Thank you

To all of you, that have contributed with clothes and donations to Mozambique, thank you so much, on behalf of the patients at the Oncology Department - Central Hospital of Maputo.

It was enought to everybody from little children to seniors.

The "teacher" (as we call him) didn't waste time and tried his new outfit.

A special word for these special friends Ana Paula, Clara , Teresa and daughter Raquel, for the support and encoragement in this mission!

Mother's Day

My mother used to say: I carried you 9 months inside me!
Here in Mozambique, mothers could say: I carried you 9 months inside me and 3 years on my back!
Here in Mozambique, there is no license to rest for young mothers. From the sunrise to the sunset, they carry their babys all over the place. They go to get water and wood, they buy and they sell, they even work on the farm, and cook. Always in their child on the back.
I wonder if one day these man and woman would understand the sacrifice their mothers went through.

What a rainy day...

What a day!

Its 3 PM and suddenly gets dark, and drop by drop, in few seconds we can't see anything around but rain, and rain, and rain. The emergency lights are on, and we can hardly see the car in front of us.

People run all over the places trying to stay dry, but it seems that water is everywhere.
This is a happy day only for these little kids, playing on the rain, and smiling when we stoped to take the picture.

Have a nice trip back home...

Its incredible, but time runs!

Our friends, the Calaim's are now traveling back to Portugal, after 15 days visit to Mozambique, not only to know more about our ministry here in Maputo, but to visit Beira, where their younger son, Nuno is working on a short term misionary project.

As always, here is the special moment at Maputo International Airport. In 55 days, will be our turn...
