Featured Missions Partner – November & December 2019:
Dawn and Eugene “Jinx” Reynecke – MOZAMBIQUE
“Working to see Christ Centered Churches among all African people.”
The Reyneckes have been serving in Espungabera in the Mossurize district. Jinx describes their ministry:
“Dawn and I are missionary team leaders in our area and currently we have 2 single ladies working with us (Jenn, from USA works with youth; Cecilia from Brazil works with Sunday School). Dawn works with ladies. Jinx works with the men. We all train the leadership of these groups to equip local Churches to reach the unreached. (There are around 17 unreached tribal groups in Mozambique). From February until October Dawn and Jinx teach at an informal Bible school which we started in 2003. Each month we meet for one week excepting during planting season. In 2018 we celebrated with 2 of the leaders who have been studying with us as they were ordained as full ministers. Dawn teaches literacy through Bible lessons. Forty ladies can now read and write and have their own Bibles. Satan tries to destroy especially new Christians by witchcraft and polygamy. Economically, nothing seems to get cheaper; the cost of living has risen substantially. The ongoing need for the Church at large is to commit to serious, regular prayer for unreached people groups, and also for the work in Espungabera and district.”
The Reynecke’s are currently on home assignment (furlough) from June 2019 until February 2020 and we hope to welcome them at St. Peters when they come to the Cape Town area. Stay tuned …
A few years ago, Jinx wrote an interesting article regarding Team Work, Church Planting, and a Better Way Forward. You can read it here: https://aimint.org/za/2011/05/09/team-work/
Cyclone Idai did much damage in Mozambique, and it affected the area in and around Espungabera quite badly. As a church we were able to contribute to the relief effort immediately after the disaster. Due to the flooding, the harvest for this year will be poor and there is a danger of famine. Pray for Mozambique and those still recovering from the cyclone.
- For a good continued Home Assignment with good connections with friends and supporters
- Continued re-building after cyclone Idai
- For the leaders and pastors that have been trained, that they would be strong and lead their people in God’s grace.
- Pray for the elections outcomes: for the salvation of those who are in leadership of the nation and or the Lord to surround the leaders with Godly advisors.
