“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.” [Ezekiel 33:6]
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Ephesians 6:12]

 Reformed Church of Zimbabwe Working to Recover Land Stolen by Grace Mugabe during Husband Robert Mugabe’s Rule
A 24 January 2018 PaZimbabwe article by Lex Vambe titled “Grace Mugabe Embroiled In a Nasty Land Dispute With Reformed Church in Zimbabwe” reports that the Reformed Church in Zimbabwe, now that Romert Mugabe is out of office, is seeking to recover land earmarked for a school that was stolen by Grace Mugabe during husband Robert’s rule over Zimbabwe.
The Eaglesvale Senior School planned to build a new school building on the approx. sixty-acre plot of land until Grace Mugabe seized it and began growing corn on it. The Mugabes were reported to have seized fourteen farms during Robert Mugabe’s tenure as leader of Zimbabwe.
The Moderator-designate for the 2018 General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) is the Rev. David Blunt, minister of the Free Church Continuing congregation of North Uist & Grimsay.
Born in Essex in 1958 and brought up in Hampshire, Mr. Blunt studied Environmental Science at the University College of Wales, which was followed by research at Dundee University.
Finding the naturalistic explanation for the universe implausible and the evolutionary account of man's origin inadequate, he then read the Bible for the first time. The result was an awareness of the holiness of God, a sense of personal sin and a longing for forgiveness. Helped by the witness of Christians he met through the providence of God, by divine grace he came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in 1983.
His conversion led to opportunities to serve the Lord, including assisting at a city mission and teaching part-time at a Christian primary school. Sensing a call to the gospel ministry, Mr. Blunt attended the Free Church College for three years as a private student. In 2000 he was inducted by the Free Church Continuing as an Evangelist / Church Planter based in Aberdeen and in 2007 accepted a call to the North Uist & Grimsay congregation in the Western Isles. He has served both as a Presbytery Clerk and Clerk to Assembly Committees.
Editor of the denominational magazine Free Church Witness since 2017, Mr Blunt is also the author of Presbyterianism, published by the Free Church (Continuing), and of Which Bible Version: Does it Really Matter?, published by the Trinitarian Bible Society.
Married to Sybil, who comes from Point in Lewis, he enjoys reading, walking and gardening.
