Ndina's father tells her story:
Almost fifteen years ago now, my wife and I together with our daughter Ndina (four years old then) packed our luggage from California headed for Zimbabwe, Africa. It was after Ndina's daddy, now serving President of Zimbabwe Christian College had completed his first degree studies with Hope International University. As the couple returned to a country whose economy was drastically going down with no signs of recovery, one thing was certain: God had some work to be done in Zimbabwe. Father and mother both knew that remaining in the US would have been good for Ndina, who had already started kindergarten and could communicate very well in English. As a toddler, Ndina moved back with her parents where they went straight into ministry at Zimbabwe Christian College, as well as in Zengeza where the family is preaching. God remained gracious to the family as Ndina remained in school through the years. She was not able to attend the best schools in the country and has always been a hard working, focused young girl. One thing that she learned early in life was the secret of contentment and reliance on prayer. One day she asked her dad if he would help her go to study at an American Christian University. The dad at that point replied, "Wait until you complete your high school. Work hard and don't think about that right now." Two years ago, Ndina, now 19, worked hard and came out the best student at her high school. With a lot of excitement, she approached her parents and asked if attending university at an American Christian University would be a possible option. Her dad asked why she desired so much to study at a Christian University and her reply was that she wanted to serve others and she knew that a Christian University would prepare her to do that. This request got straight into the heart of both father and mother who stated praying so God would open doors for their daughter to serve. Since Ndina had already demonstrated her passion at church and in the community, the parents had no doubt God would guide her through her passionate desire to serve.
What started as a move of faith to apply to Kentucky Christian University has now become substance as Ndina was officially accepted to begin her studies in August 2017. The visa application process went smoothly. both mother and father are completely stunned at the faithfulness of God.
Fifteen years ago I had prayed, "Father, I return to Zimbabwe with my family because of my love for ministry. If my daughter Ndina should get her education from the good Christian university in the US, it would enable her to fulfill her God-given dream of serving others." I praise God today as I prepare for her to travel to the US in August. As a parent, I trust God to provide the remaining finances for my daughter's education. In my trust on God I will do what I have always done the rest of my life: I have always counted on God's people to help me serve him better. I pray you would consider helping Ndina realize her life dream of service.
