In August last year, Tariro Arthur Ruwona (36), a disciple in the Harare International Church of Christ, was diagnosed with acquired rheumatic heart disease and needed urgent open-heart surgery.

Tariro, a husband and father-of-two young children, wrote this letter of appreciation:

He is Our Peace - How one sister saw five members of her family become disciples

After 16 years of being the only disciple in her family, Ruth Hewitt, a sister in the Johannesburg Church of Christ (South Africa) cried out to God and expressed her loneliness in her physical family. God answered her prayer and over the eight years that followed, she's seen her older sister, her brother-in-law, her niece, her own daughter and her 82-year-old mother become disciples.

A New Mission in Lfe, Looking after Widows

Toko Muodzi, a sister from Harare, Zimbabwe, in the southern region of Africa, was happily married for 20 years, then she became a widow. Now she’s found a new mission in life: encouraging and helping other widows in her city.

 What can a disciple accomplish in a short time, far away from the comfort of their well-organised church? Well, you'd be surprised.

The Healing of a Wounded Idealist

As leaders in the ICOC for the past 25 years and having navigated the ups and downs of our church's history, we have been very encouraged to see the growth and progress of many Christians in the maturing of their faith.

Many of these disciples, or “Wounded Idealists”, have lost the dream and cannot effectively find their way back to faithful conviction. Life has turned out to be significantly harder than they expected when they were idealistic campus students. The church, marriage, parenting, health, finances and relationships have become sources of disappointment and disillusionment; and despite their best efforts, they have become increasingly cynical.
