Winter outreaches

We're beginning the next phase of our "winter" outreach schedule with some of the team arriving this weekend from Texas and Brazil. The rest will arrive next Friday. Scott's been busy getting students for our English camp that will start on the 20th. We're excited to see how God will use this to reach out to more people in our community.

This time will be filled with dramas, games, music, and fellowship. Ricardo, one of our future teammates moving here in January, will be leading worship at the camp, and we're so excited for him to be able to join us. Tonight, Scott will be going back to the village where the water well is being dug to show the Jesus film again, then he, along with several of the Christians will do follow up tomorrow.

Please pray for the people involved in these outreaches, both those here in Mozambique and the Americans arriving from Texas.

In the meantime, I'm busy with mid-terms for the kids. This year (4th grade) is the first year of testing for Mariah, so this is a new experience for her. I've come to appreciate teachers much more after my past year of home schooling and have decided that the teachers work even harder than the students!

I thought you might enjoy the fact that we are now trillianaires. Okay, well it does depend on what currency you are talking about, and the fact that you can't even buy a loaf of bread with a trillion Zim dollars. Zimbabwe is actually no longer even using their own currencies, so this bill isn't worth the paper that it's printed on. The ten cent bill used to be able to buy a GRAIN of salt, but you can see from the bill, that it's expired. Please pray for the people of Zimbabwe and especially our sweet orphans.

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to leave a comment on my last post for a chance to win a copy of Cranberry Hearts. I'm loving the book recommendations, so keep them coming!



  1. WOW, a trillion dollars...blows the mind. What can you buy for a trillion Zimbabwe dollars and what's the exchange rate?

  2. The bigest problem is that the Zim dollars can't even be used now as they only take hard currency like pounds, American dollars or Rand. So now it's all worth nothing. When it was viable, a trillion wouldn't even buy a loaf of bread as I understand.
