With Hlulani Chauke
Hlulani Chauke originally comes from Masvingo, Zimbabwe. She served at Ebenezer Training Centre for 6 months last year before moving to Nagoya, Japan. It was excellent seeing Hlulani again and learning about the Japanese culture/society as well as Gracecity Church that is led by Tom and Julie Eaton. This is what she said:
M.M: In a nutshell, how would you describe Gracecity Church in Nagoya?

M.M: What are your first thoughts on returning to visit Ebenezer?
H.C: I am amazed at what is happening at Ebenezer – the buildings, the new irrigation system, the graduates have really grown and matured. I’m amazed at the perseverance that people have. Keep going. It builds character.
