June 2016 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update
Our 80 resident children at the Mieze and Noviane Children’s Centres enjoy welcoming visitors…and especially when they are visitors who’ve come before and built relationships with many of the same kids over several years.
Many of our older Noviane resident kids are now on Facebook and have access to other social media. This has enabled them to maintain communication with sponsors and adult friends from churches on the other side of the world. How different this all is from where we began with these same kids only 6-8 years ago!
A recent visit by a team from Don and Elizabeth’s home church in PEI was a memorable case in point. The children at Mieze and Noviane had been anticipating their visit almost as much as the members of the Canadian team; and they all had a week of fun, food, and rich fellowship together.
The team blessed the children…and the children blessed the team members. The teary eyes at the end of the visit told the story: it was a precious little foretaste of heaven when all geographic and linguistic barriers will be gone forever.
