Wishing all of our U.S. readers a very Happy Thanksgiving Holiday! There is so much to be grateful for in MOPS Africa. Let's celebrate all that God has done.
And on that day you will say, "Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; make them remember that His name is exalted." Praise the LORD in song, for He has done glorious things; let this be known throughout the earth. Isaiah 12:4-5
These last few weeks we have welcomed some wonderful new additions to our MOPS Africa Volunteer Team. The following leaders, all from Ghana, are our newest MOPS Africa Cohort Leaders:
Thank you for your willingness to set into a leadership position to better the lives of women all over Ghana!
Additionally, we welcomed the following two pastors as MOPS Africa Ambassadors. These men of God help connect churches, organizations, pastors, leaders, and moms to the MOPS ministry and grow the awareness of MOPS in their communities. We are grateful for your service in this ministry.

In very sad news, a dear sister and coordinator of the Yamoussoukro MOPS group in Ivory Coast - Viviane- passed away this month due to illness. Please keep Viviane's husband, children, and MOPS community in your prayers. We are so grateful for the gift that Viviane has left the mothers in Yamoussoukro. May God use her willingness to serve during this life to leave a legacy for generations to come.
This month MOPS Africa participated in another 24-hours of prayer event. We had 54 MOPS leaders and friends from around the world join us in prayer to God for this ministry!
MOPS South Africa had several leadership events this month as Sonja traveled to Johannesburg to visit with two MOPS South Africa coordinators in Free State- Tanya and Santie - meeting them in person for the first time. It was a wonderful opportunity to go through training and exchange encouragement and ideas for meetings. Sonja also hosted an event locally for some Cape Town coordinators.
