Three keys to more abundant living: caring about others, daring for others and sharing with others. Since we joined Avondale Parish outreach team (to Mabvuku), we have learned a lot from our visits. We have met a lot of new people and managed to make new friends. We have seen the essence of voluntary work through our discussions with different families in Mabvuku.
One of the marvellous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. We are very happy and grateful for the joined mass we had with a youth group from St Mary’s Chitungwiza Anglican Church on 13th of February. It was a lively day which we shared with such a cheerful youth group at TYP house.
Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each one of us there is a private hope and dream which can be translated into a benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.

You cannot put a limit on anything; for the more you dream and believe, the further you go! And even if you run into an obstacle be it a wall or a mountain,with determination and focus, one is able to go over or around it.
On 19th December, just a week after our yearly Christmas party, Ishmael and his vibrant team from Steward Bank, Avondale branch spent a wonderful afternoon at Tariro House ;another Christmas party!

We felt blessed to have Bishop Brian come to celebrate mass at TYP House on the 8th of October 2015. The first reading was from Malachi 3 v 13 to Malach 4v 1 -2.The Gospel reading came from Luke 11 v 5-12.It was such a great and amazing mass as Bishop Brian moved us not to give up but continue asking, seeking and knocking the door of our savior Jesus Christ. He said that even when we fail we should not give up but keep on trying and praying . We should also seek for God’s answers after asking and we should remember that God will not give us a burning candle as this would harm us , though we might have asked
Church and nation are entering the season of remembering. Next Sunday is Remembrance Sunday when the country is drawn together to remember with thanksgiving those who have died in conflict. Today the Church begins the celebration of All Saints, remembering with thanksgiving all those women and men of faith who have inspired and encouraged others in their faith. In two days time, we celebrate All Souls, when we remember with thanksgiving relatives and friends who have been special and important to us but who have now died.
Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God. We felt the full presence of God the whole day on 3rd of October 2015.
We thank Mrs. Mafukidze for leading a team of ladies from The House of Praise Church on Saturday 12th September. This wonderful team of mothers spent a full morning with us. This was time well spent in sharing love, spontaneous singing, and scripture and..... to our surprise a generous boot full of groceries!!
The 5th of September was a day set aside in memory of our departed parents. Its a profound day full of memories (most of them imagined) as we cherish the special people who gave birth to each every Tariro youth member. For some, we also remember the quality time we shared with our deceased parents.
Every year Tariro family sets aside a day for praying and fasting. On Saturday the 22nd of August we headed to Domboshava as a family for a day at the prayer mountain.
