MOZAMBIQUE IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION

This is TURNING POINT WEEK…up to 27th Feb where huge decisions affecting the future of the nation will be instated.

THE FLAG OF MOZAMBIQUE – was adopted on 1 May 1983. It includes the image of an AK-47 with a bayonet attached to the barrel and is the only national flag in the world to feature such a modern rifle.

THE FLAG OF MOZAMBIQUE – was adopted on 1 May 1983. It includes the image of an AK-47 with a bayonet attached to the barrel and is the only national flag in the world to feature such a modern rifle.

The flag is based on the flag of the Mozambican Liberation Front (FRELIMO), the political party that has been in power since 1975.

The design of a flag represents what a nation stands for. In the face of this particular design boasting a gun and a Marxist star for more than 30 years, this is not a comforting thought. Green stands for the riches of the land. How rich is this land! Yet the people are of the poorest in the world. White stand for peace, yet there is no peace. Black represents the African continent…what a beautiful, magnificent continent filled with amazing people. Yellow symbolizes the country’s minerals, it is time for the nation to be built and developed out of its own enormous mineral wealth. Red represents the struggle for independence, yet tragically blood has not ceased to flow. The blood of the innocents involuntarily caught up in the fighting and killing cries out from the ground. The open book symbolizes the importance of education, yet the majority of children still do not have access to proper education. The hoe represents the country’s agriculture, but still there is little yield for women hoeing fields in the blazing sun with babies tied to their backs. The star symbolizes Marxism. THIS STAR MUST GO! It is time for the star of righteousness, justice and peace to shine in government, in city councils, in police departments, on the streets and in the lives of Mozambican men, women and children.

IT IS TIME FOR A NEW FLAG, TIME FOR A NEW MOZAMBIQUE!

While the situation in the nation is never far from our hearts, we continue with the work of the ministry, baptising believers and making disciples.

Yesterday we bought three pigs to live in the old goat pen which is actually the old mortuary. A big wall around keeps them secure. Here two of them are side by side, one looks an awful lot like a hyena!
