Kudzai S. Mhishi
Initiative for Solutions Africa
Home Country: Zimbabwe, Africa
Kudzai Mhishi is a Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. She 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.
Kudzai is from Harare in the Zimbabwe East Annual Conference where she is a member of the Waterfalls United Methodist Church. She holds a Bachelor of Public Health degree from Monash University, South Africa Campus. She has worked as a public health intern, an administrative assistant, and data services intern.
Her faith journey, Kudzai says, has been shaped by situations and challenges that has made her a stronger Christian and showed her the constant, unending love of God. “I have grown in faith through people who encourage me to stand strong and faithful to God and put what I believe into action.” Based on her experience, Kudzai believes that prayer changes things.
In the Christian home of her youth, Kudzai learned to entrust her talents and abilities to God and use them to ensure the dignity and rights of every person. She feels a special responsibility to help young people of her generation to “understand that they are part of Christ’s body and have the zeal to work together in developing the world and spreading God’s word.”
