Over the last year, many prophecies were given about 2020 being the year of
fulfilled promises. We in Arise pray that this will be your experience.
For many years, you have joined us in praying for God's purpose to be realised
in Barbados, without knowing what that would look like. Then, in 2018, God
started to reveal to us the idea of a memorial stone which was expanded into
the Circle of Remembrance at St Margaret's Church. Knowing it was God's
heart to heal this deep wound, we made a commitment to do this work. Now
it's 2020 and the year for this to be fulfilled. On 20th May 2020, there will be a
service when the memorial will be dedicated by Bishop Maxwell.
We are so thankful to everyone who has sown into this project so far, however
there is a way to go yet. We have been quoted for the work in Barbados and
the stone has been commissioned in Ireland and will be shipped over, the
same as the people were. All this needs financing and this is the first time in
22 years we have asked for funding. We have raised £8,048 so far.
So how can you help?
1) Pray. We are in no doubt it's God's will, but we also believe it is
important to give everyone the opportunity to sow into this healing so
that the Poor White descendants know they are not forgotten.
2) Spread the word, which hopefully will create opportunities for me to
come and share the story, particularly in Ireland and Scotland.
3) Fundraising and/or encouraging people to donate through
We trust our Heavenly Father to guide us as we continue this journey together.
It's a privilege to do this work for Him and we give Him all the glory!
Abundant blessings in Christ for 2020.

How often have we seen this headline over the past three decades? We had hoped that with the change of leadership, the situation for Zimbabweans might have improved. However, this has proven not to be the case. It seems that the economy has gone beyond repair. There is no health system for ordinary Zimbabweans and hospitals are deserted, with no medication. Doctors have been on strike for...
