SNEAKY SNAKE GETS CAUGHT
I was walking near my dog pen when I saw a snake track that left the dog pen and returned onto itself after a few yards. It was fresh, cause I had walked that same area just a few minutes before. Meaning: snake is nearby. Calling my guard, I began to look for it when my mechanic yelled “STOP! It is in the fence!”.
Sure enough, while I’m looking on the ground, the snake went UP, tangling itself in the chain-link fencing trying to get away from me on the outside and the 2 dogs on the inside.
The video says it all as to what happened next. With a 99.9% poisonous rate in the snakes of this area, THE ONLY GOOD SNAKE, IS A DEAD SNAKE!
Weather is warming up, so 2 snakes in 8 days means time to be on the alert again. JOY! I am very grateful for sharp eyed workers and protective Angels.
Sneaky Snake lost the battle.
LOCAL MOTHER BIRTHS BABY AFTER SEVERE ACCIDENT
Martina, 3 months pregnant, was being given a lift by her Uncle on his bicycle when he lost his balance, causing them to have a severe fall. Martina suffered a fractured femur (right leg) which put her in hospital for months.
Her baby boy, Albertino, was born 6 months later in perfect health. The husband abandoned her during this time, leaving her 2 other boys, ages 6 and 8, with her sister, Virginia.
Due to her poor health, Martina’s breast milk dried up completely a few days ago, leaving 11 week old Albertino with nothing to eat. The local hospital sent her to us for assistance. Carried to our mission station on a friend’s motorbike, Martina walked with the aid of crutches to bring her baby to us.
Her sister, Virginia, has moved in with her as the 2 boys are too young to do all the household work, plus care for the infant’s needs. The family had only starvation foods available to them, as their farm produced nothing this year since no one was there to attend the fields.

Jesus sent our group to this area so that others might live and know
Him. YOUR LOVE GIFTS are providing the LOVE OF JESUS plus the milk and food this family needs so that they have a chance to regain what they have lost in the last year. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE.
PASTOR’S REPORT FOR JULY
SALVATIONS in our home churches throughout 2 Districts:
Our churches will be allowed to open later this month but only 50 are allowed to attend at once. I will be organizing the Pastors with large churches to have more than 1 meeting so that everyone can attend.
The BBC motorbike and bicycle teams are still restricted because the crowds of children they attract numbers more than 50. Keep praying for Mozambique as they begin a 3 month “reopening” of their infrastructure. Schools may not reopen until Oct. 1st if all goes according to plan.
