    – A new church called AGAPE International has been launched in Chivhu and hundreds of people including Chief Mutekedza turned up for the ceremony on Saturday last week.
    A primary and secondary school will be constructed at the site of the church which is in one of Chivhu's new suburbs.
    The founder of the church Lorraine Wilson who is based in Canada was present at the launch together with Apostle Simbarashe Marechera, Pastor Lovemore Marechera and the Chivhu based Pastor John Mugabe.
    Wilson who is 55-years-old told the congregation that she had a vision of launching a church when she was just 12 years.
    She said the church which is international started three months ago in Chivhu and will spread to other towns in due course.
    The thrust of the church is to assist orphans, widows and widowers since they are the most neglected people in communities.
    Apart from being the founder of the church, Wilson has an orphanage at Backenhill area in Chivhu where she looks after more than 65 vulnerable people. She provides them with food, shelter, school fees, clothing and medication amongst many other provisions.
    She started looking after orphans in 1989 in Marondera.
    "I started taking care of vulnerable people in 1989 in Marondera. I provide them with every basic need because I want them to gain their own skills in life. Some of the orphans I am looking after are learning at Daramombe Primary and Secondary School," she said.
    Wilson said when funds are available, she will complete construction of a primary school which will be named Shamiso Primary before constructing a church and people will be conducting church services in the classrooms. The construction of the school which is at foundation level is expected to be completed as soon as the funds are available.
    Chief Mtekedza said the launch of the church was a positive move and encouraged church members to remain united. He said he was impressed to hear that the church will assist vulnerable people in community.
    Shamiso Secondary School will also be constructed close to the primary school.
    Wilson has got a nursing home and a home for children with special needs in Canada.
