Greetings in the Lord’s name
We are well, and looking to our Lord Jesus who is the captain of the battle. The COVID-19 restrict measures has been reduced, and we have resumed our assembly meetings nationwide. We are looking forward to picking up where we stopped the discipleship project, due to COVID-19. Pray with us that the spiritual need may be met in this fast-growing church.
The coastal town of Palma, which was under attack by insurgents linked to the Islamic State has been liberated by Rwanda forces and Mozambique army. The key northern port of Mocimboa da Praia port where al-Shabab, the rebels used for launch series of attacks across the oil fields has been taken over by the government. At present one of our Elder from Maputo church is working in that province from the security wing.
Thousands of displaced people are in desperate need of food, shelter, and hearth service. Homes has been burnt down, while churches turned into ruins. So much destruction, killings, you wonder if such people or religious group are normal.
Children’s work, “greater works than these shall you do” …. Children are good, though we have no space more children come we cannot turn them back. We no longer meet on Sunday; the joyful noise has been brought on Saturday. Pray with us for the completion of the extension of church hall.
Each week there are struggles with the youth group. Putting them back to school has been a great challenge. Many under our care has shown interest in school and in the things God. We teach them, we discipline them when they go wrong, they are getting involved in the church activities.
“God is faithful and just to forgive your sins”. Some of the boys abandon school and run away from being question, getting entangled with street life, while girls getting pregnant. They disappear into the community, we follow-up and tell them that, they are not the worst sinners.
Can anything good come from this community? The answer is yes, there is nothing to hard for the Lord our God. From Sunday School to university. Pray with us, that they should be employed. The majority will be graduating this year.
“Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus”. They love the Lord, from Sunday School to university. Delayed in graduating and to get jobs due to pandemic. Whatever standpoint we may be, if our faith is to be genuine, we must not neglect those who are struggling in whatever way. I’m challenged every day.
Thank you for you continues support for us. You have prayed, and you have given, no wonder we are able to say, “if God is for us who can be against us….”.
