The economic impact of the lockdowns and the medical issues many have faced this year are nothing but terrible. And my prayers go out to each of the leaders and moms that are struggling right now. Our ministry encourages and equips moms. We believe that better moms truly make a better world, through a relationship with Jesus and their local church. When church is impossible to attend, and when we can't meet in person for encouragement and community with friends, we have to cling even harder to the only One who is always there, lockdown or not. May our strength and refuge be in Him today and every day. May He see us out of the other side of this valley.
This month in MOPS Africa, saw a rise in trainings and new groups as some areas have been able to open up recently! We have recently welcomed 24 (!!) new groups in Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria. God is good.
|Blessed Mothers, Nairobi MOPS - led by Carol|
|Kisii MOPS, visited by coach Pamela and country coordinator Sylvia|
|Nakuru MOPS, visited by coach Pamela and country coordinator Sylvia|
|North Rift Valley conference on Oct 30, led by coach Janet and attended by leaders all over the region representing six MOPS groups|
I want to send a special congratulations to our several MOPS mommas who have had babies these last few months. And specifically to one of our group coordinators - Rosemary in Tanzania.
And finally, a congratulations to MOPS Zambia Country Coordinator for her ordination this month. May God be with your always, Pastor Favour!
Here are a few other beautiful faces we saw this month:
