Dedrick's Departure and Women's Meeting

Dedrick's Departure

Our team had a nice lunch together this week to say goodbye to Dave and Ann Dedrick. They will be in the U.S. this next year to visit their family, friends, and churches. They hope to return to Mozambique next summer!

Would you pray that God would direct, use, and bless Dave and Ann as they are in the U.S. this next year?

Women's Meeting in Picoco

Women from four of the Evangelica Palavra Viva churches from the Maptuo province gathered together this week to sing, pray, hear a message given by one of the women, and share a meal.

Like the last meeting, I shared one of the Bible verses that Fatima and I had memorized with the women in Chamanculo so that all these women could also learn it - and they did!

"Hosi Xikwembu e Xikwembu lexinene, i khokholo hi siku ra khombo; xi hlayisa lava chavelaka eka xona." Nahume 1:7

("The Lord God is a good God, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust Him." Nahum 1:7)
