British missionaries Peter and Brenda Griffiths set up a flourishing secondary school in Zimbabwe, only to see its staff slaughtered by guerrilla fighters. But from the ruin of the Griffiths' efforts emerged a generation of faithful Christian leadership. A powerful account of courage and sacrifice.

A powerful account of British missionaries, Peter and Brenda Griffiths, who played a critical role in the development of the Elim church in the aftermath of the Vumba massacre. Peter and Brenda Griffiths, Steve's parents and their team had set up a superb secondary school, only for guerrillas to slaughter almost all the staff. After the funerals of those that had been killed Peter maintained that forgiveness for those who had attacked was the Christian thing to do. Despite the question of forgiveness becoming a very controversial issue in Zimbabwe. Sadly Peter dies prematurely of a brain tumour and Brenda is repeatedly robbed and ultimately flees the country in her 70s, leaving behind the ruins of all she sought to accomplish. Yet this is not the end of the story. Many students she and Peter taught have kept their faith, though scattered across the country, and many are now in positions of leadership and influence. The secondary school is now twice the size it was before the massacre, and the strong Christian church in Zimbabwe today continues to honour Peter and Brenda's courage and sacrifice.
