 Our last report told about the exciting new chapter in the life of our eight area churches.   A 26-member team ministered
in Mozambique, Africa. Mozambique, like Brazil, is a Portuguese speaking country, one of the poorest countries in the
world. Below are stats in regard to this poverty. Here are a few highlights of the team’s 27 days. The team arrived in Africa
on August 10 with over 3,500 pounds (1,600 kilos) of baggage! Six months prior to the trip, they began receiving specific
donations: school supplies, cooking utensils, 200 Study Bibles, 450 books on the life of Christ and pulpit preaching, Sunday
School curriculum, and books for the small institute in Maputo. All of the baggage arrived safely. The team was divided into
to five groups.

 Thirty-five years ago, when Vicki and I were struggling to begin our first church in the interior town of Casa Nova, I did not
imagine that we would see and participate in a project such as this. Not only did this particular church lead the project,
they sent the largest number of team members.
 The Mozambique team members are not the same as when they went on this mission; they seem to know Jesus a little
better. Having talked to them, I do too.
                                                                                 It’s still because of the Gospel,
