Advancer Graduation

Mr Ndlovu - Community leader

Last Wednesday 9 Advancers graduated at Ebenezer. The graduation started at 10:00am and finished after lunch at 2:00pm. There were approximately 40 people who attended including the Community leaders from Mablauwuni and Magobeni areas - Mr Morris Ndlovu, Mrs Sibanda and the headmaster of Nduna Primary School - Mr Mpofu. The guest of honour was Gerald Mangena - a former staff member of Ebenezer.

Advancers Graduating


Gerald Mangena
Gerry gave an encouraging speech to the Advancers about a Bow and Arrow: the gist of the speech was that God was the bow and the Advancers were the arrows who have been sharpened during their time at Ebenezer. They were now going to be released - "shot" into the community as they go and impact the various communities they'll be working in.

Each Advancer received a plate, a cup and pot from Kango group of companies as well as a puncture repair kit from Racing Snakes. A former Advancer, who left the programme early to become a model farmer in Mabaluwuni doing tomatoes, onions and chickens, was also present - Justin Thebe. He received 2 bags of cement.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the graduation and some of the "former" Advancers will be going on to join Beyond Belief.

We wish them well as they begin a new chapter in their lives.....
