Tim & Beth Wood
with Jonathan and Sarah
Since independence from Portugal in 1975 Mozambique was battered by civil war, economic woes and famine. Since peace in 1992 though, the country has developed one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Many are still unreached with the gospel & 17% of the country practice Islam.
Tim & Beth serve in a church called Vision in the Word of God, focusing on discipleship and teaching. Tim also teaches at Sofala Bible Institute on the BA degree programme. Beth works on translation projects in the Cindau language, producing Bible study material and children’s Sunday school lessons. Their passion is to encourage healthy churches and strong families.

Latest prayer points

In their latest prayer letter Tim & Beth mentioned the Advanced Studies Project that they manage, which supports students through studying at university. “This year all seven students supported by the project passed their final exams. In another six years we trust that two will be medical doctors. One is due to graduate next year as a nurse. Others will be teachers or engineers. We pray for and disciple the students. Please join us in praying that these young men and women will follow Jesus throughout their careers.”

“Students in the BA program at Sofala Bible Institute have to write and defend a final project in order to graduate. Both of us participated in the defence for students for whom we were the supervisors… Beth was the supervisor for Salésio… He analysed the functioning of Sunday schools in a small town 30 miles from Beira. Salésio feels equipped to lead seminars on promoting Sunday schools in rural areas. At his defence the director of the school made a commitment to partner with him in this endeavour. Pray that this project will have an impact for eternity by blessing children.”

On a visit to Machanga, Tim & Beth “…met Rebeca whom we hadn’t seen since she was a girl. We were sorry to learn that she had been a ciripwa, a girl ‘married’ to the spirit of a dead man and who serves as a slave in the dead man’s home. A ciripwa is a relative of the person responsible for the death of the dead man (according to the witchdoctor consulted). Although Rebeca was later ‘released’ to be married to a young man, they are separated and she is considered to belong to the family that enslaved her… Please pray for her to find freedom in Christ and for a resolution to her current situation.”
