The Kairos course has helped us (as a church) to deepen the missions interest of our members. The interactive nature of the course provides many opportunities to guide and bring understanding on many mission issues.

Every local church should use this tool in preparing itself for active missions

We run the course twice each year. It is a great tool to inspire, motivate and equip teams to reach out to the nations.

Once known as the ‘breadbasket of Africa’, the resource-rich country of Zimbabwe has known more than its share of hardships over the past few decades. Colonialism was followed by a genocide that resulted in the murder of more than half a million people. Today, under a dictatorial leadership that has ravaged the country’s economy, ordinary Zimbabweans struggle to make a living. Despite many challenges, Kairos has taken root in Zimbabwe.
A number of Kairos courses were conducted beginning in 2010 until a Kairos Zimbabwean facilitation team was formed. Today, a fledgling National Coordination Team, led by the Chiotas, exists. They comprise of an exceptionally committed team of around 15 passionate facilitators.
Once a month, the team members fast for a day for Kairos and then break it during their regular meeting together. During their time together, the team members pray, review chapter introductions, watch tutorial videos, read chapters and discuss what they’ve learnt together. Their course planning times see them discussing individual roles and responsibilities in detail, from who’ll be cooking for the team and participants to who’ll be taking care of administration, providing prayer support, and so on.
The team’s commitment to funding the way for Kairos to spread throughout the nation is particularly commendable. Twice a year, each team member pays a $10 subscription fee, over and above the $1 monthly fee that is used for administrative and other expenses.
When the team is getting ready to run Kairos in another location, as it did in Vic Falls in April, the members spend months saving for their $30 transport fee. Those who are unable to make the trip donate money to assist those who are going, along with gifts of oil, maize, sugar, rice, vegetables, tea and milk to sustain them while they’re away.
The team has a vision of reaching further afield in 2013, targeting towns such as Binga and Hwange, followed by more rural areas. Please pray with them as they work to enable Kairos to expand in this country, in a bid to awaken the Zimbabwean church to fulfill its missions call.
A VISION OF FLAMES OVER THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE: MOSSEL BAY
A recent Kairos course held in Mossel Bay confirmed several visions and prophetic words that God has given in recent years. Here’s an extract from what HF Debbie Bredenkamp wrote following the course: “There was a real expectancy and excitement among the delegates. This was further encouraged when I shared a vision that our Lord had given me a few weeks prior to the course. I saw great flames of anointing on a neat little building in a rural area that I soon recognised as the school house where we ran the course. Fred Berrington, who runs the YWAM School of Frontier Missions where the course was held, was in agreement with this vision. He strongly believes that the Lord has been showing him that He has great plans for that part of the world and that many missionaries will be launched from Friemersheim (near Mossel Bay) to the rest of Africa. Fred has been called back from the field to mobilise the church and sees Kairos as the perfect tool to do this.”
