“Churches and also many pastors have struggled with the thought that no more church services have been allowed to take place. For many believers, the service is the only place where they get spiritual nourishment. Bible study alone or with the family is rare… But need is the mother of invention and many have now realised that you can also hear from God outside of the service. Ordinary church members were amazed when they realised that they could read God’s word themselves and pass it on to their families or small groups. As missionaries we try to encourage personal and family Bible reading through Bible study plans or regular text messages. We are encouraged by what God has done and is doing. Thank God for all those who are reading the Bible in their families for the first time and are learning a lot.”


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 and 17% of the country practice Islam. LEARN MORE
