Reconstruction Efforts After Cyclone idai

After cyclone Idai we met with our partners where we did a feasibility study in order to find ways to help victims. As we have noted, many of them lost their temples. This way, they still need a lot of help, as we could realize in their words. We have friends who run a cement factory in the area, and we have worked with them to secure discounts for churches that were leveled in the storm. Jon is also trying to import roofing materials from South Africa, as the high demand made the local prices skyrocket.

Media Training

When we asked the churches in the area what they needed help with, the resounding answer was Media training - many want to use sound systems or projectors or video but have no idea how to. So we started a 6 week media training in response to this need. Dino gives most of the lessons and Jon gave some of the more advanced lessons. We saw participants from over 15 churches arrive for the training, and they are very encouraged in their new found skills.

Children’s Literacy Seminars

Over half of Mozambique is under 16 years old. Most children have no access to books in their heart language. Where will they learn how to read? Early childhood literacy is key to a good education and a happy life. Think about it: if you come into school already knowing how to read and write, then school is a joy for you - your teacher loves you, your classmates are always asking you for help and you enjoy being there. Now think of school if you don't know how to read and begin to fall behind the rest of your classmates. These children are easily discouraged and it is ...

Financial Management

  We believe in developing the whole person, and as such we teach on many practical issues from a Biblical perspective. Bernardo has given various financial management seminars, both for the staff and at local churches. We seek to empower and influence believers with the skills they need to be godly stewards of their finances. Also, because most Mozambicans grow up with very little, they aren't taught how to steward what they do have. This lack of knowledge is even more pronounced for the ones that are the first in their family to go to university or to get a ...

John Maxwell Leadership Training

  In order to take the staff to the next level, we went through the 21 Laws of Leadership with our Mozambican staff in tandem with Cohen Architectural Woodworking's leadership team. The course lasted around 30 weeks and the experience was invaluable. We had to translate the content twice - once into Portuguese and once into the context of Mozambican life, but every member of the staff grew and was encouraged to press on in their own personal leadership and growth. It was also an amazing experience hearing CAW's leadership team talk about what they were learning ...
