We’re Going to Africa!
Early this fall, Center Pointe is sending four of its family to Pemba, Mozambique! We’re visiting our Global Partner, Liz Gliem, who manages a farm there in the bush. We’ll be spending a lot of our time on the farm, but we’ll also be able to help out in many ways at the Iris base in Pemba that has a children’s school and orphanage. One weekend as well, we’ll be able to go on outreach and connect with outlying villages that have never heard the name of Jesus before.
The farm grows lots of vegetables and many corn fields to help provide food for the local towns. But they specialize in an amazing tree that can withstand the harsh hot environment. Moringa trees, when their leaves are dried into powder, have tons of nutrients like calcium, potassium, and protein! Most Mozambiquans eat rice and beans everyday so a little powder on their meal helps bolster their health!
We’d love you to join us as a prayer and financial partner.
We have a specific goal for both of our partner groups. We have a goal of 300 prayer team partners who will regularly pray for us during our trip and celebrate with us all that God is doing. Regular updates will be sent out via email. We have a goal of raising $10,000 as a team, which will cover all the costs associated with travel as well ministry expenses. Mozambique is very far away.
These are two ways that you can partner with our Mozambique team:
• Partner with us through prayer. Prayer coverage is absolutely necessary. There are many ministry opportunities to share the gospel with those we will be working with on the farm and even the few days going out into villages talking with people and speaking boldly about who Jesus Christ is and what He has done.
• Partner with us through financial support. Ask the Lord if he would have you partner with us financially through a gift of money. All donations are tax deductible. If you scroll to the bottom of this page you’ll find a Paypal button to send your online gift. Or checks can be made to Center Pointe Church with “Mozambique” noted on the memo line.
Checks can be sent to:
Center Pointe Church, PO Box 346 Centerburg, OH 43011
If you do feel God is asking you to join this adventure, let us keep you up-to-date! If you give online, put your email address in the comment box. And if you send a check, slip a note in the envelope with your email so we can keep connected.
We’re excited about what God has in store for us on this journey, and for those in Pemba as well! Pray with us that God would provide for us and our families while we’re away, that God can use us to move His kingdom while we are there, and that He would grow us into better examples of Jesus for the future!
