Our aim as OM Mozambique, since 1999, has been to train Mozambicans to be missionaries to the least reached areas of Zambezia and other northern provinces in the country. We operate one of the only missions training schools in Mozambique.
We actually began working in Mozambique in 1995, training local pastors and leaders through seminars. This training would soon become an established discipleship training programme.
Mozambique has been badly broken from colonialism and decades of civil war, and back in 1995, it was considered the world’s poorest nation. The government has worked hard to strengthen the economy, lay true democratic foundations and bind up wounds from the past.
Religious freedom is another significant development in Mozambique. Between 1975 and 1982, the agenda was exclusive propagation of Marxism and “all-out war on the churches”; freedom of religion was not established until 1988.
