South African churches express overwhelming support for targeted economic sanctions against Zimbabwe

ENI is reporting that

"Delegates from churches in Zimbabwe, South Africa and other southern African countries meeting in Johannesburg have expressed "overwhelming support" for targeted economic sanctions against Zimbabwe.
A statement from the South African Council of Churches, which was co-hosting the 13-17 July meeting, described targeted economic sanctions "as a practical strategy to loosen former President Robert Mugabe's 'illegitimate' grip on power and to promote a negotiated political settlement".

You can read the full SACC statement here and also a report on Roderick Hewitt's sermon I mentioned yesterday.
Keep praying for the people of Zimbabwe. Overcome fear by faith.
