Tomorrow, Monday 11 April, we receive here in Mozambique the immediate past President of the Law Society of England and Wales, Andrew Caplen. Following his visit to Uganda he is coming to support AMAC in meeting with Government and other institutions and to speak with lawyers and law students here about true access to justice. We pray these meetings and opportunities will go well.


These last few months have seen some exciting times for our AMAC offices in Maputo and in Beira. We’ve been privileged to share more about what the law says about protection of children and to continue to build relationships. We’ve also been privileged to assist clients.

The Baptist Church here in the South of Mozambique has its own assembly each year and this year, I was invited to take part in Macia, Gaza province, only a 3-4 hour drive from Maputo. It was a wonderful treat for me to get out of the city for a few days and meet with so many people from all over, to hear their stories and also to share a little of the work of AMAC (Association of Mozambican Christian Lawyers).


While I was enjoying the countryside in Macia, our Law Student / Assistant in the AMAC Maputo office...

Pace of life in Beira was quite relaxed - tranquil even compared to life here in Maputo. Beira people tell me the capital city is ‘muito agitado’ very busy - they’re right! People bustling between appointments, chapas (local mini buses) hardly stopping to allow passengers to hop on or off (with conductors calling out ‘chop chop’) and time flying too - it’s 2 ½ months since I arrived and I feel I’m running to keep up!


What’s happened in this time? Well, mainly I’ve been working to just meet people - network - for the Association of Mozambican Christian Advocates (AMAC). I’ve been continuing to work...

Here pictured, is the first Portuguese copy of Law and Justice Bible Studies, written by the Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship, UK and now translated into Portuguese through funding by them for the Association of Mozambican Christian Lawyers (AMAC). Holding the copy is Isaque (Legal Assistant of AMAC) and two of our Church friends who designed the cover and printed it for us. The studies have been helping lawyers in the UK to understand their role as Christians in the justice system for years and the version you see is now being proof read by Mozambican lawyers to check it fits the realities of life in Mozambique and soon it will be in use here.


As I make a move to...

We’ve had a real milestone - the Association of Mozambican Christian Advocates (AMAC) in Beira presented their first two community legal education seminars without non-Mozambican presenters. I went along to support - and take photos, but wasn’t needed beyond that.
Both were in a community about 12 km from the city - in a Baptist Church in Manga. The first was on a Saturday morning to parents of children who attend PEPE - a Church run pre-school -about child rights and protection. The young lawyer employed by AMAC, Isaque, and 3 other lawyers and I attended and as the roads were terrible, we walked...
