Dear Friends and Family,
How are you? Our family is doing great. We so enjoyed our time in the States and Europe. Visiting with all of you friends, family, and churches was a blessing beyond description!
We have been back in full swing in Mozambique for a while now. Brian is back to preaching at our mother church, overseeing seminars, and working on various projects. Our Church in a Day (C.I.A.D) program continues strong. Currently fabricating three new churches, we plan on placing them in strategic areas in the Sofala Province within the next thirty days.
Our C.I.A.D. in the community of Macharote is doing great. The once little church of old widows has now grown to over 100 members. If you haven’t seen our C.I.A.D video, please follow the link shown below.
Lorena is in the midst of teaching the youth from several churches how to do a children’s program, for Sunday school and community outreach. Next week they will do it for the first time on their own.
(Above) Teaching and learning games with village kids. Oral cultures, like Mozambique, learn best through drama, music, games, chants, stories, and activities.
Important upcoming seminar and recording project: Next week we are having a large week-long seminar with Rick Leatherwood, a missionary from Ethiopia. He will be teaching his “Oral Bible” – 70 key Bible stories. Several hundred pastors will be attending. Afterwards, we will be recording these stories and putting them on solar audio units and micro-SD chips which can go in their phones. Please pray for everyone’s health (as malaria is an epidemic here), safe travels (pastors coming from many provinces on bad roads and unsafe public transportation), receptive hearts and minds, and success in this recording project. Thank you!
The Wood Family
