Our 34 Bible Leaders (monitors) from all over the country just arrived this weekend for their intensive training seminar which will last for the next 7 days. These leaders represent more than 400 pastors in their areas and more than 25 000 church members. Through all the teaching and sharing I will keep you updated. Some of these leaders also completed their 6 year theological training program and will receive their diplomas on the coming Sunday. Watch out for some highlights!
WOMEN AND THEIR MACHINES
Alta just distributed 5 sowing machines in the bush to several ladies that have been trained. These machines will be used to produce orphan clothing and will help the monitor to provide for her community and look after herself in the process. The aim of the program is to equip people deep in the bush and to start their own entrepreneurial projects and to train other ladies and gents in the bush.
ONE MORE BICYCLE TO GO
Bero is one of our sponsored students and is currently in grade 7. As you know money has been raised in Canada so that Bero could undergo an operation. Bero was injured in a fire when he was a baby. The grass roof of his hut was hit by a tracer bullet during the war and the house caught fire in the process. His dad saved his life but he was scared badly in the process. He received his bicycle from the mission so that he could get to school – which is about 15 km away.
A happy day for all!
With Bero is Joao Benjamin another student that is being sponsored by the mission. He is a second year student at the University of Maputo and is studying a B.Comm degree and concentrating on Business Management.
We have been privileged again to have received more visitors from Canada. This time Dwight’s brother and the family came for a visit. Their daughter Kim will be working with us for the next 6 months.
