|VISITORS COMING TO BALAMA THIS WEEK
Two of our USA friends, Dave and Larry, will be arriving this week to teach and take a look at our current programs.
The whole BAWANA program came into “being” here because of Dave’s vision for our children in Mozambique.
Dave introduced me to Larry, and the vision became a reality a year later.
Larry began training our Pastors and BBC groups over 5 years ago in the BAWANA games technique for child evangelism.
Their labors have produced much fruit (as shown in the next article below). We are very excited to host them so they can see their vision in action.
Tuesday and Wed. our Pastors will be meeting with Larry for Bible training. He’ll be teaching interactive ways to reach out with the Gospel to all ages. Thursday and Friday they will assist in food distributions and at a BAWANA games program in a remote village.
Early Saturday (19th) our Bawana leaders will be in at the MANGO TREE CHURCH in Mavala to host the 2nd annual BAWANA GAMES COMPETITION between 4 remote villages.
6 a.m. Sunday, they will do the same in Balama with 4 teams from that area. God’s Word along with candy, cookies, and loads of fun awaits all those who attend the 2 competitions!
Tell you all about it in 2 weeks. There will be NO BLOG next weekend due the above programs.
