Simiso grew up in a small village in the Shiselweni region of Eswatini. His mother raised him alone, though she told him who his father was, and he was able to get to know some of his father’s family.
World Challenge’s partners in Eswatini have begun a special outreach called Potter’s Prison Ministry, believing that God has incredible plans for those who are currently behind bars.
This ministry has seen incredible growth this year.
Eswatini, known as Swaziland until its king changed the name last year, is a country in southern Africa about the size of New Jersey and where many of its people live in poverty and fear of HIV.
One rugged corner of Eswatini is known as Ngwempisi, after the river that carves through its hills. For many tourists to the region, the river is a kayaking attraction.
