Location of Ministry and/or Service Area?Zimbabwe (Main Area), Zambia, And Mozambique
I Denford was born in Zimbabwe,my wife Shingie was born in Jamaica but we both grew up in Zimbabwe. Part of my growing up was in rural Zimbabwe, Mhondoro in particular where currently most of ADMT work is being done. My wife Shingie mainly grew up in Harare. Most of our schooling was also done in Harare. We also grew up in the same Church in Harare, Zimbabwe and that's how we met. We have been blessed with three kids: two girls, Hannah 12 years and Joanna 5 years and a boy Caleb 11 years.
Through prayers seeking God's specific will for my life, as I was just beginning my professional career, God placed a burden upon my heart to start and preach His Word. I consequently went to Bible College in Zimbabwe and the USA. Over the years His calling has grown into taking the life changing message of our Lord Jesus Christ into other nations beyond the borders of Zimbabwe.
