Greetings in the lovely name of our loving Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for your faithful support! We are amazed at God's grace and goodness to each one of us, and to the work in Mozambique. The word is getting established more and more in the lives of believers, young men and women are zealous for the Lord.

We are so grateful to the Lord that Paulo doing second year in the college is being supported by Chatsworth Assembly in Durban South Africa. Paulo is among the 10 young men and women in high school less privileged and yet the Lord has touched them, they are excelling in education and in the walk with the Lord.

Praise the Lord for a blessed seminar on "No Apologies" (abstinence) sponsored by Westville Assembly in Durban South Africa. The seminar was an eye opener to unbelieving government teachers they saw and they heard what the people of the Book with courage are able to influence communities and schools.

Praise the Lord for HUGE progress over the past 6 months at the mission centre! Three more toilets have been built, 20 school tables have been manufactured, one more orphan house has been constructed, equipment for gardening has been provided, Chicken run is in place! Please keep praying for funds to be able to buy 200 chicken layers and paint for painting the class rooms! Thanks to all the volunteer teams who have come through and work together with us! Many thanks to believers who have adopted orphans.

Praise the Lord for discipleship class being taken by Elder Coboio on Saturday afternoon, Sunday 10th August Paulo began teaching adult Sunday school, a good number of believers are on Bible correspondence courses.

Praise the Lord for INCREDIBLE donations of toys and new and good quality used clothes from believers from Durban for many of our orphans! What a joy to see a little one transformed into a princess - and the way the children's faces shine when they drop their rags on the sand to put on a lovely new outfit. Pray for Grace and Shula who work with orphans and patients of HIV- that we will not become overwhelmed at the magnitude of the task, or the setbacks, but will see the difference that the love of God is making in each individual child's life. 

Praise the Lord for six orphans who have been living with us in the past two weeks, three boys were abandoned Albeto, Moses, and Pedro, by the mother who is HIV/AIDS patient. Another set is Joseph 12, and the sister Xica 10, are in our custody both parents died 4 years ago. The third set is Benjamin 5 and the sister Mary 3 the mother died three years ago. Benjamin the five year old boy is HIV positive. Please pray that we may come up with an hostel for the orphans who cannot be kept in the community.

Thanks again for all who came, worked, played and gave over this June, July, period! Busy but really blessed!

May the Lord bless and keep each one of you!
