Dia de muitas preguntas e respostas Deus e maravilhoso

4:20 PM Harts for Africa 0 Comments

Today was very wonderful for me, was with the shepherds of Nharichonga Nharichonga, The came with many questions about the subjects for May "the true shepherd and successful leadership". The leaders said it was some of the training that they listened to the most, provoking many questions.
 
One pastor got up and testified about leadership, he could not pay the cost of leadership and is leading because the top leaders chose me. Sometimes I run away from responsibility. In this course I have learned that as a leader is chosen by God there is a cost to pay, and I need to understand that cost.

One thing I found God reveals his truth to His children, please pray for me, I always want to be on the anvil for his questions, we need to please God our Lord

God bless

Chicken Agriculture project.

5:21 PM Harts for Africa 0 Comments

We have started a chicken project for the school. We hope to give the school an element of self funding which we can use to help with the secondary school, another benefit will be educating the students in caring and raising chickens to help them have a future source of income at home. The first chicks were purchased as day old chick and have now matured to be sold. The next lot of day old chicks are in the second house getting fat ready to be sold.
We are selling the chickens at a whole sale price to allow people in our community to buy and sell chickens creating an income for them. It is exiting to see the way this project has been embraced by everyone involved in our school, it is giving people a hope for the future.
One of the problems we have encountered is the difficulty of purchasing enough day old chickens. We are planning on our return to overcome this problem by hatching our own day old chicks.

ACC National Conference.

8:38 AM Harts for Africa 0 Comments

We have just spent the last week at our national conference. It was one big family reunion with close friends and people we haven't seen for many years everywhere. The speakers were truly inspirational! Ps Wayne Alcorn our National President spoke to each of us personally every session he was involved in, Rev Reinhardt Bonnke was at his best, Ps Steve Murrell the "accidental missionary" was on the mark and Ps Alun Davies launched our movement into a new day of international missions.
Friday was a chance for all involved in international work to be together and to be further inspired. Ps Wayne blessed us with a message before Ps Alun imparted vision, direction and unity.
As a result Kim and I have been inspired to work harder and happier in Africa. We have a great team with us and together we will see Mozambique discipled.

2011 Training

7:01 AM Harts for Africa 0 Comments

We are currently in Australia on home leave. The training of rural church leaders is continuing with Marcos training, with the aid of the MP3 recordings. This year we are training 200 church leaders in 9 locations.
We visit each group every month for a time of questions followed by an exam. We leave the next subject with the students to study in small groups, weekly, before our next visit.
It is impossible for us to mentor 200 leaders who live more than 300km apart. The mentoring is done by a number of strong local leaders who live close to each training group. By having the students meet together once a month it helps them to build relationships with other church leaders living close by and with the regional leader. This is helping to bring unity into the local churches and at the same time the training is clearing up many doctrinal disputes.
As many of the church leaders are unable to read, the audio bible and training material we supply is the only means they have to study the bible.
Included among the students are denominational leaders, new church planters, pastors and their spouses.
