October 2016 Children's Feeding Program in Northern Mozambique Update

Most of those reading this report have never had to go to bed hungry or wonder where their next meal will come from. But that's the daily reality for the majority of poor village children in Mieze. The government claims to have won the war against poverty; but the truth is very different for the rural poor throughout Mozambique. The majority of village children continue to suffer the ravages of  extreme poverty; and a large part of our ministry in Mieze and rural Pemba is helping meet these most basic human needs in Jesus' name.

October 2016 Bob & Betty Blanchette Update

It has been so good to return to Zimpeto after a season in Canada. It has been great to see all of our friends and the children, and the young  men and women that we work with.

Bob has been busy with the carpentry training program, building some doors and windows, a desk and a bench.They also  tore out the old play ground equipment on base. The children were not too happy! What they didn’t know was that a company was coming in to put up some new equipment shortly thereafter.

October 2016 Zimpeto Widows' Home Update

One day whilst chatting to Vovo (grandmother) Salimina, she took a liking to my necklace and asked me to buy one for her. I asked her when her birthday was (thinking I would give her one on her special day), and her response was “I don't know.” Then she realised why I was asking and suddenly said, “It's tomorrow!”  

It is actually quite common here that older people especially, have no idea of even what year they were born, and have no documents to help them. Since Vovo was definitely worth celebrating, we chose a date and gave her a birthday party!
