Leesville, LA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Hope Builders Ministries has partnered with indigenous leaders in Zimbabwe, Africa to train Disciple Makers to establish classes in rural communities. These classes allow evangelists to represent Christ in their villages.
The multiplication of evangelists and new believers has exploded to such an extent that Hope Builders Ministries needs urgent help to provide them with the tools to do the job efficiently. On average, a Bible, in their local language, will influence the lives of 20 people and a bicycle will enhance the evangelist's ability to reach 12 times the number of villages and disciples trained. The increase in pace to effectively reach new villages can only continue if Hope Builders Ministries are enabled to supply them with the tools to do the job.
Hope Builders Ministries recognizes that it is very difficult to expand the representation of Christ openly. They have been very pleased with the persistence and sacrifices made by the original trainers and need some more support for them to continue their fruitful work.
Among the materials needed for new evangelists are 15 bicycles for graduates leaving training in January, as well as a total of 375 Bibles in three local languages. Many more Bibles are needed in the areas where work was established earlier. Evangelists also need a small stipend to keep them on the road serving local villages.

<br>About the Ministry:<br> The goal of Hope Builders Ministries worldwide is to be obedient to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. In obedience to this command, HBM is determined to encourage and empower indigenous ministries proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ. This encouragement and empowerment is facilitated through close, vital relationships and strategic partnerships between Christians from developed countries to Christians in developing countries. The partnerships translate into financial support for strategic development of pastoral training and disciple making in the context of the local church. Growing out of this strategic focus is the need for Bibles for biblical training for the pastors and their wives (Lydia Circle) and helping widows and orphans through the Dignity Project. HBM facilitates support for these vital ministries and provides the accountability necessary to insure the integrity of the support rendered.
