"But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”
2 Chron. 15:7

     -Mozambique is one of the worlds poorest countries, sadly to say. The average income base is $1.25 to $2.00 a day (hard labor).
"Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy."
Prov. 31:8,9

    -In most of this country; there is still a large lack of safe drinking water, education, and health facilities. 

        "Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered."

    -"With 16 years of civil war along with repeated floods, droughts and cyclones have contributed to widespread poverty. A high incidence of HIV/AIDS has left many ill and orphaned." []
Yet, because of the newer government leaders being raised in missionary schools; the economic and political leadership is moving to be strong, since their Civil War.

"Suffering has created a spiritual hunger resulting in churches being planted, but there is a great need for better trained leaders for these churches. Christian agencies have been encouraged by the government to develop programs to help..."

     -With our 28 years experience in the ministry (25 being senior pastors); we want to come alongside the Pastors, their wives and children to help encourage, affirm, disciple and be a strength to them. We understand this is VITAL to the church of Jesus Christ; who need strong, spiritual leaders - who are GROUNDED in the Word of God. As they are taught to pray & persevere even  in the times of difficulty.

*Standing with them, beside them and for them!

    -Majority of the Pastors in the Mozambican church are bi-vocational (of which again we can identify), have families to support and people to minister to on a daily basis.

     -We believe God heard their heart cry and laid a burden deep within our soul; as we too,  have cried out (in times past) to our Lord in our weariness as Pastors and parents with working full time.

    -Also, because of this: The Snowden Family will minister in churches scattered abroad. We will help with starting new works, and come alongside fellow missionaries and church leaders to serve in any capacity as needed.

    -Will you come with us? Your monthly support is doing just that. 

“Remember this—you can’t serve God and Money, but you can serve God with money.” — Billy Graham

    -You prayers as you give are an empowerment from our Mighty God!
"God shapes the world by prayer. The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil." — E.M. Bounds
"Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth."
1 Jn. 3:18


Christ has no hands but our hands to do His work today
He has no feet but our feet to lead men in the way
He has no tongue but our tongue to tell men how He died
He has no help but our help to bring them to His side.
We are the only Bible the careless world will read,
We are the sinner’s gospel; we are the scoffer’s creed;
We are the Lord’s last message, given in word and deed;
What if the type is crooked? What if the print is blurred?
What if our hands are busy with other work than His?
What if our feet are walking where sin’s allurement is?
What if our tongue is speaking of things His lips would spurn?
How can we hope to help Him or welcome His return?

"Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed."
Proverbs 19:17
