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.

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.

After some months away it’s lovely to be back in Beira to the warm welcomes – and the ‘tinha saudades para ti’ – I missed you - from friends, colleagues, Church and even the people who sell newspapers and bananas near my work place and home.

 

Not such a warm welcome from the electricity, sadly Beira has been experiencing long and regular power cuts, and many days and nights are spent without electricity. Now we seem to be having a lot more time with power than without, a real blessing. It has been, however, very hot and humid and no fans (air-conditioning isn’t part of our lives) has made working and living quite draining.

In April I had the pleasure of letting you know that Isaque Bonga was appointed as the first legal assistant for the Association of Mozambican Christian lawyers in Beira (AMAC – the A is ‘advogados’ - lawyers). He’s doing well in his work – seeing and assisting new clients, providing community legal education seminars and increasing the membership and the regular fellowship.

 

On 1 September, we welcomed Arsénio Chiconela as the first legal assistant in Maputo. Like Isaque, he has completed his law degree and has experience in what we would call a 'training contract’, but like Isaque, has some ongoing work to do to become...

Our 3 amazing Bob the Builders gave up 2 months each of their normal lives to come to Beira, Mozambique where they shared their skills, talents and love of God in a building project at Kedesh - an orphanage for boys.  Their names are Bill, Ashley and Drew (BAD) here they are:

 

They worked with the boys sharing their skills and helping them to put those skills into practice in building an office and accommodation. Although they came already fit and lean, after 2 months of hard physical work in high temperatures and eating...
