In July, we received a visit from the Koenig family. Todd, Amy, and their two teenage sons, Andrew and J.L., stayed with us for two weeks to help teach and train and find out more of what Equip Mozambique is all about. "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 ...

“How is our life even real?!”

The Joy of Living in His Will 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 ...

Spring growth

Time Flies when You're Having Fun! Back to where we started (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 ...

Sewing School Graduation: “My life has already changed!”

The widows are celebrating their graduation from sewing classes. It's not a typical graduation. Instead of caps and gowns, there are brightly-patterned capulana dresses. Instead of fresh-faced youth, there are elderly Mozambican ladies. But the thrill of accomplishment is the same.   Some of the proud yet bashful graduates of the first sewing term! Uncertain about being in front of a crowd, the ladies are reserved at first. But then Maria grabs the microphone, gives a short testimony, and smilingly ...
