Nora Binda

Nora Binda is a leader and intercessor who puts her prayers into action. She was instrumental in founding the Restoring Hope sewing school, as she was at that time working to help several widows in her community and wanted to find a more sustainable way to do so. Her compassion and love for the poor is inspiring, and she brings great perspective to the board on how to reach them.

Lucas Amosse

Rev. Lucas Amosse is the pastor of the United Church of Christ in Beira, and he has been praying and working for inter-church unity for many years. He is one of the leaders of the Christian Counsel of Mozambique, so his work for the gospel has had a national impact. His many years of ministry experience are a great asset to the board of directors, and we seek his wisdom in many decisions the organization needs to make. He is also one of our partners in contributing teaching material for the Fountain of Life app, and he even took part in recording some of the Bible into the local language of Ndau that is featured on the app.

Big changes with Equip Mozambique!

It has been a busy few months here in Mozambique! We are continually blown away by God's goodness and faithfulness. Read on to see what He's been up to in our little corner of the world! When we rented a 3-bedroom apartment to be our first office location, we only had 2 full-time workers plus us 3 missionaries, and the space was more than sufficient. Then our team grew… and grew… and grew! Now we have 18 people plus the sewing school which had 10 students at a ...

Mozambique Through Western Eyes

"Last year we prayed about doing a family mission trip and contacted different people we knew [doing mission work] throughout the world...Mozambique, with Jon and Carla, is where we felt God was leading us to spend some time." During their time here, the Koenig family taught a variety of workshops for members of our partner churches. Amy taught a crochet class, and showed her students how to make yarn out of old t-shirts (which are readily available in the market and very cheap; about $0.25 each). Todd, J.L., and Andrew offered math tutoring in the ...

“How is our life even real?!”

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10) When I (Carla) was in Bible college, one teacher led us through an exercise called SHAPE* where we explored how God had uniquely made each one of us for a great purpose. We learned that our gifts, passions, and abilities were not an accident, but a masterpiece design to fit into the puzzle of God’s Kingdom. Lately, Jon and I look at each other and wonder aloud, “How is our life even real?!” We get to use our hobbies, interests, passions, and things we ...

Spring growth

(Carla here :-) When I married Jon in 2007, I quickly applied for a new passport with my new last name, knowing we'd need it soon. Now here we are, coming up on our 10 year anniversary, and that passport is expiring full of travels--so full, in fact, that we had to add extra pages 3 times to contain all the visas!--and each page tells a story of God’s faithfulness, protection, and provision. In April we made a trip to Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, where we visited the US embassy to apply for new passports for Jon and me. It was so interesting to stay at the Iris Ministries base where our Mozambican journey first began in December ...

Our little travel champs! Kyran and Jariel's reality includes lots of suitcases and airports. We are glad they enjoy it all!   One thing we were excited to share with people is that the audio Bible app was launched in August and it already has over 13,000 downloads! It has created quite an impact in Mozambique, so much so that we are looking to add languages and resources to gradually reach the rest of Africa by the end of next year. Everyone who has seen it says it’s revolutionary, and ...

There and Back Again: A Reinagels Tale 🌍 1/2

We were invited to speak at 4 churches that hold a special place in our hearts. It was exciting to be able to share in person what we’ve been up to and how people can partner with us, even from afar. The prayers and support from these churches and many individuals in them are what keep us going, and we are grateful for each one of them. ...
