The Ndau of Mozambique
Scripture: “And fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was extolled. Also many of those who were now believers came, confessing and divulging their practices. And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord continued to increase and prevail mightily.” (Acts 19: 17-20) May it be so among the Ndau!

It is the time of year when the folks are preparing their fields by burning them. Sadly the fires are getting out of control and burning houses to the ground. Many have lost their houses already. Please pray for good rains this year so that the folks can have good harvests.
Recently one of our leaders David went to be with the Lord. He was a wonderful Godly man serving in a very dark spiritual area. At his funeral we had several witchdoctors and prophets. David was a shining light in that darkness. Pray with us for a God chosen leader to take his place.
