Meet the Sibandas
Claimet Sibanda became involved with Teen Missions through the BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK (BMW) Training Center in Zimbabwe. He started BMW in 1992 and graduated two years later in 1994. After finishing school he joined Teen Missions staff. He helped with local outreach, planted churches, and other ministries. After working with Teen Missions for several years he met his wife, Sipho. They were married in 1998. Soon after their marriage, they moved to Zambia to serve at the Teen Missions base there. They helped with the annual Boot Camp, served in the AIDS Orphans ministry and worked with the BMW students. In April 2003 they returned to Zimbabwe to coordinate the base and BMW. Though they encountered struggles they testify that they have seen the hand of God at work in their lives. Claimet and Sipho have two daughters, Hope and Delight.
