Dondo

We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me. Colossians 1:28 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body Christ my be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13

Our vision is to guide the churches under our care to self-support, self-govern, and self-extend, by supporting and not dominating, going low, and humbling ourselves to empower natives to step forward, stand in the Lord, and fully embrace the fact that they can move in oneness with the Holy Spirit, to support their work financially and spiritually, depending on the Holy Spirit to show them who to elect as leaders, confidently solve conflict within their church body and take charge of the spread of the gospel in their nation, multiplying disciples, serving their communities an planting churches.

About Dondo

Dondo is located in the Province of Sofala and is situated on the National Road number 6 that runs from the Port in Beira Mozambique on the East Indian Ocean through the country into neighboring Zimbabwe.
We are a center for training Bible teachers, worship leaders, children’s ministry leaders, women’s ministry leaders, and pastors for the Iris churches in Central Mozambique. We also serve the community in the areas of health care, preschool, prison ministry and caring for widowed and disabled men and woman.

Discipleship and Evangelism:
We do not want to become so inward focused with discipling our churches and pastors as to become stagnant. We press forward with Jesus Films both at our established churches as well as new villages. When we do a film at an established church, the members come along for house visits preceding the film to pray for the sick and spread the word. We have a heart to establish, grow, and disciple the churches through evangelism, training seminars, and have written evangelism training booklets and travel throughout the provinces to teach and follow up with churches.

Pre-school:
Knowledge is power, and you have to start somewhere! Our center provides pre-schooling for 4 and 5-year-olds, reserved for the most vulnerable in our local community. We have wonderful Mozambican teachers, helpers, and a cook who prepares breakfast for the children every morning. The staff not only instructs the students during school hours, but also visits those who have missed subsequent days to make sure they are in good health, all their needs are met, and encourage them to return to school. The teachers have invested their own time and resources to help the children with clothing, medicine, and whatever other needs they catch wind of.

Mercy Ministries:
We are privileged to serve the ~110 widowed and disabled men and women who are a part of our distribution program. There is a monthly distribution of money and some living essentials, with special gifts (like grass mats and blankets) thrown in throughout the year. Each year we provide school uniforms for the orphans who live with these men and women. Help is also given to fix houses or rebuild roofs when needed—the heavy rains melt their houses of mud and sticks, so they never last long. We visit and pray for those who are sick, take them to the hospital when needed, and cover costs for medicine along with providing spiritual food in the way of preaching and teaching.
