The Celebrations started in Mashonaland East Zone (Marondera, Mrewa and Mutoko Provinces) on Saturday the 11th of November. Over 50 SADOP gathered to celebrate our Father’s legacy through song, dance and sharing of testimonies of the life and ministry of our Father. Our International Sadop Director Overseer D. Guni encouraged the SADOP to hold on to what we have seen, learned, received and heard from our Father. That same night the Celebrations moved to the Harare Zone (Greater Harare Norton and Chitungwiza Provinces) were over 200 SADOP gathered to celebrate our Father’s legacy. The event was graced by our Mother Archbishop Prof Eunor Guti, Bishop Moses Mlambo, Bishop Anna Mawoko, our SG Apostle M Nyambo and Ovr Mazuruse. Our Mother taught us about understanding the Covenant that God made with our Father, and that we are beneficiaries of the blessings of that covenant hence we ought not to be ordinary. We as SADOP must make history just like Isaac who prospered because of the covenant between God and Abraham his Father. Indeed, our eyes were opened and our lives will never be the same.The Legacy Celebrations bandwagon now heads to the Midlands, Bulawayo, Masvingo and even other outside nations! SADOP We wanna be like them!!
