Mahlatse Winston Mashua is the Director of RZIM Zacharias Trust in South Africa. He grew up in Bushbuckridge, in the Mpumalanga Province, within a household that practiced Ancestralism (a traditional African religion). He came to know Jesus early in his life when he had a miraculous encounter during a visit to his village by itinerant missionaries. He went on to study biochemistry at the University of KwaZulu Natal, and, more recently, apologetics at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. He served as a pastor for a church in Durban for seven years where he was also involved with training the congregation in evangelism and discipleship. He regularly speaks evangelistically in many different contexts including rural villages, townships, and university campuses. Mahlatse is married to Lusanda and they live in Durban.
