Ben and Sam

Serving in Mozambique

Ben and Samantha, with their three children Elizabeth, Anna, and Finlay, live in the capital city of Mozambique’s Niassa province, Lichinga. They have lived there, serving among the Yawo since 2014.

There is no suitable school available for their three children and teaching them is one of Samantha’s key responsibilities. She is also learning culture and language with a local language nurturer, Ania, who she loves spending time with and sees as her Mozambican mum. They have a close bond and Samantha loves doing life together with her.

Ben is grateful for the opportunities he is having to share the Gospel and disciple followers of Jesus from Muslim backgrounds. He meets weekly with a group of men out the front of the main market place in Lichinga to read Scripture together and also meets regularly with a group of believers who are earnestly seeking to follow Jesus the Messiah.

While life in Niassa can often be challenging, Ben and Samantha feel very fortunate to work there with Baptist Mission Australia and praise God for the way He is working in people’s lives, in families and among wider communities.

Through their day-to-day life, Jean-Claude and Joyce are engaging with people wholistically, responding to their spiritual and physical needs.

Jean-Claude and Joyce share a passionate love for God and people and desire to see the Yawo follow Jesus within their cultural context. They are building relationships with their Yawo neighbours and investing in their culture and language learning with a local language nurturer so they can effectively communicate with their Yawo friends.

They are grateful for the prayers and financial support they receive as they actively seek to build meaningful relationships amongst the Yawo and see communities transformed as they follow Jesus in ways that make sense to them.
