Four years ago, Pastor Ken Harrison from New Zealand sowed the valuable words ‘success to significance’ into our hearts. Instantly the truth of these words rang clearly. We needed to transition out of Mozambique, but raise up local leaders to carry on the ministry. That was just the beginning!
We had seen God move in many marvellous ways while pioneering Maziotela Ministries in Northern Mozambique, but now the importance was to see our new Mozambican leaders prepared and equipped for the next season. Ps Ken committed to visit Maziotela Ministries yearly during the following transitional and sometimes tempestuous phase. We understand now that Satan will do everything he can to prevent the next generation of believers continuing to build upon a successful foundation.
As part of this transition, Maziotela farm has been sold, and we (Colin and Jenny) will no longer be full-time in Mozambique, but returning to New Zealand as a base for our new season of ministry in missions. We’ll be visiting Mozambique bi-annually to mentor and support our local teams. Maziotela Ministries’ Leadership Training School and three village preschools will continue to establish churches equipped to impact local villages with a holistic presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
