First impressions were like that of any other city until we started to encounter the bumpy roads on our way to the OMS compound at Machava which was to be our home for the duration of our stay.We are learning new things each day about the culture and desire to shine Christ’s light into dark situations.We are finding that many people with disabilities are not able to read as they have not been to school.wheelchair tyres always getting punctures or perhaps in need of maintenance, mobility issues etc.and this is when Helping Hands can offer to carry out any necessary repairs and also provide knee pads.‘Mãos Ajudando’ (Helping Hands) Step by Step the ‘Maos Ajudando’ (Helping Hands) ministry among disabled people has been developing.As foreign OMS missionaries, we have been working in partnership with Igreja Evangelica Palavra Viva so that this project might unfold in the hands of the Mozambican Church.Please pray for understanding and courage as we seek together to advance God’s Kingdom.Carlos recently gave up his job to partner with us in the development of this project through the Living Word churches.Pastor Carlos’ primary role is to help our Living Word church leaders and members to understand the vision and mobilize each church to participate in the project.We pray that every church catch the vision and touch the lives of numerous disabled people in their locality through the general witness of the church and specific involvement by volunteers visiting, befriending and helping them.
