(Early morning prayer time with the disciples)
I think it's taken me longer than usual to settle back into live here in Mozambique after so many months away, but we've finally got back into our school routine and are making progress there, so that has helped.
While the kids and I are working hard to finish up the school year (we will finish in August) Scott has already started meeting with his key disciples during the week for an intense study of the Word. They are also meeting weekly for prayer and fasting. It's exciting to see their passion and desire to learn and then share what they learn with others. Scott is also working on recording Oral Stories Bible for them that can be played on MP2 players for training of the disciples to go out and teach and for people who can't read.
The ECHO Project
We recently had our first official ECHO project board meeting via Skype and I'm so excited about the plans for the future. A pharmacy in South Africa gave us vitamins at cost. We will be giving them out primarily to pregnant and nursing women in the villages we work in as well as specific children and elderly who need them.
Want to get involved?
In connection with one of our supporting churches in Katy, Texas, we are putting together ten short videos about life in Africa that will be used for their summer mission program as their children's classes raise money for The ECHO Project and those we are ministering to here. We have several ideas we will be putting implementing in the next few months that can be used for children's program, youth groups, women's Bible classes, sororities, or anyone who is looking for a fun yet profound way to make a difference. I'll share with you more about this project in the weeks to come.
(Preparing vitamins to be distributed in the villages)
I'll be hosting a giveaway toward the end of the week. This will be one of three giveaways I'll be doing throughout the summer, so be sure and stop by!
