HARARE (Worthy News)-- Zimbabwe government authorities are threatening to arrest any Christians who refuse to leave the Maleme farm in Bulawayo where the Shalom and Ebenezer Christian ministries are located, according to Barnabas Aid.

The Christians were told to hand the farm over to a new owner and to shut down its ministries.

Since 1958, the Maleme farm has hosted Christians from all over the country. In 2007, another portion of the farm was dedicated to the Ebenezer ministry, which trains 75 apprentices in agri-business annually.

The Shalom campsite has accommodated around 16,000 overnight stays per year; plans had been underway to expand the Ebenezer program and double the number of its apprentices in 2015.
