Malawi Provisional Annual Conference
Home Country: Zimbabwe, Africa
Ruvimbo Zvikomborero (Zviko) Simango is a Global Mission Fellow of the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries. She was commissioned in August 2016.
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.
Zviko is from Zimbabwe, where she is a member of the Penhalonga United Methodist Circuit in the city of Mutare in the Zimbabwe East Annual Conference. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree (with honors) from Chinhoyi University of Technology in Chinhoyi. She has worked as a quality control and production intern at Eastern Highlands Plantation, which produces coffee, tea, and timber.
“My faith deepens as I grow older,” Zviko says. “By putting faith into action, my life has been transformed, and I am a better person. I can testify that I serve a living and miracle-working God.”
Zviko says she was “destined to be a missionary” from a young age because she found great satisfaction in visiting orphanages as a Girl Guide or with a Sunday school class, bringing food and clothing, spending time with the children. “Then, I did not realize it was mission work,” she says. She continued activities like these in college and found her calling.
