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 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!

October 2016 Zimpeto Bible School Update

Below are two highlights from this term at the Zimpeto Bible School:

This school is 40% female; a huge step forward in a country where women are undervalued.

We teach that Jesus is our example of a leader. Jesus came to serve, not to be served. So our students happily and with joy help clean the church and dining area, help out in the kitchen and with general duties around the base.

This is a new model for many of our students. They adapt well. We are blessed to share with them the FULL ministry of Jesus.
