Mozambique is on the South East coast of Africa just west of the island of Madagascar. It is one of the nine Portuguese speaking African countries out of all 54 countries on the continent. It has a population of over 19 million. Back several years ago I think it ones one of the poorest if not the poorest countries in the world. They have faced many floods over the past several years which have left many homeless and many have also lost their lives.
I booked my tickets this evening so Lord willing I will depart from Detriot March 19 and fly into Maputo the capitol of Mozambique on March 21. I will have about a 22 hr lay over there before I continue to fly North to Lichinga which is just west of Lake Malawi in the Northern part of the country.
I will be staying with the Wilcox Family who are missionaries originally from
The Wilcox Family
Here is a list of projects that they are hoping to finish this year. I am looking forward to being able to partner with the Wilcox and help with some of these projects.

Yes there is a lot to do so if you have some time and you feel like God would have you help out in someway, you could get in touch with the Wilcox and they would be more then happy to have you come. I would appreciate your prayers for this up coming trip. It seems I am stepping out into the unknown, which is a little unnerving, but also thrilling to see how God works and what He has for me to learn.
