THREE MOTORBIKES BOUGHT FOR GFMI!


LIFE OF GLORY MOTORBIKE LAUNCHED IN GWERU
 Praise God so much for the break through he has given us as a ministry. It’s been two years now, but our ministry is going strong with more doors of church planting and leadership development being opened.
I and the entire GFMI expresses our joy for the motorbikes we have bought for the work of God through a partnership with Kelly & Denise Newsome of Wood Ridge Baptist Church, the Christian Motorcycles Association and Missionary Ventures!
We bought three TF125 Suzuki motorbikes for our pastors. It is a vision that has come true. On the 16th of October we launched the Gweru district motorbike which Pastor Tapiwa Shumba shall be using in his day to day Ministry. Our invited guest speaker Apostle Kapofu of UAFC officially launched and prayed for the motorbike during our church service. It was indeed a day of celebration at Life of Glory Center.
