop praying _ please continue to pray as the judges write down their judgement. The end is in sight now -Praise God! Please share with friends." 

He has explained that his own appeal against findings in favour of Kunonga went well and that the decision and the full judgment have been reserved.  Thank you for your support, and please continue praying as Bishop Chad requests.  

Please continue to pray with us for peace in Zimbabwe, that true justice will be granted through the three pending cases, and for any reconciliation that is needed.  Pray also for the faith of those believers who are being persecuted that they would maintain a Godly witness in every circumstance. 


May the Lord bless and keep you in His perfect. . .


Grace and Peace,
