Progress, Village Birthday, and Partnership

After 5 years of working with the local government, I praise God for the official "certidao" that has been issued for the house land!

I appreciate prayer for the ongoing process of legalization for the house and church/training center land.

The village of Quissico, which overlooks the beautiful lakes that border the Indian Ocean, just celebrated its 44th Birthday.

The military band paraded through the village center.

And the local police marched behind the band.

The local chiefs and leaders came out for the big day.

I invited Carlos, Tina and baby Josue from Maputo to be here, and partake in one of the local specialties - grilled pork.

The next day Carlos shared an encouraging message with the local church in Cala.

After the service, we gathered together with the church group from Nyamajeho to learn from God's Word in our discipleship Bible study.

What a blessing to partner with my dear brothers and sisters from the province of Maputo as they step out of their comfort zone to visit and serve here.

I praise God for all that He is doing in Inhambane!
