GOSPEL sensations Blessing Shumba and Munyaradzi Munodawafa will headline the much-awaited “Rest in Peace” crusade slated for Sakubva Stadium next Friday.
The crusade will be led by popular Harare-based House of Grace International Church leader and prophet Sham Hungwe. He has been conducting the prophetic and healing sessions dubbed “Rest in Peace – A Night of Undiluted Power” countrywide and will be descending on the eastern border city for the first time.
The session is expected to draw thousands of people from across the province and beyond. The crusade starts at 6pm and will run for the whole night. In an interview from his Harare base, Prophet Hungwe promised a night of bliss.
“It is time for people of Mutare to bury their problems, be it health- wise, spiritual and financial. The night will be filled with heavenly miracles, deliverance and prophecy. It will be a spirit-filled night where I will deliver people with all kinds of infirmities and break the yokes of bondage in Jesus name.
“It is a night where situations will be changed for the better. No one with any kind of sickness will return home the same. I will also dedicate some hours for preaching. People need to be reminded that God is the provider of everything. They should find solace in God for he is our Father in season and out of season,” said Hungwe.
Mutare’s gospel golden jewel and award-winning musician Shumba is expected to preach through music. He is expected to perform a blend of yesteryear and new hits such as ‘‘Mufaro’’, ‘‘Zita’’, ‘‘Timene Timene’’ and ‘‘My Season’’.
Another talented gospel ace and keyboard wizard, Munodawafa who is currently riding high with an 11-track album, ‘‘Mwari Vachitiitira Zvakanaka’’ (Step YeNyasha) is also expected to thrill people.
The Masvingo-born musician, who launched his career in 1998 at a tender age, rose to stardom two decades ago after the release of soulful track, ‘‘Shandisa Chipo Chako’’ off the album, ‘‘Mwari Anoona’’.
He also partnered Mathias Mhere on the song “Border Tavhara”. He boasts of albums such as ‘‘Farai Munashe’’ (2006), ‘‘Zvinouraya’’ (2010), ‘‘Zvava Nezodzo’’ (2012) and ‘‘Chikwata Chinokunda’’ (2014).
Hungwe, who conducts his healing and prophetic sessions in Harare’s high-density suburb of Highfield, is one of the most sought after prophets in the capital city.
