Evangelism materials and Bibles were distributed in more than 150 churches to more than 10 000 church members.

As 2021 came to a close, nearly ten thousand
Mozambicans received the best gift in time for
Christmas. The Word of God.
Mozambique has been devastated by two cyclones in
the last three years. Houses and churches washed away,
and precious Bibles were lost. As the Harvesters team
travelled around, they saw evidence of the destruction
everywhere. Bibles were given to many congregations that
no longer have a building but are still faithfully meeting
together to worship. Please pray for the many pastors who
are still traumatized from the events.

Handing out Arabic Bibles to conflict areas in Northern Mozambique. Our network of Churches in Mozambique will be responsible for the distribution of scarce Bibles.

Shona and Portuguese Bibles are difficult to source
for the local pastors and are extremely expensive. “In fact,”
explains Francois Rauch, Global Church Planting Engineer,
“it’s cheaper to train a pastor than to put a Bible in the
hands of a pastor.”
Thanks to our partners – Biblica, One Hope and Living
Ball – as well as the support of our donors, Harvesters was
able to deliver children’s ministry materials, evangelism
tools and 10,000 Bibles to Mozambique! In our largest
Bible distribution ever, the team visited 59 churches in
10 days.

Developing the Next Generation
“When you ask the pastors here in Mozambique what’s
the biggest need for them, they all unanimously say the
children’s ministry,” says Thinus Botha, Regional Director
for East Africa. Sixty percent of Mozambique’s population
are under the age of 24 and are a focus point for the
church. One Hope provided teaching materials and will be
training children’s workers in many Harvesters
church plants.
A ‘Reach for Life’ New Testament for youth, and a fun
Living Ball decorated with the Gospel were also handed
out. The youth Bible is packed full of extra resources
and lessons inside its pages. Plus, the Living Ball is a
wonderful tool for evangelism because “sport plays such
an important role within the Mozambican culture,”

Transmitting Good News
Harvesters also sent 280 Transworld Radios to the
northern churches. “The great thing about a Transworld
Radio is, of course, it brings only the Good News. So, if you
turn it on, you’ll get their amazing Gospel content,” says
Francois. In recent years, northern Mozambique has seen a

lot of conflict and horrendous ISIS attacks. Pray that these
resources will saturate the area with Good News of hope!
“Now we are trusting God for a great impact,” declares
Thinus. “We can testify that amidst the conflicts and
the disruptions, Jesus Christ is building His church and
the gates of hell shall not prevail against Him. Great is
His faithfulness. Hallelujah! Thank you for your constant
prayers and support in this great work.”
