Working with Cassava and Cane Sugar

This week we were invited to participate in the course that teaches you to work with sugar cane and cassava. We taught the national to use recipes with sugar cane and cassava to help their diet. This course is being taught in a town 60km from the town of Chimoio called Vanduzi. A project done by MIAF and Pronasce.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Ps. 46:1

Greetings in the Lord. It has been two months since we arrived from Brazil and things are finally settling down. Regarding work, we have started services at the local prisons on Saturday mornings and it has been a blessing. We have seen God working tremendously in every service, many inmates have testified what God has done in their lives. We began two bible classes on Saturday afternoons and two on Sunday afternoons. The students are very excited about this and for being in a prison is great blessing. We have also begun work in our local church and last month we were able to start Sunday school involving the whole church. This for us is a great victory.

Future projects:

We are praying to start a Bible school to train pastor and leaders here in our house, we did this a few years and now want to start again. I have also began teaching at a local bible school but some leaders have asked me to teach other courses and so we'll begin doing so.
We have a big piece of land here in Chimoio and have been thinking about starting a project with children from communities. But we need to build an infrastructure because there is nothing there. We want to start telling children stories and playing games and sports.
We were also invited by the Prevention Against Drugs cabinet to develop some actions together with the teens from the province. But for that we need to create good educational materials and audio visual.
Starting in August we will begin our trips to the districts giving seminars and promoting lectures to pastors and leaders. We also want to use these opportunities to show the film "The Life of Jesus", to the communities. We have a missionary friend that has the sound and visual devices and will let us borrow.

Keep praying for us, for our children and our projects. For God to give us clear direction over all things.

Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. Ec. 11:1

Grace and peace of the Lord. I hope you're all in good health as are we.
Time really goes by fast, it has been a month since we returned to Mozambique. Things are going back to normal after very tumultuous few days. We arrived in Mozambique fine after a scarce. We left Brazil at the same time that the Air France 447 plane that fell into the sea. We passed through terrible turbulence but we praise God nothing happened. When we arrived in Mozambique our luggage had stayed behind in South Africa but we got them back a few days later. When we got home we stayed two weeks without a fridge because we had to replace its motor. One part of the car's alternator broke and we haven't been able to replace it yet. Our computer also burnt its motherboard and we haven't found another to replace it. We know that this the attack from evil trying to discourage us but our God is victorious.
Moving on, our first service at the prison had a big spiritual move and after the preaching we made an appeal and 42 inmates received Christ as their Lord Saviour. It was gratifying to see so many inmates coming to Christ.
This year we have great challenges ahead, we will start giving seminaries and conferences in some provinces and districts. We will also help a government program against drugs giving lectures to teens in the schools and communities. Rosaria will also start her work with children in schools. Please we really need your prayers in this new stage of our lives.

I would take this opportunity, to thank each of you friends and brothers, for helping us with our ministry. Only God can give back everything you have given us, all your prayers, contribution and encouragement making possible this project that is in the Heart of God. I can only say from the bottom of our hearts, Thank you.

Prayer requests:

- For direction and protection from God
- New strategies for work
- For our daughters
- For the new challenges to be faced
- For our funds that are not yet complete.
