September Updates

Writing these monthly posts always brings such a smile to my face. I love celebrating what our African leaders are doing.

First, I want to celebrate the team that God has so faithfully put together these last few years. Our African groups are under such good care, and it is a special thanks to this MOPS Volunteer Team that dedicates their time and resources to continue the success of this ministry. Thousands of lives (over 4,000 families to be exact) are changing because of these women as well as the leaders of all of the 160 African MOPS groups. 

In other big news, our newest Global Curriculum has finally been released! It's a beautiful collection of 12 devotionals for our groups to use in their meetings, with creative ideas to bring joy and practical application into their mothering experience while helping them take their next step towards Jesus.

We'll be working to get this translated into eight (!!) African languages over the next few months for release in early 2021.

As many lockdowns continue to ease, the African groups are trying to meet together again. Here are some great photos and stories of this past month:
