Tobias and Heather

Serving in Mozambique

Tobias and Heather, along with their family, have been serving in Mozambique for over ten years. Since the beginning, Tobias and Heather have been strongly committed to serving God in a way that makes a real difference in people’s lives.

After many years of language and cultural acquisition and investigating the needs for a Mozambican-specific Ciyawo Bible translation, Tobias and Heather have been working together to make the dream of a Mozambican Yawo Bible reality. Having Scripture in the heart language is a vital component to seeing communities develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus.

Tobias and Heather are currently focused on Scripture engagement, and so Tobias is currently coordinating an Oral Bible Translation project in Mozambican Ciyawo. Focusing the project in orality ensures that the majority of Yawo people can engage with it, in contrast to the challenges of a traditional written version in communities where literacy rates are very low.

Tobias works daily with Yawo colleagues who function as translators, transcribers, and assistants. Checking the Bible translation work in Yawo communities also plays a big part of Tobias’ service among the Yawo in Mozambique and gives him the opportunity to visit a wide range of Yawo community members and leaders. Heather’s primary focus is to care for the home and educate Elijah, Rachel, and Lydia, which makes everything else possible.

​Tobias and Heather are currently in Australia preparing to return for their next term of service in Mozambique. They would love to share stories with you, your small group or church. Please contact the NSW/ACT State Office to connect with them.

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.
