May 3, 2014 One Day Conferece for Men and Women of God at Candlestone Resort
Pastor Jane Mutatu
Pastor Jane Mutatu, a Zimbabwean Woman of God. A gentleman blogged his experience after he had sat under one of Jane’s lectures. In part this is what he wrote about Pastor Jane Mutatu. “Women are Something Else – I’ve always thought that women are smarter than men because they are natural pragmatists in ways that most men simply can’t compare, but they don’t hold it against us. They see the forest and the trees, and are sensible to the needs of both. Women forgive. In Africa, women are expected to take care of their sick and dying. At the same time their life expectancy is now 34 years young. This is in part because women are also the largest population infected with HIV/AIDS due to infidelity and violent incidence cause by men. By Sutterlearn.com”
Jane Mutatu with the grace of God learned within the framework of disappointment and dedication for those whom she loved to extend life and to extend it with God-given quality. Jane nursed relatives dying from diseases related to the HIV epidemic in Africa. Jane sought out physicians and scientists who guided her to experiment with soybean as a form of protein. Since 1998, Jane influenced and trained 100 local women in her country, which is now 10,000 women strong across the continent using the benefits of soy to buy more time with their loved ones. Soybean, previously frowned upon in Africa as uncommon food for animals or the poor, provided the protein necessary to keep Jane’s family alive. Day by day, as her experience with soy grew, so did her influence as neighbors watched her family living longer.
Jane’s efforts planting soybeans and making soy milk for her ailing family has not gone unnoticed in her home country of Zimbabwe. The Ministry of Science and Technology recruited her to supply soymilk to hospitals to help others combating AIDS. Mutatu eventually won an award from the Ministry for her efforts on this front.
Jane is the co-founder and Managing Director of Bashan Nutrifoods situated in Gweru peri-urban in Zimbabwe. Jane obtained a National Diploma in Journalism from ChristianCollege of Southern Africa (1989), a National Diploma in Metallurgical Technology from Harare Polytechnic (1992) and a B.Sc degree in Metallurgical Engineering with the University of Zimbabwe (1995).
Jane has been able to galvanize and motivate rural subsistence farmers to grow soybeans which have a high nutritional value and assist in boosting the immune system. She was able to commission the first soy processing plant in Zimbabwe which produces soy milk, soy cake and yoghurt. She has hosted several farming events at her farm attracting the attention of senior government officials, university researchers, students and communal farmers. For the effort Bashan farm received numerous awards the most notable being ‘The Most Innovative Farmer’ awarded by Midlands State University in collaboration with the Ministries of Agriculture and Science and Technology. Jane is a member of various professional organizations, namely the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Board, Zimbabwe National Soybean Association (ZINSCA), Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce, IDEA Zimbabwe and Kellogg Foundation Midlands Chapter.

Event Host Speaker
Cyndi is the wife of John Michael Higgins. John is a solid man of God and a full time crop farmer in Michigan. Together they have 8 adult children and 23 grandchildren. Cyndi owns the business, Exams Express, Inc. a title searching company for real estate matters in Michigan.
Cyndi is a National and International public speaker. Only by the grace of God, did Cyndi Harper survive complications at birth and a violent upbringing. Many would argue that it is out of character that a survivor of both childhood and domestic abuse would love, live, and teach peace as much as she does. Perhaps one needs only to remember the words of Joseph in Genesis 50:20, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Although not legally changing her name, many know her as Pastor Cyndi Higgins.
Through her eight children’s books, under the name Cyndi Harper-Deiters, she began teaching young children non-violent problem solving methods in 1992. Cyndi’s successful writing and speaking career began immediately after graduating from the Institute of Children’s Literature. With eleven published books and speaking engagements in schools across America, Cyndi’s message not only captured the hearts of the children but those of the educators and parents as well. Cyndi skillfully used Jonathan Michael the Resident Rooster, the books’ main character, to teach children non-violence and the art of peacemaking.
Between 1992 and 1996, Cyndi studied as a volunteer Mediator with The Dispute Resolution Center of West Michigan, and attended Jordan College. Already using her business degree, she changed her educational interest to literature, child-development, and computer applications. She uses the knowledge gained by her variety of studies to communicate better through her books, recorded prayers, songwriting, lesson-plans, pastoral counseling, and public speaking. In 2007, Cyndi retired from full time employment at her company, Exams Express Inc., and shortly thereafter, began her ministerial studies.
Pastor Cyndi was ordained under Dr. Morris Cerullo of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism and Bishop (Dr.) Anthony Yeboah of Free International Missions in January 2012. She is the Sr. Pastor of Barefoot Gardens Fellowship Ministries in Ada, Michigan (Grand Rapids). The local focus is on binding up the broken-hearted through the 35-week course, “Rejoice Freedom;” she wrote the curriculum and lessons plans for this very successful recovery program. This program helps individuals recover from emotional hurts that have led them into addictions and destructive behaviors. The structuring of the Mission’s Ministry, Run-Away-Brides (RAB) and writing the autobiographical book of a reconciled bride to initiate the cause and inspire run-away-brides to return to Jesus is her current endeavor. With her God-given writing talent, she creatively weaves the beautiful purpose of life. She skillfully uses her gifting in the book, “Run Away Bride, the Story of a Reconciled Runner,” introducing God’s beloved masterpiece the human-heart, soul, mind, willpower, body, and spirit with love, compassion, and understanding
