Exodus 6:6, NIV
Therefore, say to the Israelites: “I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.”

Pray that the Mwani people will long for being freed from the bondage of spiritual slavery.

Mwani People of Mozambique

by AS

The Mwani people tell stories of Muslim traders who invaded their land 1,100 years ago. The entire Mwani tribe became Muslim so they could avoid being enslaved. Now the Mwani call themselves Muslim, but they also follow an African traditional religion. Mwani means “beach,” so not surprisingly, this 105,000 strong group of fishermen and farmers live close to the water along a 200-mile stretch of the northern Mozambican coastline.
The New Testament has been translated into Mwani, but most of them cannot read their own language. Fortunately, there is an audio recording on-line. Global Recordings Network (GRN) has audio Bible teaching in four dialects of Mwani, and the JESUS Film is also available in their language.
Ten years ago a team of evangelists planted the gospel seed among them that has blossomed into a harvest. A missionary couple has planted a church among them. Two established mission organizations, CAPRO (a Nigerian mission agency) and AIM Int’l., are now training Mozambican missionaries. A Christian radio station, Radio Nuru, now broadcasts in Mwani.

Praise the Lord for many new Mwani believers! Pray that mission efforts among them will bear much fruit. Pray that Mozambican churches will support their new missionaries with faithful prayer and finances.
