JourneyPartners connects resources, people, challenges and opportunities around the world and at home. We focus in three main arenas: clean and available water, education and resources, and health and medicine. Past celebrations included the construction of a 75,000 gallon water reservoir in Gweru, Zimbabwe; assisting the new Alliance of Baptists in Brazil in the publication of Walter Shurden's “Four Fragile Freedoms” in Portugese, and delivery of more than two tons of supplementary textbooks to Jones County Schools in eastern North Carolina. More recent partnerships have brought more than a dozen cross-cultural mission immersion teams to Zimbabwe, and included the construction of a hostel to house AIDS orphans in Masembura and shipment of more than 500 nursing and medical textbooks to nursing schools in several developing areas.      

2009 initiatives included the fifth Leadership Institute -- Leading Women -- in which more than 150 women from communities and congregations all over Zimbabwe participated.  Ongoing projects include reconstruction of the only medical clinic in the remote village of Nenyunga, to replace the one currently being washed away by the nearby river’s changing path; expansion of the Kutenda Children's Home, a small orphanage in Masembura, in rural northeastern Zimbabwe, and currently home to 24 children who have lost both parents to AIDS; reconstruction of houses in the grotas of Maceio in northeastern Brazil, and continuing water purification and community health projects in Zimbabwe and Brazil.  The work projects for 2009 were to provide deep, clean-water boreholes for Nenyunga, home to the minority Tonga people, to provide portable chlorine-generating water purification systems in remote areas without access to clean, potable water, and to build a small caretaker’s house at the site of the new clinic.
