I like to keep folks updated about the amazing work of Zimbabwean poet and peace Activist Lance Muteyo and so I share his letter and some of his photographs …
Daniel Buttry and I co-facilitated a ten day Conflict Transformation Trainers Training workshop for participants from the Middle East, USA, Africa, Asia, Eastern and Western Europe 4- 1 4 May 2015.
Special thanks goes to International Ministries, Global Peace-making Mentoring Project, Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America- Gavel Memorial Peace Fund, Trees of Peace Africa-Zimbabwe, Ukrainian Evangelical Theological Seminary, Pan African
Peace Network (PAPNET) and all individuals who have supported us one way or the other through prayers and any other support.
This training was good for PAPNET in that it created opportunities and avenues for the world to know and acknowledge peace efforts that have been done in Africa. This platform created a peace mission partnership of Christina my wife and me to explore peace missions in Africa. Our first port of call is rural Luapula in Zambia. We also explored possibilities of empowering African immigrants who are perishing in the Mediterranean waters.
One of our participants was Crispinus Ouma Pamba from Kenya who works with African immigrants in Italy. He shall be our reference person.
We managed to plant a tree of peace called the snowball tree and had a big graduation ceremony as I celebrated and thanked each participant in style by singing a song and reciting a poem
for each and every person coupled with the Zimbabwean mbira instrument. Amani Milele (Peace Forever) Lance
