DIXON JOINS OUR MISSION FAMILY
Dixon became very ill last week with a deadly type of amoebic dysentery. His mother is not well herself, and her weakness made it difficult for her to walk the 6 miles from her village to our mission station to ask for our medical help. ONLY BY GOD’S GRACE did Dixon survive 4 days with bloody diarrhea that should have killed him within 1 day! Supernatural protection is most evident here, as God’s protective angels surround that child, thanks to your many prayers. After a full course of medications, Dixon has recovered fully and is back to his cheery self again!
The mutual decision was made to move the entire family into one of our widow’s homes at our base for close observation and protection. With the mother’s unexplained weight loss and extreme weakness, Dixon’s health as well as the lives of his brother and sister are at high risk. This week, we will organize a medical consult for the mother to determine what is causing her problem. Please keep her in your prayers.
GIRL’S DORM AWAITS HEALTH INSPECTORS
Eric installed the solar panel and battery yesterday, and all that is left is to paint the doors and around the window frames. I’m working with Social Services and the health inspector in hopes that we can finalize their inspection this week and actually move them in by next weekend. Pray for favour, as the rainy season is upon us and we need to get them into the house before the mud gets too deep!
BOY’S DORM is in the final stages of being painted and the windows/doors being mounted. We hope to have them in by Christmas.
NAMARA CHURCH was inaugurated today, as the local members built it and our carpenters blessed them with the tin roof. NACACCA CHURCH received it’s tin roof last week, so those members are very happy to have a safe place to worship during the rainy season.
MIRACLE IN NACACCA
Last week, a group of people from the western part of Nacacca came to Pastor Sufu’s home asking for help. They’d heard about the healing miracles that Jesus is doing, and wanted prayer for a friend who was very ill with a very distended abdomen (possible liver failure). Pastor Sufu went to this man’s home with a large crowd following. He prayed for the man but nothing happened at that time. The crowd left. But the next morning, the man was sitting up and EATING when he hadn’t been able to do that the day before! The word spread like wildfire, because everyone thought this man was about to die. He’s making a rapid recovery, and we may not know what was really wrong till we meet the Lord himself. The WORD WORKS, and I encourage ALL OF YOU to pray for the sick where ever you encounter them. YOUR HEALTH is irreplaceable. Never take it for granted. I praise God daily for my health and His healing power that can flow through all believers as they pray. My heart’s desire is for a greater anointing so that ALL the sick are healed as we lay hands on and pray for them.
ABOUT OUR TEAM MEMBERS
Elizabeth Rumball from Sydney, Australia, has come to assist with our children’s programs for the next 4 weeks. It’s her first Mozambique experience, so she is working hard to learn some key Portuguese and Makua phrases. The children love her and get a big laugh at her attempts as talking to them in their language. Welcome aboard, Elizabeth!
Eric Dry will go on holiday to South Africa on Dec. 15th. Keep us all in prayer as “us girls” will have to hold down the fort while he is gone.
MY 2013 SPEAKING TOUR SCHEDULE IS ALMOST COMPLETE If you would like me to speak to a church or group, please contact me immediately as I still have 2 open dates.
