So true is the scripture, ‘then the LORD replied: "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.’ Habakkuk 2 verse 2 (NIV 1984)
We read the vision as written by Dr S. Munyeza about God’s plan for Zimbabwe. I was one of the runners, I was empowered to do so, the empowering was so spiritual, and l understood what God says about a nation that does not exalt Him. Through my fellow committee members under the chairmanship of Doug Mamvura, I got to understand and appreciate the plans that God has for Zimbabwe. This happened during the preparation stages as Friday after Friday we met, discussed the execution of this gathering. Week after week, the vision became very clear on paper and the mission given looked like no joke.
After every meeting l would ask any one of the members where really we were going, was that achievable and am grateful to the wise team, each one had a way to explain the logistics into detail. I wondered by the magnitude of the event, the number of invitations sent to different denominations, different organizations and individuals, l asked myself, ‘Who will finance this?’ As days became closer, the revelation became clearer but not crystal clear, but we continued running, continued executing, the meetings became intense and more time demanding.
Pastor Sande started updating on the confirmations and then we all realised that the ‘plane had taken off despite that as a committee we were still preparing the runway’, the pilot Dr Munyeza had taken position in the cockpit. Here we needed to be practical, money was needed, we had invited a thousand men and not just men, but servants of God.
