20 Years of Partnership


By Susan Sneed

Craig Stevenson, the coordinator of the Mozambique Initiative, lifted up the 20 year partnership with Mozambique and celebrated that in a recent trip. The bishops of both areas renewed the memorandum of understanding continuing that partnership. 
“It’s been a great partnership,” Stevenson said. “More that $8.2 million has been given for evangelism, water projects, building project, scholarship and other work. Nearly $2 million on the Imagine No Malaria campaign. One of the most important ministries has been the purchase and distribution of Bibles. 
“On multiple trips I have witnessed the power of actually handing a Bible to a person,” Stevenson said. “And the mission continues.” He cited the reconstruction of chapels, parsonages and even an orphanage after last year’s Cyclone Dineo. There were also 2018 partnerships available in the form of 23 church partnerships and 27 student partnerships.
