Givemore and Sylvia Nyakambiri

Givemore was born in a family of eight and he is the firstborn. He and his family stayed in Kadoma, northwest of Harare. This is the same town where Sylvia and her parents lived. It is also the town where they married in 1998. During one of Kennedy Simtowe’s visits to Norton, Zimbabwe, in 1999 Sylvia and their first daughter, Tarsha-Naj, were introduced to the Grace Message. Their family began attending Zambia Grace Bible College in 2000. They came back home and planted a church in Chinhoyi in 2001 and a few years later planted another one in Kariba. Givemore and his family have worked in Chinhoyi since then. In 2004, GMI sent Givemore to Mozambique for a short missions trip. Pastoring the church in Chinhoyi was his main occupation after returning from Mozambique in late 2004. He went to Zambia to study missions at ProChristo Global Missions (now OM) in 2008 and Sylvia studied at the same college in 2009 and graduated with a diploma. They went back to Chinhoyi in 2010 and continued pastoring until 2013 before they moved to Malawi. Givemore graduated from African Bible College with a degree in Biblical Studies and minored in Community Development. The calling to missions became strong when they were in Mozambique and since then the desire to serve God where Christ Jesus is not preached fully was cemented in our hearts. Whether they were in Chinhoyi or anywhere God wanted them, equipping others for the ministry in teaching, leadership training, and counselling remained paramount. Sylvia connects with ladies by teaching sewing, equipping ladies with ways to run their homes with the little they have, as well as how they can proactively help in their homes with very small businesses. She and the other ladies were able to help the church with finances in Chinhoyi.

In 2017, Givemore and Sylvia were accepted as GMI missionaries. They are currently serving alongside the missionaries on the Malawi team working in the areas of evangelism, training and church planting. The plan is for them to transition into Mozambique to work with Kennedy and Sofia Simtowe to open this new field in the near future.

In February 2018 their youngest child, J-Nathan, who had struggled for a very long time with illness, was diagnosed with leukemia. He began his first round of chemotherapy right away at a local hospital in Malawi. Please remember      J-Nathan in your prayers that he can beat this cancer!
