Praise God that Claudia Middendorf has firm plans for vacation in October. Please pray that all would go well, for good health, protection and good physical, mental and emotional rest. Pray that she will return from her vacation refreshed. 

Claudia Middendorf serves as Unit Leader for AIM in Mozambique. Please pray for Claudia, as the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that she has been unable to take annual leave and have a proper break. Pray that in God’s timing some time off will be possible, and in the meantime that her rest days will give her the refreshment she needs.

“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.”

Claudia has been involved in the relief efforts after Cyclone Idai landed in Mozambique early last year: “I talked with Pastor Marcos about our desire to help individual families in need of a new roof… Within a short time he identified four single women in his community who needed help and four families outside the community. We agreed that I would come to his church on the Sunday… At this service two guests of the district leadership of the congregation were also present…. one of the guests was asked to preach… He spoke [from 1 Corinthians 12 and 13] about the fact that we are one body and should care for each other accordingly in love… Then Pastor Marcos stood up and told the congregation what I had asked him to do, namely to help those people who were too poor to get back on their feet alone after Idai. After careful consideration he came up with four families whom he now wanted to introduce. He called the women individually and asked the congregation if they knew the woman. Yes! Was she a member of the congregation? Was she a parishioner? Is she poor or rich? Poor! Is it right that she should be helped? Is it right that she should receive help? Together, to the cheers of the congregation, Pastor Marcos and I gave the women their money… Through this church we have been able to help 29 families so far.” Praise God for how he is providing for those affected by Idai through this church, and please keep praying for relief for those who have lost so much.


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
