Sometimes people ask us, “Describe a normal day in your life.”
Follow us on our amazingrace, and you will see that there is nothing as normal as the unexpected. Directing a ministry needs strategizing and planning in advance, yet life happens upon us and here in Mozambique there is a lot of happening that needs rapid response.
We do not run alone. Everything we do is woven into the lives of Team members and field workers. What we throw out they catch and what we drop they pick up. Thank you Afrika wa Yesu Team….you are the BEST!
Packed and ready to continue on our amazingrace from Nacala back to Inhaminga.
Our amazing race is taking us on some different routes these days. The armed military escorts and big trucks travelling in the convoy are as much of a hazard as the ambushes. Filled with fear they race in and out of cars, dodging pot holes big enough to fit a wheel barrow in. Several accidents and injuries have been caused without a shot being fired. This, coupled with long delays and sometimes having to sleep on the side of the road while waiting for military escort, has caused us to search out the old roads abandoned years ago.
No time to tell the stories, so we are depending on each picture to speak the proverbial ‘more than a thousand words’.

It’s still dark!” I would respond, “I’m waiting for the morning.” Continue reading
Hello fellow Companions of our Amazingrace!
Glad this is not our load! They travelled from South Africa through Zimbabwe headed for Malawi through Mozambique. We found these wheels parked at the Zim/Moz border post. Hopefully they made it all the way through heavily flooded roads ahead. Continue reading
