The TV news stated that record numbers of people attended church services over the Easter weekend. They gave the reason that the increasing cost of living is causing people to seek God. It is a shame that many people don’t think of God unless they need Him. How often we pray for things to go well for our friends and family when we could ask that they find God in their trouble. Will good times cause them to ignore the fullness of living in Christ? The truth is people who don’t know God, may only see His goodness when He helps them through a crisis.

The unwise ask ‘how can there be a God with the world so messed up?’ The question is how messed up would the world be without Him? We should pray that our friends and family come into relationship with Jesus, what ever it takes. It is only then they will truly enjoy and understand life’s purpose and meaning.

We have spent the past week at a leader’s summit hosted by Kings Christian Church in Buderim. To help other people grow we must first grow ourselves. All the speakers brought fantastic messages and it was a privilege to sit and hear great ministry. The past week has in itself made up for the delay in our return to Mozambique.

On the visa, we hope to have some news soon.

God Bless, and have a great week.

Jesus is bold

God is a risk taker. He took a risk when He left us, man, the task of telling the world about His son Jesus. Jesus who died for our sins so that we can personally know God, the creator of Heaven and Earth. Jesus is often shown only as a quiet, gentle man when in fact he was bold and brave when it was needed.
Joh 2:15 So he took some rope and made a whip. Then he chased everyone out of the temple, together with their sheep and cattle. He turned over the tables of the moneychangers and scattered their coins. Joh 2:16 Jesus said to the people who had been selling doves, "Get those doves out of here! Don't make my Father's house a marketplace."
In this passage Jesus upset quite a few people yet he was bold enough to make a difference.
We are God’s plan to take the news of salvation to the world. All we can do is the small part we have been given. Jesus also knew how and when to be patient. While we are looking forward to retuning to Mozambique it is our time to be patient. It can be hard to wait but knowing that God will have His way and no person can stand against Him is a great comfort.

Can we make a difference?

There are many ways we can help the people of Africa. We can set up orphanages or schools to help children have a better life. We could feed the masses who don’t have enough food to live a healthy life.

Jesus has told us to make disciples, why? One reason is because it will cause people to take care of others. We are just one family and we can’t do everything in Mozambique that needs to be done. But we are devoted to the community leaders; to disciple and encourage them to take care of the needs of their own people. Mozambicans will make the difference in Mozambique, as more people know the heart of Jesus, the better off each community will be. We believe in a top down approach, by influencing the leaders you can change a community. As people turn from following Jesus their communities fall apart, each person becomes me centered.

Can we make a difference? We sure can! God has not given us an impossible mission, but He is faithful and true. Let’s work together to improve the lives and well-being of many Africans.

Please pray for us as we carry out the vision that is in our hearts.
Thank you and God Bless

Deadly Water

People are good at making science fit into their perception of the world. Back when the western world was in the west and the eastern world was to the east it was common knowledge that the world was flat. It was considered stupid to think differently. Now in the western world evolution has the same hold in science. You must be crazy to believe God actually created the earth and all that is in it, even if the evidence points toward it being fact.
In Africa there are many common beliefs that are considered fact, such as evil spirits cause sickness, what are germs?

Cholera is currently affecting people in Mozambique, many are dying from drinking unclean water. If you believe evil spirits cause sickness why stop drinking unclean water? Ignorance is not bliss, it is deadly. We have to pass on the knowledge we have to enable all people to live a long healthy life, set free.
