Further on Zimbabwe

Further to my recent article is a letter from Asafa received today, (16 October 2008):

Dear Geoff

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and your thoughts about Zimbabwe especially at this time.

It was refreshing catching up with the memory of our time in Prague and the Z$50 billion dollar bill.

When I came back from Prague, there was introduced a new Z$100 billion dollar bill which lasted only for half a month before 10 zeros were slashed off reducing it to new currency Z$10 and the Z$50 billion dollar to new currency Z$5.

Since then inflation has skyrocketed to over 400 million percent. Two months ago we could buy a loaf of bread with the new currency Z$10. Today we need new currency Z$15000. I have never seen or heard anything like this in my life or read of it in history.

Your prayers for us are greatly appreciated and I have also enjoyed your articles and I am linking some of the BUZ theologians with the Theologians Without Borders website.

The Lord bless

Asafa
