We believe that together, with hearts as one, we can give the love of Father God and provide a better future for our kids. Besides our children, we work with our neighborhood and other villages of Maputo’s district. We minister to poor children and families in a village called Catembe and we also do outreaches in Maputo’s theaters to young people. We have a big truck and we travel doing outreaches for many cities in Mozambique.
