I had the privilege of partnering with my colleague Sharon, in a small way (my skills in this area are small indeed), helping to start a new craft/discipleship ministry with the pastor's wives in Maputo.
Sharon hard at work teaching the ladies how to make a cloth purse
The women will meet once a month to study the Word of God, pray together, and learn manual skills to help support their families.
Here are the ladies with the new purses...yes, I had a lot of help to make mine :)
I also had the privilege of giving a special baby blanket to a pastor's wife, Luisa, on behalf of a special group of women in the US called "God's Arms" which knits items to give to those in need.
Here is Luisa with her new baby, Daniel, wrapped in his lovely new blanket...she says, "thank you!"
The Vice President of Theological Education in OMS, Bill Vermilllion, has been visiting Mozambique this week and we visited the church in Intaka where he preached and I translated.
From English to Portuguese to Changana the Word was preached :)
Two precious little ones :)
I will be traveling to work in Inhambane this next week and would appreciate prayer for wisdom, strength, and protection.
