Working with the churches of the Portuguese speaking countries of Africa, and in Portugal.
One of the greatest needs within many churches in countries such as Mozambique is in the training and equipping of the church leaders and their congregations, so that they can have a greater knowledge and a better understanding God’s Word - The Bible. This is done in a number of ways, such as with the provision of Bibles, seminars, and Christian literature. We prepare and distribute Bible studies, while at the same time we use additional material that has been prepared by other missions for Africa and Portugal. Our aim is to help equip church leaders and their congregations, so that those local churches can help make a positive difference in their local communities; reflecting in those communities Christ’s light, love and concern for all people.
Bibles study courses - For some years we have arranged Bible study courses in Mozambique that can be used by rural churches. These courses are simple, and the churches are able to run the courses themselves. They are administered and distributed by a member of our team called Inácio. He is seen in the photo on the right as he goes out to rural churches. The fruit that we see from this work is very encouraging.
Some of the material we use is prepared and printed by our team in Beira from where it is distributed . The photo on the left is of our team that is based in Beira, there are:
