God blessed OMS in Mozambique with a 10-acre plot of land in Maputo six years ago. On the plot there are 9 housing units for missionaries who serve in various ministries.
I lived on this property for several years while I was in Maputo and my dear colleagues surprised me with a party to say goodbye when I moved away to Inhambane.
Here were my OMS colleagues (silly style) at the end of last year when my mom was visiting.
This plot of land is also is home to Christian Academy in Mozambique, a k-12 school for missionary children, where I taught when it was in the city for the first 2 years I was in Mozambique. The school now has space for more classrooms, drama productions, and playing fields.
The property is also used for a wonderful community sports outreach to local children, called Chosen Generation.
However, in that past several months there have been a series of serious and large scale thefts from the property which has shown the need for a secure concrete boundary wall.
