Saneliso and Her Children - Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

My name is Saneliso, a Nurse Educator by profession. I am a mother of two children, a 19 year old son (Michael) and a 14 year old daughter (Naomi). I was met in 1997 while training as a nursing student, studied the bible, got baptized and became a disciple in 1998. In 1999, I met Tazvi in the singles ministry, dated for a while and then got married in 2000. God blessed us with the above mentioned children that we cherish and natured together until November 14, 2020 when he collapsed and died instantly but he had not been obviously ill. It was sad to learn that he had cardiomyopathy that none of us knew about. He was a very active, soft spoken man that never complained nor grumbled about anything.

Life has not been the same since his passing on. He was a Lecturer in Tool Making Engineering Department at one of the government Colleges. My late husband was a responsible man who loved us and God‘s people. At the time of his death, we were serving as Benevolence Ministry Leaders and part of the Church Leadership Team. Previously, our church in Bulawayo did not have full time leaders and Tazvi (and I supporting) served as a Ministry leader (part time) for 12 years, from 2007 to 2019 when the church appointed an Evangelist and his wife from Harare to take over as full time leaders.

It has now been close to half a year since he went to be with the Lord and I am so grateful to have been with a wonderful man who helped me to remain focused on the cross. However, with our prevailing economic challenges, I am struggling to support my children with their education. Everything happened so suddenly and I am still trying to make adjustments so I can live within my means and support my children. I am paying the mortgage for our home, medical insurance, funeral policy, bills, fuel and our basic necessities so it has been tough.

I desperately need funding for my son who is supposed to continue with his education. We are required to pay for application fee for a scholarship to secure the place on or before 15 April 2021.

This phase of life is very unusual and full of uncertainties but being a part of the huge family of God, I trust that I will finish strong with all the support that I continue to receive.
