It sounds like a tragedy in the making: A young African boy loses both parents at an early age. He and his brother end up in an orphanage, where they spend the rest of their growing-up years. Like most orphans, he has many obstacles to overcome, and he must do so in a third-world country.
But the reality of Anyway Mupesewa’s story is not tragic at all. Eden Children’s Village, the orphanage that became his home, had Christ at its center. Not only did Mupesewa receive Christ at an early age, but God also commissioned him to spread the gospel. From the time he was old enough to read the Bible, he took the Great Commission as his personal mandate. He became an avid soul-winner who earned the nickname of “Evangelist.”
Mupesewa earned his bachelor’s in youth ministry and preaching from Johnson University in Knoxville, Tennessee, and has recently earned his master’s as well. His education and discipleship by godly mentors have equipped him to pursue his passion of taking the gospel to his home country.
“Salvation is man’s greatest need, and I have been commissioned to fulfill this need beginning in Zimbabwe,” Mupesewa says.”Nothing can substitute for the calling God has placed on my heart. I dream of a day when Zimbabweans will not only make disciples among themselves, but send out missionaries to our neighboring countries, or rather to the ends of the world.”
