GRACE HARVEST MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL (GHMI) started off as a Boys Fellowship in the small town of Rusape, in the eastern province of Manicaland in Zimbabwe.God spoke to His servant Major Prophet Tawanda Blessing Bondera at a time that he had enrolled at a catholic seminary to become a catholic priest that he was indeed called into the prophetic ministry. After fasting for a year in the mountain between 2006-2007, the servant of God Major Prophet T.B. Bondera now a young man in his early 20s came together with a group of boys and started to move around the town of Rusape preaching the gospel and the power of God was manifest through the many testimonies and miracles that were witnessed wherever they went. This group of boys, amongst them Pastor Valentine Samushonga Kamunda, led by the servant of God were later joined by other women to form the pioneers of GHMI.
The first service of GHMI was held on 22 July 2009 in Rusape. So mightily grew the Word of God in Rusape and more numbers were added daily, receiving Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Saviour. This heralded the birth of GHMI and the Rusape Assembly. The ministry then went on to establish the second assembly at a place called Batanai in Macheke in the same province of Manicaland.
Here the servant of God would travel a distance of 23 kilometers on foot from Half Way Home along the Harare – Mutare highway to Batanai and back sometimes in the rain or in the scorching heat or at times at night through the bush to conduct services there.
The first service in Harare the capital city of Zimbabwe was held in Kambuzuma on 14 December 2012. In 2013 the CATHEDRAL OF GRACE was opened in Mabvuku, an eastern high density suburb of Harare. This assembly has grown to be the largest assembly were thousands gather every Sunday. Two years later another assembly was opened in the central business district of Harare and held services at various sites including 3rd floor of Kingston House to accommodate the huge numbers that continued to grow every week.
