Evangelizing Children

Two missionaries, Rosaria and Simone, worked with some schools in Chimoio evangelizing children and teaching basic health care. They reached many children through this ministry. This was a door God opened for them along with the government to teach children at schools.

Social ministry

In 1999 we started working with a Christian NGO, Jesus Alive (now JAM) its base is in South Africa. Jesus Alive has been in Mozambique since 1985 supporting needy families and communities, with clothes and food. In time of floods they also donate clothes, medicine, canvas and tents for the homeless. This NGO works in 6 provinces of Mozambique and we have been in charge of Manica province for 9 years, distributing food in orphanages, hospitals, schools and the needy population.

Assisting the local church

We have assisted a local church in Chimoio since 1998 and have been able to witness the church's growth. During this time God has done great things in the lives of our Mozambican brothers. We have also given many courses in church for children teachers, biblical studies, youth and leadership. We have worked with Igreja Evangelica Missionaria de Mocambique and it has been a blessing for us.

Services in Cabeca do Velho Prison

We have had worship services in this prison since 2001 and we have a team of counsellors that have contributed in many areas like worship services, counselling, bible studies, etc. There's a school in the prison that was reconstructed by NHPM and the prisoners can now be alphabetized. We also have a carpentry school to train the prisoners. In the worship services we have about 250 prisoners present and many have accepted Christ as their Saviour. There's already a good number of baptized in our prison church.
