Follow the journey …

I seem to keep on saying it constantly ……. ‘time is flying’!   The last three months seemed to have disappeared somewhere.  I struggle to keep track through the distances travelled and even the wonderful people that crossed our paths the last few months.  After extensive training programs we received 50 amazing transformational agents from […]

Orphan delight!

It’s a few hours before 2013 greets us all with – hopefully not a bang.  A great year full of challenges, surprises (good and bad) … lots of smiles, laughter, joy and happiness.  And a few tears too.  BUT that is all very normal.  But all of that said – I love sharing good news. […]

Green mangoes for porridge!

It was early morning when I heard my bell ringing.  The familiar sound of the bell was nothing new – in fact it sometimes annoy me, to be very honest.  When it rang non-stop for the third time I knew it was urgent as everyone knew I do respond …. within a minute or two. […]

Eating well …. thanks to you!

‘It’s dry …. “bone dry”‘, I hear someone say from the back of my vehicle as we jump through another pothole.  And it was a scorcher of a day.  40 Degree Celsius my barometer read as I leave home.  ‘Seize the day’ ….. I remember some intellectual said … but today was more that just seizing the […]

Orphan bliss

The annual orphan Christmas party must be one of those highlights that no dare miss.  This year was no exception as the kids were treated like … well … it was the ‘end of the world’!  Let me not go there:  People made Apocalypse jokes like there is no tomorrow.  We take special care when it […]

On behalf of every baby, child, widow, orphan, woman, pastor, sick person, lonely soul, battered individual, sad, happy and overwhelmed Mozambican …. THANK YOU so much for caring and BEING Jesus for someone in 2012.  The truth is that no one will ever know Jesus Christ – the Hope of the world, if we don’t […]

Love is in the air ……. everyday!

This week was a hectic week. It started with seriously bad internet service. We are connected via satellite in the bush via generator and even sometimes connected via batteries. Did I mention our service provider sits in the UK? So most of the time we pray that the signal they throw […]

“I cannot sleep”!

It all started a few years ago.  We met Sinambale Paradzai when he visited us on the mission base.  He had a warm passion to study teaching.  He wanted to be a teacher so bad …. he would do anything to make it happen.  With the long list of people in Mozambique trying to get […]

Christmas through an orphan’s eyes

Living in Mozambique as an orphan is a challenge like everywhere else in the world.  In the developed world many orphans are held in state institutions – cold places, shades of grey places – survival is the key and if your lucky you could be placed with a family for Christmas … maybe.  I understand […]

Christmas orphans

Inspiration!  That is what I experienced again when looking at the photos of our annual Xmas Orphan party.  Being an orphan is enough for many dealing with the adjustments and the emotional turmoil.  Being a Xmas orphan in Mozambique has various other problems.  Orphans here will have to deal with severe poverty in the process.
