Kamima C. Botha
Youth Dialogue Zimbabwe
Home Country: Zambia, Africa
Kamima Botha is a Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. He was commissioned in August 2017.
The Global Mission Fellows program takes young adults ages 20-30 out of their home environments and places them in new contexts for mission experience and service. The program has a strong emphasis on faith and justice. Global Mission Fellows become active parts of their new local communities. They connect the church in mission across cultural and geographical boundaries. They grow in personal and social holiness and become strong young leaders working to build just communities in a peaceful world.
Kamima is from Choma, a city in southern Zambia, where he is a member of the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church of Zambia. He holds a bachelor’s degree in law from the Open University of Zambia. He has been active in the youth ministry of his congregation and in community service projects.
Born into a Christian home, Kamima was active in the church from an early age and experienced rebirth in Christ at age 18. “I thank God,” he says, “that I am growing and learning new and great things every day. I have seen and experienced love, as it sys in John 4:7: ‘dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.’ I have come to know that God care about my deeds and my character, and the way I relate to and treat others.”
Kamima’s call to mission is related to his conviction that the church is called to work for equality in the world—to foster justice, mercy and faithfulness. “The church is a place where people of different races, tribes, and ethnic groups meet and are free to interact and take initiatives to resist injustice and to evangelize.” He understands that the church is also a place of love and generosity.
