BALAMA UPDATE FROM ERIC DRY AND LINDA STANLEY IN MOZAMBIQUE
While I’ve been sharing God’s vision with all of you in the USA, Eric, Linda, Monica and Joy were working faithfully to manage our ministry and orphan programs in Mozambique.
This is the latest news sent this week.
CHRISTIAN RADIO EXPANDS TO A 3RD LANGUAGE!
You can tell the Evans Baptist Church, LA, that the Maconde language programs began broadcasting today (March 9) at 3pm. Please thank them from all the Maconde speaking people in the Balama district. This is the first time EVER that MANY of them will hear the TRUTH about JESUS. These programs are in the form of stories acted out by several persons, it sounds really good.
Radio Mpakhira Onhupi (Eric’s radio name) is now broadcasting seven (thirty minute) programs a week in THREE languages in two counties. God is moving in amazing way’s! ($10/30 minute program is all it costs to get the truth about Jesus to over 230,000 people.)
BELOW IS LINDA’S LATEST NEWSLETTER A LATEST PHOTO OF DIXON (the malnourished baby featured in our 2012 DVD disk).
He is now healthy at 7 months of age.
When we rescued Dixon in November, 2011, he weighed only 7 lbs. at 4 months of age (emaciated and near death).
Thanks to your love gifts, we can buy life saving baby formula and food so that Dixon as well as 100’s of other malnourished babies are saved each year.
Blessings and great THANKS from our Balama team,
Bush Bunny Brenda
Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ
Mozambique is continuing to have rain and will have for another month. It breaks my heart to see so many babies sick from Malaria and so many other diseases which seem to multiply in the rainy season. We loose more babies to Malaria and diarrhea than anything else and it seems like it is more this year. Perhaps it’s the same but it seems to be more to me.
Baby Dixon came to us shortly before I arrived and Brenda fought to keep him alive. He is now in our baby program and is a happy and healthy baby.
Look at that smiling little face!
Praise God for the little Dixons that are all helped through our Baby project.
We have been able to visit a few of the village churches since I returned. I love going to the outer villages to preach the word and see God moving among the people.
Two girls from South Africa named Monica and Joy have been here helping us with many things and have been a blessing to the people. They both sing so they have been helping to record the radio programs as well.
As of this week Eric has expanded the radio ministry from 3 times a week in Balama to include another 3 times in the larger town of Montepeuz. The gospel is now broadcast 6 times a week in Portuguese and Makua on 6 different days.
Today is prayer walk day. Once a week I go with the ladies prayer walk from the church and we walk to homes in the village to pray for people who are sick. Today we also will visit a family who had a death in the family to pray with them.
Everyday comes with new opportunities to show the love of God around us. One of my Favorite songs is “Wont you be my love” by Mercy me. It speaks to my heart about the love we are supposed to take to a broken world.
All we have to do is look around us to see hurting people no matter where we are.
Your mission field may be next door or where you work. Don’t miss the opportunity God has placed in your life to minister to others.
Love in Christ
Again, our most heartfelt THANK YOU from all our Balama Team,
Bush Bunny Brenda
