 Important Dates and Information:

 

  • The God speaks Makhuwa Cycle Tour: Eman and his 4 brothers (with Heinrich in the support vehicle) takes on the 600 mile Skyline Drive plus Blue Ridge Parkway from Friday, August 25 to September 3 to raise funds for the Makhuwa Bible Translation. You can sponsor them and follow their progress on Instagram.  https://instagram.com/godspeaksmakhua?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==
  • The GOD Speaks Makhua Challenge -The Chestnut Team that went to Mozambique gave a report of their visit and the celebrations at the Muapula Mission. The need for funding to complete the next important phase to train Makhua pastors and elders is apparent and we decided to do everything in our ability to help the missionaries to finish their task without having to fret about fundraising. Donations can be made via www.muapulamission.co.za . If you’re willing, you can write your personal(anonymous) commitment towards the God speaks Makhua. Challenge on a card and drop it into the Prayer and Praise box next to the piano.
