Mozambique Chinese Kick-Off Meeting

A wonderful report from Africa: Mozambique Chinese Kick-Off Meeting

Dear Friends: We really hope this note finds you all well; excuse us writing to so many of you at one shot, just want to share what for us was an outstanding event this past weekend, our first Chinese language meeting. We’ll continue to write separately, as we are able. We are sending much love to you all.
Saturday included a special field service arrangement with all our visitors from the Chinese Congregation in Johannesburg, South Africa, (check your maps in the Yearbook to see where the countries are in relation to each other) and following up on all our Chinese calls to make sure they were coming; of course, weeks before we started distributing printed invitations .

Image

Our field service party split up into six groups; this one was down in the Baixa.

Steve and Rondrigo finding a new contact.

On Sunday they began to arrive at the Kingdom Hall; here Rondrigo provides a brief tour of the New World Translation; it was fascinating to see their tremendous interest in the Bible, being able to actually hold one in their hands and read it.

Ana with Naice, one of Damaris’ calls. Behind a gentleman we met in field service on Saturday, he had just arrived from China the day before, and came to the meeting on Sunday.

Chairman not quite getting his tongue around it all.

Vincent, our main speaker, chose the perfect theme: How much meaning does your life have? I could see they paid rapt attention, following up all scriptures in the Bible.

Once again, their interest in the Word of God was outstanding

And how they enjoy singing!

For 18 of them, it was their first meeting ever. Afterwards a few late arrivals appeared, including . . .
