Welcome to our website!

 
The greatest missionary is the Bible in the mother tongue. It needs no furlough and is never considered a foreigner. - William Cameron Townsend
WELCOME!
This website is primarily dedicated to the Bible translation work done in Muapula, Niassa, Mozambique, but it also provides a glimpse into some of the other wonderful ministries and activities there.

                                                                
              GOAL FOR 2021: $ 22 000
      OUTSTANDING AMOUNT: $ 5 885 
 
2021 - THE INAUGURATION YEAR OF THE MAKHUA BIBLE!!
   
 

WHAT'S THE LATEST???

I received the “Advance copy” of the Makhua Bible from Nanjing China two days ago. This is the final product and it looks beautiful! Chekc some of the pictures below!
 
We have made travel arrangements to visit Muapula (6 – 13 October) to be present for the inauguration of the Makhua Bible in Muapula. We suspect that the gathering will be limited due to Covid regulations there, but even so, we want to be there. We will need LOTS of prayers for the travels to and from Mozambique and the time there!
  
As mentioned in the previous update, Vanessa and I were hoping to visit the US in December, but South Africa is still on the USA's red list as far as travelling is concerned. If visiting in December does not work out, then we are looking at a more viable option Lord willing in March/April next year.
 
There are many more things to share, but I want to keep it brief so that more people will read this. Please pray for all the technical challenges we have in paying Amity in China for shipping etc. Please also pray for the trip to Muapula I mentioned. And please remember us and especially the Makhuas in your prayers.
